Upturn Forecast for Global Printing Equipment Market

The Business Research Company (TBRC), the London-based market research and intelligence provider, has forecast the growth of the global printing industry through 2026 in its recently published ‘Printing Machinery and Equipment Global Market Report 2022 – Market Size, Trends, and Global Forecast 2022-2026.’

According to the report, the global printing machinery and equipment market sales of printing presses, prepress  and binding equipment is expected to grow from $46.58 billion in 2021 to $76.3 billion in 2026 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2%.

Rapid advances in technology are the main driver of the market. Instant and on-the-go printing is one of the latest innovations shaping the printing machinery and equipment global market outlook. The wireless connectivity in portable printers gives users hassle-free printing by using the relevant smartphone app. The futuristic technology will also encourage the next generation of young users to be more creative and accustomed to using printers with this technology.

In addition, technologies such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and big data analytics are being increasingly applied in the field of manufacturing for higher productivity and lower operating costs which both contribute to higher margins. IoT applications, mobile applications, advanced sensors, and embedded software have all created new opportunities for companies in this market.

Another segment is the global printing market which is expected to witness higher sales of print products including newspapers, books and magazines, labels, business cards, stationery, and other materials.
