Global Commercial Printing - Industry Market Research Report

Global Commercial Printing

Commercial printers have endured a contraction, with poor performance in the world's developed markets being partially offset by growth in developing markets. Developed markets have contended with high levels of market saturation and an increased preference among consumers for digital media, which has cut into demand for publishing, a key downstream industry. Online adoption and technologies like smartphones and tablet devices have constrained potential gains and diminished profitability. However, continued growth in sales of printed products in emerging markets has benefited the industry, alongside a growing focus on digital printing. Revenue is expected to contract at a CAGR of 2.3% to $350.3 billion through the end of 2023, despite forecast growth of 1.6% in 2023, when profit will account for 3.5% of revenue.

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, such as platemaking and typesetting, in addition to postpress services, such as 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.
