September 09, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Smart Labels Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global smart labels market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.47% during 2022-2027. Smart labels are responsive electronic devices that are embedded in various products to offer enhanced functionality. These labels enable consumers to access detailed information about the ingredients, manufacturer, and manufacturing date of purchased products. In addition, smart labels are configured with a chip, antenna, and bonded wires that minimize human errors by providing real-time location tracking, automated reading, better traceability, rapid identification, and re-programmability for numerous items.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Smart Labels Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the significant growth in the packaging and e-commerce industries. Smart labels are used to provide detailed information regarding the packages with the help of digital technology and smart devices. They also provide real-time visibility and are useful in eliminating or lowering the number of theft and shoplifting incidents, which are propelling the demand for smart labels. In addition to this, technological advancements, such as the introduction of big data, the internet of things (IoT) and digital printing, have enabled several leading companies to create sensors printed on smart labels at a lower cost than silicon sensors. Besides this, the growing awareness regarding consumer rights and the growing penetration of smartphone applications are also fueling the market growth. Furthermore, governments in various countries are imposing strict measures to disclose product information to the public by necessitating the incorporation of smart labels in products.
