About This Report


The Printing industry, which includes large commercial printers and local print shops, endured a variety of challenges over the past five years. Consumers are increasingly favoring digital alternatives to printed materials, such as online media. Decreasing sales volumes and the application of downward pressure on unit selling prices have also hampered industry profit during the past five years. Printing requires substantial capital investment in new technology to remain competitive in times of excess capacity. Due to the relatively low amount of customer orders, overcapacity has contributed to the long-term trend of industry consolidation.

Companies in this industry are primarily engaged in printing on paper, textile products, metal, glass, plastic and other materials, with the exception of fabric. Industry operators engage a variety of printing processes including lithographic, gravure, screen, flexographic, digital and letterpress. This industry does not include publishers that also perform printing, nor does it comprise companies that perform prepress or postpress services without traditional printing.

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