Growing demand for release liner across an increasingly broad application base has resulted in new and expanded in-depth coverage for AWA Alexander Watson Associates’ newly-published AWA Global Release Market Liner Annual Review 2021.

While the pressure-sensitive labelstock segment continues to be the largest, with a 48% share of the market worldwide – and forecast growth at 3.9% per annum – other segments, benefiting from the release liner as a carrier for adhesive coatings or other substances, continue to grow, driving the overall growth of the global release liner market to 2.7% in 2020. Faster-growing markets like medical, and electronics, and other application segments such as graphic films, tapes, food and bakery, and envelopes, are all detailed, providing in-depth analysis in over 400 pages of data, information, and insights.

The new edition of the AWA Global Release Liner Annual Review 2021 covers all aspects of the market by geographical region and sub-region, substrate, application segments, trends, developments, and growth drivers, providing analysis and insights into an industry in which AWA has specialized for nearly 50 years.

Full details of the report may be found on the AWA website, where it is also possible to order online.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
