Future Market Insights (FMI), in its recent report titled, “UV Tapes Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015 -2020”, projects that the global UV Tapes market will be worth US$ 437.9 million by 2020. FMI’s analysis found that the global UV tapes market will expand at a CAGR of over 9% through 2020.

Robust Demand from Semiconductor Industry will boost the UV Tapes Market

UV tapes are being increasingly used in the semiconductor industry for back-grinding and wafer-dicing processes. The surge in consumer electronics market is expected to increase the demand for semiconductors. According to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics, the global chip market will grow by 3% through 2016 to reach a valuation of US$ 355 billion. Growing demand for semiconductors is anticipated to push the demand for UV tapes market globally.

Inefficiency of PSA tapes in high-temperature applications and concerns about their impact on the environment are other factors that are anticipated to provide a boost to the UV tapes market.

PO-based UV Tapes Have the Highest Demand

Among the various types of raw materials used for the manufacture of UV tapes, such as PO, PVC, PET, and acrylic adhesives, the demand for PO is anticipated to remain dominant through 2020. The market value of PO segment was worth US$ 166 million in 2015, and it is anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 269 million by 2020.
