The self-adhesive labels market has reportedly been growing in accordance with the growth trends of the converting and packaging industries. Factors such as increasing urban population, demand for pharmaceutical supplies, increasing consumer awareness, and growth of the e-commerce industry have propelled the growth of the global self-adhesive labels market.

With the increasing demand for convenience and quality food products, people are reportedly opting for packaged food products, where the product information and other details such as nutritional information and manufactured and expiration dates are printed.

Increasing disposable incomes of people in developing countries and changing preferences of manufacturers for cost-efficient and effective labeling are some of the factors that are driving the self-adhesive labels market.
