Latest company news about Inkjet printer nozzle technology innovation, the industry will develop to high-end in 2021

The nozzle of an inkjet printer refers to a device that can eject printing media such as ink, dye liquor, metal dispersant, etc. from the nozzle to the substrate at a certain speed, thereby realizing the transmission of graphic and text information. There are many types of inkjet printer heads. The two most common types are piezoelectric and thermal. Among them, thermal inkjet heads are mainly used for disinfectants and office applications, while electric inkjet heads are used in the industrial field. The proportion is higher.

With the continuous improvement of inkjet printing technology and the diversification of printing materials, the electric inkjet print head is no longer limited to high-end advertising inkjet printing in the industry, and has been widely used in ceramics, electronics, 3D printing, textile printing and dyeing and other fields , the market demand is also expanding, the industry development prospects are good.

my country is in the stage of industrial transformation and upgrading. The continuous transformation of technologies in textile printing and dyeing, ceramic construction, advertising and other fields, as well as the rapid development of emerging 3D technologies, have prompted the continuous growth of the market demand for inkjet printer nozzles. Driven by developing countries represented by China, the scale of the global inkjet printer nozzle market continues to expand. It is estimated that the global inkjet printer nozzle market will reach US$3.4 billion by 2024, with a compound annual growth rate of approximately 5%.

The development of inkjet printheads has experienced thermal bubble printheads and piezoelectric printheads. The technology has also developed from traditional technology to MEMS technology, and the application field has also changed from consumer printing to industrial printing. As far as the global market is concerned, piezoelectric inkjet printheads currently occupy a dominant position in the industrial field, and nearly 80% of piezoelectric inkjet printheads still use traditional technology, so the future development space for MEMS technology is relatively broad.

With the continuous change of technology, the materials that can be ejected by inkjet print heads are increasing. At present, there are mainly functional inks such as pigments, titanium dioxide special inks, white inks, conductive metal inks, and dielectric inks. Industrial market segments such as packaging applications, printed electronics, display, and bioprinting are growing faster, but demand is declining in consumer and office printing markets.

According to the "2021-2026 China Inkjet Printer Nozzle Industry Application Market Demand and Development Opportunities Research Report" released by Synopsys Industrial Research Center, in terms of production, the world's main manufacturers of inkjet printer nozzles include HP, Canon, Epson, Fujifilm Films, Purcell, Konica Minolta, Seiko, TRIDENT, Kyocera, Toshiba, Ricoh and other companies have leading technology levels and have great influence in the global market. Among them, HP has the highest market occupancy rate and is the largest in the world. supplier of inkjet printer nozzles.

With the change of technology, the types of materials sprayed by the nozzles of inkjet printers are increasing, and their application fields are also expanding. From the consumer office field to the industrial field, the application demand continues to grow, and the industry has a good development prospect. In terms of market competition, there are currently many companies in the field of inkjet printer nozzles, and the market competition is relatively fierce, and there are still certain development opportunities in the future market.
