Digital Printing Market Insights

The global digital printing market will grow from USD 21.12 billion in 2021 to reach USD 43.62 billion in 2026, at a CAGR of 13.72% during the forecast period.

The growing adoption of inkjet and laser printing solutions throughout the paper and packaging sectors due to their flexibility and cost-effectiveness features are some of the major contributors to the global digital printing market's growth. Digital printing is a modern manufacturing process that enables printing from electronic files. Digital printing is the method of printing digital-based images directly onto multiple media substrates. In contrast, to offset printing, digital printing doesn't require a printing plate.

Moreover, the rising usage of artificial intelligence and internet of things technologies, and increasing demand from in-plant are also likely to drive the digital printing scope in future. The other factors supporting the growth of the digital printing trends 2020 are growing usage of digital print in consumer electronics is anticipated to increase the demand for smart thermostats. Increasing demand for sustainable printing solutions in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, packaging, and label industries, as well as demand for cost-effective printing processes, are some of the factors driving the future of the digital printing market during the forecast period.

Digital printing uses mild solvents and less harmful chemicals than traditional printing processes such as offset printing and solid ink printing. As a result, the growing emphasis on green printing and cost-effective production, the printing industry outlook 2020, is seeing an increase in demand for digital printing solutions.

Hence, the rising support from government organizations in the form of research funds to launch digital printing devices and increasing sustainable printing and developments in textile and packaging industries will propel the digital printing market share during the forecast period. Moreover, the rising demand for consumer goods, increasing demand for digital textile printing in the advertising and garment industries are some of the other drivers driving the global digital printing market size during the forecast period.

The emergence of COVID-19 has lowered the market's growth rate in 2020, and the market is expected to expand at a relatively modest pace post-2021. The hard impact of COVID-19 on the printing industry has led to the de-growth of the digital printing market.

Digital Printing Market: By Ink Type

The ink type segment is categorized into UV-cured ink, aqueous ink, solvent ink, latex ink, dye sublimation ink. The UV-cured ink segment is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue from 2021 to 2026. Acrylic monomers with a photoinitiator make up the majority of UV-cured ink. After printing, the ink is subjected to UV light, usually, a shuttered mercury arc lamp, which causes a chemical effect that results in the cross-linking of ink components to a solid. In comparison to solvent-based inks, UV-curable ink has several environmental benefits, such as allowing printers to use ink that is free of toxins, i.e. 100 percent ink, with no waste are expected to boost the digital printing market.

Digital Printing Market: By Printhead

Laser and inkjet are the major printhead segments of the digital printing market. The inkjet printhead is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue from 2021 to 2026. Continuous inkjet print heads or drop-on-demand inkjet printers are the two types of inkjet print heads available in the market. With the help of a pump and a piezoelectric nozzle cycle, a continuous stream of ink is delivered to the print head in a continuous inkjet printer. Ink usage is higher with continuous inkjet printers than with on-demand inkjet printers.

Digital Printing Market: By Region

As per the geographical analysis, the digital printing market can be classified into North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Rest of Asia Pacific), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest of Europe), Middle East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Rest of the Middle East & Africa) and Central & South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Rest of Central and South America).

North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico) region is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue during the forecast period. It is mainly due to the presence of key competitors in the US market, and rising disposable income in the region. Moreover, the growing use of digital printers in textile and packaging printing, and rising demand for packaged foods are some of the factors increasing the digital printing market in the U.S. over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region will grow with the highest CAGR rate in the market. Rapid expansion and growth in numerous end-use verticals such as the packaging industry and textile sector, augment of multifunction printing technology, rising demand for cost-effective printing methods, and increasing R&D investments in the production of garments will impact the digital printing market size in India positively.
