In-mold labelled tubes are manufactured through a technique of decorating the product during its molding process. In this technique, the label is positioned/printed in the mold and the polymer matrix is poured thereby forming the complete in-mold labelled products. This method ensures simultaneous production of tubes and their labelling thus faster lead time of batch/bulk production of tubes. In-mold labelling can be easily used with thermoforming, injection molding and blow molding technologies. Metallic effects, holographic, matt, gloss finish on same tube can be done. Also, the graphic quality printed on the tubes are photographic and the pre- printed labels in the mold enhances shelf image of the products. Importantly, in-mold label technique covers maximum area for decoration. In 2015, Vetroplas was the first one to launch wide range of tubes (cylindrical and elliptical tubes) with in-mold labeling technology. The global market for in-mold labelled tubes is expected to boost by brand owners of various end user industry industries during the forecast period.
The in-mold labelled tubes market is primarily driven by the fact that production time or lead time of in-mold labelled tubes is very fast. Besides, the options for decoration of the tubes are unlimited with full coverage of the tube area from shoulder to seal are driving the in-mold labelled tubes market. The tubes for food products, oral care, beauty products and pharmaceutical products fuels the demand for in-mold labelled tubes market.
In-mold labelled tubes market growth can be hindered owing to few restraints. The capital investment for in-mold labelling technology is high possess challenge for new entrains in the market. Also, the expertise printers for in-mold labelling field are quite low which might affect the growth of in-mold labelled tubes market.
The global in-mold labelled tubes market is segmented on the basis of technology type, and end use industry.
