Printing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Printing in Canada

The Printing industry has endured several challenges over the past five years, the most significant of which has been rising competition from digital media. As readers and ad dollars have moved online, publishers and advertisers alike have reduced their investments in traditional print products. Additionally, digital printing has emerged as the industry's fastest-growing segment. Seeking greater customization and more specific consumer targeting, industry clients have demanded print jobs in smaller quantities. Over the next five years, offshoring trends and Canadian consumers' shift to digital media will continue to constrain industry demand. Exports are also expected to fall as the dollar rebounds and US print demand drops.

This industry includes companies that primarily provide commercial printing services including lithographic, gravure, flexographic, letterpress and digital printing services. Printers also provide screen printing on stationery, labels, apparel and textile products. This industry also includes companies that print and bind books and pamphlets without publishing.

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.
