What is the role of the food industry?

“The food industry will be the torchbearer of the Linerless label market”

Linerless labels are frequently used in the food industry to provide detailed information on various food products such as seafood, poultry, vegetables, meat and snack foods. Linerless labels are used to provide accurate product information and make the product attractive. This factor is likely to sustain the demand for linerless labels over the forecast period (2022-2029). Additionally, increasing consumption of processed foods and a variety of dairy products across the world is expected to create a significant demand for linerless labels.

Major packaging manufacturers are adopting linerless labels because these labels can be applied to packaged food products with many formats such as top, top and two sides, top and side, C wrap and full chain. The ability of linerless labels to provide visually appealing labeling and improved packaging is expected to drive adoption of linerless labels by end users.

Competitive landscape

The liners used in conventional labels cannot be recycled or reused. Reducing industrial waste is one of the major economic and industrial challenges for packaging manufacturers. Additionally, the government of several countries has introduced strict guidelines to minimize industrial waste and carbon footprint. Due to these factors, major packaging manufacturers are shifting away from conventional packaging solutions towards sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging solutions. UN

Like liner labels, linerless labels have no liner layer on the back, reducing waste disposal expense and downtime in the manufacturing process. Thus, end users are increasingly adopting environmentally friendly linerless labels. These factors are estimated to accelerate the growth of the linerless label market over the coming period.

  • Bostik, in January 2020, introduced a new adhesive for linerless labels. It contributes to improving the efficiency of the label production line and paves the way for a sustainable solution for QSRs.
  • Lexit Group, in August 2019, started producing linerless labels by adding Ravenwood Packaging’s Coater Com500F, a new coating machine. The demand of the Scandinavian market could be satisfied.
