Key Factors Shaping the Global Digital Printing for Packaging Market
- Digital Printing Highly Preferred for Printing Jobs of Shorter Run Lengths
Conventional printing technologies incur high initial setup cost and hence, per unit cost is high for low volume printing. Moreover, high frequency of orders of shorter run lengths require scheduling multiple jobs and frequent plate changing. Customized communications, as part of packaging strategy, have led to a downward trend in run sizes. Manufacturers are looking for more precise ways of defining the equipment type and longer run lengths for printing. It is also observed that print service suppliers are mainly aiming to automate their printing technology. Therefore, short print jobs for packaging have permitted digital printing machinery manufacturers such as HP and Xeikon, to supply technology, which addresses the challenges in modern printing.
- Solutions for Variable Data Printing (VDP) Requirements
Digital printing for packaging incurs lower total cost for smaller amounts of printing jobs as compared to conventional printing technologies. Thus, companies can now print smaller quantities of packaging solutions with digital printing, with variable information, allowing the possibility of an innovative approach to packaging solutions. Variable data printing has ensured business opportunities for the digital printing for packaging market through possibilities, including printing static elements onto packaging or printing a combination of static and variable elements.
- In March 2017, Xeikon launched Xeikon PX3000 digital printer that allows variable data printing through multiple file formats and prints at higher speeds as compared to previous presses.
