Global De-seamable Adhesives Market: An Overview
Removal of shrink labels during the recycling process of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles has been a challenge for recyclers. A typical batch of PET bottles contain about 5% shrink labeled PET bottles; these labels are difficult to remove. Due to these labels the recycling equipment misidentifies the PET bottles and removes them from the recycling line, this results in a reduced yield of the recycler. Application of de-seamable adhesives on shrink labeled PET containers helps in enhancing the recyclability of PET containers without changing the process. By the application of de-seamable adhesives, shrink labels de-seam and get released from the substrate during the wash step, without compromising the performance of the label used. The shrink label gets removed before sorting, thus preventing the shrink labeled PET bottles being removed from recycling stream due to misidentification. This helps in reducing the use of adhesive remover machines during the recycling process of containers.
Global De-seamable Adhesives Market: Dynamics
PET bottles are widely used in packaging of food and beverages as they help in enhancing the shelf life of packaged content. However, they end up in landfills as their recyclability poses a challenge to brand owners and recyclers. Usage of de-seamable adhesives can solve this problem to a great extent, which is expected to drive the global de-seamable adhesives market. Also, stringent regulations imposed by regulatory bodies have compelled the brand owners to recycle the plastic containers they use. This is expected to further fuel the demand for de-seamable adhesives during the forecast period.
Manufacturers are teaming up to provide innovative solutions to improve their yield of recycling.
Such initiative by ‘Sun Chemical Corporation’ is expected to inspire other market players operating in the adhesive industry to expand their adhesive solution portfolio to address environmental issues and help in reducing the plastic materials ending up in landfills. These factors are anticipated to propel the demand for de-seamable adhesives in the de-seamable adhesives market during the forecast period.
