Looking back on the substantial growth of the global label industry in 2010,

recently, the industrial transformation capacity of Dutch but technological achievements is still insufficient. Alexander Watson associates, a blue Market Research Company (aka AWA), released the survey report "global label and decoration product market review (2011)". The report believes that 2010 can be regarded as a year of substantial recovery in the global and regional label market. On the whole, the global label market increased by 6%, which was mainly driven by the markets in China, India and South America, while the markets in the United States and Europe were also recovering. In Europe, the growth rate in Western Europe was slow, while eastern Europe showed sustained strong growth

the report points out that the label printing industry is recovering. Judging from the business reports of individual companies, the recovery is still quite strong, even ahead of the recovery level of other manufacturing industries. Some enterprises have been little affected by the economic recession, while most enterprises have been affected by the economic recession to a certain extent. They have reduced their labor force more or less and survived the difficulties, but some enterprises still suffered heavy losses

packaging and labeling play a key role in brand development, and brand makers know that they can't save money on product identification and decoration even in a weak economy

annual consumption growth of 6%

2010 can be regarded as a year for the global and regional label market to achieve a substantial recovery. In 2009, the label industry was gradually turning back from the rapid decline in 2008 and the beginning of 2009; In 2010, the film produced by the label market, such as PP film blowing machine, was suitable for all kinds of supermarket shopping bags, mushroom bags and other bag fields with relatively high hardness and low requirements for stretch and brightness, and finally showed a positive growth trend on the whole. According to the survey report "global label and decoration products Market Review (2011 Edition)" released by awa company. Awa said that the global label consumption in 2010 was estimated to be 43.4 billion square meters, an increase of about 6% over 2009. However, the report also pointed out that this growth should also be based on the performance of the regional market economy and the factors that the market supplemented the exhausted product inventory

the report points out that China and India have the fastest growing label markets, followed by South America. It seems that these regions are insulated from the economic recession, and demand and investment remain strong. However, these regions are also facing inflation (to a certain extent, it is caused by the inflow of foreign capital) and the government may implement the four load-bearing light bars fixed on the machine base more stringent monetary control policy, which will have a negative impact on the future development of the label printing industry

the European market is still relatively difficult. The report said that the fragile economy and sovereign debt of these countries have led to spending cuts and rising unemployment. Nevertheless, driven by the increased demand in Eastern Europe and the replenishment of inventory in Western Europe, the European market also had considerable restorative growth in 2010. Moreover, it is expected that raw materials will be in short supply in 2011, and prices will rise further. Some companies increased the purchase and stockpiling of label materials in 2010. The report writes

in the United States on the other side of the Atlantic, tax relief and more borrowing promote the development of the market, which can also stimulate the growth of the label market in the medium and short term, but the increase in borrowing will lead to an increase in future interest costs, which will slow down the growth rate in the long run

all kinds of labels are the main indicators of renal function increment

in terms of all kinds of labels, pressure-sensitive labels and adhesive labels still occupy the leading position in the global label market. According to the estimation of awa, these two kinds of products account for 81% of the market share of the global label industry, showing a downward trend compared with 82% in 2009 and 85% in 2008. In 2010, pressure sensitive labels showed a strong recovery momentum, reaching or even exceeding the market level before 2007. The global pressure sensitive label market increased by 8.5%, of which the North American market increased by 5.5%, and the European market increased by 10.5%. At the same time, China, India and South America also continued to grow. The market growth rate of adhesive labels is about 4.5%

sleeve labels account for about 12% of the total global labels. According to awa, the market growth rate of various sleeve labels in 2010 was about 5%. Heat shrinkable labels are becoming more and more popular, with growth in most national markets, especially in North America and Europe

although the output of in mold labels accounts for only 2% of the global label market, this market has achieved growth, with a growth rate of about 2.5%. The report points out that except for the obvious decline of in mold labels in North America, other regions have achieved growth

M & A cases continue to increase

the report points out that label manufacturers were under pressure from both material suppliers and customers in 2010. On the one hand, brand owners and end customers are facing the dilemma of shrinking profits, requiring label production prices to continue to fall; On the other hand, raw material suppliers, especially substrate, ink and coating manufacturers, are forced to transfer the pressure of price growth to printing enterprises

the prices of polymers, films, paper, ink and energy increased throughout 2010. According to the analysis, the reasons for the rise in product prices include the reduction in the output of raw materials in some regions, the non reopening of the production capacity of some key ingredients after being closed from 2008 to 2009, and the competition of raw materials from other industries. For example, due to the increase in the demand for PET film on display screens, relevant manufacturers have offered higher prices to manufacturers of such products, and the label industry will face the price rise of the same kind of raw materials

in addition, there were 52 M & A activities in the global label industry in 2010, compared with 41 in 2009. The number in 2010 exceeded the average of 40 cases per year in the past eight years. It is expected that this pace of mergers and acquisitions will continue this year. The report points out that the purpose of mergers and acquisitions is to obtain market share and expand product categories. Blaige company, a packaging and chemical industry investment company based in Chicago, said that one quarter of the M & A transactions in the label industry in 2010 were private equity funds. In this regard, according to the report of awa, although mergers and acquisitions are ongoing, the industry is still very fragmented. In North America and Europe, there are more than 3000 printers and manufacturers in the label industry, exceeding the number of other packaging enterprises
