As per Technavio, the increasing use of specialty thermal papers will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other significant trends and market drivers that will influence market growth over 2020-2024.

Specialty Paper Market: Increasing Use of Specialty Thermal Papers

Thermal paper changes color when exposed to heat, as it is coated with chemicals. This property of thermal paper enables inkless printing. Furthermore, thermal printers are small, less noisy, and have a low cost of ownership and low maintenance cost. Therefore, thermal printing is gaining popularity across many sectors such as retail and healthcare. In the retail sector, thermal paper is used as a point-of-sales receipt given out in supermarkets, hypermarkets, departmental stores, specialty stores, and drugstores. Thermal specialty papers have higher thickness (between 60 and 80 microns) than regular paper (around 50 microns). Therefore, thermal papers are more durable and are widely used as point-of-sales receipts. In addition, thermal papers are also used in automated teller machines (ATM) as transaction receipts. Thus, the increase in use of specialty thermal papers will drive market growth.

“Factors such as the increasing use of MFCs, advent of smart packaging , and the increasing strategic alliances will have a positive impact on the growth of the specialty paper market value during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
