Corrosion protection tapes are surface protection tapes infused with anti-corrosive materials which are covered around metal components suitable for wide-ranging usage in various industries. According to a new Future Market Insights (FMI) report, the corrosion protection tapes market is set to grow at a 4.5% CAGR.
Corrosion protection tapes protect metal surfaces against corrosion and UV rays. These products offer various features including water resistance, easily applicability, and high shear resistance on welded joints and bends.
Also, corrosion protection tapes are cost-effective as compared to other adhesive alternatives which led to higher user adoption in the industrial sector. In recent years, corrosion protection tapes are gaining popularity due to high adhesive strength and excellent resistance to rust.
The sales and consumption of corrosion protection tapes is estimated to increase owing to the expansion of industries such as chemicals, automobiles, and building & construction in next decade.
Benefits offered by corrosion protection tapes include excellent electro insulation, flame retardant properties, and temperature resistance, which is projected to experience significant demand in the global market.
