Freedonia Study: World Pressure Sensitive Tapes (2451)
Quote from article
World demand for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA, self-adhesive) tapes is forecast to expand 5.0 percent per year through 2012, reaching 36 billion square meters.
In value terms, tape sales will rise a slower 3.3 percent annually to $30 billion,
as raw material costs stabilize or decline following the 2004-2007 run-up. Projected
growth in tape production will generate demand for around 3.2 million metric tons of raw
materials in 2012, including adhesives and various backing substrates. These and other
trends are presented in World Pressure Sensitive Tapes, a new study from The
Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry research firm.
