DUBLIN, Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wood Adhesives and Binders Market for Cabinets, Flooring & Plywood, Furniture & Subcomponents, Windows & Doors, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
Adhesive refers to a binding substance applied to the surface of materials. Derived from various sources, adhesives have been used in various forms since historic times. However, modern day adhesives were commercially developed for the first time in 1960. Adhesives are available in both natural and synthetic forms.
Wood adhesives and binders adhere or bond to wood surfaces or wood particles to make structural or nonstructural wood panels. Wood adhesives and binders are mostly used for making plywood, cabinets, structural frames, windows, doors, furniture, and subcomponents among others. These are also used in permanent or temporary applications in various structural and nonstructural panels.
Market players are investing in research activities to develop new products with lower volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions under pressure from regulations against such chemicals. Regulatory authorities such as the United States Environment Protection Agency (USEPA), and the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) in Europe have laid down strict regulations against the use of environmentally harmful chemicals as an initiative towards conservation of the environment.
