Market Overview:

The global thermal CTP market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for high-quality printing products and the growing trend of digitalization. Thermal CTP is a technology used for producing printing plates, which are then used in offset printing. It offers several advantages over other technologies such as laser engraving and photopolymer plates, including faster turnaround times, improved image quality, and reduced waste production. The global thermal CTP market can be segmented on the basis of type into semi-automatic CTP, fully automatic CTP, and manual CTP. On the basis of application, it can be divided into business applications such as brochures, stationery items; newspaper applications such as magazines and newspapers; packaging applications such as labels and cartons; business / packaging mix applications; and others (including bookbinding).

Global Thermal CTP Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Thermal CTP is a printing technology that uses heat to transfer an image from a computer to a printing plate. The importance of Thermal CTP is that it produces high quality prints and is more environmentally friendly than traditional lithographic printing.

Semi-automatic CTP:

Semi-automatic CTP (SACT) is a technique used to convert manual or semi-manual marking systems into automated ones. It uses optical character recognition technology and a high speed camera for scanning the marked surface and feeds it into an output tray where the printed image is made on standard paper.

The major advantage of using SACT over other thermal transfer technologies such as laser beam melting (LBM) or inkjet printing, etc.

Fully automatic CTP:

Fully automatic CTP is a method of producing high volume, complex and thin-walled microchips with high yield. It uses photoresist technology to create patterns on the wafer and then implants ions during an exposure period. Fully automatic CTP has several benefits such as it can be used for both large scale and small scale semiconductor manufacturing processes, allows flexibility in processing design rules, provides higher throughput rates at lower costs etc.

Application Insights:

The business application segment led the global thermal CTP market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing use of thermal paper for printing cheque books, bank statements, and other banking documents in several industries such as financial services.

The newspaper application segment accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to high demand from various end-use industries such as publishing houses and news agencies across the world. The industry has been witnessing tremendous growth due to increased circulation of newspapers published almost every day which has boosted product demand globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing demand from end-use industries such as packaging, business & packaging, and others. China is one of the major countries contributing toward regional growth owing to presence of numerous manufacturers coupled with low labor cost compared to other regions.

North America also held a significant share in global thermal CTP market due to high demand from U.S., which has emerged as a manufacturing hub for several consumer goods including automobiles, electronics, medical devices among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for thermal CTP plates from the packaging and commercial printing industries due to its superior quality and faster turnaround time as compared to traditional offset printing methods.
  • Rising popularity of digital printing, which is driving the demand for thermal CTP plates as they offer high-quality prints with shorter turnaround times.
  • Growing number of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that are increasingly adopting thermal CTP technology in order to reduce production costs and improve efficiency.
  • Proliferation of online content, especially e-books, which is fueling the demand for high-quality printouts, thereby boosting the market growth for thermal CTP plates.
