Market expansion is due to the increasing utilization of POS terminals for monetary transactions across various settings, such as warehouses, retail outlets, and supermarkets. Thermal papers play a pivotal role in this context, primarily employed for printing receipts at the POS terminals and to create tags utilized by industries like pharmaceuticals and food and beverages for packaging and labeling their final products. The preference for thermal papers stems from their economical production costs and ease of maintenance, as they don't require ribbons and ink in the printing process, setting them apart from alternative printing methods.

Growth is fueled by the expanding utilization of retail outlets and supermarkets in emerging economies like China, Brazil, and India. Additionally, the growing requirement for specialty paper for packaging purposes within the e-commerce and logistics sectors will contribute to the market's expansion. Nonetheless, the ascent of digitalization and the emergence of substitute products will constrain the market's growth trajectory.

The Middle East and African region are witnessing an increasing demand for food and beverage, FMCG, and electronics products, driven by population growth and urbanization, particularly in key markets like Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar. This surge in demand is projected to lead to higher utilization of POS terminals, tags, and labels. Additionally, the region's supportive initiatives to encourage domestic investments are anticipated to contribute positively to the market growth in this area.
