Digital Book Printing: Market Analysis & Forecast (2012-2017)
INTERQUEST, a leading market and technology research and consulting firm serving the digital printing and publishing industry, has released a comprehensive new study of digital book printing in North America. The report-an in-depth analysis of the market, including the key issues, trends, size, and technological developments-complements and extends previous INTERQUEST studies of digital book printing dating back to 2005.
According to David Davis, Director of INTERQUEST, "The book publishing market continues to evolve at breakneck speed, and digital printing has assumed a central role in the restructuring of the supply chain. If you want to understand how the market is evolving, if you want to see how leading book printers and publishers are using digital print technology, and if you want an informed view of where things will stand in the next half decade, you need this report."
The study is based on 50 in-depth interviews with major publishers and book printers in North America. Collectively the printers interviewed generate more than two-thirds of the books printed in North America. The study assesses the overall book publishing market in North America as well as the use of digital printing for book manufacturing. Key issues related to digital printing which are examined in depth include the use of inkjet, monochrome and color pages produced on digital systems, the use of distribute and print, personalization and customization, assessments of digital printing systems vendors, and technology developments related to printing, binding and finishing, and substrates. In addition to detailed survey findings the study includes market size forecasts from 2012 to 2017.
"We are able to draw upon a body of data we've gathered regularly over the past seven to eight years, which gives us detailed picture of how the market is changing. This year we saw not only a continuation of ongoing trends, but a surprising acceleration in some areas such as the use of print on demand and inkjet output. It is clear that digital printing is playing an increasingly important role in supply chain management, and will offer tremendous opportunities in the book market for years to come," said Davis.
