Large format printer means large printable materials that can be printed in sizes that are readily available on commercial printing presses. Larger format printing requires the use of special production equipment that can handle larger print sizes than usual. It is largely designed to hang on a flat wall, however, it can also be folded or in some cases made to stand free. Similar to an inkjet printer, it sprays ink on selected items to quickly produce quality prints with pure details and accuracy. Large format printers are used for a variety of applications, including printing banners, posters, trade show graphics, wallpapers, and automotive photos.

  • COVID-19 has caused a global manufacturing sector production slowdown.


The outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic has led to the closure or partial closure of factories, warehouses, businesses, and institutions around the world. This is augmented by the introduction of closure measures, which include strict rules for the public, limited mobility, and limited access to public areas, restaurants, theme parks, theaters, and supermarkets. Globally, many industries have seen disruptions in supply chain operations and logistics-related services.

Consumer consumption and companies sending closure measures, and disruption of the supply chain have contributed to the growth of a large format printing market. The market is seeing a decline due to the closure of many SMEs, disruption, closure, and other problems due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The epidemic has forced governments around the world to shift their focus from spending to health care. Demand from end users is also declining sharply by 2020.

To date, Asia Pacific and North America continue to be the worst-affected regions due to the occasional re-emergence of COVID-19 cases. This has left many businesses experiencing lower-than-usual consumer spending, thus disrupting revenue. As a result, demand for large-format printers has remained short.

By Type, the large format printer market is segmented into solvent, aqueous, UV cured, dye sublimation, and Latex. Although printers based on aqueous ink and solvent ink have advantages in terms of cost and overall image quality, they do have some drawbacks. aqueous ink takes a lot of time to dry and usually does not absorb water. Furthermore, when exposed to UV light, this type of ink deteriorates. Solvent ink, although waterproof and resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light, produces highly harmful chemical fumes during the printing process and requires special ventilation. On the contrary, UV-cured ink has many benefits; this type of ink dries almost instantly, is not resistant to UV, and has no significant environmental impact. In addition, it can be used for a variety of open and solid surfaces. UV-cured ink is gradually replacing solvent ink despite the cost due to its aforementioned benefits. Therefore, the demand for UV-cured ink is expected to rise and hold the largest market share during the forecast period.

By Technology, The large format printer market is divided into two segments ink-based technology and toner-based technology. One of the main reasons for the high growth rate of the inkjet printers market is the increase in the use of large-format inkjet printers for CAD printing applications. However, over time, manufacturers of inkjet printers have begun to provide faster inkjet printers at a reduced cost of using large format printers, which has led to widespread acceptance of inkjet printers in these industries. The reason for the decrease in demand for toner-based printers is the replacement of these printers with inkjet printers due to their advantages such as low cost and low maintenance.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
