In-Mold Labels Market Overview


The In-Mold Labels Market is witnessing rapid growth owing to the rise in the need for decorative and durable labels in the modern packaging industry. The Global In-Mold Labels Market share was valued at USD 3.18 billion in 2020. The better quality of in-mold labels over other labeling products makes them a preferable choice in the market. 


In in-mold labeling, the preprinted labels are thermally attached to plastic containers during the molding process. This technique enhances the durability of labels and gives a label look to the container. Moreover, these labels also offer a wide range of print colors, textures, and effects. Furthermore, they are scratch-resistant, moisture resistant, and thermally stable. The Global In-Mold Labels Market is estimated to grow USD 3,364.10 million at a Compound Annual Growth Rate ( CAGR ) of 4.50% over the forecast 2021-2030.


Packaging and the overall appearance of a product are vital factors affecting the product's demand in the market. In-mold labels give the option of 360 ° print on the packages. It can also be placed on containers of varying shapes and forms. As packaging and labeling plastic fuse together during in-mold labeling, it ensures the recyclability of the packaging plastic. Therefore, the demand for these labels is rising significantly. The global In-Mold labels Market value is estimated to be worth USD 4.3 billion by the end of the current forecast period in 2028.
