Market Update
AWA Global Release Liner Market Review 2016 provides an assessment of the worldwide release liner market, and complements the more detailed regional studies published by AWA that monitor the behavior of individual geographical markets, materials, and end-use segments. The exclusive annual AWA Industry Survey results are also included in this review. These results cover the development of crucial industry topics, e.g. globalization, sustainability, cost and profitability, M&A activity, and growth and expectations.


Market Indicators
In all economies — developed and emerging — release liner volume trends, and the applications which use a release liner, are causally tied to the expansion in the growth related to the numbers of consumers in a region, and industrial output. As a result, economic growth and consumer spending will have an impact on the release liner market and the application areas in which release liners are used. Growth in the release liner market and application areas not only creates growing demand in terms of volumes, but also the need for improvements in technologies and substrate characteristics, as well as process and coating method improvements.


Supply Chain Complexity
Growth in release liner usage is related to a wide variety of applications. This results in increasing complexities in supply chain and distribution characteristics. A broader base of users of release liner, often smaller enterprises, has an impact on inventory management, warehousing, and distribution. An increasingly competitive environment, with intense margin pressures and market dynamics, also has an impact. In-house versus commercial coating also influences volume characteristics in key market segments, while consolidation within coating companies, both in-house and commercial, continues to change the industry dynamics.
