The report delves deeper into several crucial aspects of the global chambered doctor blade systems market. It includes a detailed discussion of existing growth factors and restraints. Future growth opportunities and challenges that impact the chambered doctor blade systems industry are comprehensively addressed in the report.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Overview

A doctor blade is a piece of mechanical device used in the printing industry. It helps in the removal of excessive ink from the printing cylinder while letting some ink stay on the cylinder. Currently, there are multiple types of doctor blade systems and one of them is a chambered doctor blade system. In this form, the ink component is enclosed using two doctor blades supported by two end seals. This entire unit runs against the anilox roll, the cylindrical unit, and the central piece of the printing technique, and contains ink inside the chamber body. There is high demand for chambered doctor blade systems on central impression (CI) and high-speed presses since it allows for faster run-time while maintaining cleanliness as the risk of ink slinging is greatly reduced in an enclosed system. Another significant attribute of chambered doctor blade systems is less exposure to environmental factors leading to fewer incidences of ink contamination, a trait that single-blade systems are frequently plagued with.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Growth Drivers

Growing demand for printing efficiency in end-user verticals to drive market growth

The global chambered doctor blade systems market is projected to grow during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for printing efficiency in end-user verticals such as packaging, advertising & marketing, publishing, education, and others. Chambered doctor blade systems are designed to improve production efficiency. Open single squeegee has a normal operating speed of 120 meters/minute. If this speed limit is crossed, the system will start to reject glue or ink which impacts the performance output. However, with the use of a chambered version, ink or glue rejection during printing can be reduced and the operation efficiency of the system automatically increases. Moreover, open doctor blade systems are highly prone to contamination since the glue or ink is constantly exposed to the air. On one side, there is a chance of ink contamination while on the other side, volatile substances from the ink may pollute the air. These problems can be effectively targeted using chambered doctor blade systems.

Higher demand for effective printing techniques in the packaging industry to contribute significant revenue

The printing industry has become an integral part of the packaging sector. There is a growing demand for effective printing techniques in the packaging industry as companies are seeking solutions that are functional as well as help in generating higher consumer engagement. For instance, in November 2022, industry partners Flexo Concepts and TRESU announced the launch of 2 new doctor blade printing systems which allow printers to change between plastic and steel for ink delivery system optimization. TRESU launched the E-Line Chamber Doctor Blade System alongside TruPoint Orange® doctor blade by Flexo Concepts.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Restraints

Higher competition from single-doctor blade systems to restrict market expansion

The global chambered doctor blade systems market may register restricted growth due to the increasing competition from single-doctor blade systems that are currently highly popular among Corrugated Converters. Several factors are responsible for the single doctor blade system taking the lead in terms of revenue across several industries. The primary concern is the high cost of chambered doctor blade systems when compared to their counterparts. Moreover, the single doctor blade version offers effective metering across a range of print applications. It allows companies to spend limited resources on consumables since single-doctor blade systems function with just one blade and do not need end seals which helps in saving cost, which is currently the goal of many companies to survive the highly competitive market.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Opportunities

Rising innovation in the printing industry to create growth opportunities

The global chambered doctor blade systems industry may come across higher growth avenues led by the rising innovation in the printing industry by players across sizes including small and large firms. For instance, in February 2022, Koenig & Bauer Celmaach, a leading solutions provider for rotary die-cutting and flexographic printing, introduced a breakthrough innovation in the form of carbon fiber chambered doctor blade systems. The unit is equipped with an innovative magnetic system that allows blade fastening. Some attributes of the new model include a high strength-to-weight ratio, fast blade-changeover & ink clean-up, absence of structure-related vibrations, and higher resistance to corrosion even in long-term treatments. Additionally, rising partnerships between industry players may trigger higher growth. In May 2019, Apex North America entered a partnership with Agergaard Graphic Supplies for the supply of end seals and doctor blades. This move has assisted Apex in becoming one of the comprehensive solutions providers in the industry for doctor blade systems.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Challenges

Excessive digitalization to challenge the market expansion

Global chambered doctor blade systems industry growth may face harsh challenges due to excessive digitalization in the printing industry. The use of digital media has impacted the demand for traditional printing methods including flexographic printing which is one of the largest consumers of chambered doctor blade systems. Additionally, the cost of raw materials used in conventional printing techniques is on the rise. This includes products such as ink, paper, and printing equipment which directly impact business operations and delivery rates. A recent report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that due to excessive digitalization, the employment rate in the printing industry has reduced by 10% between 2011 and 2021.

Chambered Doctor Blade Systems Market: Segmentation

The global chambered doctor blade systems market is segmented based on application, type, and region.

Based on application, the global market is segmented into corrugated box printing slotting machine and flexographic printing machine, and others. The largest application of chambered doctor blade systems is in flexographic printing machines. Factors including color consistency, less cleaning associated cost, higher run time, and significant control over ink film thickness are the reasons for greater segmental adoption. The rising use of carbon fiber, which is around 300 times stronger than aluminum, could assist in further growth.

Based on type, the chambered doctor blade systems industry divisions are dual-blade systems and single-blade systems. The chambered doctor blade systems typically consist of dual blades and allow minimum ink waste as opposed to single-blade systems. This directly impacts color consistency in the final print and can fulfill the need for intricate details that are currently the demand of modern printing works. However, the complex number of components also causes an increase in the total cost of the machinery. Flexographic printing machines can cost between USD 6000 to USD 40000.
