ASC SEEKS PROPOSALS FOR TWO NEW MARKET STUDIES


Central/South American Market and Pressure Sensitive Adhesives a Research Focus for Members


June 20, 2013, Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) today issues Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of two new market reports:  Central/South America and Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA).  The new market reports would round out ASC’s market report program, adding to the existing North American Market Report and Asia Market Report, and provide ASC member companies solid tools to gauge the size and scope of important geographic market segments, and an important technology focus area.


“In ASC’s 2013 Member Value Survey, 70% of respondents indicated expanding the Council’s market report efforts would be the best value driver for membership, and these RFPs are a direct result of members alerting ASC to what they need from their trade association,” said Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC.  “ASC’s vision is to be the essential center of knowledge and catalyst for growth, and having growth data, trends information and market opportunity input via focused research is an important part of the Council’s efforts to support this vision.” 


The ASC Central and South America Market Report will share market size, production volume, key trends and market drivers, as well as customer insight on needs, issues and opportunities.  The report will include forecasts for the market on a 3-year time horizon. 


The report will cover the primary market segments including paperboard and related products, transportation, footwear and leather, consumer/DIY, building construction, woodworking, assembly operations, and total market size.  The report will also explore major sub-segments of the primary market segments to highlight growth opportunities across the market.  The report will follow the ASC-CATIA-FEICA Classification Manual for market definitions, and cover both adhesives and sealants.


Full details on the RFP can be found here.
