                                                Labels forecasts for 2011 & 2016

       By Sunil Nair
       Dated: Dec 10, 2007

       US label shipments are expected to surpass $18 billion in 2011. Sales will benefit from the continual
       development of materials and printing technologies that allow labels to provide products with a unique
       brand identity

       US label shipments are expected to surpass $18 billion in 2011. Sales will benefit from the continual
       development of materials and printing technologies that allow labels to provide products with a unique
       brand identity in the midst of a crowded marketplace. Full container labeling, which permits greater
       utilization of available space for graphics and marketing, will support growth, as will a shift toward more
       costly plastic labels that offer the “no-label look.”
        Bar coding, smart labeling to boost secondary labels
        Demand for secondary labels is projected to experience favorable growth based on the penetration of bar
       coding labels in the transportation and distribution sector, as well as advances in the electronic article
       surveillance and smart labeling markets. Demand will benefit from the increasingly important role labels
       play in electronic data processing and inventory control systems. The retail sector is the largest user of
       secondary labels, although the institutional, transportation and distribution sectors utilize them as well.
        Plastic label stock to continue inroads on paper
        Although paper is the most widely used label stock in the US, and will remain so through 2011, plastic
       continues to make inroads. Growth in plastic label stock demand will be based on the aesthetic and
       performance advantages of plastic labels; the growing use of plastic packaging; and the popularity of
       labeling
        methods like pressure sensitive, in-mold and shrink sleeve, which rely heavily on plastic substrates. A
       healthy pace of new product development will also buoy demand for plastics. Of the major label resins,
       polypropylene is forecast to exhibit the fastest growth, further supplanting polyvinyl chloride.
        PSA to remain dominant label application method
        Pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) will remain the dominant label application method through the forecast
       period. Gains will result as pressure sensitive labels continue to capture market share from glue-applied
       labels in primary packaging applications. Inroads will primarily be based on PSA’s superior aesthetics; a
       single-step application process; a shrinking cost differential and
        the low cost of dispensing equipment; and compatibility with a broader range of substrates and adhesives.
       Areas where pressure sensitive labels will achieve the most rapid gains include expanded content
       information labels and smart labeling. Technological improvements, such as in pressure sensitive label
       application equipment, will also promote growth through the forecast period.
