COVID-19 Impact:

The adhesive tapes market landscape largely depends on the retail, packaging, and automotive industry. Covid-19 significantly disrupted most of the industries, causing huge revenue losses. The pandemic changed consumer buying patterns shifting them from in-store to online/virtual purchases. Manufacturers did suffer issues related to disrupted supply chains and shortages of key raw materials required. Also, getting the workers during the lockdown was a big issue that industry leaders did face. 

Moreover, the spread of the virus restricted cross-border trade between countries, determining the market demand. However, the pandemic boosted the healthcare industry and investments in medical devices and personal care packaging. The demand for personal hygiene supplies and healthcare products to address SARS-CoV-2 would keep rising steadily beyond 2021. Also, it is expected that the adhesive tapes demand could pick up following the uplift of the lockdown in many countries.
