A majority of the industries, across nations, are facing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturers in the duct tapes industry are gradually restarting their production. However, they need to go above and beyond the existing manufacturing practices to promote safety and hygiene among the employees in order to avoid further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

According to global COVID-19 public health directives, coated cloth duct tapes, at present, are widely utilized for creating social distancing markers, lane marking, and containment barrier markers. Duct tape manufacturers are accordingly working towards ascertaining the safety of front line health workers.

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, manufacturers are collaborating with other companies to facilitate the front-line workers with the healthcare supplies to battle against the virus spread. For instance,

3M has partnered with Dow to manufacture sturdy medical gowns with the assistance of multi-use white duct tapes, which provide a tough seal over the seams.

Professional Grade Duct Tapes Hold Half of Total Revenues

Carrying the benefits of better durability, holding power, and removal properties, professional grade and specialized high strength duct tapes continue to define stakeholders’ bottom lines. Particularly in Japan, adoption of the former is on the rise owing to high export of electronic goods in the country. However, professional grade duct tapes are likely to lose some of their share to their counterparts - utility duct tapes and removable duct tapes - as these packaging tapes are relatively expensive.

South Asia is also echoing these growth prospects, attributing to the swelling infrastructure investments, particularly in fast developing countries such as India, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Unleashing Potential Application Opportunities in Non-traditional Areas

Influenced by their economical nature and excellent tacking property, duct tapes are making forays in various indoor applications such as sealing ductwork, and dustproofing filter banks. In addition to this, consumers are increasingly banking on duct tapes for different small-scale Do-it-Yourself (DIY) projects.

Apart from these household applications, duct tapes are widely used in the manufacturing industry for waterproofing, reinforcing and color-coding of packaging, owing to their excellent resistance properties. Such potential application areas for duct tapes are reflecting white spaces to market players.

How Growth will Unfold

Adoption of duct tapes will remain prominent in sealing of HVAC insulation systems throughout the forecast period. Accounting for over a third of total market revenues, manufacturers are eyeing this end-use category for higher profits. By 2025, duct tape consumption by the HVAC industry will account for revenues of over US$ 2 Bn. Meanwhile, the building & construction industry is also reflecting an opportunistic potential for market growth, where adoption of duct tapes would most likely join the billion-dollar club in 2021.
