Specialty Tapes Market 2
Specialty Tapes Market 2

The global specialty tapes market is likely to showcase a growth of around 6% during the forecast period. The performance of the global specialty tapes market depends on the performance of several industries such as chemicals, packaging, healthcare, electronics, and construction. Specialty tapes are utilized in construction and industrial applications owing to their high-tensile strength. These tapes are also used in the automotive and healthcare industries owing to their bonding and fastening properties. Further, these tapes are resistant to various factors such as water, fire, and dust, among others, and are much stronger to hold heavy-weight objects and protect them from any type of damage. Various types of adhesives are used in the manufacturing of specialty tapes to offer additional characteristics. For instance, acrylic and rubber-based adhesives are utilized to produce the soundproof tape. Moreover, the growing healthcare industry coupled with the increasing use of specialty tapes due to its wide utilization in surgical containers, monitoring electrodes and other medical devices, covering wounds, fixing cover shields while surgeries are performed, cleaning in antiseptic rooms as well as for manufacturing of disposable infant and adult diapers is maintaining its strong demand. Additionally, the robust growth of the food & beverages sector due to fast urbanization, adoption of modern lifestyles, and growing need for hygienic & packed food would drive the specialty tapes market.
