The hottest innovation in the development of label

Innovation in the development of the label industry in Asia

with the gradual disappearance of the old traditions of Asian countries, a new generation of new lifestyles is replacing them. In 2016, we once again encountered the liquidation crisis caused by environmental pollution. Consumers and government officials have higher and higher requirements for the hygiene of products, and almost all products need packaging. This has brought innovation to the label industry in Asia

development status

there are two reasons for the vigorous development of the label industry in Asia: the growth of Asian consumers who buy labeled products, and the increase of labeling requirements of western countries for products imported from Asia

according to statistics, the total number of printing plants in Asia is about 5000. The conditions of printing houses in different Asian countries compete for the label market are very different. Japan has the largest number of printing plants in Asia, with about 1800 domestic printing plants, many of which are small-scale and family operated

China currently occupies a leading position in the development of the label industry. According to the test of channeled resource, a paper film supplier in Chicago, the United States, it is characterized by a single pin of the connector and plastic retention; Connector single hole plugging test; According to the president of ces/maratech, which connects the whole row plug-in experiment and connector plug-in life experiment machine, "the growth rate of China's label industry is not less than 10%." This growth is more akin to a quantitative explosion. Especially in the field where there is no lack of special technology, such as cigarette box labels, in order to prevent counterfeiting, hot stamping is used, and holograms and copies are included. Tler Sigri can manage a large number of complex pattern designs using miscellaneous materials

the sharp increase of China's label industry is quite cost attractive to Japan: China's labor cost is 10 times cheaper than Japan. And it has a large number of domestic consumer demand. Due to the abundant resources and whether the tubing joints are loose and low production costs, China is bound to continue this growth momentum

the development of label industry in Asia makes education important, and many suppliers have realized this. Last February, Avery Dennison set up a self-adhesive label processing center in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province to provide the latest technology in self-adhesive label printing and processing. More than 400 trainees have participated in the center

among Southeast Asian countries such as China, the largest processors in the label industry are mainly from the United States or Europe. The specific requirements of many Asian countries are not much different from those of western countries, so the quality standards of products are basically consistent with those of the United States and Europe. After gradually mastering the difficult printing process, perhaps after the birth of new equipment, the Asian processing chamber of Commerce gave western countries a surprise

printing technology

due to the tireless promotion of many overseas enterprises, the production capacity of Asian printing industry has been greatly improved. The upgrading of equipment has promoted the innovation of printing methods, and the label industry is making progress

however, at the same time, flexographic printing, which is very popular in the label printing industry in the United States, has begun to take root in Asian countries, but has not been widely adopted at present. There are many speculations about why flexo printing was snubbed in Asia. According to the analysis of insiders, it is mainly due to traditional habits and the surrounding environment

for example, in China, flexographic printing is not as convenient as relief printing, because its printing plate production is very problematic, high cost, time-consuming, and does not have any industry that needs a stable supply network

in fact, due to the imperfect supply chain, UV flexo printing technology has been stopped or slowed down in some parts of Asia. Some insiders believe that in order to accelerate the development of flexo printing and UV flexo printing, Asia must establish supporting flexo printing facilities and consumables

in addition, the batch of products is also the only reason that hinders the development of flexo printing. In Japan, letterpress is used for 80% of printing processing, because the order of labels is usually small, and flexo printing is more suitable for processing large quantities of orders

flexo printing prospects

people's interest in flexo printing is slowly increasing, but due to different needs, this increase is difficult. At present, the conditions of flexo printing in most Asian countries are not mature, but the future development prospects are optimistic

experts believe that the label industry must control the production cost of the whole flexographic label. Once the cost decreases, flexographic labels will have the opportunity to develop significantly. Pressure sensitive material suppliers such as Allie Dennison and Lantai have also entered China and other Asian countries, which will further help reduce the cost of label printing
