Specialty Printing Substrates Market: Introduction

  • Printing substrate is a physical material on which an image is printed. It can be used in various applications. For instance, conventional solvent and eco-solvent printing deliver crisp images with bright colors. However, specialty printing substrates can be used in the most unexpected places such as floors in corporate lobbies and display areas, windows in shops and vehicles, pools and aquariums, and walls.
  • Substrate synthetic paper is a durable and lamination-friendly solution that is engineered to meet many specialty printing applications from waterproof menus and tear-resistant maps to heavy-duty manuals for industrial job sites. Bright silver, clear, and white pressure sensitive papers are resistant to chemicals. These possess excellent bond strength. They have long term adhesion indoors and outdoors, and possess superior surface smoothness and conformability.

Key Drivers of Specialty Printing Substrates Market

  • Rise in demand for sheeting, and digital imaging across the globe is expected to boost the specialty printing substrates market
  • Increase in demand for advanced printing technologies such as 3D printing, hybrid printing, and micro dispensing is likely to boost the demand for specialty printing substrates in various applications such as packaging, publishing, printed electronics, and decorative designing

Different Types of Specialty Printing Substrates

  • Based on type, different types of substrates are available in the market. These include PVC synthetics, polyester, wood, dark and transparent synthetics, pressure sensitive papers, metallized board, and post-consumer waste papers (PCW). Synthetic paper eliminates the need for lamination, and is resistant to water, chemicals, and tears. Synthetic paper can be perforated, laser die-cut, scored, folded, and punched. Rigid vinyl PVC offers excellent durability and is easy to use. It is resistant to UV degradation, good rigidity, and low flammability (resists ignition).

Asia Pacific Expected to Hold Major Share of Global Specialty Printing Substrates Market

  • Geographically, the global specialty printing substrates market can be split across five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is the leading consumer of specialty printing substrates, followed by North America and Europe. Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest global specialty printing substrates market in the near future due to the growth in demand for building and construction, and packaging.
  • Countries such as China and India are also undertaking initiatives to attract major automotive manufacturers to manufacture specialty printing substrates. Specialty printing substrates are not only used for printing graphics, but are also employed in printing electronic components. Hence, they are used for functional printing. Specialty printing substrates are used in various novel applications such as photovoltaic, OLED displays, sensors, RFID, batteries, and OLED lighting.
  • Growth in economies and rise in middle-class population in South & Central American countries, such as Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica, and others, have boosted the food & beverages industry. This, in turn, is propelling the specialty printing substrates market.
