The global coding and marking systems are divided based on technology into coding printers, including Laser, PALM valve jet(PVJ), hot melt inkjet(HMJ), continuous inkjet(CIJ), thermal inkjet (TIJ), print and apply labelers, thermal transfer overprinting, laser coding and marking, and print and apply labelers.

CIJ technology is extensively used among all technology due to its abundance of installation. Thermal transfer printers are anticipated to experience the fastest growth throughout the forecast period, and this technology is also projected to create the highest revenue during the estimated time.

The laser segment was second in 2021, with a nearly 40% share of the global market, after the CIJ segment. During the projected period, market share gains in the coding and marking technology sectors for laser and TIJ are anticipated. The laser technology has no consumables like ink and expected to grow by CAGR 9% during the forecast period.

Insight by Product Mix

On the basis of product mix the market of coding and marking systems is bifurcated into printer ink cartridges, toner cartridge, Viskoflex, paints, surface viral cleaner and other pertinent product mix. The consumables market of coding and marking system had the sale of 45% of all market sales in 2021. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the global coding and marking market for consumables saw an increase in demand due to the enormous need for ink and other consumables from the healthcare, food, and beverage sectors.

Insight by End User

The coding and marking systems market on the basis of end user is bifurcated into F&B, Pharmaceutical, Construction, Personal & Homecare, Electrical & Electronics, Automotive, Chemical & Fertilizers and others. Post covid-19 coding and marking systems market is dominated by F&B and pharmaceutical end-user and F&B sector is anticipated to have the highest share during the projection period. The reason behind it is the coding and marking on all consumables and healthcare products has become mandatory by the law also.

Additionally demographics, rising investment, stringent government restrictions, and a move toward urbanization also impact on the market growth. The growth of end-user industries is also being fueled by a number of additional factors, such as shifting consumer preferences regarding product consumption, rising demand for sustainable packaging, rising demand for attractive packaging, and more. These factors ultimately increase the demand for coding and marking in the global market.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The primary growth drivers of global coding and marking system are the expansion in retail market and rising demand for FMCG products. Global coding and marking systems are expanding all around the world as a result of increased regulatory pressures from governmental organizations to meet market-specific industrial standards. It has been noted that the current market for environmentally friendly marking systems is expanding as a result of the launch of numerous marking tools made of biodegradable resin.

Automotive industry is also one of the prominent growth drivers of coding and marking system. This industry prevent the sale of counterfeit component and frequently uses coding and marking systems to code part numbers or anti-counterfeit labels on vehicle machinery.

Moreover, environment friendly coding technology plays the vital growth driver role uplift the coding and marking sector.  Manufacturers of coding and marking systems are required to reduce the use of hazardous solvents like methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), which lower the content of volatile organic compounds and prevent smearing, as a result of the regulations of the Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) committee.


Coding and marking devices are tending to be very expensive. So, coding and marking systems installation into place is challenging. All supply chain participants, especially the smaller companies, might not have the financial means to set up the infrastructure necessary to adopt coding and marking systems. Therefore, it is anticipated that the market's expansion over the forecast period will be constrained by the high cost associated with the coding and marking equipment.

This market study on coding and marking systems includes information on recent developments, trade laws, import-export analysis, production analysis, value chain optimization, market share, and the effects of domestic and local market participants. It also analyses opportunities for new revenue streams, regulatory changes, market size, category market expansions, application niches and dominance, product approvals, and product launches.


Government norms and increase product innovation has made to opportunity for coding and marking system to grow.  The government norms all across the globe mandate the marking on F&B and pharmaceutical products. Because of the government's stringent regulations, end users are now adopting coding and marking systems to guarantee accurate labeling of the produced goods
