Direct-to-Shape Inkjet Printers Market: Coronavirus Outbreak to Hurt Sales Marginally as Industrial Labeling Operations are Suspended, Says Future Market Insights

Major direct-to-shape inkjet printer manufacturers are investing in social distancing measures and automation, in addition to the optimization of cash flow to reduce risk of contagion in production facilities.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The direct-to-shape inkjet printers market is anticipated to surpass a valuation of US$5 Bn by the end of the assessment period in 2030. Suspension of industrial activities in multiple sectors during the coronavirus pandemic is projected to have an adverse effect on the direct to shape inkjet printers market in the short term. However, extremely wide-ranging applications in multiple verticals will help to partially mitigate losses as governments gradually reopen businesses to restart the economy.

“Numerous verticals, including food processors, pharma companies, and other FMCG businesses are moving away from conventional digital labels to direct-to-shape alternatives. Direct-to-shape inkjet printers are highly versatile and provide superior quality graphics on multiple substrate materials, which will influence market players for the foreseeable future,” says the FMI analyst.
