Seam Sealing Tapes Market size is valued at USD 215.5 million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period 2022 to 2028. Seam sealing tapes are multilayered adhesive tapes located to sewed seams to remove water and air. Seam sealing tapes are tapes that are enclosed with adhesive and finished out of paper, fabric, plastic film, foil, and foam. They are used with a hot air taping machine and are thermally activated. Outwear, tents, industrial workwear, footwear, military clothes, and waders are among the uses for the tapes. The global market provides a detailed overview of the Seam Sealing Tapes market, and that can be segmented by type and by backing material. By type, the Seam Sealing Tapes market has been segmented into Single layered and Multi-Layered. The Multi-Layered segment is likely to be the largest and fastest-growing segment in terms of type. The abundant benefits of multi-layered seam sealing tapes-in terms of excellent adhesion, superior waterproofing chemicals, and an extensive variety of applications—have subsidized the high development of the multi-layered segment in the seam sealing tapes market growth. Its several applications comprise apparel, backpacks, tents, footwear, and tarpaulins, among others. The single-layered segment is predicted to list a lesser increase during the forecast period due to the restricted applications of single-layered seam sealing tapes. Based on Backing material, the Seam Sealing Tapes market is segmented into Polyvinyl Chloride, Polyurethane, and Others. Among these, the Polyurethane segment is expected to have the fastest-growing market during the forecast period 2022-2028. The major factor for the rise of this segment is the properties offered by polyurethane. Properties such as impact resistance, high abrasion, high flexibility, and water resistance. These properties of polyurethane have caused a growing preference for polyurethane in membranes of two- and the three-layered seam sealing tapes and adhesives. Polyvinyl chloride is likely the second-largest segment due to its numerous properties, such as transparency, flexibility, light, and oxygen & water barrier properties.
