Sales of Linerless Labels Noteworthy in Retail; Digital and Flexo Printing Collectively Account for 50% Share in Global Market

Jan 15,2020 | Packaging

Linerless labels are designed without a release liner, which reduces the amount of raw material required to manufacture labels, and makes these labels an eco-friendly alternative. Absence of a liner layer saves on extra labor, storage, and transportation costs for end users, and reduces industrial waste and carbon emission. These factors are expected to boost the demand for linerless labels substantially during the forecast period (2019-2029). Removable linerless labels are estimated to hold a leading position in the global linerless labels market, and generate an incremental opportunity of US$ 240 Mn from 2019-2024. Prominent packaging manufacturers are continuously striving to offer sustainable and environment-friendly packaging solutions to various end-use industries.
