Printing Services in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Printing Services in Canada

The Printing Services industry in Canada has struggled over the five years to 2018 as demand from downstream industries has plummeted. The industry has been one of the economy's worst performing over the past decade due to the shift away from traditional print media channels toward online alternatives. Ultimately, while the Canadian economy is expected to continue to improve over the five years to 2023, there will not likely be any relief on the horizon for the Printing Services industry in Canada. Many of the fundamental factors that have led to the industry's decline remain unresolved as traditional print plays less of a role in the media landscape.

This industry offers prepress and postpress services. Prepress services include image-setting and typesetting for printers, film preparation and plates for printing. Postpress services include functions that support printing activities, such as book binding. This industry does not include companies that are primarily engaged in printing, which are instead included in the Printing industry in Canada (IBISWorld report 32311CA).

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.
