Large Format Printer Market By Print Width (17" to 72" and Above), Ink Type (Aqueous, Solvent, UV-Cured, Latex and Dye-Sublimation), Application (Apparels, Signage, Advertising, Tile Murals, and CAD), And Geography - Global Forecast to 2020

Large Format Printing (LFP), also known as wide format printing, is basically a type of printing done using wide/large format printers, for printing documents that range from 17 inches to 72 inches in width. Printers that print over 72 inches are called as ‘super-wide or grand format printers'.

Large Format Printer has been created keeping graphic needs in mind. Images to be printed in a large format must have a resolution of 150 DPI or more due to the size of the end product. The inkjet technology is most commonly used in wide format printers as compared to other technologies such as laser or dot matrix because of its low initial costs, higher quality, and finer prints.

One of the many advantages of the wide format printers over the traditional press-printers is the droplet technology system used in them. It means that the pixels per square inch are simply in distinguishable. Another major advantage of large format printer is that it distinguishes, very well, between the text and graphics. One is able to read clearly between the lines as the text comes through, with each line distinguishable and understandable, no matter what the size of the font is. Large format printer do not only print on paper;they can also print on vinyl as well as textiles and, therefore, they are also used for textile printing.

Some of the key players in large format printer market, which have been covered in this report, are HP (U.S.), Canon (Japan), Epson (Japan), Roland (Japan), and Ricoh (Japan), among others.
