The non woven tape market is estimated at USD 3.17 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.55 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.46% between 2018 and 2023. Non woven tapes have nonwoven fabrics as backing materials such as polyester and paper which are coated, either single-sided or double-sided, with an adhesive. Non woven tapes are the most versatile, easy to process, highly permeable, and highly absorbent. They offer comfort to the skin, and hence are used for several applications in the medical dressing, electrical & electronics, and automotive & transportation industries. The main adhesives used in non woven tapes are acrylic, rubber, and silicone, with acrylic type holding the major market share. The market is witnessing significant growth, with fast-growing demand from the APAC and South American regions, especially from China, India, and Brazil, owing to the rising demand for automobiles, increasing healthcare expenditure, and increasing production of electronic devices.
