Label Adhesive Market – By Technology
Hot melt technology dominated the label adhesive market in 2021. The growing demand for this technology is attributed to the robust properties provided by it to the adhesive labels compared to other technologies. Holt melt technology doesn’t need any dispersing agent like technologies with solvents and also it helps in limiting waste and emissions of volatile chemicals. Moreover, the adhesives produced through this technology dry quickly and offer strong adhesiveness, allowing for precise positioning of the labels. Owing to such robust qualities, market players are focusing on the expansion of the hot-melt technology portfolio. For instance, in August 2021, US-based Avery Dennison launched a new hot melt adhesive for product labels in sustainable packaging solutions. The company got validation of biopreferred certification from the USDA for this new hot melt adhesive for labelling purposes. Such developments with the help of hot melt technology will increase its demand in the forecast period.
