Release Liner Recycling Market Analysis, Segments, Growth and Value Chain 2018-2028


Release Liner recycling is the process commonly used for recycling of release liner waste. Release liner is a paper or film (sheet usually applied in the course of the manufacturing process to protect a sticky surface from premature adhesion). Release liner is coated with a release agent on one or both sides, which inhibits its bonding with any type of sticky material. After fulfilling its role, release liners are dumped as liner waste into the environment. These release liners are landfilled & incinerated as part of the practice of waste management system. Incineration & landfilling waste management practices of release liners are not environmental friendly and thus, this results in the release of various harmful gases.

In order to reduce the carbon footprint, major suppliers are adopting release liner recycling practices. In the commercial market place, there are a handful of companies which have pioneered the release of liner recycling systems. They have their own patented technology & processes for release liner recycling and thus, recycle huge volumes of liner waste. Release liner recycling helps market players to drop down their disposable cost & thus, help them to meet regulatory requirements. Also, adopting release liner recycling processes allows manufacturer to achieve their landfill reduction target. Some of the liner manufacturers have in-house capability for release liner recycling for labels. These companies are using hundred percent recycled label liners products generated through the release liner recycling process. Adoption of novel release liner recycling process helps in enabling circular economy.

Release Liner Recycling Market: Market Dynamics

The release liner recycling process is a one of the novel processes gaining traction in the commercial market space. Currently, release liner recycling practices are in their nascent stage & are expected to witness numerous growth opportunities in near future. Approximately 1-1.5 % of liner waste gets recycled, which creates substantial growth opportunities for the players offering release liner recycling technologies. As the demand for release liner products is expanding owing to the growing industrial & manufacturing industry, demand for effective recycling solutions will further create demand space for release liner recycling market. Developed regions, such as Europe and North America, are expected to impose directives to develop new initiatives to reduce landfill waste, which is expected to fuel the market of release liner recycling. Also, government initiatives to support clean & greener and circular economy will create demand space for novel release liner recycling processes. However, tedious processes in release liner cycling, such as removal of silicon layer & adhesives from waste label liners, increases the overall cost of the release liner recycling process. Likewise, lack of awareness regarding the release liner recycling process might hamper the market growth in short term.
