Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Others

Vision Research Reports Says, the global release liners market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The global release liners market size is projected to surpass US$ 21 billion by 2027, Increasing demand for convenient and durable labels ensuring proper adhesion is the primary driver for the release liner market.

Release liners are an integral part of the manufacturing of tapes, fiber composites and medical film materials, as it prevents the sticky surface from prematurely adhering to the substrate. Use of release liners protects the adhesive applied on a label until the label is ready to use, this makes product handling easier. Release liners are coated on both sides using silicone as base release coating that provides a proper release value against the specific adhesive applied to them. Depending upon the texture and finish of the substrate, release liners are coated with extrusion or clay coatings which determine the smoothness and adhesion properties of the release liner.

Rising demand for industrial labels is a key driver for the release liner market. Labels account for a substantial share in the overall packaging industry. Release liners constitute a dominating portion of labels, thus the demand for release liners is highly correlated with that of labels and poised to increase during 2020-2027.

Asia Pacific to Remain at Forefront

As per VRR analysis, Asia Pacific accounts for nearly 45% of the global release liner market and is projected to continue its prominence through 2027. China and Japan account for 40% of the Asian market. However, India is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. This growth is expected to result from the high demand for labels and tapes in the region thus creating new market opportunities for release liners companies worldwide.

Growth in Film-based Liner Fueled by Increasing Demand for No-Label Look

Increased demand for clear-on-clear labels for no-label look application in the segment such as beer, beverages, health and personal care and food has to lead the manufacturer to develop film-based release liners. Film-based release shows several advantages over paper-based release liners which includes good clarity, durability, and high thickness control. The trend is expected to increase the market share of film-based release liners over the forecast period.

High Demand from Personal Care & Healthcare Sector to Create Growth Opportunities for Manufacturers of Release Liners

Hygiene is one of the major segments in the total healthcare and medical market, representing about 79% of release liner usage, mostly paper. Healthy growth of this segment is expected to continue, owing to various demographic factors; reflecting potential growth for release liners market over the forecast period. In addition to this, in the medical market, wound care dressings, surgical drapes and medical devices use a self-adhesive laminate featuring a separate silicon-coated release liner. Around 49% of the total release liners market in this segment is being captured by films, representing a strong opportunity for the manufacturers of release liners in future.

Furthermore, the manufacturers of release liners can maximize their profits by targeting personal care products such as cosmetic patches, acne, nose pore strips & anti-wrinkle pads, which are registering high sales globally.

Key Findings

  • Among different substrate materials, the film segment is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period followed by glassine segment. Rising demand for release liner from pharmaceutical, food & beverages, health, and personal care sector is expected to fuel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.
  • Revenue contribution of pressure-sensitive along with sleeving labeling technology to the global release liners market is estimated to account for more than 55% share by 2020
  • Pressure-sensitive label stock segment is expected to generate significant revenue throughout the forecast period, and account for nearly 54% of the global market in 2020             
  • The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to be the most lucrative market for release liners in terms of incremental opportunity and CAGR, and the sales revenue in this region is expected to increase at a CAGR 7.4% over the forecast period

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.
