The tactile printing market in MEA is expected to grow from US$ 65.90 million in 2021 to US$ 99.19 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2028. The National Braille Press formed the Accessible Graphics Consortium (AGC), in 2021, to form a collaboration of a community of university researchers, teachers, and organizations engaged in offering common and standardized tactile graphics for visually impaired people. The aim of the consortium is to confer greater tactile graphic literacy through curriculum development, research, and improved production methods. It would analyze, collect advance, and disseminate best practices to the visually disabled community while focusing on recognized program for training tactile graphics in the stream of science, technology, engineering, arts, math (STEAM). The AGC would also form an Advisory Group to support these initiatives. The new consortium will work together to bring a unified approach for producing, teaching, and learning tactile graphics. Furthermore, developing countries lack the facilities and access to technology to assist the visually impaired community. Thus, increasing awareness about the advantages of tactile printing would boost the manufacturing of tactile printers to generate tactile graphics for various sectors. Such initiatives are likely to provide improved access through tactile graphics to the community of visually impaired people, thereby providing new opportunities for the growth of tactile printing market players. Additionally, upcoming of technologically and physically advanced tactile printers is the among other major factors driving the growth of the MEA tactile printing market.

Based on end user, the MEA tactile printing market for the braille users segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period.There is an ever-growing demand for tactile printed materials among Braille users, especially in the education and employment sector.

It has become crucial to provide children accessible versions of visual information at the same time as their sighted peers.The introduction of low-cost tactile graphics has created a noticeable improvement in the quality of education provided to visually impaired learners.

This has resulted in the surge in integration of tactile graphics in books, coloring books, maps, and greeting cards.Tactile illustrated children’s books and cards are designed to make them more effective, interesting, and safe for use by the visually impaired people.

Further, growing awareness among people, businesses, and governments to have public buildings and services that are accessible to everybody is driving the adoption of tactile printing to aid Braille readers. This has augmented the adoption of tactile printing products in the quick and cost-effective production of durable Braille signage, tactile signs, etc., in required sizes to fit in spaces with different dimensions. For instance, Roland DG’s LED UV printers build up layers of gloss ink to create textures, raised designs, and Braille text in signage for visually impaired.
Major economies in the MEA that are facing challenges due to the COVID-19 outbreak include Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and Kuwait, among others.The region is anticipated to report a swift decline in the supply of raw materials and products, which are procured from various manufacturers in North America, Europe, and MEA; these regions have halted or scaled down their production activities, subsequently lowering the export of components and products to other regions.

As per a 2021 report by Labels & Labeling, the pharmaceutical, healthcare, and hygiene products segment saw a multifold increase in demand in 2020.The demand for food and personal care labels remained unchanged, but the cosmetic sector saw a drop in demand.

Thus, the region is witnessing a slight decline in the tactile printing market growth.
