One reason I would use adhesive anchors instead of mechanical anchors is for the type of load it is resisting. Mechanical wedge anchors are not designed to resist cyclic or seismic loads since the wedge works in only one direction. These applications require adhesive (IE epoxy, esters) anchors. So from retrofit wall anchors to missed wood panel hold down bolts, adhesive anchors are commonly the only solution. One exception is the bearing undercut anchor but it requires large edge distances which cannot always be provided in the base material.
