CLEVELAND, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The $6 billion global market for double-sided tapes is poised for strong expansion through 2025, according to the Freedonia Group. Boosting growth prospects, double-sided tapes continue to gain popularity over other fastening systems due to their greater strength and ability to:

  • reduce potential mess caused by adhesives
  • seal along the entire length of a seam, preventing leakage
  • reduce stress points by evenly distributing the seal

These advantages and improvements in double-sided tape strength and performance allow them to replace adhesives and fasteners in some structural bonding applications, including in automotive and aerospace assembly and telecommunications. In particular, double-sided tape competes against:

  • adhesives, mechanical fasteners, and welding in automotive and appliance assembly and industrial assembly applications
  • water-activated (gummed) tapes in packaging and shipping applications

Global Double-Sided Tape Demand to Rise 5.0% Annually Through 2025

A new Freedonia Group analysis forecasts global double-sided tape demand will grow 5.0% per year to 2.6 billion square meters in 2025, with advances driven by:

  • continuing switches to tapes at the expense of other bonding technologies such as mechanical fasteners or liquid adhesives in both manufacturing and construction industries, especially in developing areas
  • a rebound in manufacturing activity and an acceleration in building construction in higher-income regions such as North America and Western Europe, where tapes are already used in a wide variety of applications
  • increases in healthcare spending worldwide, as double-sided tape is used for the attachment of devices and sensors to patients as well as for wound care
