Roland DGA, shares insights from its annual Substrate Index Report, revealing that UV printing is fast becoming an essential tool to support popular items created by the printing industry.

 

The annual survey of 140+ printing shops, provides a realistic outlook of the evolution of the UV printing market over time. This year, printers are continuing to print on the most popular material – Plastic, with 68% of those polled using it at least once (68%) closely followed by Metals (64%), PVC (60%), and Wood (58%). These same four materials came out top overall in last year’s report, with a small drop in popularity of Plastic (-7%) and Wood (-6%), while Metal (+10%) appears to have gained in popularity.

 

Similarly, in terms of frequency of use, these materials are leading the pack, with almost a quarter (24%) of all respondents saying they print on both plastic and PVC at least once a week, 18% print on metals once a week, and 26% print on Wood at least once a month.

 

In addition to these popular materials, Acrylic is also proving very popular.
