Global In-Mold Labels Market: Insights

The global in-mold labels market is projected to grow from USD 3.23 billion in 2021 to USD 4.27 billion by 2026 at a CAGR value of 5.0% from 2021-2026.

In-Mold labelling is an entirely automated mechanism where the paper or the film used for printing is positioned inside the mold container or into the designed cavity before printing or molding it on the desired surface. The labelling process is prominently used in a wide range of applications of molding plastic containers. The in-mold labelling process enables the labels to efficiently get attached to the containers during the process of molding itself, reducing the requirements of adjustments, designing, or decorations post the molding process. This process of molding has replaced the traditional labelling process by bringing in more efficiency and productivity in the market.

The increasing adaptation of in-mold label into various industries and rising adoption of advancing packaging style by most of the end-users has brought tremendous growth in the in-mold labelling market. The need for the consumers for more attractive and catchy packaging styles and increasing demand for creative packaging to attract customers has boosted the demand and use of in-mold labelling techniques in the market.

The changing lifestyle and rising consumption of packaged food, increasing demand for better and high-value products and microbial free packaging, as well as high purchasing power among the consumers have drastically changed the manufacturer’s preferences towards more appealing styles of packaging. These trends have helped the market grow rapidly.

The increasing growth rate of the in-mold labels market is due to the features and benefits it facilitates to the end user industries and the consumers. The increased usage of 3D technology in in-mold labels enables high quality printing compared to the basic and traditional label printing techniques. This labelling process is also a more cost-efficient choice for the manufacturers, alongside providing increased outcomes in significantly less time. The molds' design also enables the printers to label the containers at any angle, side, or size. This kind of labelling technique also prevents wear and tear or any scratches and scrubs on the containers from excessive usage and strengthens the quality of containers, thus providing durability to the product.

With the augmentation of COVID-19, many industries faced both positive and negative impact on their revenues. However, for the in-mold labelling market, the scenario is different. For instance, the demand was positively high for packaged food due to the growing trend of at-home food services and rising need for creative packaging. Another major impact that was invited due to the pandemic crisis is the drastic decrease in the prices of the raw material which eventually decreased the global revenue in 2020. However, the market is expected to pick up the pace during the forecast period.
