This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Variable Data Printing Market is accounted for $19.10 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $65.25 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for variable data printed labels from food & beverage sector, increased focus on the aesthetic appeal of products and innovative printing, improved manufacturing activities, and growth of the parent industry are the major factors propelling the market growth. However, high cost of raw materials and advent of new technologies that are enabling printing on packages are hampering the market growth.

Variable data printing, or VDP, refers to a special form of digital printing where document content is determined by entries in a record or data set and can be highly personalized. Varied text, graphics, and images are typical content elements, but layout, element positioning, and even document choice are just some of the other variables. Because the content on the printed page is constantly changing, it would not be feasible to produce this type of print product with traditional offset lithography or with any other process that requires a fixed image plate.

Based on printing technology, the thermal transfer segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth due to its increasing usage for printing of high-quality barcodes. Thermal transfer is preferred over direct thermal printing on surfaces that are heat-sensitive or when higher durability of printed matter is desired. Thermal transfer is a popular print process particularly used for the printing of identification labels.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the rising disposable incomes and changing preferences of consumers towards informed buying and growing concerns among the manufacturers about the printing of varied data in a cost- and time-efficient manner.
