Printing Machinery & Equipment Manufacturing

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry manufacture printing machinery and equipment, including printing presses and binding machinery. Major companies include HP, Presstek, and Xerox (all based in the US); Canon, Komori, and Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho (all based in Japan); and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, Koenig & Bauer, and manroland Goss web systems (all based in Germany).


Demand is driven by commercial print volume, which depends primarily on advertising and other business needs for printed material. Profitability of individual companies depends primarily on manufacturing efficiencies. Large companies enjoy economies of scale in purchasing and manufacturing. Small companies can compete effectively by serving niche markets, such as envelope printing. The US industry is concentrated: the 50 largest companies generate about 80% of revenue.


Major products of printing machinery and equipment manufacturers include printing presses (about 20%), printing trades machinery (about 30%), and parts, attachments, and accessories (about 40%). Other products include binding machinery and industrial etching and engraving machines.
