Rising Demand from E-commerce Companies to Augment Growth

In the developing countries, such as India and China, the popularity and usage of e-commerce are growing rapidly. Therefore, it is essential to track the large traffic of goods. So, the packages are usually marked with various labels printed with descriptions and codes of the consignee and consignor. Researchers anticipated that approximately 200 billion parcels will be transferred through e-commerce companies per annum, by the end of 2025. It would further result in the higher demand for linerless labels. In addition to this, such backingless labels are mainly preferred by e-commerce companies as the conventional ones create a vast amount of waste. However, these linerless labels are in rolled forms. Hence, it is difficult to apply layers of adhesive over them. It may hamper the linerless labels market growth.
