COVID-19 will create permanent changes in printing demand. This new report builds upon solid socio-economic data and expert technical/market insight to assess the magnitude of these changes.
The report presents three scenarios, and models how the markets are likely to evolve in the immediate short-term and over the next five years, based on an in-depth assessment for each printed product, print process and geographic region.
The three scenarios – mild impact, probable impact and pessimistic – each show a fall in print demand, with labels and packaging least affected. Publishing output will fall most accelerating the existing decline, although there are short-term boosts for books. In commercial print lower marketing spend by businesses in recession depresses demand with volume and values falling, packaging and labels will grow but at a lower rate than previously forecast.
As part of the methodology, Smithers experts – led by Dr. Sean Smyth - interviewed printing and packaging companies across the global value chain (including equipment, paper, ink and plate suppliers) to ensure the market data and analysis is grounded in reality. The economic foundation of the model is the April forecast from the IMF.
There will be major industry re-structuring with weak print companies and suppliers failing as demand falls. Remaining companies will innovate and diversify, producing PPE equipment an early example as companies collaborate and widen the range of products and services they offer, with routes to market changing toward on-line.
This report is a critical tool to help navigate this disruption, identify potential threats as well as opportunities, and aid strategic planning as the entire printing industry faces a truly disruptive event that will accelerate many longer-term trends.
