Duct Tapes Market - Global Industry Analysis (2012 - 2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017 - 2027)
Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/18/2017 -- Duct tapes are a type of pressure sensitive tapes. Duct tapes have high tacking property and are commonly used for sealing, holding, repairing, waterproofing and colour-coding. On the backdrop of their high tacking capabilities, duct tapes are used for sealing and marking purposes in automotive, building and construction, electrical & electronics and general industrial activities. With the use of duct tapes, manufacturers are able to seal heavy duty box sealing, bundling and wrapping. Apart from specialised and industrial applications, duct tapes are also used in common household DIY activities such as strapping or repairing the broken parts of tools and other items. Some other common uses of duct tapes include securing carpets and padding and protective sheeting for the hotel industry.
The backing material and tack adhesion defines the grade and end use of duct tapes. Metal foil, cloth and plastic are used as duct tape backing material. Polyethylene and vinyl backed duct tapes are famous for light indoor and outdoor DIY applications. However, duct tapes are used as a temporary solution and are inefficient for high temperature applications, and this factor limits the growth in its market. Duct tapes are also efficient for packaging of goods due to their low tack adhesion on cardboard and difficult contours, which further narrows down its area of application. A burgeoning building and construction sector in many parts of the world is expected to escalate the growth in use of duct tapes over the forecast period. Duct tapes have become a preferred option for many household and industrial operations instead of mastic fluids due to the ease in application.
