In Short

In the last year we have seen many exciting advances in technology.

In the last year we have seen many exciting advances in technology. The continued rise of voice control devices, cloud-based computing, as well as new developments in the internet.

All of this and more is set to transform the printing technology marketplace in 2019 and here we are going to look the top three emerging print trends that we are most excited about…

 

Voice control

 

In 2018 we saw the introduction of voice recognition capabilities within a small number of smart printers. In 2019 the focus will be on offering more ‘smart’ services that are required in today’s workplace. Voice control will remain an opportunity for industry players to position their products and services as innovative and help businesses improve their efficiency.

 

Sustainable packaging

 

The packaging industry will witness significant advances in digital printing methods, as the need for sustainable packaging increases. In particular, corrugated inkjet will drive growth in this industry with focus on corrugated board, folding cartons, and flexible plastics.

 

3D Printing

 

3D printing is a great example of a quickly advancing technology. 3D metal printing is positioned to be the next big wave in this industry. HP has its Jet Fusion model, which it hopes will make a difference in the metal parts manufacturing sector. GE has been printing metal parts for jet engines and even Nike is using this method for its trainers.

 

Over the next year, the print industry will continue to innovate and reinvent, and offering printing services that are more relevant to the smart workplace and the modern world will remain a very exciting and expanding area.
