This IDC study provides a forecast for the North America large format printer (LFP) market for 2021-2025. The large format printer market in North America is a collection of technologies that are in vastly different stages of market development. While aqueous inkjet continues to displace toner-based technologies on the computer-aided design(CAD) side, latex and UV technologies are displacing aqueous inkjet as production technologies in the graphics space. While most of the large format production technologies are seeing a recovery in 2021, latex, dye sublimation, and UV inkjet are leading the way as they enable a wider range of applications and faster response times.
"The large format printing market is going to rally back from production and volume standpoints," said Tim Greene, research director, IDC's Hardcopy Solutions group. "As the economy opens back up and events that drive a lot of large format print volume restart, the companies that have been creative and opportunistic enough to have endured the COVID-19 crisis should be well positioned to share in the market's recovery."
