“Global adhesive tapes market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.50%”

The global adhesive tapes market size is estimated to reach USD 61.86 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.50% between 2016 and 2021. Their ability of sticking with application pressure, with or without the need for a solvent (such as water) or heat for activation performance properties are replacing the need for mechanical fasteners in many industries. The increasing demand for adhesive tapes in healthcare, automotive, building & construction, electrical & electronic industries is fueling the overall demand for adhesive tapes, globally.

The high price of tape backing materials, fluctuations in the cost of raw materials that are derived from crude oil, and recessionary effect on end-use industries are factors that restrain the growth of the market.

“Healthcare is the largest application of adhesive tapes”

Adhesive tapes are used in the healthcare sector for surgical containers, monitoring electrodes, and other medical devices. Healthcare adhesive tapes and adhesive plasters are a few of the pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes used in the medical industry. Currently, medical tapes are used in hospitals to cover wounds, for fixing cover shields during surgeries, and for cleaning purposes in antiseptic room entrances. In 2015, the healthcare application accounted for the largest market share, in terms of both value and volume. The adhesive tapes market in the healthcare segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021, in terms of both volume and value.

“Rising demand in Asia-Pacific is the major driver of the adhesive tapes market“

The high demand in Asia-Pacific is expected to be the major driver of the global adhesive tapes market. China is expected to lead the Asia-Pacific market, in terms of demand for adhesive tapes, due to increase in the capacity expansion of adhesive tapes by key players in the country since the last 3–4 years. It is also among the leading emerging markets of adhesive tapes, globally. The markets in other emerging economies such as Brazil, India, and Mexico are also expected to witness rapid growth.
