Global Thermal Paper Market to Reach US$ 5.3 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Increasing Product Utilization in Various Industries

August 23, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Thermal Paper Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global thermal Paper market size reached US$ 3.9 Billion in 2021. Thermal paper, also known as an audit roll, refers to a specialty paper used to print information without requiring conventional ink. It is coated with a mixture of heat-sensitive dyes and chemicals that can change color when exposed to heat. It is widely used in lightweight devices, such as fax, point-of-sale (POS) systems, casinos, credit card terminals, cash registers, kiosks, pay-at-the-pump, and mobile printers, to print information quickly and efficiently. In recent years, the increasing number of POS terminals in public facilities has escalated the demand for thermal paper across retail, gaming, food and beverage (F&B), tourism and hospitality, and banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) industries.  

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Thermal Paper Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption for printing labels, tickets, and receipts in grocery stores, shopping malls, gas stations, catering, gaming houses, and lottery systems. In addition, the surging sales of passenger vehicles are positively influencing the utilization of portable POS machines to issue parking tickets, which represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, individuals are nowadays widely opting for digital payment methods at offline stores. This, coupled with the expanding retail sector, is escalating the demand for thermal paper to carry out POS transactions. Furthermore, the rising product adoption across healthcare and pharmaceutical industries in Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and the surging need for detailed descriptions of ingredients in food and beverage products to adhere to stringent labeling regulations are some of the other factors propelling the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 5.3 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
