Some of the major end-use industries in the global functional printing market have been witnessing strong growth in emerging regions such as the Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

Segment Analysis

The process of sending forward the functionality in 2D & 3D components that are based on silicon is called functional printing. This is used to print on many substrates such as glass and paper with ink and different substrates and helps deposit and control the pattern on the material. Applications of functional printing such as RFID tags, sensors, and displays are boosting the market.

The market is segmented based on the material, the printing method, and the application.

Based on the material, the market is bifurcated into substrates and inks.

On the basis of the method of printing, it is segmented as Inkjet Printing, Screen Printing, Gravure Printing, Flexography, and Others. The inkjet printing method is expected to lead the market. It is the most cost-efficient option from the printing methods. With the flood of technology in other sectors, it is also being used in product decoration, biochip, printable electronics, among many others. This type of printing is also used for 3D printing. The inkjet printing offers various advantages such as flexibility in productivity, printing variable data, a quick turnaround time which makes it more useful in various industries.

By the application, the market is divided into Sensors, Displays, Lighting, Battery, Photovoltaic, RFID, Tags, and Others.

The North America region has the largest market share for functional printing market. There is an increase in the demand for NFC (Near Field Communication) in the region which is driving the market. The increase in the development of Smartphone technology at a rapid pace is the cause of mobiles being used for payments. A Smartphone is now the main payment method among the consumers due to the functioning of the NFC chip.
