The 6th drupa Global Trends Report shows that the global print industry as a whole is in a stable condition.

The 5th Global Trends Report, published at the end of April, is well established as a unique annual survey of the state of print in all markets across the world. However by definition it cannot analyse all issues in the depth the drupa team would like. Hence the Spotlight report will take one important topic each year and ask our expert panel to examine it in more detail. This year it is the impact of inkjet printing.

Printers and suppliers from the majority of market sectors reported growing confidence in their companies’ economic performance. The opportunity was taken this year to track patterns of performance over the years. Packaging remains the most buoyant market and there has been a steady improvement in confidence over the five years amongst Commercial printers. Functional printers were following a similar positive story but there was a puzzling increase in uncertainty this year for both printers and suppliers to this market. Publishing printers probably face the most challenging strategic changes and there is a decline in assurance this year, despite the reducing threat from E-books.
