Heel tampography printing machine knowledge
Tampography printing is also named pad printing.Tampography has been successfully applied in many industries.Many shoe material manufacturers still do not realize the superiority of pad printing.
Newly released data from heel tampography printing machine market analysis shows that global market demand for heel tampography printing machines is estimated to register a CAGR of ~3.7% during the forecasted period and reach thousands of units by 2031. The growing popularity of tampography printing among the manufacturers of the footwear industry for its high efficiency and accuracy to drive the market growth.
Global Heel Printing Machine Market: Market Outlook
The tampography printing process is an indirect process for photogravure printing where the image from a 2D format is transferred to a 3D object. In the tampography printing process depression of desired design are made on a flat plate and ink is filled into these depressions.
Then the silicone pads which act as transfer medium are dipped in the depressions and then pressed onto the desired object. The machine offers high flexibility and freedom for the users to print on a large variety of objects.
The tampography printing machines are widely used in the consumer goods, automotive, medical devices, pharmaceutical, electronics, and apparel and footwear industry for printing on various substrates. The growing demand for efficient printing solutions for objects with varied shapes from several end-use industries is projected to drive the market growth of heel tampography printing machines.
What are the Key Trends Impacting Growth of the Heel Tampography Printing Machine Market?
The growing popularity of printing multicolor designs and prints on various consumer items is one of the trends positively influencing the market for heel tampography printing machines. As in the case of the tampography printing process, only the required amount of paint is picked by the silicone pad and just a thin layer is applied onto the object the drying time is significantly reduced.
The reduced drying time makes multicolor printing through this method very efficient as another set of prints with different colors can be applied to the object without wasting much time. The multicolor prints are highly desirable in the fashion industry which is raising the demand for heel tampography printing machines in the market.
How is Growing Fashion Industry Reshaping the Heel Printing Machine Market?
The rising per capita income levels of consumers across the globe is fuelling the growth of the fashion industry. Further, the growing e-commerce sector is another factor that is bolstering the demand for several products in the fashion industry.
The heel tampography printing machines are convenient and cost-effective tools widely used in the fashion industry for printing on heels and soles of footwear products. The consistent growth of the fashion industry is anticipated to boost the market demand for heel tampography printing machines in the market.
What are the Key Challenges that may Restrain Growth of the Heel Printing Machine Market?
The heel tampography printing machines are highly vulnerable when compared to other alternatives in terms of the environmental conditions surrounding the printing area. The change in humidity, temperature and pressure conditions that includes increase or decrease can negatively impact the print quality.
However, there are other alternative printing techniques like transfer printing or laser printing that do not have these restraints. The heel tampography printing machine market growth might be restrained as a result of the wide availability of alternatives and high vulnerability towards external environmental conditions.
