Global Commercial Printing - Industry Market Research Report

Global Commercial Printing

Revenue for the Global Commercial Printing industry has experienced slow growth over the past five years, with poor performance in developed markets counteracted by strong performance in developing markets. The primary cause of industry difficulties has been the increasing prevalence of the internet, downstream markets have been able to use online services that transmit information more quickly and affordably than traditional print. Despite the overall printing volume declining in recent years, higher-value consumer packaging and labels in emerging markets have provided stronger revenue growth as manufacturing industries in developing countries become more industrialized. Industry revenue is forecast to grow over the five years to 2022. Persistent and increasing competition from digital and online substitutes will continue to adversely affect industry growth. However, the industry will likely continue to benefit from continued growth and high demand in emerging markets.

This industry comprises companies that are engaged in printing on assorted materials, including paper, metal, glass, plastics, textiles and other materials. Operators may also perform prepress (e.g. platemaking and typesetting) and postpress services (e.g. book binding) in support of printing activities. Major end products include magazines, books, direct mail, catalogues, brochures, signs, labels for packaging, annual reports and business forms.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
