Impact of COVID-19 on global digital printing

COVID-19 brought down the growth level of the market in 2020, and the market is estimated to grow relatively slowly till the end of 2021. COVID-19 brought down all companies and industries including the domain digital printing. As the world slowly recovers, the way of doing business will never be the same. COVID-19 has changed market dynamics for all businesses in general. Although cutting-edge technology has played a vital role in our working lives for years, it has never relied on things like video conferencing and interacting with team members. Although business printers are used less, this will likely lead to an increase in the number of home printers purchased for consumers working from home. Printing is essential if someone needs to make hard copies of crucial documents. Alternatively, the COVID-19 pandemic has improved the demand for flexible packaging, which is considered more hygienic due to limited handling.

Global digital printing market dynamics

Drivers: developments and growing demand in the packaging and textile industries

The packaging of a product plays a vital role in marketing as it gives information about the quality and level of the product. Thus, manufacturers are looking for more attractive product packaging so that they can sell them quickly in the market. With the help of high quality graphics on substrates such as textiles, plastic films, release liners etc., packaging can be made attractive, and this can be done using digital printers as they offer benefits such as UV-curable printing, as well as much better detail, clarity and quality than their smaller counterparts. The textile industry anticipates a range of designs and colors with a rapidly changing market. However, conventional printing methods cannot meet today’s requirements. Inkjet printing technology, which was first developed for printing documents, is now gradually being used in the textile printing industry as it meets the needs of the fashion industry, accelerating thus market growth.

Constraints: strict government regulations and strong competition

The major challenges in the digital printing market are increasing competition and stringent government regulations on environmental safety are major impediments for market expansion. In many cases, disposal of ink and e-waste has hampered the market growth, which is expected during the forecast period. Lack of a proper standardization system and unfavorable tax policies of various governments are also hampering the growth of the market.

Opportunities: Growing e-commerce division

Digital printing is used in several e-commerce products and the development of the e-commerce industry will therefore drive the growth of the digital printing market. In the global scenario, e-commerce is the widely preferred retail format, especially among young customers who are inclined to shop online through their devices. M-commerce and e-commerce have rapidly increased across the world, which has increased the need for e-commerce packaging. Suppliers operating in the local market align their activities with the current market outlook. They bring more and more significant and reinforced innovations in the quality of the packaging of their products to meet consumer expectations. The growth of e-commerce is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market over the forecast period.

Inkjet segment, by printhead type, accounts for the largest market share

The global digital printing market has been segmented into inkjet and laser. In 2020, the inkjet segment accounted for the largest market share of 64.51% in the global digital printing market. For home printing, an inkjet printer is a common choice. They create images by spraying thousands of microscopic ink droplets onto paper with precision, much like television and computer screens render images with thousands of pixels. Yellow, magenta and cyan ink cartridges are the most common. The printer can mix these three fundamental colors to create all the colors required for the print job. A component known as the print head rotates back and forth as paper is fed through a pair of rollers, spraying ink precisely. Although this method is much less complicated than laser printing, it is more prone to smudging.

Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on regions, the global digital printing market has been segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa. Globally, Asia-Pacific is estimated to hold the highest CAGR of 8.81% in the global digital printing market during the forecast period. The region includes countries such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Southeast Asia and the rest of Asia-Pacific. The growth of the region is mainly due to the strong economic growth of emerging national countries such as China, Indonesia, Malaysia and India.
