After the 2008 economic downturn, the manufacturing sector is reviving. A large number of manufacturing companies around the world are implementing automation and process streamlining to reduce time and material waste, thereby improving efficiency and output. Barcoding is one such technique that is becoming more popular. This process has significantly reduced production time in the manufacturing process, driving demand for barcode printers.

Barcodes have become the de facto standard for storing and labeling product information. Retailers all over the world use barcodes to simplify the recording and sale of supplies and commodities. Barcodes imprinted on labels adhere to products and record information such as product count, date of manufacture, date supplied to the retailer, selling price, and so on.

The information is retrieved and monitored when these products are scanned. This entire process, which takes only a few seconds, not only increases efficiency but also reduces errors. This has aided retailers in keeping track of their products and inventory on store floors and in warehouses.

However, the threat of RFID tags as barcode label substitutes and the low compatibility of barcode printers with various operating systems act as restraints in the global barcode printer market.
