Sophisticated substrates lead the charge in label sector growth

Sophisticated label substrates have experienced exponential growth due to demand for high-end applications according to FINAT’s latest findings. Since 2010 demand for PP-based materials has grown 78%, direct thermal papers are up 51% and white coated papers enjoyed a 24% increase. The figures show that while paper-based materials continue to dominate label materials de­mand, there has been a shift from basic primary and VIP labels towards more sophisticated, high-end applications.
