By Working Mode- Segment Analysis
By working mode E-Jet Printing Market is segmented as Pulse cone Jet mode and Continuous Cone Jet mode. The continuous cone jet mode is witnessing a significant growth in the market. The ejection mode is maintained by applying DC voltage in the continuous cone jet mode. Through the electric field force the continuous liquid with a continuous flow rate is rapidly pulled from the nozzle. Owing to this the printing can be done in the substrate in form of lines. The continuous cone jet mode is therefore used for both conductive and non conductive substrate. Furthermore, this working mode is widely used in manufacturing as printing can be done with large range of viscosity through this. Printing can be done in uneven surface and conformal surface through continuous cone jet mode.
By End Users - Segment Analysis
By End Users the market is segmented into Manufacturing, Printed Electronics, Biomedical, Photonics, Optics and Others. The Manufacturing sector is witnessing a significant growth in the market owing to the wide use of e-jet printers in macro/micro scale manufacturing. The E-jet printing technology provides feasibility to implement the additive manufacturing of multi-scale and multi-material with low cost and high efficiency. The development of new materials like function gradient materials, embedded electronic products, wearable devices, biomimetic materials and others requires multi material and multi material manufacturing. Owing to this the E-Jet printers are widely used for manufacturing purposes. These factors are fueling the growth of the market.

Challenges – E-Jet Printer Market
- Effect of distance between nozzle and substrate Challenge:
Although there are many advantages of E-jet printing there is a printing effect that arises due to the distance between nozzle and substrate. Owing to the decrease of distance between nozzle and substrate the electric field formed between the substrate and nozzle is much enhanced, especially at the tip of the nozzle. This causes limitation in macro/micro scale manufacturing of E-jet printing technology. This factor is hindering the growth of the market.
