Increasing urban population is driving the Self-Adhesive Labels Market

The global self-adhesive labels market size is projected to grow from USD 47.9 billion in 2021 to USD 62.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2026. Self-adhesive labels are made up of facestock, release liner, and adhesive. They have their back surface coated with an adhesive substrate that eliminates the requirement of glue or moistening. Self-adhesive labels is widely used in applications such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, consumer durables, home & personal care, retail labels, e-commerce, amongst others.

The increasing urban population is a factor for the growth in demand for products that use self-adhesive labels such as medicines, beverages, FMCGs (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods), and consumer durables. In APAC, the population shift from rural to urban areas has elevated the growth rate even further. According to the United Nations Population Division, the total population in APAC is projected to reach 5.1 billion by 2050, where the urban population will account for at least 68% of the total. Combined with the overall growth of the world’s population could add another 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050, with close to 90% of this increase taking place in Asia and Africa. The improved living standards will increase the demand for branded products, which will lead to a rise in demand for self-adhesive labels.
