Adhesive films have a widespread application range in various end-use industries such as electronics, aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and others. These are solid sheets of thermoplastic that can be cut to different sizes and used to attach large-area substrates, components, and lids. Applying this type of adhesion on substrates offer a clean and hazard-free operation with minimum waste produced.

There are mainly three types of film adhesives such as, pressure sensitive (PS) films which may be coated on both sides of a foam tape to provide better adhesion to bond metal identification plates on vehicles or other machines. Heat sealing films are often used in textile and clothes industries, and thermosetting structural adhesives are utilized for bonding honeycomb panels in aircraft manufacturing.
According to estimations, global adhesive films market size will expand at a robust pace through 2027.
Growing utilization of the material in the textile industry is likely to bring lucrative growth opportunities for the market. Its applications in textiles allow designers to replace sewing with welding, sealing, bonding, and laminating processes that provide unique design features to the garment. Some of the other applications of adhesive films include bonding of composites, metals, phenolic resin based, and bonding of water-resistant wood panels used in electronic and household appliances.
Surgical tape is a type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape that is highly applicable in the medical sector for various purposes such as in first aid to hold the dressing onto a wound. The hypoallergenic adhesive on these medical tapes allows to hold firmly onto skin, underlying layers of tape, and dressing material and to easily remove the bandage without damaging the skin. The adhesive film industry size from the adhesive tape applications in the medical sector is poised to grow substantially in the forthcoming years.
The acrylic film is broadly used for heat lamination of films and plastic sheets which are primarily made of polycarbonates, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resins, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The excellent heat moldability of acrylic film makes it perfect for both films insert molding and in-mold lamination.
These materials are applicable as paint alternatives, retro-reflective material, construction material, and bond textiles, and PVC on automotive headliners or doors. Consistent growth in the manufacturing of vehicles is likely to increase demand for the product. OICA reported that companies around the world produced nearly 92 million vehicles, including 25 million commercial vehicles and 67 million cars in 2019.
Adhesive films have a wide range of applications in the electronics industry. The material which is used in the adhesive application in electronics is mostly thermoplastic and partially cured. In the paste adhesives application, the film adhesives should be electrically insulative or electrically conductive.

Asia Pacific adhesive films market is projected to flourish owing to the massive demand for electronic products in the region. Government support in this region to boost digitalization and industrialization are creating exponential demand for any material required in the manufacturing of goods, invariably bolstering adhesive films consumption.
The adhesive films industry is undoubtedly witnessing considerable expansion owing to its demand across numerous industrial verticals. On the other hand, reduced industrial goods production across the major chunk of industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic has restricted the industry landscape to some extent. However, the rapid economic revival after the lockdown is expected to boost adhesive films market expansion in the coming years.
