Inkjet segment, by printhead type, is accounted for the largest market share

The global digital printing market has been segmented into inkjet and laser. In 2020, the inkjet segment accounted for the largest market share of 64.51% in the global digital printing market. For home printing, an inkjet printer is a common choice. They make images by spraying thousands of microscopic ink droplets onto paper with precision, similar to how TV and computer screens render images with thousands of pixels. Yellow, magenta, and cyan ink cartridges are the most common. The printer can blend these three fundamental colors together to create whatever colors are required for the print job. An element known as the print head rotates back and forth as the paper is fed through a pair of rollers, accurately spraying ink. Though this method is far less complicated than laser printing, it is more prone to smearing.

Asia Pacific accounts for the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on the regions, the global digital printing market has been segmented as North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Globally, Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the highest CAGR of 8.81% in the global digital printing market during the forecast period.
