    Commercial Print Services market report transcript


    Global Commercial Print Services Industry Outlook

    • The global commercial print market was valued at $727–731 billion in 2019
    • The market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of ~0.6 percent between 2020 and 2022
    • Regions such as North America and Western Europe and some parts of APAC, such as China and Japan, have high market maturity, and the commercial print market is expected to decline in North America and Western Europe, due to an increase in digitization
    • The future growth of the commercial print industry would be driven by parts of APAC, the MEA and LATAM, owing to considerably less internet penetration and a high customer base

    Global Commercial Print Services - Market Maturity

    • Commercial print penetration is still low outside Europe, North America and parts of APAC
    • About 52–57 percent of the total commercial print market is contributed by the developed markets, such as North America and Europe. China and Japan are the next biggest markets
    • The central and southern parts of APAC and parts of LATAM and the MEA are driving the commercial print market, owing to a large consumer base, increase in spending by buyers, and low internet penetration compared to the developed markets

      Global Commercial Print Services - Industry Trends

    • Commercial print service providers are increasing their service portfolios by adding value-added services, such as data management, BTL marketing consulting and 3D printing, in order to provide end-to-end solutions to buyers
    • With the help of digital printing machines, faster turnaround is possible, facilitating print-on-demand and hence, avoiding wastage to achieve cost savings

    Global Commercial Print - Drivers and Constraints

    To counter the effect of the digitization of commercial print, service providers are adding value-added services, such as data management, consulting and e-publishing to retain their clients. However, major segments, such as labels, packaging materials and books for educational institutes, still have sustained demand

    Drivers

    • Value-added services: A wide range of value-added services, like mailing, fulfillment, consulting, graphic design and data management services, enables print suppliers to deliver innovative services to their buyers. Suppliers in the market are competing with each other by providing value-added services to their clients at competitive prices, and they help buyers consolidate multiple print-related activities to a single service provider
    • Potential industry sectors: The demand for print services is primarily driven by the retail, financial services, publishing and food and beverage industries. Demand for on-demand print materials, packaging, wide-format printing, digital printing and other promotional materials by the retail, food and beverage industries is a key driver
    • Eco-friendly practices: The introduction of eco-friendly practices, like soy ink instead of the traditional petroleum-based ink, has reduced the printing industry's impact on the environment and has helped both the buyers and suppliers control their carbon footprints

    Constraints

    • Increase in digitization: With the increase in digitization, it is expected that buyers will adopt more electronic versions of printing materials, such as e-annual reports, e-vouchers and e-catalogues, or use more online channels, like email, the internet or websites, rather than printing materials to target consumers, which, in turn, will affect the demand for print-related items
    • Dependence on feedstock prices: The print industry is dependant on feedstock prices, such as the price of paper, inks, solvents, etc. Price fluctuations for these items have an impact on the print industry. The volatility of the raw material prices poses a risk to the buyers because it has a direct impact on the final prices

    3-D Printing

    Printing is expanding from flat sheet printing to 3-D printing. Commercial printers are technically upgrading themselves to capitalize on the same. 3-D printed materials have greater likelihood of being noted.

    Hybrid Print Technologies

    Print industry is migrating towards integration with digital channels: computer-to-print plate automation. This technology allows the designer to send finished image files to electronic plates which can read them and help execute complex projects faster.
