Printed electronics is a collection of methods used during the creation of electrical devices on diversified substrates. A range of technologies are used
to print on the substrates, such as screen printing, flexography, offset, inkjet, and gravure. Printing equipment for printed technologies plays a crucial
role in developing new technologies for the market. A few years ago, bleak predictions were made with regard to the growth prospects of the global printing
equipment for printed electronics market. However, studies have shown that the global printing equipment for printed electronics market has strong growth prospects in
the next few years. According to latest market research reports, the market is likely to reach a value of US$15.57 billion by the end of 2025.
Screen Printing Process Leads Global Printing Equipment for Printed Electronics Market
With regard to the technology used, the global printing equipment for printed electronics market can be segmented into the segments of screen printing,
inkjet printing, gravure and offset printing, flexo and offset printing, transfer printing, coating systems, and embossing/nano imprinting. Of the
different technologies employed in the printing process, screen printing leads the global market. However, the increasing use of inkjet printing and the
high volume of production registered by the flexo and gravure printing market have indicated an upcoming paradigm shift in the product hierarchy in the
On the basis of geography, the global market for printing equipment for printed electronics can be segmented into the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Rest of
the World. New printing technologies have found a strong market in Europe owing to bolstered government investment in the manufacturing sector to propel
the production of new equipment. In America, however, the printing equipment for printed electronics market is finding it hard to penetrate owing to
stringent regulations implemented by the government. Asia has emerged as a lucrative market for printing equipments for printed electronics in the past few
Boost in R&D Investment to Help Manufacturers Capitalize on Future Growth Prospects
People nowadays prefer communication of information electronically rather than relying on printing equipments. This has raised a survival crisis for the
leading market players in the printing equipment for printed electronics market. However, as an antidote to their market woes vendors significantly
increased their R&D expenditure so that they could gradually shift their focus to new and innovative printing equipments, designed to especially to
capitalize on the incumbent market opportunities.
Some of the leading players in the printing equipment for printed electronics market are Fujifilm Dimatix, Harpwer Corporation, Ever Bright Printing
Machine Fty. Ltd., A&M Kinzel Siebdruckmaschinen Ltd., Dynamesh, Bobst Group, and KIWO. Of these, &M Kinzel Siebdruckmaschinen Ltd is the largest
supplier of screen printing equipment in the market, while Fujifilm leads the market for inkjet printing equipment.
