Pressure Sensitive Tapes: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (Vocus) October 12, 2010
Demand for pressure sensitive tapes is soft due to the overall weakness in world economic condition and the resulting lack of consumer demand. However, radical cost-cutting measures, and relatively strong demand from emerging nations, especially in Asia-Pacific, have improved market performance in the beginning of 2010. Cautious optimism prevails among market players as the frozen economy begins to thaw. In the post recession period, growth fundamentals such as, rising population, greater demand in food packaging, growing base of aging population, among others, will all trigger demand for products that utilize pressure sensitive labels. Government regulations such as statutory requirements on ingredients/contents and health warnings will also warrant greater use of pressure sensitive labels.
Although the growth for pressure sensitive labels in North America has slowed down significantly from the previous levels, market demand will continue to remain modest. As stated by the new market research report, developed markets such as Europe, Japan, and United States collectively account for more than half of the global pressure sensitive tapes market. Besides challenging economic environment, escalating raw material prices, maturity of pressure sensitive labeling and already high penetration levels in key end-use sectors such as construction and food and beverage will keep market demand subdued in developed nations for the foreseeable future.
Future growth opportunities in this market will stem from Asia-Pacific, with the region flaunting a CAGR of more than 5.0% over the analysis period. The march is being led by China, which is witnessing substantial growth, spurred by rising investment in infrastructure development and construction projects in the country. Market for Medical tapes in Asia-Pacific is expected to surge at a CAGR of more than 7.0% during the analysis period.
From the segmental perspective, the weak demand for masking tapes was due to lower levels of activity in the automotive and construction sector since late 2008, as an aftermath to the global economic crisis. Packaging tapes market is expected to continue its dominance. Packaging tapes (including corrugated carton sealing tapes) experienced demand deceleration compared to the performance during the 2000-2007 period, due to constrained spending on food and beverage products worldwide.
