New market trends of printing recently, the so-called electronic labels related to radio frequency identification (RFID) in foreign magazines will become a new big market for printers and ink manufacturers. Recently, a conference on radio frequency identification (R · friction times 10 (9) 99fid) and electronic labels was held in Cambridge, England. The experts attending the conference generally believed that the demand for this new, low-cost technology is growing rapidly. The conference predicted that the output value of the world's electronic label market would reach 4billion by 2007 and 10billion by 2013

according to statistics, in 2003, the sales volume of electronic labels in the world was 1.5 billion tons, which is expected to reach billions of tons in 2007 and at least 5billion tons in six years. However, it is impossible to predict the proportion of electronic labels produced by printing plants using electronic ink and existing printing equipment once the demand reaches billions of tons. It is believed that this largely depends on the success of the suppliers of microprocessors and electronic materials in the development of plastic chips, and also depends on the application of viable and lowest cost alternatives to silicon semiconductors

conductive polyester has the required softness, including strong acid resistance and most organic softness and processability, making printing a feasible method for large-scale and low-cost production of electronic labels and related products. However, even if the technical problem of the development of conductive polyester is solved, it is doubtful whether the developed conductive polyester can be effectively sold at a low price, because it needs to compensate a lot of R & D expenses, and its price will not be very low. Therefore, the existing RFID label producers who plan to become the main players in this large market are studying mass production methods similar to web printing

opportunities for printers

in the low-cost electronic age, printers are still competitive. The main advantage of printing is its speed, which is 10 times faster than the method used by RFID label producers. Therefore, the cost is much lower

the biggest breakthrough of the printing industry is the electronic display technology. Some companies have introduced a large number of printing methods and systems, and some companies have successfully experimented with a new generation of electronic color rendering ink on greeting cards. This also sends a clear signal for us - we need to find more reliable and environmentally friendly materials to replace some companies' research on the display of numbers and portraits on cards and labels according to the ink discoloration when low energy is applied

in the initial stage of electronic label production, the printing method will be mainly used, but the mass production method, such as flexographic printing and gravure printing, should be used in the end. At present, printing plants and electronic ink manufacturers can produce electronic labels with a micro processing capacity of nearly 100bit, which is enough to provide information similar to that provided by bar codes, such as manufacturer, product serial number and batch number. Once the electronic tag can provide a certain amount of information, RFID will at least replace the bar codes used on boxes and pallets

it is reported that in 2003, there were about 500million RFID tags used in logistics transportation all over the world. Once such labels are applied to pallets and containers, the demand in this area alone will reach 2billion a year. If the application in air baggage transportation is expanded, the demand for electronic labels will increase by 200million a year

retail industry

some chain stores and consumer goods manufacturers with global brands have planned to use RFID tags on boxes and pallets in the next few years. Some companies are conducting experiments to introduce RFID tags into warehouses and implement the electronic product code (EPC) standard, which means that 5billion tags will be required. By the beginning of 2006, all suppliers should be able to track all boxes in Wal Mart's distribution network
