– Adhesives market in China is expected to benefit from rising technological developments, increasing foreign investments and healthy growth in domestic end-user industries
China adhesives market has witnessed growth due to robustly growing manufacturing sector in the country, which is evident by the fact that the country's manufacturing PMI has remained above 50 during 2009-13, with only a few exceptions. China's import dependence decreased by 5% in 2012, due to establishment of various new raw material plants across the country, while the country's exports have shown an upward trend, registering a growth rate of around 6% in the same year. The country has always been an attractive market for foreign investors due to availability of cheap labor, growing middle class population and easy procurement of raw materials. Henkel Co. Ltd., the global leader in adhesives business holding around 26% of global market share, has opened the world's largest adhesive production plant with an annual capacity of around 428,000 tons in Shanghai, China in 2013. Such huge investments would positively influence and drive the adhesives market in China in coming years.
