Coding and marking equipment: global demand grows


More industries are moving from conventional printing to digital printing. According to recent research by Future Market Insights[1], global demand for coding and marking equipment is forecast to grow over the next 10 years – resulting in a 1.7 x increase in revenue between 2017 to 2027. The value of this market in 2027 is projected to reach more than USD 1.7 billion.

The largest growth segment in this market, in terms of market value, is continuous inkjet printing (CIJ) equipment.

Why CIJ?

This technology prints digital images by expelling droplets of ink onto various substrates. Many manufacturers prefer this coding and marking technique because it is a non-impact process, which allows millions of characters to be printed using just a litre of ink.

The ink used by CIJ printers is also quick-drying, which means that no time is wasted during the coding and marking process. CIJ is therefore both efficient and cost-effective.

At the same time, this non-contact printing method allows for high-speed, precision printing onto a variety of shapes and substrates, which provides a great return on the hardware investment.
