  • 11. Ink-Jet Outlook • More nozzles – more speed – more quality There are some more speed increases in store for 2010 However speeds & productivity are entering areas, where it is difficult to have sufficient volumes In the next phase the aim will be to increase quality - There will also be a positive effect on imaging engine costs as redundancy can go down • Aim is to print on standard substrates Possible strategies: - Integrated precoating unit bonding agents - Paper with added surface treatment Other direction could be UV, but so unfamiliar glossy look on uncoated paper and high costs for “standard” documents (higher ink costs) • Huge latitude in possible ink chemistry makes optimisation difficult We will rather see more types of inks adapted to certain applications © 2009 InfoTrends, Inc. www.infotrends.com 11
  • 12. Ink-Jet Outlook • Deinkability needs to be monitored closely Vendors are working on solutions, but it also requires concessions from the paper/recycling industry Only partially a technical problem, but one of market perception. Concerns of document owners need to be taken seriously • Many “dark horses” in the market which could emerge in coming 5-10 years Still new technologies to produce ink droplets are developed Regular monitoring of market situation necessary • Long term aim for ink-jet is to compete against offset on speeds and quality Transpromo will reap the benefits of speed & quality improvements which are aimed at the general Graphic Arts market © 2009 InfoTrends, Inc. www.infotrends.com 12
