Seam tapes are adhesive films that are used to sew seams to keep the garment watertight. These tapes can hold weight of thicker fabrics, and provide a reliable, durable, and flexible seal. They are further used as waterproof materials in automotive parts, apparel, sporting goods, and footwear. Thus, owing to their wide applicability, they are used in garments, tents, industrial work wear, waders, footwear, and military.

The global seam tapes industry is witnessing significant growth, and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in demand for sports apparel, development of the sports industry, and increase in health awareness. Furthermore, benefits offered by seam tapes such as smooth finish, superior washability, and enhanced bonding strength are expected to fuel their demand to manufacture sportswear, industrial work wear, and military garments. However, volatility in raw material prices, increase in consumer preference for branded apparels, and surge in demand from developing economies are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the global seam tapes market.

The global seam tapes market is segmented into type, backing material, application, end-use industry, and region. Based on type, the market is classified into single-layered and multi-layered. The single-layered segment is the major shareholder in the seam tapes market, owing to increase in use of single-layered seam tapes to manufacture bags, footwear, and apparels.

Deepening on backing material, the market is categorized into polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride, thermoplastic polyurethane, polyamide, nylon, and other. The polyurethane segment is expected to dominate the market, due its properties such as high flexibility, water resistance, superior abrasion, and strong impact resistance. By application, the market is segregated into waterproof protection, sports innerwear, sportswear, casual apparel, shoes, tarpaulins, backpacks, and others. On the basis of end-use industry, it is fragmented into apparel, footwear, automotive, and others.

Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. South America is anticipated to grow at a considerable rate, owing to rapid change in living standards and well-developed sporting culture.
The key players operating in the global seam tapes include Toray Industries Inc., Bemis Associates Inc., Himel Corp., Essentra PLC, Geo-Synthetics, Sealon Co. Ltd., Loxy As., Gerlinger Industries, Traxx Corp., and GCP Applied Technologies.
