AWA Alexander Watson Associates has published the AWAreness report Global Sleeve Label Market and Technology Review 2007. This is the expanded edition of AWA’s 2005 report on the shrink sleeve label market. Aimed at those involved in the production and use of labeling and product decoration technologies, the report examines the global and regional markets for sleeve labels, as well as developments and growth opportunities. The study focuses on shrink sleeves, stretch sleeves and MD shrink/roll-on-shrink-on sleeves.
The company also has published its first report on the labeling market in South America: South American Market Study & Sourcebook 2007. The report details the main labeling technologies — pressure sensitive, glue applied, sleeving, and in-mold — in South America. For pressure sensitive and glue applied, which are the leading label formats, a value chain complements the analysis.
