US demand for specialty printing consumables will grow 7.4 percent annually through 2007, driven by a shift toward digital printing in offices and homes, and increasing needs for end-product differentiation and document security in industrial printing. Coated digital paper and synthetic print media will lead gains, followed by toner and inks.
This study analyzes the $12.6 billion US specialty printing consumables industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1997 and 2002 and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by product type (e.g., inks, toner, specialty substrates, cleaning fluids and wipes); and by market (office and professional, consumer).
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 38 leading competitors including Sun Chemical, Canon, Xerox, Ricoh, and Flint Ink.
