Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/46qbgq/retail_and_trade) has announced the addition of the "Retail and Trade Adhesives Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis" report to their offering.
AMA Research are pleased to announce the publication of the first edition of the report Retail and Trade Adhesives Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis'. The report incorporates original input and primary research, and represents an up-to-date and perceptive review of the market and its development.
In 2011, the UK market for retail and trade adhesives was estimated to be worth £156 million. This represents a rise of 2% on 2010. As a mature market, the adhesives market generally follows the economy and has therefore experienced difficult trading conditions in recent years. The market is expected to return to modest rates of growth of 1-3% once the economy and the market recovers, boosted by the expected improvement in output in new build and RMI.
Imports of adhesives grew by 6% in 2011 and the market remains under pressure from imports from Asia and Eastern Europe. This is mainly attributed to the large global operators consolidating manufacturing in lower cost overseas areas.
Although exports improved by 19% in 2011, the UK remains a net importer of adhesives and indications are that it will be increasingly dominated by lower cost imports, with domestic manufacturing becoming less viable as the industry becomes increasingly global in its approach toward supply and marketing.
The adhesives market is expected to experience no growth in 2012, as trading conditions remain volatile and the economy remains flat. In the medium term, once the market has recovered, it is expected to return to modest growth levels of 1-3%.
By 2016 the market is forecast to be on its way to recovery resulting in a market value forecast of £173 million, which will represent an 11% growth on 2011. This will be driven by the improving economy but limited by the maturity of the market overall.
