A Look At Labeling Trends Over The Next Three To Five Years

Those in the manufacturing and packaging industries know that, today, technology moves almost at the speed of sound. As new machines continue to emerge and technology continues to advance, machinery that is versatile is in high demand - and the same is true with labeling. A report titled "Trends in Labeling" from PMMI, a global leader for resources in processing and packaging, says that customers are anticipating new solutions and guidance from suppliers of labeling equipment due to labeling technologies moving forward at a rapid-fire pace. According to PMMI's director of business intelligence, Paula Feldman, of the companies interviewed for the Trends in Labeling report, 70% are making changes to the processes used in marking and coding, and also in labeling. Feldman says that companies are eager for OEMs and suppliers to assist them in the implementation of these processes so that the changes can be made seamlessly. An article at Food and Beverage Packaging goes on to say that companies in the packaging industry want a machine capable of accommodating various label technologies and materials. Packagers are looking for equipment that is not only easy to install and produces high quality labels, but that offers increased output and is adaptable. Over the next three to five years, the PMMI study reveals that there are six trends in labeling processes that packagers should be on the look out for. These trends include: Increased use of sustainable materials Decreases in label unit costs Reduction in waste of labeling materials Thinner label stock Improved supply chain tracking capabilities Implementation of tactics to reduce counterfeiting and identify tampering At Markem-Imaje, we understand that every company has their own unique objectives and needs; we offer a wide range of products suitable for the needs of manufacturers both small and large.
