Decorative printing has long been a way to provide businesses and consumers with a way to surround themselves with color rich materials at work, at home, or anywhere that can benefit from innovative architectural and interior design. The desire to customize our working and living environment is a powerful driver that spells a wide-ranging need for decorative printing in several key applications including ceramic tile, glass, textile, sign & display, laminates, functional, flooring, and wall covering.
In the past, production methods for decorative elements achieved the desired look and feel using traditional, analog print processes. Screen, gravure, and lithographic printing have created a wealth of designs, but by their nature they are meant for mass production and cannot efficiently create custom decoration or be cost effective in small batches. Today, after decades of ongoing development and improvements, digital printing is capturing ever-growing production volumes worldwide in a range of décor applications.
With this research on the décor marketplace, InfoTrends is beginning a series of research projects that over time will cover the main methods and applications using digital technologies for industrial and functional printing. In this particular study, a series of in-depth interviews and surveys will allow InfoTrends to assess the impact of digital solutions, examine the sentiment of the Architect & Interior design community (A&D), and quantify the opportunity for manufacturers and suppliers of printing equipment and inks, software providers, and service providers.
This study will identify the size of opportunities in digital décor printing, profile the key players and develop recommendations for those that want to build new business lines around these emerging products as well as:
