Global Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tape Market - 2021-2028
The pressure sensitive adhesive tape market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape is a type of adhesive tape and is a thin, flexible material with a single or double-sided coating. PSA can adhere to a variety of substrates when applied to dry surfaces with pressure. The use of pressure sensitive adhesives tapes has been found in different applications, with new uses being discovered. The use of PSA tape is anticipated to grow as a solution due to ease of use and low cost compared to other fastening systems. The tapes are available in various types including single-coated, double-coated, self-wound, reinforced, transfer tape and others.
The global pressure sensitive adhesive tape market growth is driven by the rapidly growing packaging industry and expanding applicability inn various industries due to ease of use.
Rapidly growing packaging industry
The pressure sensitive adhesive tape market is expected to drive with the growing packaging industry globally. The packaging industry has major use of tapes in labeling, case and carton sealing, and working with materials like polypropylene and polyethylene. All of these applications cater to huge requirements for adhesives. Pressure sensitive adhesives tapes are widely used in the packaging industry because of their simplicity, eliminating the requirement of expensive equipment and offering unique advantages over other bonding solutions.
These tapes are offered in a wide range of forms, backings, and adhesive properties based on the packaging applications. Generally, polypropylene or polyester backing has been preferred for packing tapes. Moreover, the requirement for increased strength for packaging can be fulfilled using the fiberglass filaments with the tapes. Therefore, leading companies like Nadco Tapes & Labels, Inc. have been offering a wide range of tapes including masking tapes, carton sealing tapes, reflective tapes, anti-slip tapes, nuclear tapes and autoclave tapes for the growing packaging industry.
Fluctuations in raw material prices
The pressure-sensitive adhesive tape market is impacted by fluctuations in raw material prices. The availability and cost of raw materials are vital factors for the manufacturers to decide on cost structure. Most raw materials such as synthetic rubber, natural rubber, and chemicals used in the manufacturing of tapes are petroleum-based derivatives and are susceptible to fluctuations in prices. There has been high volatility of oil prices in the past with increasing demand across the globe, affecting the cost structure of the PSA tapes industry.
Moreover, the adhesive tape has a thin, flat smooth layer of adhesive that is not suitable for rough and uneven surfaces. Some of the pressure-sensitive tapes have weak resistance to chemicals and high temperatures and have sensitivity to oxidation.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the pressure sensitive adhesive tape industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. The production was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally. After the pandemic, the governments still impose various restrictions, such as working with half the workforce and fewer operating hours hindering the production cycle of the market. The losses are incorporated with less demand from the automotive, construction, electronics, paint & coating and other associated industries. On the contrary, pressure sensitive tapes have noticed a positive demand from the healthcare and food packaging industry. Also, the market is expected to recover after the pandemic, with sectors aiming to complete the existing projects with higher production rates to recover from the incorporated losses.
By adhesive, the pressure sensitive adhesive tape market is broadly classified into acrylic, silicone and rubber.
The acrylic adhesive pressure-sensitive adhesive tape for plasticizers is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)
The acrylic adhesive pressure-sensitive adhesive tape is expected to hold the largest market for pressure sensitive adhesive tape market and is expected to continue its dominance in the forecast period. Acrylic can stick well to substrates such as glass, metals and offering better heat and oxygen resistance than rubber-based adhesives. The acrylic pressure adhesive tapes are majorly used in industries due to their high-energy polymeric surfaces, good resistance to oxidation, good clarity and color stability, lower costs than silicone, resistance to high temperatures and plasticizers and specialized formulations with tailored properties.
Moreover, acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive applications include decorative trim and outdoor signage. Due to the numerous advantages, these tapes have been offered with technological developments in the market. For instance, Ashland has developed Aroset 2100 PSA, a high-performance acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive for demanding tape and label applications.
