Analysts’ Viewpoint

Investments in R&D and operational excellence are the key to tide over uncertainties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Manufacturers in the construction tape market are tapping incremental opportunities in the automotive and aluminum production sectors. However, conventional bonding technologies in duct and masking tapes are prone to peeling of the paint when removed from surfaces and limitations in high temperature applications. Hence, manufacturers should increase their R&D in advanced bonding and material technologies to meet the demanding applications of end users. Companies should establish steady supply chain routes with end users in the technical textiles, medical, and consumer goods industries to expand their revenue streams.
