Market Segmentation

"Continuous Feed Inkjet to Emerge as Most Sought After Technology"

The manufacturers of the continuous feed inkjet print heads have been providing inkjet print heads with faster printing speed and reduced the running cost for digital printing. Digital inkjet (DI) presses generate offset–quality printing on short-run jobs, making a wider range of products more affordable for the customers. This allows for quick turn job delivery due to DI’s digital PDF–driven workflow and seamless integration with prepress software. This makes even ultra-short production runs cost-effectively when the latest digital print technologies are used. Inkjet technology printers with continuous feed offer opportunities to right-size run lengths in printing books and magazines to virtually any page count, reducing waste and associated costs when compared with offset. The continuous feed segment is estimated to exhibit faster growth rate than the cut sheet during 2018-2025.
