Transparency Market Research cited that the global release liners market is expected to reach $17 billion by the end of 2024. Let’s take a closer look at this market’s dynamics and the right adhesives for it.
Release Liner Demand
While North America holds the largest market share for release liner products, Asia Pacific is expected to see the highest growth in upcoming years. This is due in large part to its new construction activity and increasing domestic demand from food and pharmaceutical markets.
An increasing emphasis on better labeling and improved packaging quality overall is also causing release liner growth. Rising international trade and global population are factors as well.
Release Liner Materials
The majority of release liners are manufactured using paper or plastic films. Coated with a release agent on either one or both sides, which provides a release effect against the adhesive. Common release agents include:
- Crosslinkable silicone
- Materials that have low surface energy
Largely, applications for release liners include pressure sensitive tapes and labels.
