DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wvlmnd/hot_melt) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Hot Melt Adhesives Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

Hot melt adhesives (HMA) are defined as adhesives that melt and flow on application of heat, and solidify on cooling to give a strong adhesion. HMA are 100% thermoplastic solids at temperatures below 80°C. They are applied in a molten state at temperatures that range from 120°C to 180°C depending on the applications and materials that are to be bonded. Hot melt adhesives form strong mechanical bonds that help them adhere to a wide range of substrates.

One of the major advantages of hot melt adhesives is that they deliver cost saving benefits owing to their 100% solid nature; also, the entire volume is used as an adhesive, while other conventional adhesives lose 50% to 70% of their volume when used in an application. Hot melt adhesives can also be created in various forms that include pellets, slugs, and blocks for bulk application, or stick and continuous rope forms for heated gun applicators.

The slow recovery of the global economy following the financial crisis of 2011 that has impacted major industries such as construction, automotive, packaging, and labeling. This is in turn is expected to have a strong impact on the hot melt adhesives market till 2018. Besides that, strong industrial growth in the Asia-Pacific region is also expected to boost the demand for hot melt adhesives and will have an impact on the growth of this market.
