Pressure sensitive liners provide tamper-evident features, and also aid in retaining the freshness of the packaged product. These liners are made up of polystyrene (PS) and are coated with torque-activated adhesives. This coating is responsible for pressure sensitive features of the liner.
Moreover, pressure sensitive liners are single-use liners, which can be placed on the mouth of various containers & jars. These liners do not need special equipment for application and can be easily peeled off. These features make pressure sensitive liners suitable for a wide range of applications.
Pressure sensitive liners can be used on a variety of container types including PE, HDPE, PVC, PP, PET and glass. Unlike heat induction liners, pressure sensitive liners can be applied without the need for additional equipment by merely placing on the mouth of the jar and closing it tightly. Also, various regulatory bodies, including the FDA, have made it mandatory for the manufacturers to use tamper-evident seals on pharmaceuticals and some of the packaged food products. This regulatory landscape is expected to fuel the growth of the pressure sensitive liner market in the coming years. Another key driver for pressure sensitive liner market is expected to be the shifting consumer preference towards reliable and secure packaging.
Along with this, usage of pressure sensitive liners can be seen as a positive step towards enhancing barrier properties and thereby adding consumer confidence in the brand. Ample new opportunities are present in the global pressure sensitive liner market as innovative materials, closure options and adhesives continue to be introduced, which possess child resistance, and other safety features as well. Owing to these factors, the outlook for the global pressure sensitive liner market looks promising in the foreseeable future.
However, pressure sensitive liners work well with dry products, but they lose their adherence properties on coming in contact with wet products such as oils and lotions. This restricts the application of pressure sensitive liners and might hamper the growth of the market in the coming years. Other liner alternatives such as heat induction liners or other foam liners are available in the global market which can be used with both wet & dry products. Thus, the threat of substitutes seems to be on the higher side in the global pressure sensitive liner market.

The geographical analysis of the global pressure sensitive liner market has revealed that North America is expected to lead the charts followed by Europe. This can be attributed to the stringent guidelines laid by the FDA, which has made it mandatory for the pharmaceutical companies to use tamper-evident packaging for over-the-counter drugs.
Furthermore, the countries of Asia Pacific are expected to represent robust growth potential for pressure sensitive liners due to increasing consumption of packaged food in the region. In the Latin America pressure sensitive liner market, Brazil is expected to hold the maximum market share by the end of 2019, followed by Mexico. This growth can be attributed to rising concerns over tampered food, pharmaceuticals and personal care products in the region.
Some of the key players operating in the global pressure sensitive liner market are Danbury Plastics, Inc., Tekni-Plex, Inc., Proofex Packagings Pvt. Ltd., and Sancap Liner Technology Inc., among others.
