The global bioadhesive industry is rapidly gaining prominence due to the evolution of biomaterials and the benefits of bioadhesives in a host of applications across sectors. Though cost, reliability and shelf-life leave room for improvement, research is underway to address these challenges and quicken commercialisation.

Discovering viable resources

Further, bioadhesives made from animal waste matter and even tissues disturb the sentiments of certain users. The consequent shift to plant-based alternatives gives birth to a newer problem of lower functionality and adhesion. Investing in further research projects will hasten the discovery of viable resources available in large quantities and bring some solution to resource limitations. In this regard, more funding will help technology and product development. In terms of adhesion strength, tissue-sealants can seal the injured tissue for longer duration, thereby improving the sustenance of bioadhesives.

The study reviews technology developments that might impact the adoption of bioadhesives in various sectors. It focuses on existing adhesive systems, their structure, functioning mechanism and limitations. It also highlights emerging applications across sectors. Further, this study includes detailed technology analysis and industry trends evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants.
