Adhesive Tapes Market Trends




  • The increasing use of adhesive tapes in diverse end-use industries to boost the market growth




Adhesive tapes are used in end-use industries such as packaging, masking, consumer & office, electrical & electronics, healthcare, automotive, white goods, paper & printing, building & construction, retail, and others. The market is expected to be driven by the increasing applications of adhesive tapes. The packaging industry is dominating the market growth. Packaging tapes, also known as adhesive tapes, are used for sealing, enclosing, wrapping, and bundling. These packaging tapes are commonly applied to the seams and joints of various storage receptacles in order to maintain a tolerance that keeps cargo within the receptacle's restraint. Furthermore, they are used for parcel delivery box seams, bottle caps, tamper-proofing pills, and food containers, bundling similarly shaped items into one larger, and enclosing items in a protective film or liner. Adhesive tapes play an important role in packaging perishables. Overall, the growing packaging industry is expected to drive the demand for adhesive tapes through the forecast period. Similarly, the packaging industry in India is expanding rapidly. It is India's fifth-largest economic sector and one of the country's fastest and fastest-growing sectors. In the midst of the e-commerce boom, the Indian packaging industry is experiencing rapid growth and is one of the fastest-growing segments. According to the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP), packaging consumption in India has increased 200% in the last decade, rising from 4.3 kg per person per year (pppa) to 8.6 kg pppa. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the economy contracted by 4% by 2020, the largest drop since the 1930s Great Depression. This has had a negative impact on the adhesive tapes market. The increased e-commerce purchases during COVID-19, on the other hand, have accelerated market growth in 2021. The carry handle tape market offers innovative solutions for convenient and secure packaging, enhancing both transportability and consumer experience.


The trend toward flatter and micro-electronic devices continues, which increases the use of adhesive tapes in the electrical and electronics industries. During the forecast period, the adhesive tapes market in the healthcare & hygiene end-use industry is expected to grow at the fastest rate. This increase is attributed to an aging population and an increase in the number of chronic diseases. Furthermore, the demand for vitro diagnostics, hydrophilic films, transdermal drug delivery patches, and oral dissolves films is propelling the healthcare industry. The market is being driven by the use of these tapes in the building and construction industries for HVAC, glazing, abatement, and insulation.


However, to cater to the demand there have been significant advances in the packaging industry. For instance, the demand for adhesive tapes in the packaging end-user industry is likely to boost the growth of the market and drive the growth of the Adhesive Tapes market revenue.
