Magnetic Tape Market – Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts up to 2022
Magnetic tape is a material that is mainly used for storing of data. This technology created a revolution in data storage, broadcasting, and recording markets. The primary and the most common need for this material is data storage along with various other uses such as in packaging solutions and consumer appliances.
Magnetic tape is a medium for magnetic recording, which is made of a thin, magnetizable coating on a long, narrow strip of plastic film, developed in Germany in 1928, based on magnetic wire recording. It was a key technology in early computer development, allowing unparalleled amounts of data to be mechanically created, stored for extended periods, and easily accessible.
The increasing concern toward data theft and loss in the enterprises is a promising growth potential for the magnetic tape market, and it has the maximum demand. The market has an advantage of bigger share coming from the US and European countries for the advanced technology. This gives North America a lead in the global magnetic tape market. Apart from this, European countries are also developing high demand, following North America, owing to the higher consumer acceptance and high demand from the financial and packaging units. The presence of high-end electronics market and high consumer spending in North America and Europe are increasing the market of magnetic tape as well. Asia Pacific followed Europe and accounts for the third largest market for magnetic tape with heavy industrialization and the presence of big Chinese market.
Within various end-user areas, data storage is highly dominating the market in overall magnetic tape across regions owing to the high adoption rate and ease of application. Other than data storage, the packaging & labeling solutions is also increasing its market during the forecast period due to increasing investments and R&D innovations along with government interventions.
