Converters and suppliers who would like a preview of the North American Label Study soon to be published by the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) should visit the institute’s booth (99) at Labelexpo Americas 2006. Labelexpo will be held September 11-14 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago.
The TLMI label study, updated by the association every three years, aims to inform label converters and suppliers about the drivers shaping the pressure sensitive label market. It also provides benchmark-level researched market data and trend information to assist companies in making business decisions critical to their growth and profitability.
“Publication of the North American Label Study helps to fulfill TLMI’s mission of providing effective forums to address issues critical to the success of the narrow web, tag, label, packaging, and converting industries of North America,” notes TLMI Chairman Scott Pillsbury. “We look forward to sharing this valuable information with our members and the industry as a whole.”
Present and future demand for labels in the NAFTA region — both qualitative and quantitative — has been researched for all the available converting technologies, including wet glue, pressure sensitive, sleeves of all types, and in-mold. They are segmented by regional characteristics and the major end-use markets, from food and beverage to consumer durables, office products, and logistics applications.
Data is provided in volume terms (actual and projections), including growth rates, types of label materials and converting technologies used, and the relative position of the various labeling and product decoration technologies in each segment. End-user demand will also be evaluated through an extensive series of interviews with brand owners and label users.
