Global Thermal Printers Are Expected To Reach a CAGR of 4.8% during the Forecasted Period 2016–2020

Date: 2016-09-12

Compare to the other technologies of printing, thermal printers print more quietly and usually faster than impact dot matrix printers. They are also smaller, lighter and consume less power, making them ideal for portable and retail applications. Its efficiency can be utilized in retail sectors. Roll-based printers can be rapidly refilled. Global Thermal Printers are expected to reach a CAGR of 4.8% during the period 2016–2020. 

Commercial applications of thermal printers include filling station pumps, information kiosks, point of sale systems, voucher printers in slot machines, print on demand labels for shipping and products, and for recording live rhythm strips on hospital cardiac monitors. Retailers prefer thermal printers in POS systems because the sound of dot matrix printers can be too noisy and disturbing for customers.

There are two kinds of thermal printers:
Thermal wax transfer: 
Thermal wax transfer printer adheres a wax-based ink onto paper. A thermal print head melts wax-based ink from the transfer ribbon onto the paper. When cool, the wax is permanent. This type of thermal printer uses an equivalent panel of ink for each page to be printed, no matter if a full page or only one line of print is transferred. Monochrome printers have a black page for each page to be printed, while color printers have either three (CMY) or four (CMYK) colored panels for each page. As a result, images are not quite photo-realistic, although they are very good.
Direct thermal: 
This type of printer prints the image by burning dots onto coated paper when the paper passes over a line of heating elements. Early fax machines used direct thermal printing.

According to research, these two kinds of thermal printers market share as following:
