A Bright Future for Colour Inkjet Digital Printing in Global Labels and Packaging Markets: The State of the Industry in 2018 with Forecasts to 2023 (Volume I & II) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "A Bright Future for Colour Inkjet Digital Printing in Global Labels and Packaging Markets: The State of the Industry in 2018 with Forecasts to 2023 (Volume I & II)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Colour digital printing is well on the way to being a highly disruptive force, first for labels and more recently in several segments of the much larger packaging industry.

Over the last decade, this multi-facetted & complex industry has transformed dramatically with major advances in colour inkjet digital press design & print head technology, as well as developments in substrate materials & inks formulations.

Colour digital printing for labels & packaging are in a strong ascendancy in 2018 and have been for several years already.

In addition to the inkjet press building industry, there are major implications for the digital consumables providers in terms of the evolution of demand for consumables. There will be major growth in opportunities for providers of digitally compatible substrate materials & digital inks, which will take market share from non-compatible consumables over the next few years.

The cost of consumables is a critical factor and needs to be driven down further - A substantial amount of development work is going on in this area.

The growth of colour inkjet digital printing across the labels/packaging industries, already seeing double-digit growth, will actually speed up through to 2023 and beyond as the relentless roll-out of colour inkjet printing of labels & packaging, particularly for the very fast emerging industrial scale high volume colour inkjet.

As the demand for mass versioning and customization of labels & packaging continues to grow, colour digital printing is becoming an increasingly vital component part of labels & packaging converter's capabilities.

The main focus of the report is on automated high-volume/high-speed industrial scale applications for colour inkjet digital printing & presses which will account for the bulk of demand for consumables (substrate materials & inks).

The report can potentially be of great value to:

  • Labels & Packaging converters
  • Systems Integrators & Press Builders (OEMs/Independents)
  • Press builders - Both digital and digital/analogue hybrid presses
  • Print Head Providers
  • Consumables providers
  • - Substrate Materials
  • - Digital Inks.
  • Brand owners.

The stakes are high and clarity is needed for today & tomorrow - And this can be challenging for the industry in the face of a very rapidly evolving industry environment.

This report can provide support to companies needing to make informed & wise strategic decisions in relation to the new World of colour inkjet digital for the immediate term and for the future.

This report explores in depth the dynamic and continuing rise of Colour inkjet digital printing in global Labels & Packaging markets.
