Pune, India, Feb. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global self-adhesive labels market size is projected to reach USD 64.9 billion by 2028 from USD 42.9 billion in 2021, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. The rising adoption of labels from the consumer goods sector and increasing awareness of biodegradable products are expected to foster market growth. Fortune Business Insights™ provides this information in its report titled “Self-Adhesive Labels Market, 2021-2028.” The market stood at USD 40.8billion in 2020.

Self-adhesive labels are also called ‘pressure sensitive labels’ as they require pressure to stick to a surface or an object properly. They are used in several applications because of their benefits, such as minimum temperature property, solvent resistance, UV resistance, and strong adhesion. Their adoption enhances a product’s visual appeal and provides excellent adhesion in harsh environments. Adhesive labels’ rising adoption in the consumer goods sector is likely to boost their demand. Furthermore, they are used extensively in the food & beverage industry for packaging food products. Packaging labels save time, provide convenience, and resist unstable environments. In addition, the rising awareness regarding the benefits of biodegradable products is likely to boost their adoption. The labels utilize paper to provide biodegradability and impact the environment positively. These factors are likely to increase market growth during the upcoming years. 

Impact of COVID-19

Robust Demand from the Medical Sector to Bolster Industry Growth

This market is expected to be positively impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the rising adoption of labels in the medical sector. The spike in COVID-19 infections has led to the adoption of medicines and equipment, which, in turn, is expected to boost the product’s adoption. Post lockdown relaxations are likely to bolster the production of packaging labels. The adoption of production machinery reduced capacities, and part-time shifts may enable manufacturers to recover losses and improve market position. These factors are likely to boost market growth during the pandemic.
