Label market to reach $5.8 billion
U.S. demand for all labels is projected to increase 6.6% annually to reach $5.8 billion in the year 2000, says a recent study by The Freedonia Group (Cleveland, OH).
Of the three primary label markets-product identification information processing and specialty labeling-product identification will continue to dominate through 2000 and packaging applications will make up the majority of demand in this market. Freedonia analyst Luci Young says pressure-sensitive labels generally more expensive than other types yet possessing inherent advantages such as ease of application will capture market share from traditional glue-applied labeling markets. Despite slower growth and competition Young predicts that glue-applied labels will remain dominant in primary packaging applications based on the amount of equipment in place the entrenchment of certain package configurations and adhesive improvements. The complete 161-page study is available for $2.
