Report Highlights

The global market for industrial inkjet printing hardware and consumables was valued at $1.5 billion in 2011 and $1.9 billion in 2012. By 2017, the market is projected to approach $7.4 billion after increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30.8% since 2012.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for emerging inkjet printing technologies and applications, with a focus on those that have the potential to be disruptive, not just incremental improvements or refinements of existing (e.g., consumer inkjet) technologies.
  • Definitions of enabling technologies, such as microfluidics, nanotechnology, and others; technology segments, such as print heads, inks and other fluids.
  • Discussion of the issues involved in print head technology, such as fabrication, design considerations, and performance parameters.
  • Patent analyses.

Report Scope

The report addresses trends in inkjet technology and the global market for the most promising new inkjet applications during the period from 2011 through 2017, including:

  • Product decoration (fabrics, ceramics, glass, foods, etc.).
  • Flavorings and fragrances.
  • Electronics.
  • Medicine and life sciences.
  • Chemicals.
  • 3D printing.
  • Optics.
  • Energy.

The study does not cover traditional inkjet printing applications such as consumer- and graphic arts-oriented inkjet printers in any detail.  The market for these technologies is covered in another recent BCC Research report, SMC036D Microfluidics: Technologies and Global Markets, to which the reader is referred for more information.

The study format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary
  • Overview (i.e., definitions, brief history, technology characteristics, applications, market summary).
  • Developments in inkjet technology that are expected to influence the market through 2017.
  • Detailed market estimates and projections for each technology and application, during the period from 2011 to 2017.
  • General assessment of expected technological and market trends in the longer term.
  • Descriptions of key players in the inkjet industry.
