Printing in the US

The Printing industry's struggles have continued over the past five years as digital products and services have increasingly displaced traditional printed materials. Printers were historically central to both publishing and advertising, however over the past two decades, rapid technological change has upended both markets and sent the industry into structural decline. During the next five years, the industry will continue to struggle as digital media replaces traditional paper products. Meanwhile, profit margins are expected to slightly increase, mainly due to a drop in labor expenses as a result of industry consolidation. However, the industry remains firmly embedded in its decline phase, as falling demand for print is a structural trend that is expected to continue regardless of anticipated improvements in the overall US economy.

Companies in this industry primarily print on paper, textile products, metal, glass, plastic and other materials, excluding 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.

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.
