Label Summit Africa 2012 will focus on the growing African label and package printing market and will take the form of a conference and table-top exhibition. The rapid growth of supermarkets (by both local and international chains) in Africa is providing plenty of opportunities for the label and package printing industry. This is aided by legislation aimed at improving standards, for example on environmental packaging. The South African market is showing strong growth, with competition taking place in the pressure-sensitive and sleeve segments. South Africa shows a higher market share of sleeve labels - 14% versus 9% in the rest of the world.
