The packaging industry has also followed the trend of science and technology into the digital age

digital printing refers to the reproduction of images every time a copy is printed. The image carrier can be dynamic (toner) or virtual (inkjet). Although the effect of each digital printing is similar, they have essential differences. The packaging industry has also followed the trend of technology and entered the digital era. This is of great help to the development of the packaging industry

according to the new research of international Perla, the global market of digital printing, packaging and labels is expected to reach US $2.4 billion in 2010, and the market has expanded nearly three times. This market scale is expected to grow at a healthy compound annual growth rate of 182% and 23%, and is expected to reach nearly US $6.8 billion by 2014

according to some early research and expert analysis, in the packaging prospect of digital printing, they predict that the global market will decline in packaging types, end use markets, applications, geographical regions and production processes in the five years to 2014. In addition, the purpose of this study is to clearly define the advantages and disadvantages related to digital printing and packaging from 2009 to 2014. This study not only provides a detailed introduction to the development direction of key needs, but also analyzes the competitive pattern of the industry and business opportunities of equipment and consumables suppliers

digital printing does not require prepress and expensive traditional typesetting adjustments, thereby greatly reducing costs. Digital printing can not only print on various substrates, but also ensure that 1. The main purpose of digital printing machine proves the versatility of other printing methods

the main driving force of digital printing in the field of packaging and labels is the need for short customization and operation to limit dormant inventory. On demand digital printing of labels and packaging is crucial in the current economic downturn and waste reduction measures, because less and less materials, energy, and ink can be used. Standard digital work files - the same format as PDF (quark, adobeillustrator, PDF, adobeh and EskoArtwork) can not only be received, but also run after rapid folding and early warning in the early stage. Therefore, the work that used to start several days in advance can now be completed in one afternoon, which is just in line with the timely supply chain pursued by some brand owners

digital printing can also make the converter become a printing service provider and provide a wider range of electronic services than traditional printing businesses. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) support, network distribution, and digital image library management are currently part of the service provided by printers and converters

the biggest advantage of digital printing is that it can do variable data printing (VDP) and allow the production of unique products

among other things, it can be encoded and bar coded (1 and 2 dimensions), numbered, included in brand integrity devices, and produced in limited editions in different languages

with regard to the global market for digital printing packaging and labels by industry, driven by brand owners' pursuit of innovation and the faster printing speed required by converters, Pera international expects the digital use in flexible cords to increase by 4 to 5 times over the period. Some of this growth may come at the expense of folding cartons, which have been growing slowly over the past few years. In some cases, brand owners are turning to purely flexible packaging options

in the end-use market, because the penetration level of electronic technology is still at a relatively low level in the initial stage, food and beverage have ranked first, including hydraulic universal testing machine and electronic universal testing machine. Given the growth of ordinary production packaging and labels, the penetration rate is expected to increase in the near future. According to Perla's prediction, the industry will generate $6.06 million in global sales in 2009, which is expected to rise to $2.1 billion in 2014, with a year-on-year increase of 28%

this study also adds that the most common application of digital printing in the packaging market is general production. It is emphasized that even though the collection of inspection, prototype, sample and test is still dominant in the printed materials, the traditional production function is still the most important. Compared with packaging, this is especially applicable to label equipment consumables. According to Perla, digital production packaging and label printing are expected to be 93100 yuan in 2009, and it is expected to climb to 245million dollars in 2014 for laboratory testing instruments with nearly the same functions and parameters

from the perspective of geographical location, the market for digital printing and packaging can be roughly divided into developed countries and developing countries. Western Europe and North America witnessed the lowest growth rates, while Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa witnessed the highest. According to the prediction of Perla international, the average growth rate will be between 19% (North America) and 33% (Eastern Europe, although the starting point is low, but the growth momentum has exceeded the previous forecast in 2011)

digital printing system has made great progress. The latest systems include system glazing, coating, stacking, conveying, and die-cutting printing technology. Digital lines, including folding, bonding and filling machines, allow the entire printing and packaging process to be carried out in the same place, further saving logistics and supply chain transportation steps
