Key Market Trends

BFSI Sector is Expected to Grow at a Significant Rate

  • In the BFSI sector, printed signage is usually used in various places, including ATM (banner signs and posters), interior, wall graphics, and a wall projection.
  • The banking industry in North America is growing significantly, leading to the growth in the number of ATMs, owing to the increasing population and the need for cash dispensing machines.
  • Additionally, the country has a larger tourist population, which increases the need for cash transactions, propelling the demand for ATMs in the region.
  • The sector is increasingly using signage solutions to enhance the in-branch customer experience. The strategically located displays can inform customers of new services, help in reducing wait time, and improve the overall perception of the bank.
  • However, digital signage has a high penetration rate, owing to its convenience, low-cost material, and high reach, which is likely to negatively affect the market growth in this industry over the forecast period. Indoor digital signage draws over 400% of more views than static displays and increases engagement, as per the Embed Signage ( an Information Technology and Services company).
  • Earlier, banking buildings had printed signage for various actions, such as direction, counter, and parking.
  • However, the companies are highly investing an enormous amount of money in digital signage, which is expected to affect the printed signage market on a negative note in North America.
Printed Signage Market Key Trends

United States to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • Changes in the strategies and structure of the retail industry will directly affect the market demand for printed signage. The growing competition for brick-and-mortar stores from online retailers resulted in the traditional retail model changing to compete in the new shopping landscape.
  • Additionally, consumers feel more confident and spend more on goods and services, boosting the demand for promotional signage as brand owners and retailers compete for a boom in sales.
  • Innovations are becoming the key to market penetration. According to the NRF (National Retail Federation), the total retail sales in the United States amounted to USD 3.79 trillion in 2019, up from around USD 3.66 trillion. Additionally, the retail sales in the country are expected to increase by 3.1% Y-o-Y during the forecast period.
  • The restaurant industry in the United States is also a prominent contributor to the printed signage market’s growth. According to the national restaurant association, there are currently more than one million restaurants in the country with 14.7 million employees – one in every ten working Americans (which is expected to reach 16.3 million employees by 2027) and contributes approximately 4% to the US GDP.
  • However, competition from digital signage might challenge the market’s growth. Digital signage also gives flexibility to the retailers enhancing customer engagement with the brand. Digital signage also captures more views than printed signage. The ability to change the content and schedule or arrange advertisements based on the client’s requirement are the factors leading to the slowdown of the market studied.

It is a low-investment, value for money signage printer capable of versatile printing at high speed, thereby maximizing the business potential of the print service provider.
