The large format printer market is expected to grow from $8.37 billion in 2017 to $10.59 billion by 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.00 percent between 2017 and 2023. However, major restraining factors for the growth of the large-format printer market include high initial investments and operating costs

Large-Format Printer Market for RIP Software expected to Grow Highest

Raster image processor (RIP) software offerings for large format printer is the fastest-growing segment, according to Report Buyer. It helps in effective processing of files, which makes large=format printers work faster and more consistently, which is very important for printing on different materials such as plastics, textiles, and other materials. With a dedicated RIP program, which is capable of processing larger files, print-management tasks become much easier; it also enables users to multitask, thereby increasing process efficiency

Large-Format Printer Market for Inkjet-Printer Expected to Grow Highest

Report Buyer forecasts that the market for ink-based (inkjet) printer technology is expected to grow at the highest rate during the 2017 to 2023 period. One of the major reasons for the higher growth of the market for inkjet printers is the increasing use of inkjet large-format printers for technical and CAD printing. Inkjet printers are said to provide reduced running costs for large-format printing, which has led to the widespread adoption of inkjet printers in this industry

The large format printer market in the APAC (Asia-Pacific) region is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023.

Countries such as Japan and South Korea are already developed economies, and the People’s Republic of China had been the fastest-growing economy in the world for the last two decades. According to Report Buyers, there’s “likely to be a tremendous demand for large-format printers in the region during the forecast period because of high growth in graphic printing, apparel and textile printing, and CAD and technical printing.”

APAC produces a large amount of apparel and textiles, and this sector is expected to grow steadily in this region. Significant growth is likely to be witnessed in advertising and signage in India mainly due to the booming economy.
