The increase in usage of UV adhesive in various medical applications is propelling the global UV adhesives market. UV adhesives are applied onto a wide variety of medical products including catheters, IV delivery systems, endoscopes, and cannulas. They provide biocompatibility, improved durability, lubricity, and resistance to chemicals and scratches. Several players have taken strategic initiatives, such as capacity expansion, in order to expand their UV adhesives business, owing to high demand for UV adhesives in various industrial applications. This is also projected to boost the UV adhesives market during the forecast period.



For instance, in March 2019, BASF SE increased its manufacturing capacity for UV acrylic hot-melt adhesives, which are sold under the brand name of acResin, at its Ludwigshafen site in Germany. Through this move, the company strengthened its position as a leading solution provider for various applications in the adhesives sector. High cost of UV adhesives vis-à-vis conventional adhesives is likely to restrain the global UV adhesives market during the forecast period. The cost of an adhesive and a UV lamp is high. On the other hand, conventional adhesives are inexpensive and possess similar bonding properties to that of UV adhesives. This is expected to hamper the UV adhesives market in the near future.
