Global Linerless Labels Market Outlook

The global linerless labels market would likely grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2023-2028. Linerless labels refer to pressure-sensitive labels that do not carry a liner. These have a special release coating that permits the winding of the labels on a roll without the adhesive sticking to the label underneath.

 

The coating also forms a chemical, UV, and moisture resistant barrier. Applications include pharmaceutical labelling, food and beverage, parcel delivery, and retail, among others. North America, Europe, and Asia are likely to be significant markets. 

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Benefits Afforded and Uses in Sustainable Manufacturing

Linerless labels do not carry a liner or backing paper. While liners generally carry a release coating enabling easy peeling away of the label without damaging the adhesive beneath the label (so that the label may adhere to the surface of an object such as an envelope or a box), linerless labels have a silicone release coating on the upper layer of the labels and special adhesive allowing them to peel away from labels beneath. The silicone-coating enables linerless labels to behave as their own liners.

 

Benefits of linerless labels include:

Less waste – As linerless labels do not have liners, waste and disposal costs are reduced. Further, less waste decreases the business or warehouse footprint, positively impacting the environment. It can also aid in waste-reduction efforts and compliance with government regulations related to the environment. Such benefits are likely to boost the global linerless labels market. 

 

Increased labels per roll – Media rolls of linerless labels carry almost fifty percent more labels, helping reduce transportation costs and storage.

 

Enhanced productivity and production efficiency – Linerless labels help enhance output and productivity. These labels warrant lesser media roll changes between print runs, resulting in lower downtime. This helps enhance production efficiency and decrease costs. 

 

Quicker processing – Due to reduced need for extra steps to peel the label from the liner and dispose the liners, processing is expedited. 

 

Reduced cost – Linerless printing reduces weight in mobile printers and decreases label roll shipping costs. Further, storage costs are saved as linerless labels carry more lables per roll. Also, linerless labels do not carry liners, which does away with the need to dispose off liners, decreasing disposal costs.

 

Decreased Safety Hazards – Linerless rolls decrease workplace slip hazards due to liner piles accumulating beneath printers.

 

Flexibility in applications and size – Linerless labels allow greater flexibility in printing different label lengths. Further, these labels may be used in many applications; industries include pharmaceutical labelling, food and beverage, parcel delivery, retail, and others. 

 

Linerless Labels Are Suited to Sustainable Manufacturing

With increasing attention to sustainable manufacturing, linerless labels are becoming increasingly popular. Linerless labels are considered an environmentally-friendly alternative, with businesses of varying sizes adopting linerless media for sustainable printing. Sustainable benefits of linerless labels include reduced waste and need of less material for production. Uses of linerless labels in sustainable manufacturing are expected to drive the global linerless labels market. 

 

Increasing Demand Making Companies Increase Capacity

In 2022, R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD) announced that it had significantly enhanced its capacity for direct thermal linerless label production in light of increased demand. The company was positioned to deliver an innovative and readily available labelling solution addressing increased productivity and sustainability.

 

In 2022, UPM Raflatac and Logopak entered into a collaboration to offer customers the first robust linerless solution in print and apply labelling. The collaboration was expected to enhance the automatic labelling of secondary packaging. 

 

Such developments are expected to drive the global linerless labels market.
