5th drupa Global Trends report

01 May 2018

The 5th drupa annual Global Trends report has been published. Printers and suppliers from the majority of market sectors reported growing confidence in their companies’ economic performance. Plans for print investment in 2018 depend on the market sector, with Flexo the most popular choice in packaging.
The transition to digital print continues but slowly, with Functional printers now largely dependent on digital print but few packaging printers reporting significant digital sales as yet. 60% of Functional printers report more than 50% of turnover is digital, whilst just 12% of packaging printers report more than 25% of turnover is digital (News Item drupa, 12 April 2018).
