Inkjet Printing Technologies Paving its Way to Other Industries; Projected to Grow at 24.1% CAGR

January 19, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., January 19, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on inkjet technologies, that although inkjet printing is beginning to have an impact on various types of applications, such as food flavorings and fragrances, chemicals, and optics, the demand for inkjet hardware and consumables in these segments is too small to estimate reliably and is likely to have little impact on overall sales between 2013 and 2019.

The worldwide market for industrial inkjet printing hardware and consumables was at about $2.5 billion in 2013 and just over $3billion in 2014.  By 2019, the market is projected to exceed $8.8 billion, with a 24.1% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

The industrial inkjet market comprises product decoration, electronics, medicine and life sciences, 3D printing and energy. Product decoration (textiles, ceramics, glass, wall and floor coverings, food, etc.) account for the bulk (around 79% in 2013 and 72% in 2019) of the industrial inkjet market.  Electronics are the second-largest segment, with 11% the market in 2013 and 18% in 2019. 3D printing is the third-largest segment, with a 9% market share in 2013 and 6% in 2019.

“Although the term 'inkjet printing' reflects the earliest commercial applications of inkjet technology used in computer peripherals that produced hard copy of digital content on paper, it is now used in a growing number of applications that have little to do with printing or the graphic arts, such as the production of electronic devices or bioarrays,” says BCC Research analyst Andrew McWilliams.

Emerging Inkjet Printing Technologies, Applications and Global Markets analyzes the key drivers and constraints that will shape the market for the inkjet printing applications as the basis for projecting demand from 2013 to 2019.
