Screen Printing Mesh Market: Unorganized Textile and Packaging Industry to Act as a Prime Mover for Revenue Growth: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Global Screen Printing Mesh Market Analysis: Rapidly rising demand for screen printing on glass is expected to create significant potential for the screen printing mesh market

The key factor propelling the global demand for screen printing mesh is the simplicity in operation and economic feasibility of screen printing for low output printing demands. The global screen printing mesh market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% by the end of 2028. By substrate type, the global screen printing mesh market is segmented into paper & paperboard, metal, plastic, fabric, and glass.

The screen printing technique is majorly adopted for printing of textiles and paper products. This has led the cumulative market share of fabric and paper & paperboard segments to be around 95% of the global screen printing mesh market in 2018 in terms of value. The majority of the demand for screen printing mesh for paper & paperboard substrate originates from the packaging industry.

The share of printed glass in the global glass industry is as low as 2%. Screen printing is majorly preferred for printing on glass containers, owing to its capability of easily printing on curved surfaces. These factors have driven the demand for screen printing mesh in the glass substrate. The glass segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate among all segments by substrate type.

The appealing aesthetics of screen printed glass containers have found applications not only in the packaging industry but also in the building & construction industry and other creative art applications, creating a significant opportunity for the screen printing mesh market.

The demand for screen printing mesh for screen printing of electronic components is significantly high across the globe, driving the metal segment in the market. The surface area which requires screen printing is much lesser as compared to the printing area in fabric and paper products. This has led to a low market share of metal segment in the global screen printing mesh market.

The development of various printing techniques is gradually replacing screen printing for several applications and affecting the demand of the screen printing mesh. Most printing firms with low volume output and low investment capabilities prefer screen printing owing to its economic feasibility. This has driven the market share of the plastic substrate in the global screen printing mesh market, but it is projected to create a low incremental revenue opportunity in the screen printing mesh market during the forecast period.


In the present market scenario, around 90% of the fabrics are printed with the screen printing technique, resulting in the market share of fabrics substrate to be more than half in the global screen printing mesh market. On the other hand, digital printing for fabrics is projected to grow at around 20% annually for the next five years which is expected to affect the growth of screen-printed textiles and negatively impact the screen printing mesh market for fabrics segment. As fabrics substrate or textile industry is the primary focus of the screen printing mesh, development and high pace adoption of other printing techniques for fabrics are projected to be a threat to the global screen printing mesh market in the long term.

Screen printing is generally not preferred for very fine quality printing applications such as barcodes. Screen printing mesh is significantly consumed for screen printing of labels and hevay duty corrugated packaging which only require basic printing quality rather than focusing on high aesthetics with very fine printing quality.

To stand in the global printing market with the advanced printing techniques such as flexographic, offset, litho-offset hybrid, digital printing, and others, developments introduced in the screen printing mesh have played a crucial role. Developments in the screen printing mesh include the introduction of high tensile screen printing mesh which provides improved quality of printing and very fine screen printing. Another development in screen printing mesh market is the introduction of a hybrid material thread, in which the material of core and sheath (outer layer) is different, imparting the desirable properties of both the materials to the screen printing mesh.

3-D screen printing mesh is one of the readily growing trends in the global screen printing mesh market. The 3-D screen printing mesh differs from conventional screen printing mesh in weaving pattern which improves the ink retention capability of the mesh. These developments introduced in the screen printing mesh have improved screen printing quality and have driven the global screen printing mesh market.

Detailed profiles of companies are also included in the report to evaluate their strategies, key product offerings, and recent developments. The key players of the global screen printing mesh market are Haver & Boecker OHG, Nippon Tokushu Fabric, Inc., NBC Meshtec, Inc., Sefar AG, Maishi Wire Mesh Mfg, Weisse & Eschrich GmbH & Co. KG, Asada Mesh Co., Ltd., Saati S.p.A., Nakanuma Art Screen Co., Ltd. and Extris Srl.
