DETROIT, Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratview Research announces the launch of a new research report on Printing Blankets Market by Blanket Type (Conventional Blanket, UV Blanket, Combination Blanket, and Others), By Substrate Type (Paper & Board, Metal, Textile, and Others), By Application Type (Packaging, Commercial, Newspaper, and Others), and By Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2019-2024.

This comprehensive report, from Stratview Research, studies the printing blankets market over the trend period of 2013 to 2018 and the forecast period of 2019 to 2024. The report estimates current and future demand for printing blankets at the global, regional, as well as country-level. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for the market participants as well as investors in the identification of low-hanging fruits available in the market as well as formulate growth strategies.

Printing blanket is an imperative part of the offset printing process as it is the final point of contact between the printed substrate and press. The main function of a blanket is to transfer the inked image from plate to the substrate in the most efficient manner. The substrate may vary from paper to aluminum sheet to textile to any other substrates, such as plastics or metals. In early days, blankets were made from pure rubber that gave a much superior quality of image than lithographic plates used at that time, but it had its drawbacks. In the 1930s, the origination of synthetic rubber eliminated the problems inherent from pure rubber, previously used. Today, blankets are made by using different synthetic rubbers to increase their resistance. The primary synthetic rubber used today are Buna N, Neoprene, along with NVR (Nitrile Rubber), and EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Rubber) to increase the durability of the blanket. In order to provide additional strength to the blanket, a backing with either fabric or metal is provided.

As per Stratview Research, the global printing blankets market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 855.6 million in 2024. Organic growth of the offset printing market, expanding the packaging industry, growing advertising industry, and increased focus towards the development of eco-friendly blankets are the major factors, catapulting the growth of printing blankets market.

Based on the blanket type, the market is segmented into conventional printing blankets, UV printing blankets, combination printing blankets, and others. Conventional printing blanket is likely to remain the most dominant blanket type in the market over the next five years. High-quality print at a very competitive price is the major factor behind the dominance of conventional blankets. UV printing blanket is likely to expand at the highest rate over the same period, driven by its ability to resist the UV inks and helps in UV printing.

Based on the substrate type, paper & paperboard dominates the market and is expected to maintain its vanguard in the market during the forecast period as well. Paper & paperboard printing majorly includes printing of newspaper, magazines, and corrugated boxes, used for packaging. Asia-pacific is the largest market for newspaper, magazines, and corrugated boxes, owing to the huge population base coupled with meteorically increasing disposable income and expanding economies especially of China and India.

The research's findings suggest that packaging is expected to remain the most dominant application segment of the market during the forecast period. Food & beverages, cosmetics & toiletries, and healthcare are the major applications of the packaging printing blankets market. Increase in the demand for sustainable packaging and flexible packaging along with cost-effectiveness and reduced packaging waste is the prime factor, driving the growth of the packaging segment. All the application types are expected to witness healthy growth during the forecast period.
