drupa is inviting participants to take part in the International Global Trends survey

drupa has been surveying international print service providers and suppliers since 2013 to shed light on the industry and global megatrends, market potential, and innovations in all key areas of the print industry. Messe Düsseldorf has commissioned the independent market research companies Printfuture/UK and Wissler & Partner/Switzerland to conduct the trend surveys.

How has the global printing industry changed? What impact have the pandemic, supply and resource shortages, and shifts in demand impact on the industry? The 8th Global Trends report illuminates these and many more questions. For this purpose, the world’s leading trade fair for printing technologies is activating its renowned international drupa expert panel and at the same time inviting other interested print service providers and manufacturers along the entire value chain to participate in this worldwide industry panel. The results are expected to be published in autumn as the 8th edition of the drupa Global Trends Report.

Participants will receive the full version of drupa Global Trends report

The survey is aimed specifically at executives and experts from print service providers and the machinery or supplier industry. Registration as a panelist is possible until 31 March through the link, and the survey will take place in April. All participants will receive the full version of the drupa Global Trends Report and benefits in the run-up to and during drupa 2024.

“In view of the continuous change and further developments in the print and packaging industry, current, representative market data and assessments of global industry participants are more relevant than ever,” explains Sabine Geldermann, director Print Technologies Messe Düsseldorf. “The drupa Global Trends Report is a valuable tool for highlighting market dynamics and the corresponding impact on investment plans and growth potential. With this in mind, we cordially invite manufacturers and print service providers to register to provide an overall picture of the industry.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
