Press Releases

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Digital Printing Packaging Market by Flexible Plastic 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global digital printing packaging market by flexible plastic: DuPont, Cenveo, Flint, HP, and Xerox.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Anglia Labels, Dainippon Screen Group, EC Labels, Edwards Label, Graphix Labels & Packaging, INX International, Kodak, and WS Packaging Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Rapid growth of digital printing of flexible plastics over analog printing. Digital printing of flexible plastic is growing rapidly, despite the challenges. The market shows a tremendous growth of nearly 37% within a gap of 15 years. This growth is expected to project to around 26% for another five years. ”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Cost-effectiveness of TTP over analog hot stamp printing. The analog substitute for digital TTP in flexible plastic printing is hot stamp printing. Both hot stamp and TTP are meant to transfer ink from a ribbon to flexible plastic substances. But, TTP has a lot of advantages in operation and cost.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market isLow quality of printing compared with analog printing. Despite many advantages in digital printing of flexible plastic such as faster printing, low cost, easy proof approval, and others, it lacks in terms of quality of printing.
