The U.S. specialty printing consumables market was valued at US$24.09 bn in 2015 and, increasing at a 4.4% CAGR, is forecast to reach US$35.75 bn by 2024.

Leading manufacturers of specialty printing consumables, such as DIC Corp., Xerox Corp., Canon Inc., HP Development Co., and Eastman Kodak Co., are working aggressively on product innovation in order to meet the rising expectations of consumers. For instance, in October 2015, Canon unveiled its resin 3D printer concept, which, according to the company, is well suited for rapid prototyping as well as manufacturing. The concept is projected to be much faster than current technologies and aims to produce stronger prints.

Over the coming years, the leading participants in the U.S. specialty printing consumables market will have to focus on strategic alliances with companies in other sectors in order to expand their product sales,” the author of the study notes.
