Digital Label Presses & Their Impact “Label and packaging converters worldwide bill about $2 billion annu- ally for the output of their color digital presses,” says Bob Leahey, associate director, InfoTrends. “ While about 95 percent of that value is for labels for consumer goods, the young folding car- ton and flexible packaging applications are themselves growing.” Geographically, Leahey maintains that Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA), and North America (NA) are the biggest markets for color digital label and pack- aging presses. “Asia Pacific and Japan (AP/J) and rest of world (ROW) are the smaller and faster-growing regions. ” InfoTrends estimates that converters worldwide spent $166 million on color digital presses in 2010 and that that total will grow at a 10.3 percent annual rate, 2010 to 2015. Leahey reports, “Last year, 2010, was a bigger year for color electrophotographic presses than we expected. Meanwhile, inkjet place- ments were not as robust as we had earlier forecasted. There’s good growth, though, on both sides. Converters now often use color digital presses in tandem with their analog systems, and some converters operate both electro- photographic and inkjet presses.” Over 40 years of experience in the flexographic industry, design and production of the highest quality systems. innovation is the key to our success.
