Digital Printing Market Trends



  • Surge in demand for sustainable printing


The widespread adoption of digital printing has transformed the way businesses and commercial organizations build assets. With the advent of digital printing, designers now have nearly limitless design options. Organizations have been able to use their creativity to create truly original and useful products by eschewing the typical designs constrained by conventional printing plates. As people and companies try to minimize their environmental impact, sustainable printing techniques are growing in popularity. Due to technological advancements, print vendors may now produce quality-unaffected, sustainably printed materials.


Additionally, digital printing can be done without using a printing plate. Compared to more traditional techniques that require a plate, this procedure generates a lot less waste because the ink lies on the top layer of the substrate. For shorter print runs, digital printing is fantastic. The ability to print digitally more quickly than with other technologies thanks to the absence of a plate is another advantage. A machine may print up to 4,800 sheets per hour once printing has started. Digital printing is a very economical technique to utilize if businesses only need a modest quantity of prints.


Digital Printing Market Covid Impact


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial negative influence on the expansion of the worldwide digital printing market. The dynamics of the digital printing industry were changed by the outbreak. Due to sudden shutdown restrictions everywhere in the world, the digital printing sector was forced to shift its attention to online transactions and techniques. This caused an initial fall in the sector, which is anticipated to level off as e-commerce gains more and more popularity.


Digital Printing Market Russia-Ukraine War Impact


Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing effects of the pandemic had a negative and unclear impact on the world economy. Many of the downside risks mentioned in April World Economic Outlook have started to manifest. The world's financial conditions have become more rigid due to higher-than-expected inflation, particularly in the United States and major European nations. With COVID-19 outbreaks and lockdowns, China's recession has been greater than expected, and the conflict in Ukraine has had further detrimental effects.


Digital Printing Segment Insights:


Digital Printing Type Insights


The Digital Printing segmentation, based on type, includes inkjet and laser. In terms of Digital Printing model revenue, the inkjet segment held the largest market share in 2022, owing to its greater tonal variation and superior color blending capacity. The dominance of inkjet print heads is explained by the fact that inkjet printers only make up 5% of the market for computer peripherals.


April 2022 Canon Production Printing and Canon Inc. announce the acquisition of Edale, a UK-based packaging converting equipment manufacturer, with the goal of strengthening Canon's label and package business and nurturing future growth opportunities. Canon is advancing its long-term strategy to provide completely integrated solutions for the label and packaging industries by making this acquisition.


Digital Printing Ink Type Insights


The digital printing segmentation, based on ink type, includes aqueous, solvent, UV-curable, dye sublimation, latex, and others. The UV-cured ink segment is expected to provide the most revenue in 2021. An ink that cures when exposed to UV light is known as UV ink. The majority of the vehicles in these inks consists of monomers and initiators. The ink is applied to a surface and then exposed to UV light, which causes the release of highly reactive atoms from the initiators, causing the monomers to swiftly polymerize and the ink to solidify into a film. Nearly all of the ink is usable to create the film because UV curing does not require sections of the ink to evaporate or be removed. The total amount of ink used has decreased, lowering the cost of printing as a whole. Environmental friendliness is also another benefit of UV inks.


May 2022, Hewlett-Packard announced the launch of two new digital press platforms, HP Indigo 100K Digital Press and HP Indigo 15K Digital Press, at Print Pack India 2022. The HP Indigo 100K Digital Press shortens turnaround times, boosts automation in printing, and lowers plate, labour, and handling costs for printers who produce a medium to high volume of short runs. With extra possibilities up to 600 microns, FM screens, and a greater variety of substrates, the HP Indigo 15K Digital Press is outfitted (24 pt.).


Digital Printing Application Insights


The Digital Printing segmentation, based on application, has been bifurcated into the categories of texting, commercial printing, packaging, paper/books and others. In 2021, the packaging segment accounted for the most market revenue. In order to save time and money, digital printing is frequently used in packaging. Digital printers are perfect for smaller order quantities because they need very little work and have a far lower setup cost. Furthermore, digital printing is perfect for minimalist packaging designs because it gives a high-quality result for simpler artwork.


September 2022 - Westrock Company purchased the HP PageWide T1190 inkjet digital press. The company's current offset litho, flexo preprint, flexo direct print, and sheet-fed digital printing activities will be complemented by the digital press across its corrugated box plants and specialty facilities.

During the projected period, The Asia Pacific market is predicted to develop at the fastest CAGR due to increased demand for digital printing across numerous business verticals. The Chinese printing sector is paying attention to new data-driven business models, digital platform solutions, and end-to-end digitized value creation chains. Local designers now have access to more than 12,000 carton folding patterns online because of the increased adoption of digital printing. Businesses are purchasing digital presses because there are fewer steps in the printing process.


As a result, the companies will be able to increase their manufacturing capacity by providing finished goods more quickly.
