World Pressure Sensitive Tapes

Gains in PSA tape demand through 2016 will represent an improvement from the 2006-2011 period, with advances driven by an acceleration in manufacturing activity.

World demand to rise 5.6% annually through 2016

Global demand for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes is projected to rise 5.6 percent per year through 2016 to 43.5 billion square meters, valued at $37 billion. This represents an improvement from the 2006-2011 period, which was negatively affected by the recent global economic slowdown. In particular, advances will be driven by an acceleration in manufacturing activity.

Demand in the dominant carton sealing tape segment will be bolstered by an upswing in the processed food and beverage manufacturing sector, which represents the largest single user of corrugated box packaging. Carton sealing tape sales will continue to outpace box demand as tapes capture additional market share from alternative box sealing solutions such as glue. Demand for masking tapes will see a significant acceleration, boosted by strong improvements in building construction expenditures, including architectural paint projects. An acceleration in motor vehicle production, another important masking tape market, will further contribute to demand gains.

Good opportunities will also be found in the electrical and electronic, doublesided, and medical tape segments, though growth in these applications will stem from relatively small bases. Advances, especially for electronic types, will be fueled by fast growing end-use markets. Double-sided bonding tapes will further supplant alternative joining and sealing methods in many industrial applications, while PSA medical and surgical tapes are expected to continue to replace traditional bandages.

Asia/Pacific region to see fastest market gains

The Asia/Pacific region will see the most rapid gains and remain the largest regional market, due to its large manufacturing industries. Central and South America, Eastern Europe, and the Africa/ Mideast region will also experience healthy growth, though advances in these areas will stem from much lower base levels (collectively, these three regions only accounted for 15 percent of global pressure sensitive tape demand in 2011). Overall, the fastest growth will be seen in Asia, specifically in India, China, and Indonesia. In particular, China alone will account for close to half of global pressure sensitive tape market volume gains between 2011 and 2016.

In contrast, advances will be below average in North America and Western Europe, where markets are more established. Nonetheless, good opportunities will still be found in developed countries, especially for technical tapes, due to the development of new specialty applications such as electrically conductive adhesive tapes for telecommunications equipment.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 33.1 billion square meter world PSA tape industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by tape type (e.g., carton sealing, masking, electrical and electronic, double-sided, medical), backing material (e.g., polypropylene, PVC, Paper), world region and for 22 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 industry competitors, including 3M, Beiersdorf and Lintec.
