Specialty Tapes

This study analyzes the global double-sided tape market.

Double-sided tapes typically include three components – backing, pressure sensitive adhesive, and one or more release coatings. Among backing materials used are:

  • polypropylene
  • polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
  • other plastic (e.g., cellulose acetate, fluoropolymer, nylon, polyester, polyethylene, polyimide)
  • paper
  • other materials such as cloth, rubber, glass fabric, foam, foil, and nonwovens

Markets evaluated in the study include:

  • manufacturing, such as:
    • appliance production
    • electronics and electrical equipment manufacturing
    • medical device assembly
    • motor vehicles and other transportation equipment
    • packaging and printing production
    • personal care product manufacturing
  • building and construction
  • healthcare and medical
  • other markets (e.g., automotive aftermarket, consumer and office, event setup, law enforcement, libraries, museums, packaging and shipping, picture framing, schools, signs and graphics, warehouses, movie sets and theater/concert venues)

For markets, a given tape is included in the application in which it is used. For example, manufacturing tapes include double-sided tapes that are used in joining, sealing, protecting, and mounting various components. When this product is packaged for sale (such as an appliance being placed in a box), this is considered to be the packaging and shipping market.

Historical data are provided for 2010, 2015, and 2020, with forecasts for 2025 and 2030.

Data are presented in metric tons and US dollars.
