NEW YORK, NY - Growth in the construction industry is expected to boost the demand for wood products. This would lead to growth in demand for wood adhesives and binders, especially for structural bonding applications. However, volatile feedstock prices for petroleum-based wood adhesives and binders and regulations on chemicals emitting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are expected to hamper the growth of the wood adhesives and binders market. Extensive research, especially on bio-based chemistries, and new product development with low VOC emissions is expected to provide growth opportunities in the near future.
