Industrial Tapes Market By Product Type (Aluminum Tapes, Duct Tapes, Adhesive Transfer Tapes, Filament Tapes), By End Use (Manufacturing, Automotive, Construction, Logistics, Electrical & Electronics), By Backing Materials (Paper, Cloth/Fabric, Polymeric, Metallic) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Industrial tapes are adhesive tapes used for a variety of industrial applications such as bundling, masking, surface protection, etc. The global industrial tapes market is expected to grow rapidly due to the rapid expansion of end-user industries. For instance, the automotive industry is experiencing stringent demand for eco-friendly and high-performance adhesive tapes, which is driving the global industrial tapes market. However, macroeconomic factors and geopolitical risks have an equal impact on the industrial tapes market across regions.

For instance, Europe's industrial tape market is governed by positive macroeconomic factors from countries such as Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. According to the OECD economic outlook, solid economic growth is projected for Germany (2017–2018), attributed to the depreciation of the euro and strong demand from China and the U.S. markets. However, macroeconomic factors such as Brexit, price inflation in the Turkish market against geopolitical tensions, and general elections scheduled for 2019 all have an impact on the growth prospects of industrial tape manufacturers as well as the consistent supply of products to end users.

By product type, the filament tapes segment accounted for a share of X% in 2016 and is projected to grow at a fast pace of X% CAGR by 2025. Increasing demand for applications such as carton sealing and strapping for large-scale packaging requirements is expected to fuel growth for filament tapes, among others.

Among the backing material type segments, polymeric backings achieve the majority of their share owing to their technical advantages, such as excellent mechanical strength. In the paper segment, factors such as the ease with which tapes can be applied under curves and contours with the paper being easily ripped by hand help to drive demand for paper backing material. Other advantages, such as stretching up to 50% and better suppleness, foster growth, especially for masking tapes, which are widely used in the paint industry.

By end-users, the automotive segment is expected to grow at X% CAGR over the forecast period. Advancements in the eco-friendly production of tapes are expected to fuel demand for the automotive industry. The construction and electrical and electronics segments are expected to register steady growth of X% and X%, respectively, by 2025.

Geographically, the Asia Pacific industrial tapes market accounted for X% of the market share in 2016, with the electronics industry catering to the region's increasing growth in the industrial tapes market.

For the purpose of this study, the global industrial tape market by product type is categorized into:

  • Aluminum Tapes
  • Duct Tapes
  • Adhesive Transfer Tapes
  • Filament Tapes
  • Others

Aluminum tapes are designed for application areas where high-temperature resistance and electrical conductivity are prerequisites. Aluminum tapes are widely used in HVAC duct sealing and insulation, as well as electromagnetic protection in the electronic industry. The increasing demand for high-efficiency insulation in various end-use industries is expected to drive the sales revenue of aluminum tapes over the forecast period.

Duct tapes, which are primarily made of pressure-sensitive adhesive, are best suited to irregular surfaces. Applications such as packaging, sealing carpet padding, and other general-purpose works such as mending, repair, patching, etc., are expected to aid in the growth of the duct tape market.

Filament tapes consist of pressure-sensitive adhesives coated onto the backing substrate and are used for various packaging and bundling applications. Carton sealing and strapping are the dominant applications, which are expected to drive the market for filament tapes during the assessment period.

For the purpose of this study, the global industrial tape market by end-use is categorized into:

  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Logistics
  • Electrical and Electronics
  • Others (aerospace, etc.)

The end-users demand advanced, sophisticated adhesive solutions to keep pace with evolving industrial necessities. As a result, innovations in adhesive technologies are prominent in order to provide diverse options to end-users. Automotive end-users are poised for significant growth over the next five years. The macroeconomic forces, the demand for personal transportation, and strict norms and regulations are the key factors driving the automotive industry worldwide, which in turn propels the global industrial tapes market. Specifically, vibration and noise are active areas for O.E.M.s to focus on in order to improve the driver experience.

As a result, elastomers and various composites are used to solve damping problems in brakes, engines, and other systems. The industrial tape helps these composite materials get securely placed and supports them so they can work efficiently. Furthermore, high adhesion properties, strong U.V. stability, and resistance to harsh liquids are some of the key properties of industrial tapes, which mark them as effective high-performance adhesive solutions.

The electrical and electronics segment is expected to register steady growth over the forecast period. The industrial tapes offer the ideal attachment of gaskets to the internal electronic components, thereby protecting them from moisture, dust, and other vibrations. The increasing demand for high-performance adhesives over conventional bonding systems is anticipated to impel the global industrial tapes market during the forecast period.

For the purpose of this study, the global industrial tapes market by backing materials is categorized into:

  • Paper
  • Cloth/Fabric
  • polymeric (P.E., P.P., P.V.C., etc.)
  • Metallic (aluminum, copper, etc.)

The backing material of industrial tapes works to keep the adhesive in place, allowing industrial tapes to function properly. The appropriate interface between backing material and adhesive primarily determines the efficiency of industrial tapes. Factors such as application area, purpose, and time span play a critical role in the selection of a specific backing material among varieties.

For instance, in a temperature- and the weather-resistant environment with a requirement for high bonding strength, viscoelastic backing or polymeric material is best suited. A PVC backing is suited for insulation applications owing to its durability and non-flammable properties. The polymeric segment accounted for a major value share of more than 60.0% in 2016, and dominance is expected to continue over the forecast period.

As a backing material, fabrics such as cotton, viscose, etc., offer the higher mechanical strength required in specific applications of sealing and splicing. In terms of value, the segment is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during 2017–2025. The biodegradability, conformability, and abrasion resistance properties of this type of cloth or fabric backing material are expected to drive sales revenues.
