Press Release

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “In-Mold Labels Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global in-mold labels market size reached US$ 2.9 Billion in 2018. In-mold labels (IMLs) are pre-printed stickers consisting of images and relevant product information. These labels are embedded into the wall of the mold through the techniques of blow molding, thermoforming and injecting molding, followed by the application of heat resistant ink and a coating of lacquer. These labels thus become an undetachable part of the container and provide a seamless finish to the product. These labels are waterproof, transparent, and permanently molded, and find wide applicability across a variety of industry verticals.
