The spoil detection – based smart labels are used to detect the freshness of the products, and hence, help into monitoring the product spoilage in real – time. A smart label is a label, which extends the technological functionality beyond the traditional printing methods. These smart labels work in accordance with smart devices (consumer device), like, a smart phone. For example, a smart label is similar to a QR code, which can be scanned through mobile devices and then can be linked to any content like a web page or application. Smart labels have a unique ability that allows the manufacturers to interact with their clients, even after the purchase is done.
The demand for the spoil detection – based smart label market is basically driven by the increase in the demand for the packaged food materials, which need to be quality checked before being consumed. The other driving factor for the market of spoil detection – based smart label is the rise in the adoption of smart packaging, which arises from the changing lifestyles of the current generation.
Moreover, the inclination of huge population towards the hygienic food products, due to the awareness of people over various health benefits, also accounts for one of the reason for the rise in the market of spoil detection – based smart label.
The report analyses the organic food market based on product type, technology, application and geography.
The spoil detection – based smart label market on the basis of their product type indicators used for detecting the quality of the items are segregated into four main types. The time – temperature indicator is a smart label that shows the accumulated time – temperature history of a product. These are specifically used on food, pharmaceutical and various other medical products in order to indicate exposure to excessive temperature. The oxygen indicator, as the name suggests, are the smart labels used to check the lack of oxygen of the product. The carbon dioxide indicator is a smart label that works as a type of pH indictor that shows a colour change whenever the concentration of carbon dioxide in an aqueous solution increases. The pathogen indicator is another type of smart label that is used to detect the presence of any disease causing organisms in the product or solution, whenever present in the same.
The spoil detection – based smart label market, on basis of the technology used for designing the devices, is categorized as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which is used to identify and track tags attached to any objects or items. The technique uses electromagnetic fields; it consists of a tiny radio transponder, a radio receiver and transmitter. It is one of prime method of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC). The sensing labels are usually used to sense the temperature of the products, in order to ensure the quality of those. The near field communication (NFC) is a contact less communication technology based on a radio frequency, which is used to exchange data between two devices through a simple touch gesture. For example, a smart label on a bottle can tell if the bottle is opened or not, and communicate the same to the consumer reviewing the label.
The spoil detection – based smart label market finds its application in various sectors like, food & beverages, where the smart labels let the customers trace about the origin of the various food items; healthcare, where the smart labels help to track and trace every blood sample or any pallet of medication, they are also able to monitor the temperature of heat – sensitive drugs, and son on; cosmetic, and logistics.
Geographically, the spoil detection – based smart label market is studied across the countries of key regions such as, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and rest of the world regions which includes Latin America, and Middle East &Africa. Asia Pacific region is likely to show considerable growth over the forecast period, increasing demand for packaged food products and growing consumer awareness about packaged food safety are expected to dramatically bolster the growth of spoil detection-based smart labels in this region.
