Today, the Asian region represents the highest percentage of the p-s label market, with a 38% share -- and is still growing. North America, Europe, and even South America also experienced growth in 2019. However, the fastest-growing but currently small, regional market is now Africa and Middle East, which saw 3.6% growth last year – and is a new focus point for the labeling and packaging industry as a whole.
Globally, the food and beverage end-use segments represent the highest use of p-s labels in primary labeling applications, with a 44% share of the total market. However, significantly, transport and logistics applications represent a 47% share of p-s use today – a sign of the times, because variable information printing is the key factor in supporting a safe, trustworthy e-commerce/internet sales supply chain.
