94%. The market size reflects the value of inkjet printheads across the end-user industries and is computed in the real term. Inkjet printhead products that are MEMS-based or conventional and operated with either drop-on-demand (thermal or piezo-based) or continuous technology processes are considered under the scope of the market studied.

Key Highlights
Bulk PZT or conventional PZT printing has been a turning point for substrate printing in the industrial sector, wherein high dots per inch (dpi) is secondary compared to high-volume. Inkjet printhead technology has made its way into ceramic tiles and functional printing. In addition, as thin-film and bulk PZT printheads do not directly interact with the substrate, these technologies have increased significantly in textiles and label printing.
The rising demand for inkjet printers from the commercial sectors is fueling the global market expansion. Piezoelectric inkjet printheads are used in the commercial sector for various purposes. Additionally, the global market for piezoelectric inkjet print heads is expanding due to the rapid improvements in inkjet printing technology. The major players in the market include Epson, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Ricoh, and Canon, among others.
Market participants are concentrating on R&D investments to advance this technology by lowering costs and boosting efficiency. For instance, Epson created high-quality, uniformly oriented sintered ceramic crystals using its specialized crystallization technology. Using this technology, the company developed a method for creating piezoelectric crystal films that are just one micron thick. Due to the uniform crystal structure of these thin-film piezoelectric components, they can produce a significant and consistent displacement. These piezoelectric actuators have a significantly higher nozzle density and maximize the ink output from tiny printheads.
The global market for industrial inkjet printheads is predicted to experience growth during the forecast period due to an increase in the use of these printers for printing on packaging material. Inline printing of batch data and codes is frequently done during the packaging process with inkjet printers. The problems typically brought on by contact printing techniques like embossing, such as blurry or missing prints, as well as holes in films, are eliminated with these printers. Labels, foils, packaging, leaflets, and cartons are just a few digital printing applications that use industrial inkjet printers. However, high cost is expected to restrain the players from introducing it for bulk production.
Demand for commercial printing reduced during the COVID-19 outbreak. Many events were canceled, which led to lower demand for promotional materials. Many organizations also moved to remote working, which boosted the trend toward paperless operations. Advertisers emphasized digital over physical media as consumers started using online media. All these factors significantly affected the market studied during the pandemic. One of the biggest operational challenges for the printing industry is finding skilled production workers. Moreover, many skilled workers would retire in the next five to 10 years. Due to this and the need for faster and more accurate printing operations, automation has kept pace in the printing market post-COVID-19 working conditions. As a result, the inkjet printing market is witnessing increased demand.

Key Market Trends

Office and Consumer-based End-user Type Segment Holds Largest Market Share

While inkjet printing is not new, its usage continues to increase as innovations in technology drive the changing role of print in communication, owing to personalization, integration, interactive/mobile, and the realities of diversification. Commercial printing has been popular since the invention of the printing press. Technological proliferation and rising applications in offices and personal space are anticipated to increase the demand for inkjet printheads globally. In addition to using inkjet printers in commercial printing businesses to create high-quality brochures, flyers, and other materials, these printers are typically used in homes and small offices.
Moreover, multifunctional printers are frequently used in business offices and educational settings, such as colleges and schools.
