For instance, according to a report published by WHO in the June 2022, 1.3 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. Reflective tapes are good source of illumination and reflection and moreover, it can visible during night time owing to which it is used as traffic sign material and safety conspicuity. These factors are increasing the overall potential sales of reflective tape in near future. In addition, growing industrial sector such as oil &gas, petroleum plants, chemical plants in both developed and developing economies are escalated the need for reflective tapes.

Reflective Tape Market by Product Type

In 2021, the double-sided reflective tape segment was the largest revenue generator and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Double sided reflective tape is easy peelable, and double coated adhesive tape.   Mainly used in outdoor and indoor applications, as a safety measures, warning signage, and building and construction sectors. There are different types of double sided reflective tapes such as  rubber based double sided reflective tape, double sided butyl tape, double sided box reflective tape,  and among others are widely used in building and construction industry, automotive, and packaging industry. The growing automotive sector projected to increasing purchasing power of customers has surged the popularity of double sided reflective tapes, where butyl rubber based double sided-reflective tapes are extensively used for fixing the number plates. Furthermore, double sided reflective tapes are most widely used as safety measures and also considered as unique safety tapes, sew on stretch fabric, garments, sportswear and others. In addition, it is most ideal tape for pump manufacturers due to its high tensile strength and more coverage area made it most preferred tape on the rubber surfaces.  This is expected to boost the demand for double sided reflective tape during the forecast period.

Reflective Tape Market by End-Use Industry

In 2021, the building and construction end-use industry was the largest revenue generator and accounted for 33% market share in 2021. Reflective tapes are used as safety measures in various residential and commercial, building & construction sites such as hotels, hospitals, homes, flats, warehouses, showrooms, garages, and offices, for protecting pipelines and sealing warehouse floors. In addition to this, it protects concrete surfaces, strengthens materials, and protects metal infrastructures from UV, moisture, air, and decay. Growing population has led the building & construction sector to witness a significant growth where reflective tape are widely used for protective coating and sealing applications. For instance, according to a report published by the International Trade Administration, China’s construction industry is projected to grow at an annual average rate of 8.6% from 2022 to 2030. This may propel the demand for reflective tape in the growing construction sector during the forecast period. Moreover, growing demand for building and construction activity, increase government focus toward adoption of underground parking and subway station has escalated the demand for reflective tape where it is used as effective indicator on ledges, steps, bollards and posts.
