For instance, the G20 initiative on Supporting Industrialization in Africa and Less-developed Countries (LDCs) for eliminating poverty and promoting sustainable development will contribute towards the growth of retail, transportation & logistics, and manufacturing sectors. These industries require fast printing of labels to reduce the time-to-market and increase profitability. Thermal printing technology has gained popularity in the industrial sector due to its ability to create durable & long-lasting images that are resistant to external climatic factors. It can also create legible & smudge-free images, ensuring product safety and reducing the threat of counterfeit products.


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.
