The global self-adhesive labels market is expected to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Self-adhesive labels also referred to as pressure-sensitive labels, are specialized types of multi-layered labels that are used in packaging applications.

Self-adhesive labels are made available in different forms based on the nature of the application, and the appropriate form or type of self-adhesive labels is selected depending on several factors. These labels are used in a wide range of packaging applications in various industry verticals, including consumer goods, home and personal care, food & beverages, and pharmaceutical.

Factors primarily driving the growth of this market include: the proliferating demand for self-adhesive various end-user industries and retail sectors; the fast-paced expansion of the e-commerce industry; the high adoption of self-adhesive labels in matured nations coupled with their growing popularity in the developing countries across the globe, and the rapidly developing retail sector worldwide.

Additionally, the number of stringent environmental regulations on the reduction of packaging materials to reduce the amount of waste accumulating in landfills across the globe is creating ample growth opportunities for the self-adhesive labels market. The information that is generally printed in packaging materials can be easily printed on the product using a self-adhesive label. Alongside, self-adhesive labels are also increasingly being preferred by companies looking to reduce their costs by adopting cost-effective and efficient solutions.
