The Global Self-Adhesive Labels Market Size is expected to reach USD 83.5 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period of 2022–2032.


Market Overview

Self-adhesive labels are typically used to attach to packaging. Labeling technology is a crucial part of the medical and food supply chains. They allow doctors and pharmaceutical companies to provide personalized information to individual patients, as well as facilitate goods tracing and tracking throughout the value chain. These labels provide basic information about the item. They are also used for marketing purposes to gain attention and attract customers. These labels are multifaceted frameworks with data imprinted on a superficial level. Self-adhesive labels consist of three layers: a discharge liner, a layer of glue, and the face material. A discharge liner is primarily made of paper with silicone on one side. Increasing consumer awareness of product ingredients and rising demand for consumer goods are key market drivers. They are a simple, convenient, and time-saving way to label. The rapid expansion of the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries is likely to create opportunities for the global label market. Water or other adhesives are not needed for the simple application of self-adhesive labels.


Report Coverage

This research report categorizes the market for the global self-adhesive labels market based on various segments and regions, forecasts revenue growth, and analyzes trends in each submarket. The report analyses the key growth drivers, opportunities, and challenges influencing the global self-adhesive label market. Recent market developments and competitive strategies such as expansion, product launch, and development, partnership, merger, and acquisition have been included to draw the competitive landscape in the market. The report strategically identifies and profiles the key market players and analyses their core competencies in each sub-segment of the global self-adhesive labels market.


Driving Factors

Self-adhesive labels are commonly used to describe the contents, manufacturing date, expiry date, and other product-related information. This factor assists in selecting the appropriate product based on the logo, label description, and instructions. These labels are commonly used in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, and consumer goods sectors. Global demand for packaged food, clothing, electronics, consumer durables, and non-durable goods is on the rise. The growing population increases demand for consumer goods, and daily use of products contributes to self-adhesive labels market growth. The product is less expensive than other labeling options, such as digital printing, painting, and others. The raw materials needed to make these labels, such as plastic, paper, adhesives, and other materials, are instantly available and inexpensive when compared to digital printing inks used for direct printing. This is one of the factors that will drive the market.


Restraining Factors

Printing directly on packaging surfaces is a constraint for the self-adhesive labels market. While self-adhesive labels are versatile and easy to use, some industries prefer direct printing on packaging materials, which eliminates the need for additional label application steps. This preference for direct printing may limit the market potential for self-adhesive labels, particularly in industries where integrated and cost-effective solutions are valued, and where printing directly on packaging satisfies specific production requirements or regulatory standards.


Market Segmentation

The global self-adhesive labels market share is classified into printing technology, application, and region.

  • The flexography segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global self-adhesive labels market during the forecast period.   

Based on the printing technology, the global self-adhesive labels market is categorized into flexography, digital printing, screen printing, and gravure. Among these, the flexography segment is expected to hold the largest share of the self-adhesive labels market during the forecast period. Flexographic labels stand out for their durability and resilience. Flexo inks adhere well to a variety of substrates, making labels highly resistant to environmental factors such as moisture, heat, and abrasion. This durability is especially important for labels used in harsh environments, such as chemical, automotive, and outdoor applications. Flexography is expected to remain the leading printing technology in the self-adhesive label market as industries demand more efficient and dependable labeling solutions.


  • The food & beverages segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global self-adhesive labels market during the forecast period.   

Based on the application, the global self-adhesive labels market is divided into food & beverages, pharmaceutical, retail, and home & personal care. Among this, the food & beverages segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the self-adhesive labels market during the forecast period. The emphasis on brand differentiation and consumer engagement has fueled the use of self-adhesive labels in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers use these labels to establish a distinct brand identity, effectively communicate product information, and engage customers through promotional and marketing messages. The ability of self-adhesive labels to accommodate various shapes, sizes, and design elements contributes to their popularity in helping brands stand out on crowded store shelves.
