The Global Printed Signage Market is forecasted to continue the steady growth that is witnessed since 2017, primarily driven by the ease of usage and deployment of printed signages without any additional operational and maintenance costs. Printed signage also boasts a longer lifespan than any other form of signage solution. In January 2022, Lintec Corporation acquired Morgan Adhesives Company, LLC headquarters in the USA and entered into a business agreement with Spinnaker Holding Inc., and its wholly-owned subsidiary Spinnaker Coating, LLC.

Lower Deployment Costs and Increase Usage of Printed Signage is Major Growth Drivers for the Global Printed Signage market.

Cost-effectiveness is the primary factor that drives the growth of the printed signage market, as it offers low-cost and efficient signage solutions for many industries.
