In-mold Labels Market likely to surge at a vigorous 3.2% CAGR during the assessment period 2022-2031

Press Release from Future Market Insights

According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the in-mold labels market will top US$ 1.1 Bn in 2021. The market has been forecast to exhibit 3.2% CAGR between 2021 and 2031. In-mold labels are manufactured using blow moulding, injection moulding, and thermoforming wherein the in-mold film is pressed on the container with the presence of excess heat.

These labels are therefore highly preferred in food and pharmaceutical packaging.  In-mold labels can also be customized according to the customer requirements in terms of sizes and specifications. They are manufactured from plastics and paper material which can be recycled, thereby, offering sustainable labelling solutions.

Key Takeaways from In-mold Labels Market

  • Based on material, polypropylene (PP) will remain most preferred for in-mold label manufacturing.
  • Offset printing will remain the preferred in-mold label process, creating incremental opportunity of US$ ~152.5 Mn during 2021-2031.

“The rising demand for product safety and improved graphics of labels among the industries such as food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, personal care & cosmetics, and others will fuel the demand for in-mold labels. The “no label look” of in-mold labels is expected to push their sales through the forecast period” says an FMI analyst.

Elimination of the Gluing Step to Create High Demand for In-Mold Labels

The labels applied with glue have the risk of falling off from the product or container as the temperature or weather conditions change. This not only leads to the defect in the labelling but also affects the product safety in terms of the various specifications mentioned on the product label. In-mold labels are attached to the container with the help of in-mold label films with excessive heat and then pressed inside the walls of the container.

This eliminates the gluing step and thereby makes the labelling process easy. This not only eliminates the gluing process but also enhances the graphic properties of the label. The gluing process in label adherence is time consuming. Also it makes the packaging vulnerable to temperature or weather changes. Alternatively, in-mold labels are preferred as more viable labelling options.
