According to a new Fact.MR study, the market is expected to record volume sales of 11.6 billion sq. m by 2028-end. The report opines that the tamper evident labels market will remain consolidated among Tier Three players, who collectively account for almost half of the market share.

Highlighting the key demand drivers of the tamper evident labels market, the study suggests that increasing emphasis on preventing pilferage and product labeling policies in the pharmaceutical industry will remain crucial to the prospects of tamper evident label manufacturers. According to the study, demand from the pharmaceutical industry is expected to surpass U.S. $7 billion by 2028.

The study envisages plastic to be most preferred material for tamper evident labels manufacturing, projected to account for bulk share of the market share over the period of forecast. Vinyl continues to capture higher demand among plastic variants, accounting for approximately half volume sales. Demand for vinyl is majorly concentrated in the pharmaceutical and electronics industry, to meet performance requirements in altering temperature and moisture conditions.

The report estimates barcode technology to remain sought-after among end-use industries, recording volume sales in excess of 5 billion sq. m. In a bid to optimize the production cost, manufacturers persistently seek barcode technology which provides cost-effective and reliable methods of labeling. The study estimates that the RFID and NFC tagged tamper evident labels will witness the most attractive growth both in terms of value and volume against the backdrop of growing digitalization.

Brand protection remains the prime concern of all industries dealing with packaging, constantly creating demand for VOID tamper evident labels. The Fact.MR study indicates that VOID tamper evident labels will hold over half market value share. However, the destructible tamper evident labels are estimated to expand at a rate twice that of VOID pattern labels through 2028.

APEJ (Asia Pacific Excluding Japan) continues to spearhead the tamper evident labels market, with volume sales pegged to exceed 4.1 billion sq. meter by 2028-end. Considerable growth of the end-user industries—particularly pharmaceutical, consumer durables, and electronic goods (CDEG), coupled with rapidly transforming retail landscape, and shifting focus of manufacturers towards strengthening brand identity, will continue to underpin growth of the market in APEJ.
