The top five players, namely, 3M, UPM Raflatac, Mondi, Eastman Chemical Company, and Avery Dennison Corporation collectively account for the majority market share of around 75%. The global release liners market mostly comprises established tier-1 companies located in the U.S. but with a global network. Asia-Pacific and North America are the growth-centric regions in the market, and global players are focusing on these two regions for business capacity expansions. Industry players are adopting approaches such as acquisitions and expansion to earn maximum revenue and are forming partnerships, considering the high threat of new entrants.
In June 2015, 3M launched its 1250 self-sealing rubber tape, especially for moisture insulation functions. It is an adhesive-free tape in which the roll is provided with a separator between the layers to prevent them from sticking to each other. This offers security for external connections while providing professional termination.
Mondi caters to the entire packaging and paper value chain, from managing forests and producing pulp, paper, and plastic films to developing and manufacturing effective industrial and consumer packaging solutions. The company is organized into four business units—packaging paper, fiber packaging, consumer packaging, and uncoated fine paper. The company has more than 100 production sites across 30 countries with four international business units. The company mainly operates in the European market, specializing in kraft paper, containerboard, corrugated packaging, industrial bags, release liners, extrusion coatings, offset papers, consumer goods packaging, advanced films, and hygiene products components.
UPM Raflatac acquired the assets of Southwest Label Stock, located in Irving, Texas (U.S.), on 7 August 2017. The acquisition allowed UPM Raflatac to expand its business in the Texan and South-Western U.S. label markets by being highly responsive and offering a wide range of high-quality products with fast turnaround.
In 2016, Avery Dennison acquired Mactac’s European business from Platinum Equity, a California-based private equity firm. This acquisition enhanced Avery Dennison’s competitiveness in the high-value graphics market as Mactac’s core product lines were complementary to Avery Dennison’s existing graphics portfolio. The Mactac business expanded Avery Dennison’s global footprint and strengthened its capacity support.
Sappi Limited announced its acquisition of the specialty paper business of Cham Paper Group (CPG) Holding AG for approximately USD 149 million in December 2017. The transaction included the acquisition of CPG’s Carmignano and Condino mills in Italy, their digital imaging business located in Cham, as well as all the brands. The acquisition is expected to strengthen Sappi’s specialty paper business both in Europe and the rest of the world. It is expected to increase profitability and innovative potential within the specialty paper market. The acquisition was made as a significant step toward the company’s Vision 2020 goal.
In July 2015, Loparex Group acquired 100% ownership of the Indian joint venture company Kaygee-Loparex India Private Ltd. The addition of Loparex-India’s manufacturing assets and employees was complimentary to the company’s unique and continuing investment strategy.
