These tapes are utilized in assembly and industrial sealing applications that witness ultraviolet light, extreme temperature and chemical exposure. Moreover, silicone-based adhesives are used in the production of tapes and labels and offer adhesion to various surfaces exposed to harsh chemical and thermal conditions. Thus, the exhibited characteristics of silicone adhesives make it a preferred choice over the other adhesive types, which is driving its segmental growth.
Non-woven Tape Market Segment Analysis – By End-use Industry
The medical and healthcare industry held the largest Non-woven Tape Market share in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The rise in the aging population and advancements in medical devices would increase the usage of non-woven tape, made up of adhesives such as acrylic and silicone, in medical device attachment, surgical gowns, masks and other applications. According to International Trade Administration, in Mexico, the total local production of medical devices and equipment increased from US$16.80 billion in 2020 to US$15.12 billion in 2021. Additionally, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, in 2022, the government announced a US$5 million increase towards the improvement in the safety and security of medical devices. Moreover, the increase in surgeries is driving the demand for these tapes as wound care dressing material. According to the National Organ Transplant Program, in India, around 6000 renal transplant surgeries are done annually. Thus, with the growing demand for medical applications such as device attachments, gowns, wound dressing and others in the medical and healthcare industry, the Non-woven Tape market would further rise over the forecast period.
Non-woven Tape Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
The Asia-Pacific region dominated the Non-woven Tape Market share by 42% in 2021, due to the increasing requirement for non-woven tapes in developing countries such as China, Japan, India and South Korea. China, India and Taiwan are expected to continue their dominance in the non-woven tape market during the forecast period. This is due to the growth of the medical & healthcare industries in the countries. For instance, according to International Trade Administration, in China, the medical device market is expected to expand with a 2020-2025 CAGR of 6.2%, which should see it rise to US$38.4 billion by 2025. Also, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka collectively perform around 38000 cardiac surgeries a year. Moreover, according to Invest India, the medical device sector is growing steadily at a CAGR of 15% over the last 3 years and the medical devices industry in India is poised for significant growth with the market size expected to reach US$50 billion by 2025. Thus, the rising growth in the demand for medical applications such as surgical gowns, tapes, masks and others in the medical & healthcare sector is proving to be a market booster for the Non-woven Tape market size in this region.
Non-woven Tape Market Drivers
Growing Electrical & Electronics Industry:
Non-woven Tapes are made up of adhesives such as acrylic and silicone, with backing materials such as polyester, paper and others. They are used in the electrical and electronics industry to provide insulation, strength and elasticity to the cables. These tapes can withstand the stress applied during the wrapping process and comprises flexibility. The advantages of non-woven tapes in the electrical and electronics industry include high porosity, tensile strength, compressibility, electrical resistance and resistance to aging and variations in temperature. The electrical and electronics industry continues to grow. According to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian electronics manufacturing industry is projected to reach US$520 billion by 2025. Moreover, according to the Government of Canada, in 2022, the government announced the Semiconductor Challenge Callout. The purpose of this challenge was to build on Canada’s domestic strengths associated with the development and supply of semiconductors with several funding options. There was the funding of US$150 million through the Strategic Innovation Fund to make targeted investments and US$90 million in funding for the National Research Council of Canada's Canadian Photonics Fabrication Centre (CPFC). Thus, the growing electrical and electronics industry would require more non-woven tapes for providing insulation, strength and elasticity to the electrical cables, which would drive the growth of the Non-woven Tape industry during the forecast period.
Increasing Transportation Industry:
Non-woven Tape with backing materials such as polyester, paper and others, in the transportation industry, is utilized for car roof linings, leather and textile supporters and headliners in automobiles. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA), in 2021, 79.1 million motor vehicles were produced around the world, which was an increase of 1.3% compared to 2020. Moreover, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTD), China had 4,504 merchant ships in 2019, which reached about 4,603 merchant ships in 2020 with a growth rate of about 2.2%. With the increasing production of automobiles and the growing marine sector, it is estimated that in the upcoming years the requirement for non-woven tape in the transportation industry would rise. This would enhance the growth of the Non-woven Tape market.
Non-woven Tape Market Challenge
Rising Health Issues:
There are various applications and advantages of non-woven tapes. However, in the medical and healthcare industry, these tapes can cause skin injuries such as skin-stripping. Also, the occurrence of sepsis and other infections during the multiple uses of tapes can hamper the market growth. The negligence in handling non-woven tapes hygienically can produce pathogens.
