Functional Printing Market Trends




  • A variety of printing technologies is driving the market growth




One of the major factors driving the adoption of functional printing is the growing demand for various low-cost electronic products. Various printing technologies and materials enable organizations to produce products at high speeds and low costs. There is significant progress for the promising future of functional printing, an emerging technology with the potential to enable what is considered the next wave in large-scale electronics manufacturing. Other major factors contributing to the growth of the functional printing market include reduced energy consumption and material waste due to reduced environmental impact due to the manufacturing of electronic devices. However, the limitations of functional electronic inks currently used for functional printing limit the growth of this market.


The first major use of inkjet technology was the production of cost-effective office and graphics printers, which became a multi-billion-dollar market. The proliferation of this technology has led to its expansion into other markets, such as product decoration, flat panel display manufacturing, biochip manufacturing, and printable electronics. This and other applications are essential to ensure the industry's healthy growth.


The use of inkjet printing is growing as it offers significant benefits in various supply chains. The developments presented at Drupa, the world's largest trade fair for printing equipment, are expected to accelerate widespread adoption further. Additionally, as the demand for 3D printing increases, the technology is expected to expand globally. A single-sheet inkjet printer can also improve application cycles and increase page volume. Although this technology exists alongside many other printing technologies, its fast turnaround time, productivity flexibility, variable data printing capabilities, and attractive margins make inkjet printing a popular resource for print service providers and operations. The digital versatility of 3D printing and rapid prototyping enables rapid technology mobilization, enabling rapid response to emergencies. Even if the supply chain is severely disrupted, shared online models can produce critical parts on demand at any decentralized 3D printing facility worldwide. Thus, driving the functional printing market revenue.


Functional Printing Market Segment Insights:


Functional Materials Insights


Based on materials, the Functional Printing Market segmentation includes inks, substrates, printing technology (screen printing, gravure printing, inkjet printing, other printing technologies), and flexography. The inks segment dominated the market, accounting for 42% of market revenue. Ink is important in functional printing, which uses printing technology to create electronic devices, sensors and other components. Functional coatings are special materials that exhibit desired electrical, optical, or mechanical properties, such as conductivity, flexibility, and transparency. The ink and printing method choice depends on the desired application, substrate material and performance characteristics.


Functional Printing Applications Insights


Based on applications, the Functional Printing Market segmentation includes a display, lighting, sensor, photovoltaic, RFID tags, battery, and other applications. The display category generated the most income. Displays are a common component in functional printed applications, especially printed electronics. Functional printing technologies such as inkjet printing, screen printing, and roll-to-roll printing can create lightweight, flexible, and energy-efficient displays. One of the main applications of displays in functional printing is the creation of flexible displays. These displays can be bent and rotated without damaging the device, making them ideal for applications such as wearable electronics, smart packaging and automotive displays. Inkjet printing is often used to create flexible displays because it allows high-resolution printing on various substrates, including plastics, glass and metals.
