The global release liners market is projected to reach USD 93.02 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2017 to 2022. Release liners are used on a sticky surface to prevent premature adhering. These liners are coated with a release agent on one or both sides which prevent them from bonding with the material. Release liners are used in labels, pressure-sensitive tapes, hygiene, medical, graphics and industrial application segments. This growth of these applications drives the release liners market, globally.

In 2016, the labels application segment accounted for the largest share of the global release liners market and is expected to continue to lead during the forecast period. Release liners are used in the labels industry as a carrier of the label laminate during printing and converting.

Based on substrate type, the films segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Films release liners that exhibit superior properties over other substrate types, including superior caliper control and is suitable for high speed dispensing applications. Film release liners provide high subsequent adhesive rate and stable release performance. These properties are expected to drive this segment during the forecast period.

Release Liners Market

Growth in the packaging and labeling industries has led to an increase in the demand for release liners. In 2016, the Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global release liners market. China is estimated to account for the largest share of the Asia Pacific release liners market in 2017, whereas, this market in India is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Due to the growing concern over the waste produced by the release liners, manufacturers are adopting the liner less technology to manufacture labels and tapes. This technology eliminates the waste and reduces the cost associated with label manufacturing. This can act as a restraint to the growth of the market.

Companies have adopted strategies such as new product developments, expansions, and mergers & acquisitions to enhance their market shares and widen their distribution networks in the global release liners market. These companies engage in research & development activities to innovate and develop products that can open new avenues of applications. For instance, the 3M Company launched 3M Scotchpak 9709 Release Liner. Scotchpak 9709 is coated on one side with a proprietary 3M fluorosilicone that provides release from most pressure sensitive adhesives, including silicone, acrylic and polyisobutylene (PIB).

Similarly, Mondi Group acquired Uralplastic (Russia), which manufactures consumer packaging products for food, hygiene, homecare, and other applications. Through this acquisition, the company aims to strengthen its position in the Russian release liners market.
