Release Liners Market 

The release liners market is projected to register a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, 2018-2023. The major factors driving the growth of the release liners market are the growing demand for clean labels in food & beverage industry and the rapidly increasing automotive production.

Rapidly Increasing Automotive Production - Driving the Demand

Release liners find their applications during the production of automotive components, such as dashboards and bumpers. They protect the adhesive and sealant prior to their assembly on the finished component in the automotive industry. Different types of release liners, such as (both one-side and two-side coated) poly-coated, Glassine, Super calendered Kraft paper etc. are used in the automotive industry.

Owing to the increasing consumer focus on fuel efficiencies and environmental awareness around the world, many automotive manufacturers are giving emphasis to produce lightweight vehicles. The overall weight of a motor vehicle can be decreased by replacing mechanical fasteners with adhesives without change in performance. Adhesives improve stress distribution and expand the choices of composites and dissimilar substrates throughout the vehicle.  Furthermore, the increasing usage of plastics and ceramics in the automotive is increasing the usage of adhesives. This in turn is expected to increase the consumption of release liners in the automotive industry in near future.

Labels Segment to Grow at a Healthy Rate

In terms of consumption, Labels is the largest segment by application, in the global release liners market, as of 2017. The growing demand from packaged foods is expected to be the key driver for the release liners used for labels. Another driving factor is the expanding retail outlets in emerging countries around the world, which is growing the need for release liners in labelling applications. Pressure-sensitive labels are the largest in use currently, and are expected to find increasing applications in different end-user industries.
