Global Adhesive Tapes Market: Highlights
- The global adhesive tapes market is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6.5% between 2019 and 2027. The market’s growth is also the result of growing use of these tapes in industries like automobiles and manufacturing. These industries implement adhesive tapes in various applications like fixing a leak, placing dashboards and various others.
- Shift towards miniaturization of electronic devices is likely to drive global adhesive tapes market. Rising disposable income and changing lifestyles of people coupled with increased dependence on the use of electronic devices is the reason for high increase in sales of electronic devices across the world. Adhesive tapes acts as a substitute for screws and fasteners.
- Increasing use of adhesive tapes in automotive interior parts to provide better resistance and excellent adhesion ability is likely to propel the adhesive tapes market during the forecast period
- Environmental regulations affect the pressure-sensitive tape technology in two areas: manufacturing process and product design. While forming an adhesive layer on the backing material, adhesives such as low-viscosity natural rubber and resins are coated by solvents such as xylene and toluene. Without proper containment devices, these solvents are simply released into the atmosphere. Moreover, energy required to evaporate these solvents emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Global Adhesive Tapes Market: Segmental Trends
- In terms of volume, automotive segment accounted for major share in global adhesive tapes market in 2018. This is because, it uses these tapes in various applications such as placement of dashboards, insulating electric wires, and holding slots for connectors in the vehicles. These applications in the automotive industry are expected to make it the fastest growing segment in the global adhesive tapes market from 2019 to 2027.
- Electronic industry is also a major contributor to the growth of global adhesive tapes market. The industry uses these tapes in forms of insulators and collectors for the electronic components to be used in a device.
