Adhesive Tapes Market, by Resin Types (Acrylic, Rubber, Silicone); by Technology (Solvent, Hot-melt, Water-based); by Backing Material (Polypropylene, Paper, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), others); by End Use Industry (Packaging, Healthcare, Electrical and Electronics, Automotive, Others); by Type (Single-Sided, Double-Sided); by Application (Specialized Tapes, Packaging Tapes, Masking Tapes); by Category (Commodity Adhesive Tapes, Specialty Adhesive Tapes), By Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America) – Market Size & Forecast 2021-2030

The Global Adhesive Tapes Market size was valued at USD 65912.65 million, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.34 % over the forecast period.

Adhesive tapes are used in a variety of industries, including medical, automotive, consumer electronics, and food and beverage. In the automotive sector, adhesive tapes are used to attach car components instead of screws, bolts, or the welding process. The food and beverage industry, which is a large industry with a steady demand for adhesive tapes, uses adhesive tapes for packing and sealing food containers.

The growing demand for sustainable food packaging solutions that keep food at room temperature while preventing contamination from the environment has created demand for sophisticated adhesive tapes with increased durability.

These tapes are commonly used in the medical industry since they are exceptionally durable and anti-infectious. The increased need for small, lightweight, and fashionable personal devices is also driving the market for sticky tapes. These tapes are used for sealing, joining, insulating, EMI shielding, and heat dissipation of various sections and components of electronic products.

Rising energy costs have had an impact on the adhesives industry, resulting in higher manufacturing costs. Rising global demand for chemicals and capacity constraints in the supply of these critical chemicals and resin feedstock have caused raw material prices to rise. Monomers essential to make adhesive raw materials, such as Piperylene and C9 monomers, are in short supply, resulting in higher raw material costs. All of these issues are restricting the market's growth.



Covid-19 Impact

In 2020, COVID 19 wreaked havoc on the global economy. The COVID 19 pandemic has impacted every industry. The COVID 19 pandemic has impacted every business. COVID-19 has had a global impact on customer behavior. The pandemic also had a negative impact on the adhesive tapes business, which was plagued by a lack of resources and trade restrictions. COVID-19 has impacted a wide range of financial and industrial sectors, including travel and tourism, manufacturing, and aviation, to name a few.

The worst economic collapse occurred between 2020 and 2021. Economic activity is declining as a result of an increasing number of countries initiating and prolonging lockdowns, which has an influence on the global economy.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by Type    

Based on type, the market is divided into single-sided, and double-sided. The global adhesive tapes market was dominated by single-sided adhesive tapes. Single-sided tapes have adhesive on one side of the backing. Polymeric film, paper, foil, nonwoven, or high thread count woven cloth might be used as the backing material, and the adhesive could be natural rubber, silicone, or acrylic.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by Application    

Based on applications, the market is divided into specialized tapes, packaging tapes, masking tapes, others. Adhesive tapes are commonly used in the automobile sector for specialised tapes, electric insulation, car body repairs, masking, and surface protection. During the forecast period, masking tapes are likely to grow due to an increase in the use of adhesive tapes in car interior parts to improve resistance and adhesion capabilities.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by Category         

Based on category, the market is divided into commodity adhesive tapes, and specialty adhesive tapes. As disposable money rises, people's lives change, and their reliance on electronic devices develops, commodity sticky tapes are becoming more popular in Asian countries. In the market industry, the commodity section is the fastest expanding and most widely used segment.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by End-Use

Based on end-use, the market is divided into packaging, healthcare, electrical and electronics, automotive, others. The fastest-growing market for speciality adhesive tapes is healthcare. An ageing population, rising chronic illness incidence, and high demand for in vitro diagnostics, hydrophilic films, transdermal patches, and oral dissolvable films are expected to boost the global speciality adhesive tapes market.

The healthcare industry is undergoing substantial changes as a result of the introduction of new and advanced technology, as well as rising digitalization in both the paper and provider segments. Adhesive tapes are used in disposable infant diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products. The release liners used in these items offer excellent tear and tensile strength because to their ideal fibre composition and good shaping.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by Resin Types    

Based on Resin type, the market is divided into Acrylic, Rubber, and Silicone. Acrylic resin is in high demand due to its superior physical and chemical properties, low cost, and applicability in a variety of end-use industries such as packaging, transportation, and healthcare. Acrylic resin is the fastest-growing market sector. Acrylic-based adhesive tapes are suitable for both solvent and water-based technologies because they are more resistant to other solvents, chemicals, and water. Water-based acrylic adhesives are the least expensive of all the resins used in the adhesive tapes industry.

Global Adhesive Tapes Market, by Region

Based on the region, the global adhesive tapes market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa and South America. 

The Asia Pacific adhesive tapes market in the healthcare industry is predicted to grow at the quickest rate during the forecast period. Traditional wound care items including dry dressings, first-aid kits, and adhesive bandages are in high demand in the region, which is fuelling this growth. As people become more aware of sophisticated wound care, demand for new goods is expected to rise in this region. Huge investments in a variety of industries, including automotive, healthcare, electrical and electronics, and building and construction, are largely responsible for the region's high economic growth rate. Several firms in the region, notably Nitto Denko of Japan and Ajit Industries of India, are building new plants or expanding their existing adhesive tape manufacturing operations. Relocating production to Asia Pacific has two advantages: lower production costs and the opportunity to better serve local emerging markets.
