The growth in the global polysulfide sealants market is ascribed to the huge funding poured into the construction industry worldwide. High demand for top-notch sealants in high performing industries like solar and wind energy equipment, aerospace industries is likely to open up avenues for growth of the global polysulfide sealants market over the period of forecast.

In addition, the growing demand for lightweight vehicles in the automotive industry is expected to augmented the use of sealants. In addition, increased use of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and environment friendly sealants is expected to propel market growth.

Polysulfide sealants are intended for joints that need to be immersed in liquids for prolong periods of time. Polysulfide sealants are versatile synthetic elastomers that are used across a host of industries such as electronic, computer, appliance, chemical, electrical, metalworking, and automotive. They are suitable for a wide range of applications such as aircraft fuel tanks, industrial tank liners, and electrical potting. They are commonly used in swimming pools, cooling towers, wastewater treatment plants, fountains, petrochemical plants, and fuel and chemical storage tanks.

Polysulfide sealants are resins that provide flexible and chemically resistant sealing. Polysulfide sealants exhibit excellent chemical resistance and good performance in submerged conditions. They have excellent resistance to fuels, salt water, ozone, and sunlight. Polysulfide sealants exhibit properties of underwater curing capability, high dielectric strength, high chemical resistance, and raised physical strength. In addition, they exhibit resistance to impact, shock, vibration, and therma cycling and low and high cryogenic temperature serviceability. Polysulfide sealants provide waterproof seal minimizing the risk of water leakage that may cause damage or erosion. Polysulfide sealant formulations provide good working flow, corrosion protection, and superior electrical insulation.

Polysulfide sealants are metal free and display long-term resistance to natural gas, kerosene, crude oils, gasoline, gaseous fuels, crude oils and its derivatives. Moreover, they are easy to apply due to low drippage characteristics and display excellent adhesion properties.

Polysulfide sealants are used in the aviation industry to seal aircraft fuselages and fuel tanks. They provide a secure, long lasting seal to these aviation components as they are resistant to fuels and other chemicals. 

Global Polysulfide Sealants Market: Overview

Polysulfide sealants are specialty sealants that find application in sealing joints that are to remain immersed in liquids for a protracted period of time. They are mostly used in chemical storage tanks, fuel tanks, swimming pools, fountains, and petrochemical plants, among others. Polysulfide sealants are available in the market in the form of pourable formulations or sealant guns and provide substantial resistance from fuel and solvents. They also do their job well within a wide temperature range and are used in sealing of aircraft windows and in sound proof windows in buildings.

Global Polysulfide Sealants Market: Trends and Opportunities

The unique perceived benefits of polysulfide sealants is their ability to protect against corrosion, good flowability, and enhanced electrical insulation. Additionally, they have high physical and dielectric strength and are resistant to vibration, thermal cycling, and impact. They also function well at ambient or temperatures marginally higher than ambient temperature. Polysulfide sealants are unaffected by ozone and UV and bring about superior quality adhesion in similar and dissimilar substrates. They are also impermeable, flex crack resistant, and unaffected by a wide variety of chemicals. Because of all the aforementioned properties, polysulfide sealants enjoy healthy demand in industrial tank liners, aircraft fuel tanks, offshore structures, dual pane insulated glass windows, marine applications, and aerospace, among others. Other niche applications of polysulfide sealants include hoses, dental molding compounds, gaskets, etc.

The burgeoning building and construction industry and the aerospace industry have been at the forefront of stimulating the global market for polysulfide sealants. In the building and construction industry, for example, the increasing trend of fixing sound proof windows has fuelled a major uptick in demand. Further, polysulfide sealants are extensively used in swimming pools and chemical storage tanks. Countering the growth in the polysulfide sealants market is the expensiveness of polysulfide sealants. However, going forward, it is expected that advancements in technology will bring down manufacturing costs thereby reducing the price of polysulfide sealants which will fillip their demand.
