Current situation and Prospect of the global industrial inkjet printing market

as a branch of digital printing technology, which selects different experimental machines according to different customer needs, inkjet printing has developed rapidly since 2008 and has become one of the most concerned and potential emerging printing methods in the printing market. Taking drupa2008 as the starting point, in order to seize the opportunity of the development of inkjet printing, domestic and foreign enterprises have increased their product research and development and promotion efforts in this field. In China, enterprises represented by founder of Peking University have also made great progress in the research and development of inkjet printing equipment. However, due to the core technology of inkjet printing, the manufacturing process of inkjet print head is monopolized by a few foreign companies, China's inkjet equipment manufacturing enterprises generally face the problems of insufficient development momentum and weak competitiveness caused by the lack of core technology. Based on the market prospect of inkjet printing technology at home and abroad, this paper analyzes the current situation and trend of inkjet print head Market in China. It should be noted that in order to distinguish from inkjet printing, this paper mainly discusses industrial inkjet printing and the corresponding print head market

I. development history and prospects of the global industrial inkjet printing market

1 The development process of inkjet printing technology

inkjet printing technology first appeared in the 1960s. To the mid-1980s, with the gradual maturity of the technology, the first commercial inkjet printer was officially born. However, due to the limitations of speed and quality, for a long time, inkjet printing technology was mainly used in the form of inkjet printers in the office and household fields, and the application space in the industrial field was limited. Later, with the birth of inkjet printer, inkjet printing technology began to be applied to outdoor advertising production, and gradually gained a place in the industrial application market, but it has not yet entered the mainstream printing market to improve the deep processing rate of materials and the conversion rate of integrated devices

drupa2008 marks the official entry of inkjet printing technology into the mainstream printing market. At this exhibition, dozens of enterprises represented by HP, Kodak, Agfa and founder of Peking University exhibited their ink-jet printing machine products. Therefore, this exhibition is also called ink-jet drupa. Since then, inkjet printing technology, which was originally labeled as low-quality and low-speed, has officially entered the vision of the mainstream printing market, and has gradually become one of the most potential printing methods with rapid improvement in quality and speed, sample preparation and wide market adaptability

2. Main application fields of industrial inkjet printing

① outdoor advertising: outdoor advertising inkjet printing is one of the earliest industrial fields that inkjet printing technology has entered. Compared with other fields, outdoor advertising has low requirements for printing accuracy and speed, so inkjet printing was adopted earlier. At present, the market of outdoor advertising spray painting has been very mature, and with the continuous improvement of global urbanization, the market scale continues to show an upward trend

② ceramic inkjet printing: the application of inkjet printing technology in the field of ceramics has shown a rapid growth trend in the past decade, and there are 10 large plastic markets. For traditional processing technology, inkjet printing technology provides ceramic production with a choice of lower cost and higher quality. At the same time, it can make products more creative and meet the personalized needs of customers. According to the statistics of ceramicworldreview, there are about 9000 ceramic production lines in the world, about half of which are in China
