The Future of Digital vs Offset Printing to 2022 predicts that digital printing will continue to grow in most print sectors across the world. Mono electrophotography is being superseded by full-colour inkjet, and the introduction of B2 and B1 digital presses will squeeze the small format cut sheet toner market, as companies look to higher performance equipment.

In 2017 digital print accounts for 16.4% of global print and printed packaging in value terms, but just 3.9% of the volume. This is up from 12.0% of the value and 2.2% of the volume in 2012, and the analogue to digital transition is accelerating as new, high-performance equipment in adopted by printers and packaging converters. By 2022 digital will be 19.1% of value and 4.3% of volume.
