Top US Adhesive Tapes Companies-Part 1

The top retail brands in the US adhesive tapes market are 3M, Bemis Tape, H.B. Fuller, Berry Plastics, DowDuPont, Tesa, Huntsman Group, Avery Dennison, The Reynolds Company, and Mactac. The requested information on these companies has been entered into the attached spreadsheet.

SUMMARY

RESEARCH STRATEGY

In order to identify the top retail brands in the US adhesive tapes market, we first turned to market reports published by companies like Mordor Intelligence. We focused on reports that discussed the US adhesives tapes market. While several reports were found, they were blocked by paywalls. However, we found a summary of their content; this helped us find four US companies leading the adhesives tapes market.

Next, we relied on existing lists of the best-selling adhesive tape brands in the US. This was a successful strategy as well as we were able to gather more companies. However, a few of the companies we found in these lists - such as JDC Adhesive Solutions, Venture Tape, and HALCO- are privately held and do not offer their revenues to the public. As a result, we excluded them.

The lists we found provided the adhesive tape revenues for most of the companies. Still, we verified them by going through their most recent annual reports. A few companies such as Bemis Tape and The Reynolds Company did not offer a breakdown of their revenue by division or for adhesive tape specifically. As a result, their total revenue was provided.
