FINAT Labelstock Statistics: Booming second quarter in line with general economic recovery in Europe

After a relatively modest start in 2021, labelstock demand in Europe boomed in the second quarter. Compared to the same quarter of 2020, consumption of self-adhesive label materials in Europe was 9.3% higher. This is all the more remarkable when considering that label demand already peaked in Q2 2020 with an annual growth rate of 8% due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The demand peak in the spring of 2021 correlated with the general economic recovery in Europe as demonstrated by the 13.2% growth of the EU economy compared to Q2 in 2020.
