U.S. adhesive demand continues growth.


According to a new study, Adhesives to 1995, by Luci Weisenbach of the Freedonia Group Inc., Cleveland, the demand for adhesives in the wood product and construction field will climb to 2.8 billion pounds by 1995.

The greatest use of wood adhesives is for manufacturing plywood, particleboard and hardboard. In 1990, plywood makers used 705 million pounds of adhesives and demand is expected to go up to 780 million by 1995 and 865 million by the year 2000. Particleboard and hardboard uses combined for 577 million pounds of adhesives in 1990; adhesive use for those products is expected to jump to 667 million in 1995 and 758 million in 2000. For additional information, see the accompanying chart.
