Demand for Duct Tape to Increase 3.6% Annually Through 2022


June 13, 2018 ( Newswire) Demand for duct tape is projected to increase 3.6% per year to $403 million in 2022, above the average of PSA tape overall. Rising spending on building and construction will boost demand for HVAC systems, which will support sales of higher-value professional grade duct tape, driving dollar gains. Broader distribution beyond hardware and home goods stores has also contributed to rising sales, with duct tape often found in crafts stores, drug stores, and mass retail stores. Going forward, advances will be aided by ongoing interest in creative and decorative options for duct tape, as well as demand for higher-performing grades in maintenance applications. These and other trends are presented in Pressure Sensitive Tapes in the US, 12th Edition, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

Pressure sensitive tape demand overall is relatively acyclical, due to its use in multiple applications. Prices will increase, reflecting the higher value of specialty tapes and rising prices for oil, a key raw material in the manufacture of PSA tapes. The US remains a net exporter of PSA tapes, owing to its technological expertise and specialty offerings. PSA tapes exhibit performance advantages over competitive joining and sealing methods, such as welding and mechanical fasteners.

Consumer electronic devices - including thermostats and appliances - are increasingly interconnected via internet to enhance efficiencies. Known as the Internet of Things (IoT), this network enables users to remotely monitor and control devices in their homes. As the number of electronic devices per house increases, PSA tapes will see increased use, both in the manufacture of these products and among end users who opt to mount their devices or bundle and support wires and cables.
