Global Inkjet Heads Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Inkjet Heads are a key component of inkjet printers. They are responsible for spraying the ink onto the paper. The importance of Inkjet Heads is that they produce high quality prints by evenly distributing the ink.

Thermal MEMS Inkjet Heads:

Thermal MEMS inkjet heads, also known as thermal printhead or thermal printer is a device used in digital printing. It uses the principle of thermoplastics to produce images on paper and other media from a computer file. The most important feature of this system is that there are no moving parts making it more reliable and durable than other systems available in the market. Thermal printheads are widely used by large corporations for commercial printing such as labels, invoices, forms etc.

Piezo MEMS Inkjet Heads:

Piezo MEMS (Micro-electro-mechanical Systems) inkjet heads are used in various applications such as printing, scanning, and imaging. These piezo inkjet systems use a print head made up of a array of tiny needles that move over the paper or other printing material to drop the ink. The system works on the principle that when an electric current is applied across these needles they will oscillate back and forth producing dots or lines on the printing material.

Application Insights:

The advertising application segment led the global inkjet heads market in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The rising demand for various types of print advertisements, such as outdoor, indoor posters and billboards, magazine ads, transit ads and commercial advertisements is expected to drive the segment growth.

The textile printing application segment accounted for a share of 15.1% in terms of revenue in 2017 on account of high product adoption across different end-use industries including clothing brands & retailers, fashion houses and textile mills. In addition, growing demand for printed fabrics such as curtains & drapes along with rising consumer preference towards luxury products are anticipated to propel industry expansion over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global inkjet heads market in 2017, owing to the presence of a large number of players and increased adoption of digital printing. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to increasing demand for high-quality printed products such as posters, T-shirts, and other promotional items.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization coupled with increasing government support for promoting manufacturing activities in countries such as China and India. In addition, rising disposable income levels are also expected drive regional growth during the forecast years. Furthermore, growing penetration of major industry participants in countries like Japan has also contributed significantly towards overall revenue generation within this region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for inkjet printers in the commercial segment
  • Rising demand for inkjet printing in the publishing and graphics industry
  • Growing popularity of digital printing technology over traditional printing methods
  • Proliferation of online content and increasing number of e-commerce transactions
  • Technological advancements in inkjet printer design and functionality
