Technology analysts forecast the global portable printer market to grow at a CAGR of close to 18% during the forecast period, according to their latest market research report.

The introduction of advanced security solutions in portable printers is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global portable printer market 2019-2023. The unprotected printers are the easy target points for hackers and cybersecurity issues. Cybersecurity issues can range from hackers retrieving saved documents from a printer's memory, targeting printers to launching denial-of-service (DoS) and installing malware for remote printer control. Therefore, companies are increasingly focusing on establishing robust security measures for ensuring the integrity of their printer systems. For instance, in October 2018, HP announced the release of security solutions called HP FutureSmart firmware and Immersive Analytics Service for HP enterprise-class printers and MFPs.
