Region :Global | Report ID: FBI107343 | Status : Ongoing



Industrial inkjets printers are devices that are computer controlled and easily printed on paper, plastic, or glass substrates. The basic working includes continuous inkjet printing and drop-on-demand printing, which uses heating elements and piezoelectric devices to control ink flow. In addition, this technology is used to print on ceramics, decorations, steel, electronic components, plastic cards, rolls, sheets, and many more. This inkjet technology serves food & beverages, cosmetics, electrical & electronic components, automotive, packaging, and many more.

These inkjet printers offer more flexibility, durability, low operating costs, and maintenance. Owing to the rising demand for packed food and cosmetic products, e-commerce growth in past years has raised the demand for industrial inkjet printers. At the same time, electronic components supply chain shortage owing to the global pandemic and technical ink spillage problems are the potential concerns of industrial inkjet manufacturers. However, the latest technology integration of Computer Numerically Control (CNC) to technology such as piezoelectric drop printing curated an opportunity for the key players. This technological advancement offers more precision and low ink consumption that help the consumers worry less about ink loading and spillage.

In addition, the rising demand for labeling, batch coding, and advertising solutions has raised the use of drop-on-demand inkjet technology. The major players that operate in the inkjet printing market are Ricoh, Leibinger group, Hitachi Industrial Components & Equipment Group, and many more. For instance, Epson constructed a new manufacturing plant adjacent to the existing factory and consolidated the Precision Core Micro TFP print head production at Akita Epson, and the company aims to maximize efficiency.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Industrial Inkjet Printer Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global supply chain adversely. Many manufacturers have faced supply chain and manufacturing bottlenecks that have disrupted their demand-supply situation badly. Moreover, the downfall of overall industrial manufacturing activities has led to a slow usage of industrial inkjet printers. The drop in demand from consumers and the halt in global shopping activities is also a major reason for the downfall. The industry has raised the demand through post-pandemic and government ease of lockdown restrictions has created the need for effective management of lots and batches in the labeling & shipping industry. In addition, the rise in e-commerce and online ordering has raised the advertising on packages. The usage of Inkjet printing on boxes and products has helped delivery centers to solve supply chain issues effectively and such factors will improve the demand significantly.
