The global market for label applicators was valued at US$ 2,044.2 million in 2017. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period 2018-2028.
Label applicator is a machine used to apply pressure-sensitive labels directly to product containers, bottles, packages or drums. Rolls of labels are loaded into the applicator, then applied to the products. There are two general categories of applicator, those that apply pre-printed labels and those that print information directly onto the labels and then apply them to products. The label applicator consists of self-adhesive labels which have readymade gum on the back side and it can be pasted on the container with little press by the machine. Label applicators are useful in applying various labels type including RFID and smart labels, holographic labels, tamper evident or source tagging. Label applicator provides precise placement of pre-printed labels and eliminate the need for a manual or hand-apply process, they are designed for reliable, low-maintenance performance. Label Applicators are installed by many industries such as food & beverage, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and personal care & cosmetics among others. This machine used as an end of line packaging solution for these industries. For instance, in beverage industry, these machines are installed for applying labels on boxes, trays and bottles.
Food & beverage end use segment of the global label applicators market was valued at US$ 1,087.1 million in 2017 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period 2018-2028.
Drivers & Restraints
Revenue for the global label applicators market is driven by growth in end use sectors such as chemicals, personal care & cosmetics, food & beverages, and logistics & warehousing among other industries. Due to ease of application and growing demand of labels in manufacturing sectors is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Use of label applicators at the end of the production line is quite simple. Also, regulatory requirement of labeling in almost all industries is one of the key drivers for the demand of label applicators.
