By 2030, the print landscape will be very different to the pre-covid world. From 2015 – 2030, the volume of the global print and printed packaging market is expected to fall by just over 15%. However, the value of the market will grow by nearly 6.8%, largely due to changes in the product mix.
Covid is having a significant impact on the print outputs across the world, with falls in print demand and changes in consumer behaviour seen. The economic impact is expected to create permanent changes in print demand, and will accelerate some of the long-term trends impacting the print industry. Some print companies and suppliers will fail; however others will thrive- with a focus on automation, efficiency and service; or perhaps through innovation and diversification to widen the range of products and services they offer.
