  • FEICA brochure 2019: Showcasing our industry's contribution to the economy and circular economy

    Our industry's contribution to the European economy and to a more circular economy

    The global market for adhesives and sealants reached a value of 54.5 billion euros in 2018, with Europe (comprising Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe plus Turkey) holding a share of 30.8%. In addition, they can improve product efficiency and circularity to help create a more sustainable society.

    The FEICA brochure was created to showcase not only what we do as an association, but also the overall significance of the adhesives and sealants industry.

  • Description brochure - European Adhesives & Sealants Market 2019-2024

    This is the Report description and Table of Content of the European Adhesives & Sealants Market 2019-2024, prepared by Smithers on behalf of FEICA.

    The aim of this programme is to provide market statistics from an independent source which are updated at regular intervals. The analysis is based on primary research and consists of market knowledge obtained by direct interviews from the adhesives and sealants industry (formulators, raw material producers, equipment suppliers) and analysed by Smithers.

    The geographic scope of the study encompasses Europe, including Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) plus Turkey. The European region is split into 16 regional markets, which are analysed by market segment and product category.

    The study follows the harmonised FEICA-ASC-CATIA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual. Furthermore, the 200+ page report is structured in such a way as to facilitate international comparisons between Europe, NAFTA and the Asia-Pacific region. The markets of the latter two regions are analysed in separate companion reports offered by the Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC).

    The market size is defined for the year 2018 and a demand forecast for the period 2019-2024 is also provided. The statistical data are reported in tonnes and euro currency.

  • FEICA recommendation to substitute GLYMO in 2020 in applications intended for food contact For members

    With regards to the suspicion that GLYMO ( [3-(2,3-epoxypropoxy)propyl]trimethoxy silane, CAS No 2530-83-8, FCM 1068 ) has genotoxic potential FEICA recommends that its members substitute GLYMO in 2020 in applications intended for food contact. 

    In order to get a better view of industry use of GLYMO and ensure that our responsibilities are met, FEICA would like to ask member companies to  answer a short questionnaire (not more than 5 questions). The results will only be communicated in aggregated format and the identity as well as the name of the company of all respondents will be kept anonymous. We would appreciate your cooperation very much! 

    If your company is producing adhesives for food contact applications and if you have adhesives containing GLYMO in your portfolio, please answer the following questionnaire:

    Although this recommendation is not strictly confidential we would advice you to not circulate it widely at this moment as it may cause unnecessary concern.
