The European Adhesive and Sealant Industry Facts & Figures 2020
Although adhesives and sealants play an essential role in a huge range of consumer, professional and industrial products, they are largely invisible once applied. As a result, there is little awareness of the adhesive and sealant industry and the benefits it brings.
The aim of FEICA’s 2020 Facts & Figures is to provide a concise overview of the European adhesive and sealant industry. The global market for adhesives and sealants reached a value of 50 billion euros in 2020, with Europe holding a share of almost 35% (see below).
Our specialty chemical sector, which represents about 2% of the total European chemical industry's turnover, contributes more than 17 billion euros to the EU economy and employs more than 45,000 people.
