This type of applicator are used extensively for wraparound labels that cover the body of a container and wall surface. This makes them ideal for use in end user industries like food, beverage and pharmaceutical among others.

  • Automatic hot melt glue labeling machine, that are used for various kinds of material of container and label meet the requirements of users that have variety of the containers. Moreover, these models are cost-effective for mass production requirements.
  • The increase in adoption of hot melt glue labelers is expected to be aided by the introduction of modularization design concepts that make it convenient for users to change the bottles. This enables end users to interchangeably connect cold-glue and hotmelt labelling stations to the main machine as required.
  • Additionally, many players are introducing models that are reducing energy costs and fumes while using hot glue. Futura labeller model was completely redesigned recently to meet the above objectives. The new station introduced by the company has reduced maintenance costs by more than 50%.

Key Market Trends

Application in the Food & Beverage Segments is Expected to Drive the Growth of the Market

  • Food and beverage packaging across the globe must adhere to a very strict set of safety standards. These regulations are also applicable to glues that are used for case and carton sealing and folding, seal tray forming, package labeling, windowing, filters and many other applications.

In 2018 for instance, the export value of drugs and pharmaceuticals of India amounted to more than one trillion rupees. Additionally, China is one of the two largest markets for OTC drugs in the world valued at USD 25 billion (data sourced from Sun Pharma). With cough, cold & allergy segments that have bottled syrup as drugs accounting for a majority of the OTC market this region offers huge opportunities for hot melt glue label applications.
