Your copy of the 4th drupa ‘Global Trends’ executive summary 2017


You will recall that you joined the drupa Expert Panel made of senior decision makers in Print and related industries from around the world. You were invited to participate in the drupa Global Trends survey in October 2016. We have no record of you participating and only those who have done so get access to the full report. In fact almost 1200 senior decision makers, both printers and suppliers, did participate and made this fourth survey valuable both globally and in terms of regional variations.

As you know, drupa 2016 was a great confidence boost for the global industry. The survey conducted last October gave broad statistical support for that confidence. Such a positive mood is not universal, either in terms of market sectors or geographical regions. Whilst Functional and Packaging print are in expansive mode, Publishing print is in a more defensive mode with Commercial print somewhere in-between. In regional terms, the Middle East has chronic problems undermining performance and Africa and South/Central America remain fragile. Nevertheless, despite the slow recovery from the 2007/8 recession and the impact of digital communications, things are looking up for print.
