Reflective Sheeting Market: Overview
During the beginning of 1960’s, the usage of reflective materials came into existence. Reflective materials are principally used to increase nighttime visibility of traffic signs, clothing, and other products that are visible in the light of an approaching vehicle’s headlamps. Reflective sheeting is a flexible reflecting sheet, which is made from retro reflective material, and is majorly used in road signs to enhance visibility in the night. Reflective sheets are majorly used as a safety feature in vehicles and in road signs indicators, as these reflect the light and prevent mishaps. Additionally, these sheets are used to increase the scanning range of barcodes in factories. Reflective sheets contain micro glass beads and micro prismatic, which are sealed onto a fabric or plastic substrate.
Reflective Sheeting Market: Key Segments
The global reflective sheeting market can be segmented based on type, application, and region. In terms of type, the reflective sheeting market can be segmented into micro glass beads, micro prismatic materials, and others. The micro glass beads embedded in the marking material reflect the light emitted by the headlights of vehicles, illuminating the markings at night. This helps increasing road safety. Based on application, the reflective sheeting market can be segmented into road signs, transportation, communications, and others.
