AWA Alexander Watson Associates announces the new Global Release Liner Market Update 2015 featuring a comprehensive and current profile of the worldwide release liner market.

A key enabler for applying labels and tapes, protecting the seals on envelopes, hygiene products and consumer wound care products in addition to a variety of industrial applications, release liner is also the subject of considerable focus today in relation to reuse and recycling particularly in the high-volume labelstock market.

The eighth edition of this focused annual market report provides insights of value to all involved in, or seeking to explore, the release liner supply chain in terms of current and forecast future status.

According to the AWA Market Update, the estimated global volume consumption of release liner was 43,984 million square metres in 2014. Region-wise figures indicate that Asia consumed 37% of this total, ahead of both Europe and North America, each of which had a 28% market share.

Pressure-sensitive labelstock remains the prime end-use segment for both paper- and film-based liner, growing by 4% in 2014; however, the market for pressure sensitive tapes grew most dynamically at the global level at 9.7%.

AWA’s Global Release Liner Market Update 2015 brings together the important facts on volumes, growth rates, market structure and regional characteristics, as well as raw material trends and costs, regional differences, end-use markets, and environmental issues. The report also features the documented views of around 100 market participants on the release liner industry’s business platform as recorded in the company’s annual ‘voice of the industry’ survey, which spans globalisation, M&A activity, sustainability and environmental issues, industry costs and profitability, and growth expectations by region.

AWA Alexander Watson Associates complements its published reports on release liner with the annual Global Release Liner Conference, which alternates between Europe and North America, and is being held in Denver, Colorado this year in March.

The Global Release Liner Market Update 2015 is available to order online via the AWA Alexander Watson Associates website.
