Key Drivers of Surface Protection Tapes Market:

  • High economic growth, intensive construction activities, and increase in standard of living are the key factors driving the global surface protection tapes market. Rapid urbanization in the globe has led to an increase in infrastructural development, thus driving the demand for surface protection tapes. High growth in the building & construction industry in China, India, and other emerging countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia, coupled with the growth in the transportation and electronics industries in Japan and South Korea are factors driving the demand for surface protection tapes in Asia Pacific.
  • Polished metals surfaces are gently sheen or has a soft glow texture. Metals are offered in different forms such as painted, unpainted, powdered, bright, glossy, or matte. Uncoated metal surfaces or pre-coated varnished surfaces are laminated with surface protection tapes. The polished metal surfaces need to be safeguarded using a surface protection tape during the process of manufacturing, assembling, transportation, and storage. The growth of this segment is ascribed to the rise in demand for these tapes in various end-user industries such as building & construction, namely for curtain walls, building panels, and coil coatings; and automotive for the vehicle parts.
  • Increase in acceptance of surface protection tapes due to their reduced weight, ease applicability, durability, customization, and smooth removal from the surface of substrates has contributed to the increasing demand for surface protection tapes 

Polypropylene Segment to Offer Attractive Opportunities

  • In terms of volume and value, polypropylene is projected to be a rapidly growing segment of the global surface protection tapes market during the forecast period
  • Surface protection tapes are used for applications, where resistance to high temperatures is required. Therefore, these films are majorly employed in industries such as transportation and electronics, where manufacturing operations are carried out at high temperatures. These tapes offer better clarity, higher impact strength, and better barrier properties. They are more expensive than polyethylene surface protection tapes due to their inbuilt elasticity. 

Volatility in Raw Material Prices Likely to Hamper Market:

  • Surface protection tapes are made using many types of materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyvinyl chloride. However, currently, the prices of these materials are varying, due to the global crisis. This is hampering the global surface protection tapes market.
