Newton, MA (PRWEB) March 15, 2010
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), has released of a series of reports that cover the wide-format printing market. The three new wide-format market reports are based on key findings from Lyra’s Wide-Format Printing Industry Advisory Service (WFS) 2009 forecast. Included in the series are the following three reports: A Tumultuous Period for CAD Hardware and Supplies Markets: Worldwide Forecast, 2006–2013; Worldwide Forecast for the Wide-Format Solvent Market, 2006–2013; and Worldwide Forecast for Aqueous Graphics Hardware and Supplies, 2006–2013.
A Tumultuous Period for CAD Hardware and Supplies Markets: Worldwide Forecast, 2006–2013 examines why the market for wide-format CAD ink jet hardware and supplies experienced a steep decline in 2008 and 2009, and why it is expected to decline further as a result of the recession. Macroeconomic and industry-specific problems such as the global downturn in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector and the lengthening of the printer life cycle are battering OEMs and end users alike. As a result, Lyra’s 2009 WFS forecast reflects a level of decline that is without precedent in the industry and projects that hard times will impact the industry for the next few years. Specifically, this report analyzes hardware, ink, and media in the 24- to 44-inch (61 to 112 cm) wide-format CAD ink jet printer segment.

Worldwide Forecast for the Wide-Format Solvent Market, 2006–2013 analyzes and provides forecast information for the solvent market. It explains that solvent manufacturers face long-term challenges in addition to the effects of the brutal, short-term recession, and it provides a comprehensive outlook for solvent printer, ink, and media shipments and revenue. Specifically, the report covers six wide-format solvent market segments: high-end (elsewhere), high-end (China/South Korea), midrange (elsewhere), midrange (China/South Korea), low-end (1+ meter), and low-end (less than 1 meter). Details are also provided regarding the maturity of the market, the need for new hardware platforms, the impact of alternative ink jet technologies on the industry, and the influence of environmental regulation.

Worldwide Forecast for Aqueous Graphics Hardware and Supplies, 2006–2013 discusses how the recession has caused aqueous graphics vendors, ink manufacturers, and media suppliers to search for ways to stabilize their businesses over the last 12 months and position their companies for long-term growth. This report covers aqueous graphics hardware (24- to 44-inch and 44+ inch wide-format graphics printers); competition that the market is encountering from solvent, UV-curable, and latex devices; the consolidation of aqueous production; shipment and revenue figures for ink and media; and the hardware installed base.

“These forecast reports provide keen insight into the economy’s impact on the market; hardware, ink, and media shipments and revenue figures; the demand for new technology; and the competitive and regulatory forces that are shaping the market’s future,” commented Andrew Lippman, senior analyst for Lyra’s Wide-Format Printing Advisory Service.
