Why the use of large format printers in home furnishing & decorating as well as vehicle wrapping applications acts as an opportunity for the market?

Large format printers play a vital role in the decor market. The major benefits offered by these printers include their ability to produce higher quality images and graphical presentations as compared to standard printers. These printers offer the optimum document size and high image clarity required for efficient printing on end mediums, which are used for home furnishing & decorating as well as vehicle wrapping applications. Large format printers assist architects in printing designs quickly and accurately. For instance, when a contractor wants to deliver a floor plan or an interior designer wants to show a room design concept, these printers produce large format documents with images, colors, and graphics. Vehicles wraps are an excellent and cost-effective medium for mobile advertising as they can reach thousands of travelers on a regular basis. These wraps are becoming popular advertising mediums and use large format printers for printing them. Large format printers also print decorative wraps for walls of homes, studios, etc. Therefore, the growing demand for vehicle wraps from the decor industry is expected to fuel the requirement of large format printers worldwide.

Why high initial investments and operating costs act as challenges for the market?

Large format printers require high initial investments for their installation and maintenance. This acts as a challenge for the growth of the market. Large format printing also requires printing materials in large quantities. Moreover, the annual electricity consumption of these printers is also high. The design complexity of large format printers and high costs of inks are some of the major factors responsible for their high operational costs. Though the top tier manufacturers are offering printers at low prices, a few factors such as high operational costs of these printers are yet to be mitigated. The advertising sector, a major end user of large format printers, is currently shifting its focus toward the use of super-wide format printers, which have high associated costs. Thus, the high initial investments act as a challenge for the growth of the market.
