IoT and AI
The Internet of Things (IoT) is where products and appliances automatically connect to other appliances or service center through the internet. Naturally, printers are connected to computers, but it’s increasingly common to see printers that connect to smartphones, enabling services such as printing-on-the-go. The IoT will enable consumers to purchase print products by interfacing with other products or even advertising pieces. Companies that offer print on demand services will experience the most growth in this respect.
It’s almost time to close the books on year 2019, and look forward to the new year ahead. The past year has taught us, that despite some gloom and doom predictions, print is not dead – in fact it’s alive more than ever. After a 1.8% industry growth in 2018, the industry has grown by 3.5% in 2019, with a total amount of $850 billion in industry revenues in the US alone. Technology innovation is pushing the print industry forward, and the coming year 2020 looks promising.
