Growing Consumption of Beer to Drive Demand for Specialty Paper in Labelling
Growing sales of pharmaceutical products is influencing the growth of packaging & labelling industry. Thermal paper caters to labelling requirements of pharmaceutical products for providing information including expiry date, price, and other related data of the product in brief. Growing consumption of beer has influenced the growth of beer bottle and specialty paper manufacturers globally. These manufacturers focus primarily on innovation in labels for gaining consumer attraction. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the global specialty paper market during the forecast period. In addition, widespread application of glassine paper, which is resistant to water and grease, as a protection to food including meat and baked products is further fuelling the market growth.
Developed economies are inclining toward polyethylene terephthalate packaging owing to its property of multi-layer protection. This offers longer shelf life and sustainability to products as compared to specialty paper. In addition, regulatory authorities are focusing on overcoming deforestation and carbon emissions. Reduced tree cutting will directly impact the availability of wood for specialty paper production. The aforementioned factors are estimated to restrain market growth during the forecast period.
