Barcode Printers Market : Overview

A barcode printer is computer equipment that prints barcode tags or labels on things that are affixed or printed on them. They're commonly utilized to print barcodes on things before they're sent or to tag retail items. In comparison to many other printers, barcode printers are speedier and have a longer service life. A barcode printer employs one of two technologies: thermal transfer or direct thermal printing. The heat from a direct thermal printer causes a chemical reaction in a specific design, turning the paper black. The heat from the thermal transfer printer melts a resin or waxy substance that flows over the material's tag.

Barcode Printers Market : Growth Drivers

  • Increasing demand for wireless and mobile printers will boost the market growth.

Mobile printers range in size from cart-mounted printers to small handheld printers. Mobile format printers handle label formats, print jobs, variable data, and other information from host systems over a wireless network connection. Because of the high-quality print result, medium usage flexibility, minimal maintenance needs, and rugged nature of these printers, thermal printing technology are ideal for mobile printers. Because of its ease of use and simplicity for high-volume tag print, direct thermal technology is widely employed in mobile printing. Advanced mobile printers are lightweight, simple to use, and long-lasting, with the excellent print quality and the ability to print on a range of media. Mobile point-of-sale (POS) printers are widely used in healthcare, retail, hospitality, and other industries where flexibility, simplicity of use, and cost reductions are critical. These factors are fueling the demand for global barcode printers market.

Barcode Printers Market : Restraints

  • Stringent regulations for printing may hinder the market growth.

Printing rules guarantee that printing techniques are environmentally friendly. The European legal Environmental regulations, which controls the releases of volatile compounds through printing services, shows strict rules for printing sector in Europe. The regulations also guarantees that printing reagents are castoff correctly. In Europe, the printing sector is equally committed to lowering greenhouse gas emissions and, as a result, helping to reduce carbon footprints. Additionally, the European Timber Regulation assures that the material used in printing is not derived from illegitimate logging. Furthermore, the US Food and Drug Administration, via the Federal Food and Drug Cosmetics Act, assures that the ink in use for printing on food containers is safe to use and created using good manufacturing standards. Such regulation may slow down the market growth over the forecast period.

Global Barcode Printers Market : Opportunities

  • Increasing demand for barcode printers in the supply chain sector will provide better growth opportunities.

The key to effective company management is the well-organized management of the deliverable products supply chain. Shipment prominence and traceability are improved by barcode technology. The rising number of thefts and frauds in consumer products and medicines is driving up demand for barcode printers. In logistics and supply chain management, the use of barcode labels helps enable efficient stock management, efficient cargo movement through logistic networks, and effective monitoring of manufacturing & assembly operations. Additionally, because they offer the option of employing barcode verifiers, barcode printers reduce the expenditures allied with improper printed labels. These verifiers guarantee the output's overall quality. Barcode printers offer quick payback periods. As a result, the supply chain industry's need for barcode printers is expected to rise, thereby driving the growth of the global barcode printers market throughout the projected period.

Global Barcode Printers Market : Challenges

  • Smudged bar lines due to the high heat setting in the barcode printers pose a major challenge to the manufacturers.

Barcode printers employ a printhead with several small heating elements that cause prints to turn black when heated. The ribbon of a printer is loaded with wax and/or resin, and the wax and/or resin is moved onto the tag via the transmission of heat from the printer to the ribbon. The ribbon does not heat and cools consistently this could result in the leading and trailing margins of the text, graphics, or lines on the label being unevenly printed. On a label, there should be enough contrast between black lines and light spaces for the scanner to detect it. The barcode appears smeared and labels emerge with broad bar lines if the temperature is set high. Such drawbacks can lead to low demand for barcode printers in the future.

Global Barcode Printers Market : Segmentation

  • The global barcode printers market is categorized into printer type, printing technology, consumables, distribution channel, and region. 

Based on printer type, the market is categorized into industrial barcode printers and desktop barcode printers. The printing technology segment is bifurcated as direct thermal, thermal transfer, dot matrix, laser, and ink jet. Consumables are segregated as ribbons and wax ribbons.
