InfoTrends' New Study Gives Insight into the Fastest Segment of Printing Industry

Press release from the issuing company

New high-speed inkjet systems have entered the production digital printing market and are creating new opportunities for digital color print. With high levels of productivity, compelling cost of operation, and quality levels that greatly improve what was previously available from inkjet systems, these new devices will account for about 40% of digital color pages globally by 2015.

To gain a clear understanding of the impact these systems are having on the market, InfoTrends announces the completion of a new multi-client study entitled The High-speed Continuous-feed Color Inkjet Opportunity: Global Insights from Leading Customers.

This research includes interviews for 52 sites in 15 countries around the world. These case studies reflect the responses to questions via phone or on-site in-person interviews with company presidents, senior management, and production managers. Information gathered provides a unique insight into successes and challenges, the enablers and barriers, and the opportunities seen by a wide range of book printers, direct mailers, transaction printers, and other users involved in this rapidly growing segment of the market.

This study aims to identify the opportunity for the continuous color inkjet market and will include growth potential through 2015. Key findings include:
