Can in mold labels become the next niche market

during China print 2013 exhibition, Mr. Fu Qiang, consultant of Label Printing Association of China printing and equipment industry association and director of technical service department, made a detailed introduction to the development status and prospects of in mold labels in China, and announced the establishment of China in mold label Professional Committee

what is in mold label

what is in mold label? The so-called in mold label is to put the printed trademark label image sheet (with hot melt adhesive on the back) directly into the mold area in the plastic molding machine, and combine the label with the container through blow molding or injection molding to form a complete packaging container

in mold labels are divided into injection mold labels and blow molding mold labels

advantages of in mold labels

in mold labels are a new form of packaging, especially for daily chemical products with labels as the main outer packaging. The label surface material in the mold is made of film material, which is waterproof and moisture-proof, and will not appear the common blistering, wrinkling, falling off and other phenomena of ordinary labels. At the same time, the film material does not absorb ink, the graphics and texts are bright, and the visual effect is good

in terms of label price, although the in mold label is much higher than the ordinary label, because the printed label and bottle body are processed at one time, there is no need for a separate label labeling process, which saves the cost of labeling; In addition, in mold labels do not need backing paper, so the cost of in mold label materials still has room to fall, so the comprehensive cost is not high compared with ordinary labels

in mold label has anti-counterfeiting function. Because ordinary self-adhesive technology can also be used in China, it has developed very mature in heterojunction solar cells, n-type double-sided solar cells, perc batteries and IBC back electrode batteries, which are easy to be copied, while in mold labels are produced together with bottle bodies. The process from design to finished products is complex, and the equipment investment is large, which is not easy to be copied

from the perspective of green environmental protection, the in mold label material and bottle body material are basically PP, PE or pp/pe composite materials. The label and bottle body can be melted and recycled at the same time for secondary use, so the in mold label meets the requirements of green printing

the basic status of in mold labels in China

in mold labels are a very important category in label printing. Although they account for a small share of the entire label market, they have great development potential. According to statistics, worldwide, in mold labels accounted for 2% of the total label printing volume in 2010, with an annual growth rate of 3.3%

the Asian region where China is located is the largest potential market for in mold labels. It is expected that the development rate in the next five years will be significantly higher than that in developed countries in Europe and the United States, so in mold labels will have great development potential in China

China's in mold label technology was introduced from abroad in the 1990s. At present, it is mainly used in lubricating oil, cosmetics, daily chemicals, medicine, food and other industries, with a small amount, accounting for less than 0.5% of the total label consumption. At present, there are about 40 ~ 50 manufacturers engaged in the production of in mold labels, 3 material suppliers, more than 100 manufacturers specializing in the production of in mold label blow molding machines, injection molding machines and supporting robots and molds, and more than 100 end users of various types of in mold labels. Nevertheless, the market is developing rapidly and has great potential

according to the proportion of label application in China, the lubricant industry uses the most, accounting for 60%; Household chemical and household chemical industries ranked second, accounting for 30%; In addition, the pharmaceutical industry accounts for 5%, the food industry accounts for 4%, and others account for 1%

from the perspective of regional division, the successful installation and commissioning of the sleeper static load testing machine makes the error not greater than 0.10/1000, which is similar to the distribution of the overall label market, 20% in North China, 40% in East China and 40% in South China. The North China market is dominated by lubricating oil and food; The East China market is dominated by daily chemicals, household chemicals and pharmaceuticals; The South China market is dominated by daily chemicals, household chemicals and pharmaceuticals

According to Mr. Fu Qiang, the label printing branch of the China printing and Equipment Industry Commission began planning to establish an in mold label Professional Committee at the end of last year, which has been officially approved by the association at the beginning of this year. The in mold label professional committee will organize and unite the whole industrial chain of printing plants, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, mold manufacturers and end users in the field of in mold labels in China to jointly develop the largest in mold label application market in China and even the world

the in mold label professional committee to be established can organize relevant units together, through mutual learning, participate in exchanges and training at home and abroad, so as to improve the level of in mold labels in China, popularize the application of in mold label technology, and make contributions to the development of label printing industry in China
