2 Contents Introduction Component Materials Cost Indices Raw Materials Label Constructions Future Prospects

3 INTRODUCTION Page 3

4 Introduction Industry benchmarking and index analysis of European pressure-sensitive label materials. Started as a project for the Swedish Label Association. Expanded in Q when other national label associations joined Quarterly reporting of a set of indices based on a sample of typical and standard pressure-sensitive label constructions First edition: July 2007, data that quarter plus historical development Indices demonstrate cost progression for each material component based on a scale using a cost index of 100 as of January 2007 The indices reflect movement in raw material costs Also estimate of the likely movement in pressure-sensitive label laminate costs as a consequence of the movements in raw material costs Added feature: indices in local currencies

5 Introduction – Methodology AWA Alexander Watson Associates: market research, advisory services, and events in the labeling and product decoration field since 1971 Key element: primary data collection Telephone, personal and interviews Online survey Target group: key suppliers (film manufacturers, paper producers, adhesive and silicone suppliers, etc) and label laminators Data crosschecked against AWA data on the pressure-sensitive label market All input combined and verified to reach a consensus on costs movement
