Industrial Screen Printing Market

The Global Industrial Screen Printing Market Is Driven By Rising Demand From Electronics Industry

Industrial screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. Industrial screen printing is very commonly used in industrial applications for printing on t-shirts, fabrics, glass, metal, plastic, ceramic and wood. It allows for mass production of printed parts and is utilized across various industries like textile, electronics, automotive etc. for manufacturing logos, designs, circuit boards and more. The screen printing process involves pushing or squeezing ink or dye onto a mesh screen that is blank in areas where an image is not wanted. When the screen meets the substrate like paper or fabric, ink goes through holes of mesh onto the substrate. This leaves a clearly defined pattern. Industrial screen printing offers benefits like high-quality resolution, multi-color printing capabilities, durability of prints, cost effectiveness for mass production and versatility.

The global Industrial Screen Printing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7.87 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the industrial screen printing market is the shift towards digital printing. Digital printing allows on-demand, low-volume runs without screens or plates which reduces time and costs for short runs and custom designs. It also enables greater creativity and personalization. Technologies like inkjet printing and laser engraving are gaining popularity for industrial applications providing advantages like variable data printing, instant design changes and reduced material waste. Adoption of digital printing is growing in industries like textile, electronics, advertisement and packaging. However, screen printing still has advantages for longer print runs due to very low per-unit costs. Innovation in screen printing machinery to increase automation is another trend. Companies are developing automated screen mounting machines, automatic screen changers and integrated units to reduce labor requirements and speed up production.
