DUBLIN, Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Assessment of China's Market for Sealant" report to their offering.

The scope of the market is defined as domestic mainland China sales and imports, which was valued at over RMB 12.7 Bn, or USD 2 Bn, at the end of 2014

The report features in-depth analysis for all sealants (Polyurethane, Polysulfide, Silicone, Acrylic and Other sealants) used in Mainland China, in single component and two component configurations, providing market figures and breakdowns such as the market share of leading players, output compared to production capacity, and the proportion of revenue from different applications for each of these four product segments. It also identifies, describes and assesses the impact of current market forces as viewed by current market players.

The study finds that the market will continue to grow at above GDP growth rate in the next few years, driven by China's continued rapid development in key end-user industries. Recently there has been a strong regulatory push to incentivize use of environmentally-friendly products, which in combination with regulations penalizing the use of polluting products, has put pressure on sealant using manufacturers to opt for polyurethane or silicone sealant. These two products have low VOC emissions, long shelf-life, and high recyclability over alternate sealants. While SR and PU have key applications for construction, infrastructure, transportation, packaging, automotive, electronic assembly, and manufacturing industries,

The electronics assembly is forecast to continue to have the highest growth. In this industry sealants are used for the manufacturing and assembly of electronic components. In total, these end-user industries are reported to have consumed over 430,000 metric tons of sealants in China during 2014. Despite the overall economic slowdown, which will impact many downstream industries, suppliers are generally optimistic about demand for sealants in the coming years. With increasing competition in the silicone sealant market, the PU sealant market has the best opportunities for multinational suppliers, as demand for high quality products remains strong. Although SR sealants will continue to be the largest market segment, the PU sealant market is expected to expand faster than the SR sealant market.

This market study draws on a three month in-depth primary survey of 86 of the market's suppliers, channel players and experts. The report features in-depth analysis of the 4 key sealant products, SR, PU, PS, and AC sealants. Major areas for each product segment covered include: market size and shares, five-year projections, market structure, pricing trends, distribution, an assessment of key suppliers and more. Recent developments to product technology, the dynamics of end-user demands, and application trends, are all addressed and thoroughly examined.
