The demand situation for PSAs for labels and narrow-web graphics is high because there is no other alternative for these products at present. At the same time, there had been price rises due to raw material shortage and allocation of raw materials. This results in a gap between the demand and supply situation.
“Labels and narrow-web graphics have changed from being only product identifiers to become advertising tools. These labels and narrow-web graphics have become more of an appealing work of art and are used to convince the customer to buy a particular product;” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Raja Prasanna. “As more and more products are being marketed like these, there has been growing demand for these kinds of PSA labels and narrow-web graphics.”
The foremost challenge that PSA manufacturers face is the raw material price increases due to short supply. All other challenges that the industry faces are an aftermath of this challenge.
Shortage of acrylic monomers and isoprene during the last 18 months exposes the PSA manufacturers to price rises that the industry has never seen before.
“Although the rubber-based manufacturers have an alternative of shifting to butadiene, the acrylic-based PSA manufacturers had to wait for their quota of raw materials in the allocation process,” explains Prasanna.
Efficient resource management strategies, and extensive portfolio of technologies are key factors to sustenance and growth in the PSA industry for labels and narrow-web graphics.
