The recuperating economy of the U.S. has offered a massive growth opportunity to the market for specialty printing consumables in this country. The construction of new offices and the rejuvenation of older ones, in order to support business activities, have propelled the application of these consumables significantly. Additionally, the rise in demand for digital cameras as well as color laser printing is boosting the adoption of these consumables across the nation. The current trend among U.S. citizens of in-housing printing of photographs is also adding significantly to this growing demand.
Looking forward, the escalating application of these consumables in various printing procedures such as marking of tags and labels, and printing on consumer products, required in supermarkets, hypermarkets, offices, and the packaging industry is expected to boost their demand substantially over the next few years. In 2015, the opportunity in specialty printing consumables valued at US$24.1 bn in the U.S. Rising at a CAGR of 4.40% between 2016 and 2024, it is expected to worth US$35.7 bn by 2024.
On the whole, the opportunity in this market looks rewarding; however, the lack of raw materials, coupled with the stringent regulations regarding their usage, is likely to hamper the adoption of these consumables to some extent in the near future. Apart from this, the rapid advent of electronic media, replacing the concept of paper printing, in this country will also pose a serious threat to the market’s growth over the next few years.
