Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a mixed impact on the structural adhesive tapes market across the globe. Various industries such as automotive, building & construction, electronics & electricals have witnessed significant slump. In contrast, the healthcare industry has witnessed growth since the outbreak owing to excessive demand for PPE kits and medical devices. Various companies such as 3M Company, Tesa SE, and Nitto Denko Corporation have started aggressive marketing of the product to expand the client base and mitigate the impact on business.

Most European and North American countries, especially Italy, Spain, the UK, France, the US, and Germany, are severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The suspension of manufacturing operations in several industrial sectors has resulted in a slump in overall structural adhesive tapes. Moreover, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand from the manufacturing sector had slumped sharply in the H-1 2020. This impact was further intensified by increasing the supply-demand gap in the supply chain and led to a sharp spike in raw material prices. However, during the pandemic period, the growing demand from the healthcare industry supports to offset the marginal decline in demand caused due to the slowdown in the manufacturing sector across the globe.

Lintec Corporation is focusing on R&D and manufacturing a variety of associated equipment, such as barcode printers, labeling machines, and semiconductor-related equipment, to maximize the qualities of tapes and label materials. In addition to adhesive-related items, the firm is focussing to develop and manufacture structural papers, such as color papers for envelopes and function papers, release papers and films, and casting papers. While offering base papers for release papers utilized for its adhesive materials. The company is in the process of combining four core technologies, such as adhesive applications, surface improvement, system development, and specialty papers and release materials production at a high level of competence to develop innovative, market-leading products. In addition to this, the company promotes a market-dialog style of R&D, in which its researchers visit the customers with sales representatives for direct communication. This enables the R&D, sales, and production sites to work in collaboration throughout the process of development and commercialization of the product.

Nitto Denko intends to concentrate on three areas: "third-generation connectivity," "life science," and "information interface." The firm is now developing a 5G cellular network. It is expanding its presence in North America and Europe with an intention to strengthen its hold on the market. Simultaneously, the company is working to develop medical adhesive tapes for the wearable device market. These products are focused to solve day-to-day problems, including heat, sound vibrations, and electromagnetic waves. For instance, the advent of fifth-generation mobile communications system has provided the ability to gather & analyze data and create new values in each industrial sector. The company is engaged in the construction of devices that deal with problems in the field of mobility, such as heat, vibration, and electron magnetic waves.
