Specialty Tapes Markets, 2024 - Rising Use of Specialty Tapes in Diverse End-use Industries Spurs Market Growth

DUBLIN, Aug. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Specialty Tapes Market by Resin (Acrylic, Rubber, Silicone), Backing Material (PVC, Paper, Woven/Non-Woven, Pet, Foam, PP), Application (Electronics, Healthcare, Automotive, White Goods, Construction, Printing), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for specialty tapes is witnessing high growth with increased usage in different sectors. The global specialty tapes market size was USD 41.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 59.3 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.1% between 2019 and 2024.

APAC accounted for the major share of the overall market in 2018. This is due to expansion in socio-economic conditions and infrastructure development. On the other hand, stringent policies on VOC emission are projected to obstruct the development of the market in this region.

In addition, Europe and North America are also anticipated to experience expansion in the coming years. Growth in electrical & electronics, automotive, and healthcare & hygiene industries are propelling the development of the global specialty tapes market in Europe and North America.

Growth in demand for specialty tapes in the healthcare & hygiene application is driving the market

The growth of the market is primarily due to the increasing use of specialty tapes in the healthcare & hygiene industry. The specialty tapes market is affected by higher manufacturing costs resulting from increased energy costs. In addition, the consistently increasing global demand for chemicals and the capacity constraints in the supply of these primary chemicals and resin feedstock have fueled the rise in raw material prices.

Growth in the demand for PVC backing material is expected to fuel the demand for specialty tapes

PVC is the most popular backing material used in the manufacturing of specialty tapes. PVC tapes are non-corrosive and resistant to humidity and UV rays. PVC is a thermoplastic polymer that possesses excellent mechanical properties, better insulation ability, and higher resistance to chemicals. These tapes can be used in a variety of applications such as general purpose, lane marking, hazard warning, duct sealing, vapor barrier, protection, construction, automotive, white goods, aircraft, and other industrial applications. In addition, these tapes are ideal for masking during the chemical plating process in the
electrical & electronics industry.

Healthcare & hygiene is expected to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period

The specialty tapes market in the healthcare & hygiene application is growing with the aging population, demand for surgeries, wound dressings, awareness of hygiene products, transdermal drug delivery, and many others, owing to their advantages in various applications. These tapes have wide acceptability due to factors such as low cost and easy availability, as compared to traditional medical procedures. The global hygiene market is expanding with innovative products that are thinner, more breathable, and absorbent. Specialty tapes are used in the manufacturing of disposable infant diapers, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence products. The release liners used in these products have high tear and tensile strength due to optimum fiber content and good formation.
