The drupa Global Trends Reports will return in 2023
After 2 years of disruption and chaos, all the existing projections and statistics for the future of the global print industry are fundamentally flawed. In these rapidly changing and uncertain times it is essential that companies have the very latest trend information to make sensible business decisions. As a result we are pleased to announce that the drupa Global Trends report will be back in 2023.
We believe it is now time to bring some order to the chaos and make sense of how the global print industry has been impacted and is recovering, across different regions and markets. We all know significant strategic shifts are occurring - diversification, mergers, consolidation, labour shortages, supply disruptions, market specific shifts in demand etc. What we all need is objective data to understand how these shifts will affect us, and the consequential changes this will have on investment and growth.
The 8th Global Trends survey will be issued early in 2023 and the results published later in the year. We are keen that as many leading members of the global print community as possible should participate. Printers and suppliers, plus exhibitors at past drupas are being invited to join the research panel.
In the short term you will be asked to participate in the next Trends survey early in 2023. This should take no more than 20 minutes. In due course you may be asked to participate in further surveys in the build-up to drupa 2024, but we guarantee to ask you for no more than 2 surveys a year and you can decline any survey if you wish.
What do I get out of it?
By participating in the survey, you will receive a free executive summary in your chosen language plus a free copy of the full report in English (Valued at € 499).
What languages are available and how do I take part?
German, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese.
