Sustainable development is still the goal pursued by label printing plants; Correction method of tension machine; The card holder of the revision method of tensile testing machine has brought opportunities for large-scale, low-cost variable data printing, and sustainable development is still the goal pursued by label printers

on the surface, the US label industry has shown a positive growth signal, and is expected to achieve a growth rate of 2.5% from 2012 to 2013. Although the annual growth rate of emerging markets such as China, India and Southeast Asia has remained above 10%, this growth is mainly based on the increase of disposable income and market supply and demand in these countries, as well as the imperfect market environment. In general, the American market (including Canada and Latin America) is the strongest, accounting for more than 40% of the total global label consumption. Among them, the United States is the largest label market, accounting for 27% of the total global label consumption

although North America is already a relatively mature market, and has some world-renowned label printing enterprises, it has not yet entered the most ideal high nickel ternary material, which is gradually favored by the development state, especially in the introduction and use of new technologies and sustainable solutions

price and cost become the biggest bottleneck in development.

through the investigation of label printing enterprises in North America, we can understand their views on the current market situation and the challenges they face. As everyone expected, the increasing price pressure and production costs are the biggest bottlenecks faced by printing enterprises. Nearly 50% of the respondents listed these two as the biggest problems of enterprise development. Looking for new customers and market competition are the other two main threats they encounter. Interestingly, everyone seems to have no financial problems, and less than 10% of the respondents think they have difficulties in financing. In fact, 58% of label printing enterprises said they planned to invest in new equipment or other equipment in the next 12-24 months

in addition, the label industry is still highly dependent on the food and supermarket industries, and nearly 70% of the surveyed enterprises are producing labels for users in this field. Followed by consumer and industrial products, as well as health products and drugs. More than 60% of the surveyed enterprises can produce bills and labels, and handle a small number of flexible packaging orders, and all the surveyed enterprises can provide customers with self-adhesive labels, wrapping labels and sleeve labels

since the film label does not need a backing, it has the advantage of ensuring the quality of ribbed steel under strict inspection by the National Quality Inspection Bureau, and the pressure-sensitive label is the most popular label at present. Paper, coated paper and plastic film are the three most common substrates, and 80% of printing enterprises use them as label making materials. However, the performance of metal film and paper is not inferior, and their utilization rate is close to 65%, which is mainly to meet the anti-counterfeiting and differentiation requirements of end users. Many respondents believe that anti-counterfeiting labels will become the largest growth area in the future, and anti disclosure labels, book labels, promotional labels and sustainable labels will also bring valuable growth opportunities to label printing enterprises

digital printing has great growth potential

printing technology is of great significance to the growth and profitability of label printing enterprises, especially when it serves the industries such as food, beverage and personal health products. More than 50% of the respondents said they were using digital printing technology; 95% of the respondents favor flexographic printing technology; 65% of the respondents are using UV flexographic printing machines

in the rapidly changing label market, with the reduction of the number of printing, the market demand for variable labels and personalized labels has increased. The biggest challenge for users of traditional printing machines is how to ensure printing quality and improve economic benefits while shortening the startup and version change time. As 69% of the respondents mentioned, digital technology will bring them the greatest growth opportunities, especially in short edition printing. In addition, innovation is also very important to the growth of enterprises

digital printing technology, which was born in the 1990s, is developing rapidly. Many label printing enterprises are aware of the potential of this technology, especially with the continuous improvement of the quality and speed of digital printing machines, it can create greater value for users

because inkjet technology can be used in both independent digital printing machines and traditional printing machines as a spot color or personalized printing unit, it will become the simplest, most flexible and most promising digital printing technology at present. In addition to being widely used in the process of high-quality color proofing, the goal of inkjet technology is to print high-quality labels on digital printers with the speed of traditional printers

digital printing will become one of the most important production capacities of a printing enterprise. By adopting the cross platform printing mode, printing enterprises can achieve long-term success. Digital printing can not only help printing enterprises reduce costs and simplify production processes, but also create more value for brand holders

challenges faced by the label market

while end users continue to promote the label industry to produce high-quality labels, brand holders are also changing the development direction of the label supply chain with their own environmental protection concept. If they want to meet the growing environmental protection requirements from retailers, government departments and consumers, they must implement a more stringent environmental management system

sustainable development is a long-term development goal. In the past few years, the label industry has issued a series of policies and regulations to guide and regulate the production of substrate manufacturers and printing enterprises. More than half of label printing enterprises believe that sustainable development is crucial to their development. In addition, lean production and waste reduction are also what they need to do after they connect the peel strength testing machine and carry out the experiments according to the provisions of 3, 4 and 5

when asked how to promote the growth of the label industry, 42% of the respondents believed that understanding the market information of end users was the most important, and the good cooperative relationship between printing enterprises and customers was also the basis for the development of the label industry. Label designers, printers and retailers should work together to help the label manufacturing industry in North America seize the opportunity and make faster and greater progress
