Seam Tapes Market Size, Share & Trends (2022 - 2027)

The size and share of the Seam Tapes Market noticed around USD 255 Million in 2021 and It is expected to be around USD 305 Million in 2026 at a current CAGR of 8.76%.

The Global Seam Tape market is expected to a witness moderate CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2024). The market is expected to grow majorly in the Asia Pacific region because of the rising textile industry in this region. Seam Sealing Tapes are multi-layered adhesive tapes that are put into the seam seams to stop water or air leakage from the seams. Seam sealing tapes are multi-layered tapes composed of adhesive-coated paper, plastic film, fabric, foam, and aluminum foil. They are thermally activated and applied by hot air packaging machine. The bands are used in various applications such as outerwear, industrial workwear, tents, boots, footwear, and military clothing. Different types of tapes are used for various applications, such as ultra-sewing tape used for delicate fabrics and lightweight waterproof blankets, light sewing tape used for shoes and clothing, and activity sewing tape used by heavy users on thicker fabrics.

Seam Tapes Market Drivers and Restraints:

Growing trends in the fashion and textile industry, and increasing demand for protective clothing and accessories for military, medical, surgical, and chemical protection are expected to drive the market growth. The advantages of using sealing tapes in terms of excellent quality testing and a wide range of applications have supported the growth of the market. The demand for gasket sealing tapes in emerging markets is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. The growing sports industry in developing countries like China and India is driving the growth of the common bands market. Growing demand for sewing ribbons from the garment industry is helping in the growth of the sewing tapes market.

Rising demand for protective clothing and accessories is driving the growth of the Sewing Tapes market. The change in lifestyle, increased health awareness, increased physical activities, and the trend to replace sewing with adhesive film are driving the growth of the Sewing Tapes market. On the other hand, the volatility of the prices of raw materials slows down the growth of the market. In addition, rising living standards in emerging economies are driving the demand for branded clothing, creating new opportunities for the growth of the Sewing Tapes market. However, fluctuations in commodity prices may affect the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Seam Tapes Market

Seam Tapes Market Segmentation Analysis as per the research report until 2027.

Seam Tapes Market - By Type

  • Single layered

  • Multi-layered

The various points of interest of single-layered seam tapes as far as superior adaptability, waterproofing, superb grip, and a wide scope of utilizations have added to the high development of the single-layered section in the worldwide seam tapes market. Its various applications incorporate clothes, footwear, and sacks. The multi-layered fragment is extended to enlist moderate development during the estimated time frame, because of the restricted utilization of multi-layered seam tapes.

Casual apparel is extended to develop at the most noteworthy rate during the conjecture time frame because of the properties of seam tapes. Seam tapes offer extraordinary elastic performance to make sure maximum freedom of movement. Single-layered, just as multi-layered kinds of seam tapes are utilized in casual apparel to make the article of clothing lightweight, waterproof, adaptable, and dampness safe, in this way driving the interest of seam tapes in the market.

Seam Tapes Market - By Backing Material

  • Polyurethane

  • Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)

  • Polyamide (PA)

  • Polypropylene

  • Polyester

The polyurethane segment is expected to represent the majority of the global seam tapes market, in terms of value and volume, from 2020 to 2025. This domain is expanding due to its features like high abrasion, impact and water resistance and high flexibility, resulting in an increasing preference for polyurethane in various adhesives and single-layer seam tapes. The thermoplastic polyurethane segment is supposed to be the second-largest segment from 2020 to 2025, owing to its various properties, such as flexibility, transparency, light characteristics, and moisture barrier.

Seam Tapes Market - By Application

  • Intimate apparel

  • Sports innerwear

  • Sportswear

  • Casual Apparel

  • Shoes

  • Outwear

  • Bags

The monolayer and multilayer seam tapes types are used in casual wear to make the garment light, waterproof, flexible, and moisture resistant, driving the market demand for seam tapes.

Seam Tapes Market - By Region

The Seam Tapes Report includes the segmentation of Regions with their respective Countries.

  • North America 

  • Europe 

  • Latin America

  • Middle East & Africa 

  • Asia Pacific

The Asia Pacific seam tapes market is foreseen to record the most significant CAGR during the estimated time frame.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Seam Tapes Market

To stop the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic, countries and the world capital have been put under strict lockdown, completely crippling major industrial production chains. It has affected supply chain disturbance for nearly three-quarters of U.S. businesses, and in the second quarter domestic consumption is expected to be further affected. The same situation has also arisen in Europe, as the epidemic required large-scale restrictions on the movement of people, investment, consumption, and exports will be strongly affected by the epidemic, and national production and consumption will fall first half of 2020. We expected a U-shaped recovery in the second half of the year in the US and European markets. Due to delays in the transportation of components and raw materials, coupled with quarantine restrictions, the transportation of raw materials is affected, which will lead to a shortage of supply and then an increase in the price of raw materials. Meanwhile, as end-user demand weakens, many players also face the risk of increased inventory build-up, which can lead to passive reduction in production, some traditional retailers have started to expand the online activity.

Recent Developments

  1. Recently research is being carried out by the mechanical department of IIT, Varanasi on systematic 3-D printing. Rapid Prototyping technology is being developed for the fabrication of complex geometries directly from their CAD model.

  2. National Museum of the American Indian - Smithsonian Institution’s, Washington DC carried an initiative for the preservation of human remains in Ethnographic collection.

  3. In a recent study carried out by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, it has been found that Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) a 3-D printing technology to directly fabricate boat hull mold.

  4. Qingdao Key Laboratory for Advanced Tire Materials, Qingdao, P.R. China developed a new processing technology for the production of cross-linked cables & wires know as Radiation cross-linking.

The multi-layered Seam Tape industry is expected to grow in the forecast period due to a rise in demand for protective equipment & clothing apparel such as chemical resistance clothes, sports equipment & clothing, military jacket & bulletproof vests, & in Astronomical suits.

Stringent Environmental policies, lack of awareness about the market in many regions such as in some countries of Latin America & the Middle East & Africa, & fluctuations in the prices of raw materials are some of the restraining factors for the market’s growth.

The Asia Pacific is supposed to be the quickest developing continent in the global seam tapes market, regarding value. This is the result of the presence of an expanding number of garment manufacturing units in nations, for example, China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Bangladesh in the Asia Pacific area. Likewise, these nations are the biggest exporters of materials and clothes internationally. Because of cheap labor expenses and accessibility of locally manufactured crude materials, producers lean toward setting up manufacturing units for the creation of textile and apparel in the Asia Pacific nations.
