Splicing Tapes Market Overview
The splicing tapes market size is forecast to reach US$658.3 million by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 2.4% during 2022-2027. Splicing tapes are single coated or double coated tape, used to connect two materials to offer continuity or elongate their length. Materials like film sheets, corrugated containers, and many other materials are joined by these tapes. A wide variety of resins such as acrylic or silicone adhesives are used to prepare these tapes which are later used in several end-use industries. Splicing tapes find their extensive use in the packaging sector where they are used to manufacture corrugated boxes, flexible packaging films, and several other packaging containers. The packaging sector is exhibiting tremendous growth with increasing demand for packaging applications for food items, personal care products, e-commerce, and numerous other packing applications and this is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the splicing tapes market in the forecast period. According to the August 2021 stats by UK packaging manufacturer GWP Group, the packaging sector in the UK remained buoyant due to robust e-commerce growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, splicing tapes are used in the production of paper and paper printing applications. The paper & printing sector is one of the important markets for splicing tapes which is witnessing robust growth and this, in turn, is projected to influence the market’s growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the report by the Indian Paper Manufacturers Association, exports of paper, paperboard, and newsprint in 2020-21 stood at 2191 thousand tonnes compared to 1662 thousand tonnes during 2019-20. The fluctuation in the prices of the backing materials might affect the market’s growth during the forecast period.
The splicing tapes market was positively influenced due to the COVID-19 pandemic as the need for packaging applications surged globally. The demand for packaging grew with increased demand for several necessary products such as food items, hand sanitizers, household cleaning & detergent items, and bottled water increased amid the pandemic. Moreover, the demand for electrical and electronic services increased during the pandemic which further amplified the requirement of splicing tapes for low-voltage insulation and moisture sealing applications. Going forward, the market is projected to witness robust growth due to the expanding end-use industries such as packaging, paper & printing, and electrical & electronics.
