Filament tapes are primarily used as a packaging adhesive for sealing heavy weight boxes or materials. The filament tapes are waterproof and chemicals resistant which makes it ideal for transporting heavy objects, strengthening plastic materials, packaging bulky cardboard boxes, sealing hazardous materials, and wrapping pipeline and cable. It is classified into low, medium, and high-grade products. It find application across automotive, food and beverage, furniture, consumer goods, specialty vehicle, general industrial, metalworking, military and government, and transportation. The global filament tapes market is estimated to surpass US$ 6,985.6 million by the end of 2027 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period (2020 to 2027).
Rising demand for corrugated box packaging as it gives lightweight packaging solutions for various end-user industries such as automobile, electronics, and food and beverage is projected to foster the market growth of filament tapes. Increasing introduction of advanced filament tapes is also projected to boost market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2018, Tesa SE launched a new range of premium filament tapes with fiberglass reinforcements. The new filament tapes provide durability in cases where regular strapping tapes are not strong enough to withstand very heavyweight, high abrasion levels, or extreme shear force. It is suited for applications in the metal manufacturing and processing industries.
Growing demand for filament tapes from the automotive industry for interior and exterior applications due to its excellent property of holding adhesives for longer times is further expected to foster the market growth of filament tapes. Rising demand for high-quality sealing and tensile strength packaging during transportation for protecting the product from UV rays and moisture is expected to serve as a driving factor to the market growth of filament tapes.
Among region, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global filament tapes market in 2019, accounting for 35.9% market share in terms of revenue, followed by North America and Europe.
