The Global Direct Thermal Printer Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The market has witnessed significant growth in recent years due to a rise in demand for high-quality printing equipment, as well as the rising adoption of digital technologies. Some of the key factors driving this market are growing awareness regarding environmental friendliness and low operational cost, which have led to increased consumption. It is expected that over the forecast period, there will be an increase in investments towards research & development activities for new products and solutions by manufacturers across all regions.
A Direct Thermal Printer is a type of printer that uses heat to create an image on paper. It works by heating up the dye ribbon, which in turn heats and sticks onto the top sheet of paper. The heated toner then transfers to any other sheets below it as they pass through the feed rollers. This printing process does not require ink ribbons or cartridges but instead relies on thermal energy from its own print head for operation.
The use cases are mainly divided into three segments: on-demand printing for promotional campaigns or events; print production from large format printers to smaller formats that are often needed in the manufacturing process (such as labels); direct thermal imaging for distribution purposes.
On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into Desktop Type and Mobile Type. The Desktop-type segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period as it requires less human intervention, has a higher printing speed, improved print quality with better color gamut, and also supports automatic duplexing printing.
Desktop-type is a printer that usually has more functions than Mobile and is available in different sizes. The printers are heavy-duty, have an array of features, large size bed for paper rolls and the prints tend to be high-quality with higher resolutions. Desktop Printers can also work on larger size papers which makes it popular among schools or businesses who need posters printed out quickly.
Desktop Type is used in many industries, the most popular of them being:
In the Mobile type, this printer is capable of printing on-demand and in a fast manner. This feature makes it suitable for warehouses or distribution centers that are constantly using labels to track items. The mobile printers have advanced features such as scanning barcodes on tags or marking crates with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips that help automate inventory systems. They offer a wide variety of ink types including thermal transfer ribbons, wax/resin ribbons, dye sublimation films, and many more that can be used to print various information like serial numbers, etc., directly onto paper without any need for an external computer connection.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Transportation & Logistics, Manufacturing, Retail.
Direct thermal printers are mainly used in the transportation and logistics industry. Direct-thermal barcode labels can be used on containers to help identify different types of inventory, including temperature-sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals or foodstuffs. They're also utilized for shipping manifests and parcel receipts when a tracking system is not available. These printers offer a cost-effective alternative to laser printing where high volume printing needs exist.
Direct Thermal Printer is used in the Manufacturing industry for printing various types of industrial labels. This printer is used for printing barcodes, date and time stamps on products as well as serial numbers, batch numbers, etc.
This technology was also widely adopted in the retail industry to print price tags on goods at checkout counters or store shelves. The direct thermal label printers are affordable compared to other technologies such as laserjet which require a high-priced toner cartridge replacement every now and then.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific & Middle East & Africa. The North American market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in terms of revenue during the forecast period. The growth is primarily attributed to advancements in technology and increasing demand from manufacturing industries, especially for desktop-type printers.
