Digital printing is the technique of printing digital-based images directly onto a variety of media substrates. It enables printing from electronic files. It involves printing digital-based images onto photo paper, paper, canvas, synthetics, fabric, cardstock, and other substrates. It does not require the printing plate in comparison to offset printing. It involves using the metal plates to transfer an image and print the image directly onto the media substrate. 

Market Dynamics:

The increasing demand for digital printing drives the market due to its advantages, such as personalized, variable data printing (VDP), print-on-demand, cost-effective short runs, and fast turnarounds. It is the most preferred platform for personalization. Digital printing can easy to modify images and messages using variable data printing (VDP). There is growing adoption of digital printing machines to print everything on thick cardstock, heavyweight papers, and folding cartons to fabric, plastics, and synthetic substrates. Various digital printing inks such as cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) toner and ink, extended color gamut inks such as orange, blue, and green, specialty dry inks are used metallic, white, or clear effects.

The increase in the launch of digital printing machines. For instance, in February 2020, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. had launched a new AccurioPress C14000 series of high-speed toner-based digital presses. The AccurioPress C14000 prints 140 A4 pages per minute (ppm), and the C12000 runs at 120ppm, respectively. Their innovative design demonstrates Konica Minolta’s mission to be a leader in the high-speed toner-based digital production print market.

In January 2020, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. had launched the MGI JETvarnish 3D One, a digital embellishment press that provides sensory print applications for printers of every size.

In September 2014, Xerox India had launched the new Xerox Versant 2100 Press for the production printing industry. The 100 page-per-minute device is versatile for any production environment that combines speed, Ultra HD image quality, and automation features to create colorful personalized communications, collateral, brochures, photo publishing, and specialty print products announced the press release.

Several companies are using digital printing for printing digital-based images onto different substrates. For instance, in January 2019, Tetra Pak had provided digital printing on its carton packages, working in collaboration with Koenig & Bauer, a global leader in the field. Digital printing technology is touted as simplifying the complexity of design handling, reducing the time from design to print, and opening up new opportunities for flexibility in order placement and product customization. It would help the beverage brands take advantage of added benefits like dynamic on-package printing and include various designs within the same order. Digital printing enables the customer to produce customized designs in smaller batches for special campaigns around holidays or other special events.

Segment Analysis

The global digital printing market is segmented on the ink type as aqueous, solvent, UV-curable, latex, and dye sublimation. The aqueous segment accounts for a significant market share of XX% in 2019. Aqueous ink is water-based ink mixed with a colored powder, pigment, or dye. This ink is non-toxic and safe for general domestic and office use. Aqueous ink is the ideal choice for Canvas and paper fine art prints. Aqueous ink is widely used for printing high-quality fine art and photographic printing. It has little or no odor during or after printing.

The solvent segment is expected to witness positive market growth over the forecasted period. Solvent ink is comprised of a volatile organic compound mixed with colored powder or pigment. Solvent ink is useful for plastic prints for outdoor signage and displays. Solvent ink is cheap and much more versatile as it can be easily applied to uncoated substrates.

Further, the market is also classified based on the print head type as inkjet and laser. The laser segment accounts for a significant market share of XX% in 2019. Laser print heads include high-quality text and graphics. There is growing laser printer usage due to their advantages of providing clean, crisp black text and color graphics. Laser printers provide a high-quality print with an infinite set of fonts. These printers are comprised of standard or super-sized cartridges with extraordinary lifespans. Laser printers have the ability to provide favorable outcomes and results even on plain paper. Laser printers have high output speeds in comparison to inkjet printers. It is easy to handle huge workloads by using laser printers. The increasing demand for advanced printing technologies for enhancing productivity and efficiency or the entire workflow shall fuel the market growth.
