Automotive labels serve the purpose of displaying company name, cost, technical data, component information and other specifications on automobiles.

These labels must withstand high temperatures, as they are required to cope with engine conditions and exposure to liquids such as brake fluid and engine oil.

Growing demand from the automotive industry for RFID labels and mandatory compliance with automotive labelling laws are the main drivers of the automotive labels market.

Newly Emerging markets and new product launches open up new opportunities for growth in the labelling sector. The initial cost of manufacturing is greater if the labels are produced in small quantities, meaning that the cost-to-profit ratio is a concern for small manufacturers.

The automotive labels market is separated into:

  • Asset labels that identify the product with a unique serial number, such as a barcode, QR Code, Data Matrix
  • Dome labels, which are used to print the company logo
  • Branding and warning labels
  • Inventory labels.

Our domed resin labels and domed badges can be either screen or digitally printed in almost any size or shape. The crystal clear polyurethane doming process uniquely transforms self-adhesive labels creating an eye-catching, durable, highly tactile 3-dimensional image.

The doming process provides a quality solution to product branding and identification with emblems suitable for internal and external use and can even be adhered to gentle curves if required. We also offer variable data Domed labels, if required.

Domed labels have many advantages over other labels in that they can be applied to many surfaces (including curved, metal, and plastic), and are scratch-proof, waterproof, salt waterproof, temperature-resistant to 80 C degrees and UV resistant, making them perfect for exterior and interior use in various environmental conditions

After application and curing of the polyurethane resin, the dome label becomes hard and extremely durable.

The automotive markets label application processes is separated by in-mold, heat transfer, glue-applied and pressure-sensitive modalities and its identification methods are hologram, barcode, RFID.

Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest-growing market. It is driven by high automobile sales in India and China. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers and the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, sales of cars in 2016 stood at 28.3 million and three million, respectively.
