Key Factors Influencing Smart Labels Market Growth
Smart Labels in Perishable Food Products to Enhance Product Quality
There has been a considerable rise in demand for packaged and perishable food products in developed as well as developing countries. Leading food processing and manufacturing companies are focusing on enhancing their supply chain efficiency and providing high quality food products to consumers. Smart labels used in perishable food product packaging provide relevant information such as expiry date, ingredient information, and quality of the food. Growing use of smart labels in beverages industry to enhance the disposition of bottles is expected to significantly drive the market growth in near future.
According to the U.S. Grocery Manufacturing Association (GMA), around 80% of products related to food & beverages and personal care will feature smart labels or tags within the next five years. Additionally, leading food distributors are now partnering with packaging professionals to produce specific smart label solutions for food products.
- For instance, PakSense, a U.S.-based food logistics company joined forces with Thin Film Electronics ASA to offer smart labels to food companies for temperature monitoring.
Growing Focus on Smart Packaging of Pharmaceutical Products
In the past few years, demand for smart packaging has been increasing in the pharmaceutical industry, where smart labelling plays a pivotal role. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are adopting various smart labels such as near field communication (NFC) tags and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to track medicines and improve patient experience. In addition, these smart labels can identify pallets of drugs and medicines simultaneously. Smart labels eliminate line of sight identification, facilitating the process of identification which sets them above barcodes. Further, factors such as product integrity assurance, hospital inventory management, and channel traceability are expected to remain instrumental to the growth of smart labels market.
Application Restricted to Premium Products
Smart labels are mainly used in high-value products due to their relatively high cost as compared to standard barcode labels. Smart labels are gaining popularity for products that fall in the premium category, either in price or quality. These factors have further restricted the application of smart labels in various small- and medium-sized industries, which pose as a potential challenge for manufacturers.
