  • Detail

At the beginning of September, the 2014 North American international label printing exhibition was held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention and Exhibition Center in Chicago, USA, during which 20 representatives of label printing associations from China, the United States, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, New Zealand and Europe visited the exhibition and held the L9 meeting during the exhibition (see Notes), At the meeting, all member associations also unanimously adopted the sustainable development statement

the exhibition, founded in 1989, is the largest label printing exhibition in the Americas, with 5 pavilions, 440 exhibitors and 14000 visitors. The label printing branch of China printing and equipment industry association organized a delegation to visit and investigate, and learned about the latest development of the global label printing market

Asian market growth leads the world

in 2013, there were more than 25000 label printing production enterprises worldwide, the global label printing market demand was 45billion square meters, and the market sales was US $84 billion, an increase of 3.5% over 2012

Asia is the fourth largest market in the global label printing market, and its growth rate is still ahead of the world. It is the main force of global label growth. The European market ranked second, with a growth rate of 1.9% over last year, and the growth rate of Eastern Europe exceeded that of Western Europe. The North American market ranks third, with a low growth rate of only 0.5%. The United States is the largest label independent market in the world, and the United States and Canada are the pillars of the North American economy. It is worth mentioning that the installed capacity of digital printing machines in Latin America is comparable to that in developed countries

the growth rate of label printing market in South America is 3.2%, lower than the global average. Brazil is the largest market in South America, leading the growth of the South American market. Africa and the Middle East are slightly higher than the global average

the output value of major label countries continued to grow

in this event, the delegation of the label printing branch learned about the latest development of two major label industry countries, New Zealand and Mexico

New Zealand's economy is greatly affected by overseas markets. Australia and China are its largest exporters, accounting for 21% and 17% respectively in 2013, followed by the United States, accounting for 9%, Japan, 8% and South Korea, 3%. China is the country with the fastest export growth, reaching 26% in 2013. Although the whole printing industry in New Zealand is declining, the label printing industry in New Zealand continues to grow, and some traditional printing plants turn to label printing to increase their turnover. New Zealand draws on the experience of Australia to promote the integrated development of large companies. In the past two years, it has been increasing capital investment, and both traditional equipment and digital equipment have been installed

the printing industry is optimistic about the future development of New Zealand. The reconstruction of its second largest city, Christchurch, after the earthquake stimulated the development of manufacturing and service industries, and more than 60% of the central business district is under reconstruction. The export diversion to Asia and the increased regulatory label requirements are bringing good development opportunities to the most comprehensive results of Xinxi export

the Mexican label Association attaches great importance to education, and trains skilled professionals to solve the shortage of labor supply in traditional printing and digital printing in the future. At the beginning of this year, the local association cooperated with a great training organization with a generation of achievements to help enterprises obtain the qualification certification of digital printing, provide a wider range of access qualifications for the industry, and the training work is also proceeding smoothly. To this end, local associations have also played a positive role in promoting the development of local label printing enterprises

Mexico has many experiences in waste recycling and sustainable development, which are worth learning from global label printing peers. They divided recycling into three aspects: first, cement plant incineration; The second is to use the label recycling materials for the production of rubber safety mats; The third is to use label recyclables in the production of insulating materials

in terms of sustainable development, Mexico has the following three experiences. First, they consume 500000 tons of pulp and paper every year, of which 60% - 70% are recycled, which is the highest recovery rate in the world. Secondly, pet release film is collected locally in Mexico and then recycled offshore in other regions. A few face paper and release paper are recycled for recycled paper. Thirdly, most self-adhesive materials imported from Mexico have obtained FSC and PEFC certification

in 2013, there were more than 25000 label printing production enterprises worldwide, with a global label printing market demand of 45billion square meters and a market sales of US $84 billion
