Global Manual Glue Guns Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A manual glue gun is a hand-held device that uses a trigger to extrude hot melt adhesive. It is important for many applications, such as bonding fabric, wood trim, and other materials together.

Hot Melt Glue Guns:

Hot melt glue guns are used to bond various materials such as paper, plastics, leather and metals. The product is available in two forms which include a gun and a cartridge. Hot melt glue guns have gained popularity due to its ease of use and speed in comparison with other traditional methods of bonding.

Cool Melt Glue Guns:

Cool melt glue guns are used to apply pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) in a wide range of materials including paper, plastics, foams and textiles. The product is available with two different operating modes: automatic and manual. In the automatic mode, the gun has a sensor that detects the weight of objects placed on it; once triggered, it applies high or low pressure as per requirement.

Application Insights:

The home decorations application segment led the global manual glue guns market in 2017. Manual gluing is a popular method used to assemble various home dĩcor products such as picture frames, mats, wall hangings, and decorative trays. The product is widely preferred due to its ease of use and convenient storage options. In addition, the process of assembling these products by hand helps create a personal touch that no machine can ever provide.

Electronics was the second largest application segment in 2017 owing to increasing demand for electronic devices across the globe. Electronic devices require strong bonding between components which cannot be achieved using conventional methods such as hot melt or robotic welding equipment due to their high temperature requirements making them unusable for this purpose (above 120°C).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing spending power, rising disposable income, and growing population in emerging economies such as China and India. In addition, rapid industrialization coupled with government support for infrastructure development has led to an increased demand for manual labor in construction activities. This factor is anticipated to drive product demand over the coming years.

Europe was estimated at USD X million in 2017 owing to high product utilization across several industries including automotive, electronics & appliances assembly line production sector of developed countries such as Germany and U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for manual glue guns in the industrial and construction sectors as a result of their high bonding strength and low cost.
  • Rising demand for manual glue guns from small businesses, craftsmen, and hobbyists due to the easy portability and affordability of these devices.
  • Growing popularity of DIY (Do It Yourself) projects, which has led to an increase in the use of manual glue guns by consumers for various applications such as home repairs, furniture assembly, etc.
  • Technological advancements that have resulted in the development of more user-friendly and ergonomic models of manual glue guns with enhanced features such as adjustable temperature settings and quick-heating capabilities.
  • The increasing trend towards green living has led to a rise in the demand for eco-friendly adhesive products such as manual glue guns that do not contain any harmful chemicals or solvents
