VOC Emissions during Manufacturing and Volatility in Raw Material Prices May Hamper Overall Demand

  • There exist major environmental concerns regarding the manufacture of tapes, particularly pressure sensitive tapes.


  • Environmental regulations affect the pressure-sensitive tape technology in two areas: manufacturing process and product design
  • While forming an adhesive layer on the backing material, adhesives such as low-viscosity natural rubber and resins are coated by solvents such as xylene and toluene. Without proper containment devices, these solvents are simply released into the atmosphere. Moreover, energy required to evaporate these solvents emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere
  • Solvent-based adhesives contain a significant level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can lead to smog formation and asthma irritations. It is often a reason for environmental concerns worldwide. Hence, emission of VOCs during production of tapes is likely to act as a restraint for the pressure sensitive tapes market
  • However, the innovation of hot-melt, pressure-sensitive adhesives and water-based acrylate adhesives that require no solvent and consume minimum energy can mitigate the restraint arising out of environmental regulations
  • On the other hand, volatility in the price of raw materials due to changing price of crude is likely to affect the development of the market adversely over the assessment tenure, from 2019 to 2027. In addition, regulations pertaining to the use of backing materials and adhesives for several applications are factors that could add to the complications of the regulatory framework
  • This is also major factor which may hamper the overall demand for Pressure Sensitive Tapes during the forecast period 2019 to 2027
