Convenience and ease of use of gummed tape is expected to favour white and brown gummed tape segmental growth over the forecast period

Brown and white gummed tapes are more efficient regarding improving and maintaining the aesthetic value of the packaging. Gummed tapes are widely used in printing applications for providing company and product information as these can be customised with various prints as per specific customer requirements. The packaging of cartons sealed with gummed tapes degrades at a much slower rate on variation in temperatures and performs better in a humid and deep freeze environment in comparison with regular pressure sensitive tapes. Prolonged use of tape guns for sealing cartons has an adverse effect on the wrist of workers, making the workers inefficient and reducing productivity. In contrast, use of gummed tapes does not have any such adverse effect. This is boosting the growth of brown and white gummed tapes in the global market.

Use of gummed tapes provides better protection for the goods in transit, which limits the loss of goods and improves the fill rate while helping achieve customer satisfaction and also benefitting each node in the supply chain. Gummed tapes cannot be removed without leaving a mark and any attempt of removing the sealing tape will damage the carton itself. Soaring sales value in the online retail format has increased the need for protecting the goods from theft during transit. Use of gummed tape has depleted the cases of theft to almost null while reducing the insurance claims on the loss of property during transit.

Rising concern of regulatory authorities on the increasing plastic waste is driving the brown and white gummed tape segment. The adhesives used in gummed tapes have very low toxicity levels and any small spilling of adhesives during the manufacturing process can be easily contained in soil or other inert material. The adhesives used in gummed tapes do not cause any harmful effects on human beings in case there is any skin contact. The chemicals used in the manufacturing of adhesives for gummed tapes are stable in nature and do not undergo any hazardous reactions. Sealing of cartons with self-adhesive tapes can be harmful for the environment as their bonding strength is weak, which leads to excessive use of the tape for securing the packaging thereby leading to an increase in plastic waste. Use of gummed tape requires only one strip of tape for sealing the cartons, which makes it a more resource efficient option. All these factors are fuelling the growth of brown and white gummed tapes in the global gummed tapes market. 

The global gummed tapes market has been witnessing high growth of fibre reinforced tape due to its heavy duty container sealing capacity. It is likely to be a lucrative backing material type during the forecast period. We have recently published a new report on the global gummed tapes market titled “Gummed Tapes Market: Global Industry Analysis & Opportunity Assessment, 2017-2027,” which takes a 360o view of the overall market. Our analysts have observed that APEJ and North America are the top two regions to focus on in terms of growth of the global gummed tapes market. The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand significantly, led by rapid industrialisation and increase in global trade. Among the various market segments, we have observed that the brown gummed tape segment is anticipated to witness significant growth, while factors such as cheap raw material prices and availability, along with high quality bond to containers to secure the seal between oily or dirty surfaces is projected to fuel the demand for starch based adhesives over the assessed period.
