Technology Insights

Impact technology and non impact technology are the two key technologies are available for barcode printing. Impact printing technologies include dot matrix printing and drum printing technologies while non impact technology includes thermal transfer, direct thermal, ink jet printers and laser printers. Dot matrix printing has witnessed the significant growth owing to the oldest and cheapest method for generating low to medium mass on-site barcodes by means of numerous dots printed as template to construct a series of spaces &lines. Dot matrix printing is expected to continue with the growth in coming years. Ink jet printers are going to impact the market growth owing to increasing demand of barcode printing in locales where high manufacturing of barcodes is needed at a faster rate. Thermal transfer printing technology is anticipated to lead the market due to improved image robustness and ability to execute in mission critical functions. Increasing requirement o f functions having a short life span such as shipping labels and receipts is expected to increase the demand for direct thermal printing technology followed by significant impact on the market growth over the forecast period.
