Market Overview

The global building construction tapes market revenue was valued at USD 3.8 billion in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 5.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period (2023–2031). Increasing demand for pressure-sensitive tapes is projected to drive the utilization of adhesive tapes in the building and construction sector throughout the forecast period.

Building and construction tapes offer extensive adhesion for various applications in an infrastructure. Building and construction tapes are synthetic materials that bond two surfaces to support contraction. Apart from providing aesthetic appearance to internal and external structures, Building and construction tapes have unmatched benefits, including easy and fast application on any surface and protection of walls and windows. Moreover, the building and construction tapes are used to remodel the building structure, insulate the building, paint, and hold or bundle wires.

Building systems and components require proper protection from adverse weather conditions, external forces, pollution, cracks, excess sounds/vibrations, and multiple other factors that harm the well-being of the construction. Building and construction tapes address acoustic, sealing, waterproofing, and fireproofing obstacles/challenges. Moreover, building and construction tapes reduce the overall cost of materials required at the construction site.

Market Dynamics

Global Building Construction Tapes Market Drivers:

Growth of the Building and Construction Industry

The building and construction industry is one of the most booming industries in the world. Australia, India, China, Indonesia, Norway, Sweden, and Canada are among the major countries rampantly boosting their construction and infrastructure development. They are predicted to exhibit steady market growth over the forecast period. Sustained economic growth coupled with low interest rates has increased the approvals for building projects across the globe. Approximately 50% of India's construction activity demand comes from the infrastructure sector.

Similarly, as per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India's real estate market size is expected to reach USD 853 billion by 2028. Moreover, the expanding population, rapid urbanization, and industrialization of emerging economies are expected to prompt governments to increase their construction spending to cater to rising infrastructure needs. This is projected to propel the demand for adhesive tapes in various construction applications over the forecast period.

Rising Demand for Pressure-Sensitive Tapes

Adhesive tapes can mitigate stress concentration caused by rivets, spot welds, screws, bolts, and other mechanical fasteners. These tapes reduce the use of fasteners, thus reducing the component weight. Adhesive tapes produce clean finished products and help reduce finishing costs, including metalworking and sanding. Advantages such as cost-effectiveness, lower manufacturing costs, minimal surface preparation, aesthetic improvement, lower weight, corrosion resistance, rust resistance, and superior strength likely boost demand for adhesive tapes. Moreover, factors such as rising demand for corrugated box packaging in the food and beverage sector, advancements in manufacturing processes, and materials used for pressure-sensitive tapes are expected to drive the market over the next seven years.

Furthermore, the growing use of medical tapes compared to traditional bandages in various medical applications is expected to open new market avenues over the next seven years. The increasing use of biodegradable material for manufacturing these tapes is also expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. Introducing new specialty electrically conductive adhesive tapes for telecommunications equipment will likely create immense market potential over the forecast period. Therefore, the rising demand for pressure-sensitive tapes is expected to promote the use of adhesive tapes in the building and construction market over the forecast period.

Global Building Construction Tapes Market Restraint:

Volatile Prices of Raw Materials

PVC, PP, acrylic, SBR, plastics, and paper are the key raw materials used to manufacture tapes for various applications. Since crude oil is the source of these raw materials, changes in oil prices will probably affect raw material prices, which will then affect the total cost of the tape. Crude oil has witnessed tremendous price fluctuations over the past few years due to the large supply-demand gap. Several countries, including India, South Africa, and China, implemented policies to stock up on crude oil to maintain a constant supply. At the same time, fossil fuel deposits could not yield enough output to satisfy the ever-rising global demand for oil. However, technological advancements in the oil and gas sector have increased crude oil output, reducing the supply-demand gap and lowering its prices.

Synthetic rubber is one of the primary raw materials for manufacturing adhesives. However, the prices of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) fluctuate owing to variations in crude oil prices, which are anticipated to affect the profitability of building and construction tape manufacturers. SBR was first synthesized as a substitute for natural rubber (NR) during the Second World War when Japan had cut supplies of NR to Western countries. Due to technological advancements, SBR has gradually replaced natural rubber in most applications, and this trend is anticipated to continue. SBR is the highest synthetic rubber consumed, accounting for over 45% of consumption. However, frequent fluctuations in its prices, owing to supply-demand imbalances, have led to fluctuations in the profitability of adhesive and sealant manufacturers. Therefore, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials and difficulty in raw material sourcing are expected to be the major challenges for tape manufacturers, thereby restricting market growth over the forecast period.

Global Building Construction Tapes Market Opportunities:

Production of Eco-Friendly Tapes

Building and construction tapes are not capable of undergoing biodegradation. The manufacturing process of these tapes emits volatile organic compounds. Overall, building and construction tapes can be harmful to the environment. The rising environmental concerns have forced market players to develop green or eco-friendly tapes that can combat severe environmental issues; this is also observed to offer lucrative opportunities to manufacturers.

Additionally, multiple global building and construction tape market companies have shifted their focus to producing eco-friendly tapes to contribute to the environment. For instance, in July 2022, a globally leading manufacturer of tapes, Nitto Denko Corporation, announced a new scheme for recognizing environmentally friendly products. Nitto Denko Corporation announced that it is identifying its products by assigning PlanetFlags and HumanFlags. This step by the company highlights its social contribution. Low VOC- double-sided adhesive tape launched by Nitto Denko Corporation in 2021 has been recognized under the PlanetFlags category.
