Silicone release paper is the backbone of pressure sensitive labels, tapes and sealant product industries. Sealant label is closely attached with everyone’s daily lives: from bandage paper to postal stamp we use it on frequent basis. Silicone release papers helps in keeping adhesives tacky. Majority of the silicone release papers are single side coated (S1S). Normal paper can’t be used as the release paper because it can’t hold the adhesive properly in right state and can’t peel off easily as compared to silicone release paper. Silicone release paper holds adhesives without fusing. Silicone release papers market has direct correlation with dynamics of pressure sensitive tapes, labels and other sealant products market. Silicone release paper is antimicrobial and water-resistant. Silicone release paper market is highly fragmented by various end use industries. Manufacturers specifically focus on different end use industries. Market is highly dominated by small, medium and unorganized market players. Production base is highly concentrated in Asia Pacific due to easy availability of paper, paperboard and coating raw material products.
Global tapes, labels and sealant product industry is growing at a rapid phase in emerging economies such as India, Brazil, Nigeria, and South Africa. This is due to rising consumption levels of consumers related to automotive, food & beverages, and other consumer goods. The improving lifestyle with better economic prospects of the overall country is pushing consumers spend on discretionatry goods. The overall infrastructure investments are soaring to new hights. These aforementioned factors are driving the global tapes, labels and other sealant products market worldwide. Silicone release paper is highly preferred release liner by the tapes, labels and other sealant product industries.

Growing adoption of silicone release paper in automotive and building & construction industries is anticipated to drive the global silicone release paper market during forecast period. One sided coated silicone release paper dominates the global silicone release paper market. This is due to extensive use of single sided labels, tapes, and other sealant products. Silicone release papers are extensively used in pressure sensitive labels and tapes industry. This is due to easy release of silicone release paper from the label or tape, good tacking capacity and it will not fuse with the adhesives. Silicone release paper can be used with any type of adhesives including acrylic, synthetic rubber, paper liner and solvent based natural rubber. This flexibility is making it as a highly preferred release liner by consumers. Silicone release paper can be used with any packaging formats and substrate material. Use of silicone release liners in application segments: postal stamps and mailing bags is constantly gaining the traction. Postal stamps and mailing bags are expected to gain an attractive market share during forecast period. Major manufacturers of silicone release paper liner are extensively investing in research & development to design & develop products with high reliability and durability.
Asia Pacific Excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to dominate the global silicone release paper market. Developing infrastructure, and industrial related activities and investments in China, India and ASEAN countries are expected to drive the demand for silicone release papers in APEJ. Japan silicone release paper market, despite of its current economic slowdown is anticipated to represent a constant market share in APEJ throughout forecast period. Brazil and Mexico are expected to be the major contributors in Latin America. UAE, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia together outperform the peers in MEA region by construction and infrastructure developments. Overall GCC region is expected to remain a dominant silicone release paper market in MEA. Germany, France and Italy are the major contributors in Europe, due to their dominant position in automotive, electronics and other industrial sectors. U.S. is recovering from its recent economic sluggishness and is expected to grow at a higher annual growth rates compared to last two to three years.
