Thermal printing market growth will witness a temporary slowdown in 2020. This can be attributed to the drop in global economic growth and temporary closure of several industries during the initial phase of imposed lockdowns globally. The closure of manufacturing facilities and disruption in the supply chain for e-commerce retailers will negatively impact the market growth. In addition, the pandemic has impacted the production capabilities of market players due to labor shortage, resulting in declined sales of thermal printing solutions.
