Automotive adhesive tapes are pressure-sensitive and flexible strips of fabric that are smeared or applied to join and assemble automobile components. They are manufactured by combining various backing materials, including paper, plastic films, cloth, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and foils. These fabrics are coated with viscoelastic materials that are sensitive to moisture and can adhere to the pressure applied to the product. Unlike liquid adhesives, automotive adhesive tapes can hold longer across curves and sharp angles of vehicles while being neat and less time-consuming. Apart from this, they compensate for irregular or uneven surfaces, lower stress dissipation, absorb shocks, reduce the risk of corrosion, minimize maintenance requirements, and dampen noise. Consequently, automotive adhesive tapes are used to streamline the assembly process of several interiors and exterior elements of automobiles. At present, they are mainly available in double-sided, masking, reinforced, and specialty adhesive tape types.
Automotive Adhesive Tapes Market Trends:
The rapid expansion in the automotive industry and the increasing need for a lightweight sealing solution to manufacture premium electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EVs/HEVs) are primarily driving the market growth. Automakers prefer automotive adhesive tapes over traditional joining methods, such as fasteners, screws, or welding, due to their increased safety, decreased fuel consumption, and reduced vehicle weight. In line with this, the growing environmental concerns, supported by the implementation of numerous green initiatives by governments to attain sustainability, are supplementing the global product demand to mitigate the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions. Additionally, the extensive uptake of automotive adhesive tapes to insulate various electronic equipment, such as air conditioners (AC) systems, exterior lights, music dashboards, and battery connectors, is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the advent of eco-friendly solvent recovery solutions and strategic collaborations amongst key players to launch novel product variants with enhanced properties are positively augmenting the market growth.
