In-Mould Labels Market: An Overview
In-mould labels are the printed plastic labels that are applied to the product during the manufacturing of the containers and other packaging formats using blow moulding or thermoforming or injection moulding processes. In-mould labels can be said as a merger of labels and containers. In-mould labels and the containers are considered as a single unit after the label is fused to the container. In-mould labels are considered an integral part of the container and served as a pre-decorated item. In-mould labels are used by various end-use industries such as food & beverage, automobile, cosmetic & personal care, pharmaceuticals, and others. These labels eliminate the need for post labelling. As the In-mould labels are fused with the container, they become very durable and do not peel or curl. Moreover, In-mould labels match the resin of the container it can be recycled along with the container which acts as an added benefit for the end-users. Overall, the features and benefits of In-mould labels make it popular among the end-use industries which are anticipated to augment the sales of it. The COVID-19 had an adverse impact on the In-mould labels as the operation and production in various end-use industries were closed down or slowed down which lead to a decrease in demand for In-mould labels. Later with the slowly rising efficiency by the end-use industries and increasing production and operation among them is estimated to fuel the demand for In-mould labels.
In-Mould Labels Market: Dynamics
The rising demand and preference for durable packaging solutions fuels the demand for In-mould labels as these labels become durable and do not get peeled off after they are fused with the container.

As these labels are made of a layer of high barrier material it increases the shelf life of a product. This propels the demand for In-mould labels among the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The availability of quick design change over bolsters the demand for In-mould labels in the market. With technological advancement, variable data can be printed on the in-mould labels using offset printing or digital printing or other printing processes. This helps the manufacturers to print a variety of data on the In-mould labels as per the requirement of the end-use industries. Moreover, it provides a barrier against the light which is desired for pharmaceutical products, this pushes the demand for In-mould labels in the pharmaceutical industry. Considering the overall benefits of In-mould labels, the demand is projected to rise during the forecasted period. Along with several benefits, the fluctuating price of raw materials and lack of availability of raw materials hinder the market growth for In-mould labels.
