This Market Report examines the UK printing industry, with particular focus on the key trends and issues impacting the market, the leading competitors, and the value of the industry over the past 5 years, in addition to providing forecasts for the industry up until the year 2018. Data from the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) is used throughout this report as a representation of the total printing industry, with Key Note estimating that the value of printing in the UK has dropped by 0.4% between 2012 and 2013.

The printing industry is best examined when subdivided into the end products manufactured by the printing press, namely advertising literature; letterheads, business cards, programmes, tickets, etc.; books, brochures, leaflets, etc.; cartons; magazines and journals; printed labels; security printing; newspapers; business forms; and postcards and greetings cards. Furthermore, the report also covers other printing methods of bookbinding; printing onto non-paper/board; graphic services; composition and platemaking; and other printing. Owing to the broad range of printed products within the UK, the printing industry offers a business-to-business (B2B) service for a large proportion of the industries active within the UK.
