Global Adhesive Tapes Market – Overview

Adhesive tape defines as a continuous flexible strip made of paper, metal foil, cloth, or plastic film layered with a thin coat of enduring glutinous adhesive on one or both sides. These tapes are available in the form of rolls or sheets of varied sizes in the market and are commonly known as self-sticking tapes, pressure-sensitive tapes, and sticky tapes. These tapes are increasingly being used for essential packing required for the products related to food and beverage, healthcare, and e-commerce industry. The backing material is usually made of cloth, paper, plastic, foam, and foil with a release liner on one lateral/side. The adhesive on the tape is an elastic constituent that sticks when compression is functional to it and is usually moisture sensitive. These tapes are non-messy, timesaving, and are more suitable as compared to their other alternatives.

Growth Drivers

Rising usage of adhesive tapes in diverse applications

The widespread practice of adhesive tapes usage in various industries such as automotive and food & beverage is an essential factor driving the market. Automotive manufacturers are progressively accepting adhesive tapes in place of mechanical fasteners such as bolts and screws to decrease the vehicles' weight and provide better fuel efficiency. The growth of the healthcare sector is another factor backing market growth.

Adhesive tapes are majorly used for wound care, assembly of medical devices, attributing electrodes on the skin, and fixing cover shields during surgeries. Besides, skin-friendly adhesive tapes are extensively utilized for the manufacturing of infant and adult diapers.
