  1. 1. LabelsReport SummaryUS label shipments to reach $20 billion in 2015US label shipments are forecast to reach $20 billion in 2015. The pressure sensitive segment willcontinue to dominate output, accounting for more than 70 percent of the total. Although pressuresensitive labels will expand at a healthy rate, they will continue to face growing competitionfrom alternative labeling methods such as stretch sleeve and heatshrink, and in-mold labels.Among these, heat-shrink labels are projected to rise at the fastest rate through 2015, with gainsattributable to their ability to form-fit contoured containers, providing 360- degree graphics and abroad promotional area, which enable consumer products to stand out in a crowded marketplace.Plastic to be fastest growing stock materialPaper will remain by far the leading stock material in the label industry for the near future.However, it will continue to lose market share to plastic, which will account for more than one-quarter of label shipments by 2015. Plastic stock materials will gain popularity due to theiraesthetic and performance advantages over paper, as well as a broad shift in favor of plasticpackaging. Moreover, plastic is heavily utilized in pressure sensitive, heat-shrink and stretchsleeve, in-mold, and thermal transfer labels, each of which is expected to grow at a healthy rate.Among plastic label resins, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride are widely used, although thelatter will lose out to other plastic substrates with lower perceived environmental and healthrisks. In particular, trends favoring more environmentally friendly substrates will propel gains forpolylactic acid, albeit from a very small base.Most US labels are printed in some manner before sale to the final user. Flexography representsthe leading printing method, benefiting from its prominent position in the pressure sensitive andsleeve label segments. Additional printing technologies include lithography, screen, letterpress,gravure and digital. Among these, digital printing will enjoy the most rapid gains, expanding at adouble-digit annual pace through the forecast period. Label converters will increasingly invest indigital presses to capitalize on trends favoring shorter label runs and mass customization,particularly as product personalization functions as a key marketing tool. Different printingprocesses can also be combined in an effort to create higher quality label graphics. This trendwill have a positive effect on the use of screen and digital technologies.Browse All Database Market Research ReportsGood growth opportunities in secondary packagingPrimary packaging represents the leading application for US labels Market.
