The sealant is the type of mechanical seal and material used to lump the passage of fluids through the surface or joints or openings in material, whereas an adhesive is a chemical mixture used for joining two surfaces. The adhesive and sealants both are similar in technologies and chemicals formulated and also used for a wide range of applications. Additionally, adhesive and sealants come under the same industry but their uses are distinct in various applications. Generally, adhesives are used for applications related to holding and bonding owing to their features such as high tensile, and shear strength. Moreover, sealants are mostly used to resist relative movements of substrates and to fill gaps due to greater flexibility but in terms of strength, it is lower than adhesives.
The factors driving the growth of the market includes usage of adhesive and sealants in the applications such as vehicles and aircraft which help in weight reduction. Accordingly, the automotive industry is replacing welding techniques of the engine parts with products of adhesive and sealants, which improves the fuel efficiency owing to the reduction in weight. Recently, increase in adoption of adhesive and sealants in the construction industry for glass building infrastructures which are mostly preferred by the organization to improve the look of the structure; hence, sealants are used for installing glass sheets inside the panel to attain a waterproof structure. Furthermore, the adhesive is used extensively in the disposable medical device sector owing to the improved methods of processing and technology. However, the factors contribute to flourishing the growth of adhesives and sealants market is due to advancements in the medical procedures and the geriatric population.
