Digital Printing is one of the fastest-growing segments of the print-on market, and it’s expected to be the fastest growing segment of the digital printing market by 2020, according to a report from Technomic.
Digital printing is a new type of printed product that’s already gaining traction in many parts of the printing industry, including health care, education and consumer products.
Digital printing is also getting a lot of attention in the pharmaceutical industry, which has recently started using it in the production of pharmaceuticals.
In a recent report, the consultancy research firm said the use of digital printing in healthcare has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic.
“The trend is clear: digital printing has become an important part of the pharmaceutical supply chain,” said Robyn Smith, Technomic’s senior digital media analyst.
“Digital printing now has a real impact on the healthcare industry and we believe that digital printing will continue to expand and change in the coming years.”
The report also predicts that the use by the pharmaceutical and health care industries of digital printers will reach a million customers in 2020, representing an 80% increase from this point last year.
It also predicts a 30% increase in the use in healthcare and a 30%-40% increase for health care products.
“This growth is the result of a combination of factors, including new technology and the emergence of a new class of print-ons,” Smith said.
“For the first time in history, we are seeing a rapid adoption of digital technology for print-to-paper.
Digital technologies such as 3D printers and laser printers have dramatically increased the speed and scale of the process and the accuracy of the product.”
According to Smith, the shift from print-and-send to digital printing is the biggest driver behind the growth in the digital print market.
“Printing, printing and printing again,” she said.
“Digital printing has allowed us to offer a better product, and we expect to continue to offer it for the foreseeable future.
In the coming year, the print market is expected to reach 1 million units, and our projections suggest that by 2020 we expect this number to be a majority of the total market.”
Smith said digital printing’s biggest drivers are threefold: increasing productivity, increased efficiency, and a better understanding of print processes.
“As print productivity has increased and the number of prints has increased, we expect the cost of printing to decline,” she explained.
The use of print on demand technology by healthcare and the use on demand of digital print will continue the rapid growth of print and digital printing.”
