Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global In-mold Labels Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The Global In-mold Labels market to grow at a CAGR of 5.81% over the period 2013-2018

In-mold labeling is the process of applying labels to products such as containers or bottles during the manufacturing process. In-mold labels are known as automated packaging systems. This system places the printed films or paper inside the cavities of molds or containers using vacuum before starting the molding process, which merges the product with the label. This type of process eliminates the need for labeling post production. In-mold labeling is used in three types of applications: injection molding, blow molding, and thermoforming IML processes.

The increase in the demand for F&B products is boosting the demand from emerging markets such as China, India, and South America. Printed package labeling, especially for consumer goods such as F&B products, is gaining popularity because it is considered as a front-line marketing and branding tool for consumer goods manufacturers.

According to the report, the reduction in labeling costs is a major contributor to the market growth. The IML procedure eliminates the need for separate post-decoration, which leads to a reduction in additional labor and raw material costs.

Further, the report states that the increased use of printed labels is a major hindrance to the market growth because of the increase in demand for flexible packaging such as pouches and films and the increased use of convenient packaging solutions.
