London, UK (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
In 2012, the European demand for sealants exceeded 533.8 thousand tonnes. It is poised to register 1.5% growth annually through 2017. Silicones represent the dominant segment of the European sealants market, accounting for a share of nearly 40%. It is followed by polyurethanes (PU) with a 17% market-share.
The demand for sealants is highly dependent on the state of the construction industry. New buildings construction and renovation works are predicted to pose slow growth rates of approximately 0.3-0.6% in Europe. Substantial growth in construction activity has been already registered in Germany, Russia, Austria, Romania, Turkey and Holland. Europe’s sealant consumption is influenced by local regulations, such as norms on the use and labeling of products containing isocyanates and standards for manufacturing sealed units.
