Gummed Tapes Market by Application – Box & Carton Sealing, Splicing, and Others for 2019 – 2029

Cartons sealed with gummed tape degrade at a much slower rate on variation in temperature, and perform better in humid environments and under very low temperature in comparison with regular pressure-sensitive tapes. Besides, the prolonged use of tape guns for sealing cartons has an adverse effect on the wrists of workers, reducing overall productivity. In contrast, gummed tape can be cut easily to obtain the desired length with the use of tape dispensers.

On the back of these factors, the global gummed tapes market is expected to exhibit a steady CAGR of 6.2% over 2019-2029, and is estimated to reach US$ 1.9 Bn by 2029.

What is the current and future market status of gummed tapes?

The global gummed tapes market is projected to witness significant growth in the foreseeable future, owing to their numerous applications in key end-use industries, and is expected to expand 1.8X its current market value by the end of 2029.

Why are gummed tapes gaining traction?

Gummed tapes are manufactured from natural adhesives such as paper and potato starch, which increases adhesive bonding when activated by water. The backing material used for making gummed tapes – reinforced fiber – offers tear-resistance, which makes them tamper-proof. Additionally, gummed tapes are sustainable for cold and hot environmental conditions.

Which end-use industries hold potential growth opportunities for manufacturers?

The demand for gummed tapes is consistently increasing from shipping and logistics industries, as these tapes offer high adhesive strength for corrugated box packaging and damage-free transportation of products. As per FMI analysis, shipping and logistics industries account for a majority of the market share in 2019, and are expected to maintain their dominance by the end of 2029. Building & construction, electrical & electronics, and automotive industries are also expected to offer substantial prospects for players in the gummed tapes market.
