The Evolution of Printing Technology and the Rise of Self-Adhesive Labels in the Global Market
Since Johannes Gutenberg imprinted copies of the Bible on his printing press in 1452, printing technology has played a pivotal role in shaping the world we live in. From the handwritten books of Diderot, to the profusion of publications printed worldwide today, printing technology has helped us learn and accumulate knowledge.
Self-adhesive labels are one of the most popular labeling options available for various products owing to their adhesive properties, UV resistance, solvent resistance, shear resistance, minimum temperature properties, and versatility. They are also a cost-effective and easy-to-use option for packaging and labeling purposes.
Based on type, the global market for self-adhesive labels is bifurcated into permanent and non-permanent. Permanent, by nature, accounts for the largest share of the self-adhesive labels market. They are durable and can be removed without damaging the labeling material. They are suitable for non-polar surfaces, films, and corrugated board. However, they are not recommended for labeling highly curved surfaces. They are also less expensive than other labeling options and offer a greater variety of adhesives.
