Market Overview

The Latin American print on demand market size witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.2% during the forecast period (2023-2031).

Printing on demand is a technology and business practice that allows printing just one copy or a small number of copies of a book or other document. This is done by waiting to make copies of the book (or another document) until the company gets an order. Before digital printing was invented, "print on demand" was impossible because it was too expensive to make a single copy using traditional printing methods like offset and letterpress. This stopped other companies from developing their versions of the build-to-order business plan.


  • Apparel dominated the market by product category.
