Some segments of the printing industry have truly been revolutionized by high-speed inkjet technology while others have been slower to adopt. Inkjet technologies drive change across a multitude of different types of business, but often inkjet gets lumped into one generic term, and it’s hard to find the real opportunities within the hype.
This session will look at how inkjet is positioned in different aspects of the printing and mailing industry, how it is causing business models to evolve, and where technology is being revolutionized.
Attendees will learn:
- Who is driving change in these markets?
- Which application segments are most affected?
- How can inkjet change business models?
- What technology trends are important to understand for the future?
This session will draw on research from Inkjet Insight. All participating attendees will receive 90-day premium membership access to InkjetInsight.com to further their inkjet-related research.
