Growth in Film-based Release Liners to Augment Demand for Release Liners 

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest market report on the release liner market for the historical period 2014-2019 and forecast period 2020-2024. Increasing demand for convenient and durable labels ensuring proper adhesion is the primary driver for the release liner market.
  • Globally, the revenue generated by the release liner market has been estimated to be ~US$ 12.4 Bn in 2019 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.5% in terms of value during the forecast period of 2020-2024

Release Liner Market to Observe High Adoption of Film-based Labels

  • The growing adoption of labels for beverage packaging, particularly in wine packaging is anticipated to drive the demand for global release liner market across the globe
  • In addition, the demand for film-based liners, including polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP), and polyethylene (PE) is significantly high as compared to glassine, polyolefin-coated, and calendared Kraft release paper for these applications. This can be attributed to high demand for clear labels or no-label look labels, due to their high aesthetic appeal and thinner caliper material.
  • However, the availability of competitive solutions such as liner-less labels might restrict the growth of the global release liner market to an extent

Companies Focusing on Manufacturing Low Silicone Transfer Release Liners

  • Leading manufacturers operating in the global release liner market such as Loparex and UPM Raflatac are developing release liners, which require low silicone transfer during manufacturing processes. These liners allow for a low coating weight of silicon. Lower coat weights helps companies to reduce cost and make drying easier to accomplish.
  • Another advantage of low silicon transfer liners is that they achieve a stable release of the labels, allowing them to come off predictably and uniformly time after time

Liner-less Labels & UV Curable Silicone Materials Gaining Traction

  • The label industry from the last few years have seen a growing interest in several areas such as thinner film materials, liner-less labels, in-line narrow web production equipment and recyclability
  • Liner-less labels for its composition advancement along with the use of BOPP have gained wide acceptance from beverages industry for its characteristics such as facestock, adhesive, and lightweight. This trend has been noticed in Europe, South America and most recently in the U.S. Furthermore, radiation-curable silicones are preferred for its nature to provide perfect synergy for siliconizing 30 micorn BOPP and other heat-sensitive film polymeric material.

Implementation of Stringent Environmental Regulations against Use of Plastic Films

  • Most release liners comprise HDPE and PVC materials that are hazardous to the environment. Stringent EU regulations and FDA regulations, restricting use of harmful chemical substances such as PVC have led to increasing demand for environmentally sustainable products. This might pose a challenge to the global release liner market to a large extent.
  • However, several release liner manufacturers are focusing on developing bio-based labeling materials, which are relatively less hazardous for the environment. These release liners are difficult to manufacture and require high capital investment. This high capital investment for the development of these products poses a major challenge for small-scale players operating in the regional market.
