Global Ink Cartridges Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An ink cartridge is a container filled with ink, which is used in an inkjet printer. Ink cartridges come in different colors and sizes.

One-piece Ink Cartridge:

One-piece ink cartridge is a type of printer cartridge that contains only one component, which is the ink. One-piece cartridges are usually cheaper than two-piece cartridges as they do not contain any other parts (such as printhead and nozzles). However, one-pieces have more disadvantages than two pieces; for example, if the head gets clogged with debris or foreign objects then it may prevent printing.

Split Ink Cartridges:

A split ink cartridge is a type of printer cartridge that contains two types of inks, usually black and color. The two inks are separated by an air space and are used to print on different media or paper. It is mostly used for printing on plain paper, cardboards, metals & plastics etc.

Application Insights:

Inkjet printers was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Inkjet printers are widely used at home or office for printing documents, photos, TIFF images, and graphics. Rising demand for ink cartridges in inkjet printers on account of high print resolution is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

The All-in-one machine segment is expected to register a significant CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for multifunctional machines with features such as scanner & copier combination devices that are widely used at home or office. The Latin America region accounted for a major share in 2017 due mainlyto increased penetration of Cartuchos de tinta among other factors such as high income levels and population density which result into higher consumption rates per capita across countries like Brazil China India etc during last few years especially when compared with North America Europe Asia Pacific regions etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global ink cartridges market in 2017 owing to the presence of a large number of manufacturers and suppliers. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period as well. Factors such as high purchasing power, advanced technology usage, and increased demand for quality products are driving this regional market.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions during the forecast period due to increasing product adoption in countries like China, Japan, South Korea & India among others. In addition, growing awareness regarding environmental protection along with rising government initiatives towards ink cartridge recycling are some other factors contributing toward regional growth.            Inkjet printers have been witnessing significant growth in these countries owing to their low cost and easy availability across all segments including small & medium enterprises (SMEs).

Growth Factors:

  • Technological advancements in printing technology
  • Increasing demand for customized printing
  • Rising demand from small and medium businesses
  • Growing popularity of inkjet printers
  • Proliferation of online shopping
