Global Labels Market by Application Method, Material and Market, 8th Edition
Global demand for labels is expected to approach 59 billion square meters in 2020. While North America and Western Europe will remain large regional markets for labels, the Asia/Pacific region has grown to become much larger. Despite a considerable slowdown in the enormous Chinese market, the Asia/Pacific region will also offer the best growth through the forecast period.
In general, pressure sensitive labels are gaining market share at the expense of glue-applied labels, although glue-applied labels will continue to occupy a significant market position. While plastic film labels will increase their market presence, paper labels will account for the majority of global label demand.
