Global Printers Market: Overview
Growing demand for large-format printers from textile and advertising industries
With the rapidly changing fashion industry, textile manufacturers are shifting their focus from analog printing to digital printing as the latter offers numerous benefits, including cost savings and eco-friendliness. This is encouraging market vendors to introduce new large-format printers to cater to the growing demand from the textile industry. Also, the rise in marketing and advertising activities have increased the demand for large-format printers for producing large banners, posters, and signs. Thus, the growing demand for large-format printers from the textile and advertising industries will lead to the expansion of the global printers market at a CAGR of over 2% during the forecast period.
The emergence of ink tank printer
Ink tank printers are gaining momentum in the market due to their high print quality, cost benefits, and high speed of printing. This printer type comes with a dedicated ink tank for each color, such as cyan, yellow, black, and magenta. Ink tank printers use a bulk ink system, which supplies ink continuously to the printer. Although the cost of ink tank printers is high, the low cost per print and low running cost will boost the popularity of these printers among end-users. Moreover, ink tank printers have a longer life cycle and can print a larger number of pages than other printers. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
