January 2019 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Pressure Sensitive Tapes Market Growth & Trends

The global pressure sensitive tapes market size is poised to reach USD 75.91 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., progressing at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. Increasing application scope in the medical and automotive industries is projected to augment the market over the forecast period.

The market is driven by the packaging industry on account of their high-volume usage in cardboard and container sealing. In addition, ease of application of packaging tapes as compared to substitute products such as adhesives and sealants is anticipated to further boost the demand in packaging application in end-use industries.

Technological advancements in the industry are focused towards production of premium quality products with superior performance. Development of customized product designed for use in specialized applications along with rise in use of silicone-based adhesives is estimated to emerge as a way forward for tape manufacturers across the globe.

Fluctuations in raw material prices result in a notable changes in procurement cost for manufacturers, thereby negatively influencing the growth of the market. Volatility in prices of raw materials is a result of changes in crude oil prices. Moreover, sanctions imposed on import of crude oil are also expected to limit the market from realizing its utmost potential.
