Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Adhesive Tapes Market size is projected to cross USD 187 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 8.80% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of adhesive tapes was over USD 68 Billion. The growth of the adhesive tapes market can be attributed to the increasing demand of adhesive tapes from various industries. Adhesive tapes are used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, healthcare, packaging, construction, and others. Additionally, the packaging industry is expanding rapidly. For instance, amidst the e-commerce boom, the Indian packaging industry is experiencing rapid growth and is one of the fastest growing sectors. According to the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP), packaging consumption in India has increased by 200% over the last decade, from 4.3 kg per person per year (pppa) to 8.6 kg pppa.

In addition to this, the growth of the e-commerce industry has led to an increase in the demand for adhesive tapes for packaging and shipping purposes. Global e-commerce sales are projected to reach USD 6 trillion by the year 2024, up from USD 3.53 trillion in the year 2019. Mobile e-commerce sales are growing at a faster rate than desktop sales. In the year 2020, mobile e-commerce sales accounted for nearly 45% of total e-commerce sales worldwide, up from 40% in the year 2018. First coined by Kevin Duffey at the inception of the Global Mobile Commerce Forum in 1997, the term mobile commerce means "bringing electronic commerce capabilities directly into the hands of consumers, wherever they are, via wireless technology." These are the factors that are predicted to present the potential for adhesive tapes market expansion over the projected period.

Adhesive Tapes Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Revenues of the Automotive Industry – The expansion of the adhesive tapes market can be attributed to the increasing revenues of the automotive industry worldwide. This is the result of increased vehicle production worldwide. The global automotive industry is expected to reach approximately USD 9 trillion by 2030. Additionally, increasing demand for premium vehicles with premium materials, safety and technical features, and aesthetically enhanced environments is expected to drive the adhesive tapes market growth. Adhesive tapes for the automotive industry are a combination of materials with an adhesive-coated backing and optionally a release liner.
  • Increasing Incorporation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Technology – Adhesive tapes are used as bonding solutions and connecting solutions in the ADAS systems. ADAS is the latest safety technology to help drivers navigate and park by coordinating the actions of cameras, sensors and radar to scan an area and relay this information to the driver. With the increase in road accidents and fatalities, road safety has become very important. About 1.3 million people die each year in road accidents. This can be mitigated with safety technology such as its ADAS, which has hitherto been limited to luxury vehicles.
  • Rise in Research Spending – Growth in the global market during the forecast period can be further attributed to increased investment in research and development activities to continuously find more viable solutions for adhesive tapes. Research reports show that global R&D spending on adhesive tapes has more than tripled in real terms since 2000, rising from about USD 680 billion to more than USD 2.5 trillion in the year 2019.
  • Growing Demand for Environmentally Friendly Products: The increasing awareness about the environmental impact of products is driving the demand for eco-friendly adhesive tapes market that are made from renewable and biodegradable materials. In a survey conducted in the year 2020, nearly 68% of US consumers stated that they had switched to a more environmentally friendly product in the past year.
  • Increase in Construction Activities: With the increase in construction activities worldwide, the demand for adhesive tapes for bonding, sealing, and masking applications is increasing. In the United States, construction spending in the residential sector reached nearly USD 614 billion in 2020, up 14% from the previous year.

Challenges

  • Price volatility of raw materials: The prices of raw materials used in adhesive tapes, such as petroleum-based adhesives, can be volatile, making it challenging for manufacturers to maintain stable prices for their products.
  • Increasing competition in the global adhesive tapes market.
  • Supply chain disruptions: Disruptions in the global supply chain, such as those caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, can impact the availability of raw materials and finished products, leading to challenges for manufacturers in meeting customer demand.

Adhesive Tapes Segmentation

Application (Automotive, Healthcare, Packaging, Electronics)

The global adhesive tapes market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into automotive, healthcare, packaging, electronics, and others. Out of the five types of end users, the automotive segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~35% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be accredited to the increasing production rate of electric vehicles worldwide and the growing awareness of the global population about the negative impact of traffic emissions on human health and the environment. This is backed by the expected high demand. The International Energy Agency reported that in 2021, electric vehicle sales surpassed its 2020 sales, nearly doubling to 6.6 million. Tapes designed for vehicles are primarily used for specific purposes and therefore require a different type of adhesive. Masking tape, for instance, is used as an adhesive tapes market for painting automobiles. It protects vehicle's windows, exterior and interior when painting.

Material {Polypropylene (PP), Paper, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)}

The global adhesive tapes market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by material into polypropylene (PP), paper, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Amongst these three segments, the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~30% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be accredited to the growing demand of PVC in the construction industry. PVC is widely used in the construction industry for applications such as pipes, window profiles, and roofing membranes. As the construction industry continues to grow, particularly in emerging economies, the demand for PVC is expected to increase. PVC is used in various automotive applications, such as seat covers, dashboard skins, and insulation. As the automotive industry continues to grow, particularly in Asia Pacific, the demand for PVC is expected to increase. PVC is used in various packaging applications, such as blister packaging, shrink wrapping, and food packaging. As the packaging industry continues to expand, particularly in e-commerce and food and beverage sectors, the demand for PVC is expected to increase. PVC can be made with eco-friendly additives that reduce its environmental impact, such as phthalate-free plasticizers and bio-based additives. The demand for eco-friendly PVC is expected to increase as consumers become more environmentally conscious. As urbanization continues to increase globally, the demand for PVC products in construction and infrastructure applications is expected to rise, leading to growth in the PVC segment over the forecast period.
