Avery Dennison at Label Summit Latin America 2018

Last month, Avery Dennison participated in the Label Summit Latin America 2018 in Guadalajara, as Gold Sponsors.

Mexico's unique and exciting market make it an important country for the Label industry in Latin America. At Avery Dennison, besides supplying Pressure Sensitive materials for a number of the country’s most important brands and customers, we strive to add value and create positive change in the whole value chain. One way we do so is participating in important events and updating the industry on the latest trends and technologies.

Last month, in Guadalajara, we participated in the Label Summit Latin America 2018, as Gold Sponsors, where I had the opportunity to do the opening speech and share our perspective about the most relevant future trends of our segment.

One of the trends I would like to highlight is the rapid increase of Intelligent labels. According to IDTechEx Surveys, in 2018, the ecosystem is set to reach approximately $12 billion and by 2020 it is expected that over $30 billion RFID tags will be sold annually. Retail apparel continues to be the largest segment, but we are seeing additional growth coming from new segments including healthcare, fresh food and aviation. This is such a relevant topic that my colleague Julie Vargas, Digital Solutions Director, dedicated her session in the event to the Digital Consumer and the great benefits that comes with the use of intelligent labels/RFID. She presented several examples where RFID technology increased the efficiency of inventories and improved the consumer's shopping experience.

Global trends that impact regionally and generate new business for our customers and brand owners. We’ve seen global brands looking more and more for solutions to support them to reach their sustainable objectives in short and medium term and we were glad to share new technologies such as CleanFlakeTM, a pressure sensitive material that allow PET bottles labelled with this product to be removed during PET bottles recycling processes and allowing the PET flakes to return as Food grade resin to the PET bottle manufacturers. We were happy to promote our portfolio with FSC® certification (FSC-C107100) to show our commitment to responsibly source materials. We offer hundreds of label options made with Forest Stewardship Council®- certified paper and film made from renewable resources.

It’s truly an honor to participate, once again, in Label Summit Latin America and have the chance to be closer to our customers and present our launches and latest innovations. I’m really proud of our team for all we’ve accomplished during this year’s event.
