PRIMIR announces release of Inkjet Technologies study

Wednesday, August 06, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

RESTON, VA (August 05, 2008) A recent Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization (PRIMIR) study, Trends in Inkjet Technologies reviewed current and emerging inkjet technologies and addressed growth trends and forecasts for adoption of inkjet technologies in selected markets through 2011.  Conducted by I.T. Strategies (Hanover, MA) in late 2006 and circulated exclusively to PRIMIR members last year, PRIMIR is now offering this study to the printing industry at-large.

With the recent drupa being dubbed, among other things, 'the inkjet drupa,' it would seem that inkjet has finally come into the mainstream in the printing industry.  I.T. Strategies noted in the study that while the biggest market for inkjet technology is clearly display signage, over the course of the study timeframe (2006-2011), inkjet systems will be developed with the intent of challenging both electrophotography and analog print technologies.  In the graphic arts market, production inkjet is at a very early stage with one-third of the production print volume being transaction oriented.

The PRIMIR study provides a thorough analysis and review of the status of inkjet technology, covering thermal, Piezo and continuous inkjet and their usage and adoption in display signage, graphic arts, packaging, manufacturing/deposition and decorative/textile markets.

Many companies, large and small are focusing their R&D efforts on inkjet technology development.  The technology development path and adoption rates are covered in this comprehensive report.

The study, Trends in Inkjet Technologies, was distributed exclusively to PRIMIR members in early 2007 and is now available to firms throughout the print industry supply chain.  For information, contact Jackie Bland, PRIMIR Managing Director at jbland@primir.org, or by phone at (703) 264-7200, x211. Information is also available at www.primir.org.
