Labels

As Quoted In CEE Packaging

US label shipments will are projected to advance 4.5 percent annually through 2013. The pressure sensitive segment will claim most gains, while more rapid growth will be achieved by heat-shrink and stretch-sleeve, and in-mold labels. Paper will remain the most widely used stock material, but will be outpaced by plastic.

This study analyzes the $15.4 billion US label industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by raw and stock material, application method (e.g., pressure sensitive, glue-applied, stretch sleeve and heat shrink, thermal transfer, in-mold), printing technology and function (e.g., primary, secondary, industrial, decorative, mailing and shipping).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry players, including Avery Dennison, RR Donnelley and CCL Industries.
