Brown and white gummed tapes are more efficient regarding improving and maintaining the aesthetic value of the packaging. Gummed tapes are widely used in printing applications for providing company and product information as these can be customised with various prints as per specific customer requirements. The packaging of cartons sealed with gummed tapes degrades at a much slower rate on variation in temperatures and performs better in a humid and deep freeze environment in comparison with regular pressure sensitive tapes. Prolonged use of tape guns for sealing cartons has an adverse effect on the wrist of workers, making the workers inefficient and reducing productivity. In contrast, use of gummed tapes does not have any such adverse effect. This is boosting the growth of brown and white gummed tapes in the global market.
Use of gummed tapes provides better protection for the goods in transit, which limits the loss of goods and improves the fill rate while helping achieve customer satisfaction and also benefitting each node in the supply chain. Gummed tapes cannot be removed without leaving a mark and any attempt of removing the sealing tape will damage the carton itself. Soaring sales value in the online retail format has increased the need for protecting the goods from theft during transit. Use of gummed tape has depleted the cases of theft to almost null while reducing the insurance claims on the loss of property during transit.
Rising concern of regulatory authorities on the increasing plastic waste is driving the brown and white gummed tape segment. The adhesives used in gummed tapes have very low toxicity levels and any small spilling of adhesives during the manufacturing process can be easily contained in soil or other inert material. The adhesives used in gummed tapes do not cause any harmful effects on human beings in case there is any skin contact. The chemicals used in the manufacturing of adhesives for gummed tapes are stable in nature and do not undergo any hazardous reactions. Sealing of cartons with self-adhesive tapes can be harmful for the environment as their bonding strength is weak, which leads to excessive use of the tape for securing the packaging thereby leading to an increase in plastic waste. Use of gummed tape requires only one strip of tape for sealing the cartons, which makes it a more resource efficient option. All these factors are fuelling the growth of brown and white gummed tapes in the global gummed tapes market.
