Pressure Sensitive Tapes Market: Increasing Demand for Lighter Automotive Vehicles and Demand for Packaging Tapes from End-user Industries at Global Level

  • A pressure sensitive tape is a strip of paper or plastic with adhesive applied either on one side or both in order to temporarily or permanently join two overlapping materials. These tapes can have several kinds of pressure-sensitive adhesives applied on them, and they can be easily put on any surface by applying pressure either manually or mechanically
  • A pressure sensitive tape comprises a backing material or carrier often coated with adhesive or a release liner. These are manufactured by coating technologies such as solvents, hot melt, and dispersion-based. Adhesive tapes are widely used for labelling, packaging, sealing, stationery, electric insulation, and general-purpose applications. In the automotive industry, adhesive tapes are used for joining interior parts, roof and glass bonding. The product is extensively used in the construction industry for ceramic tiles, concrete, floorings, panels, and roofing
  • Pressure sensitive tapes are extensively used in numerous automotive applications such as wire harnessing, electric insulation, automotive body repairs, masking, and surface protection
  • Increasing use of pressure sensitive tapes in automotive interior parts to provide better resistance and excellent adhesion ability is likely to propel the pressure sensitive tapes market during the forecast period
  • Furthermore, increase in global trade relation followed by rise in adoption of online retailing has fuelled the demand for packaging segment, which in turn expected to propel the demand for pressure sensitive tapes during the forecast period
