PIA Predicts Another Favorable Year for Print in 2019 State of the Industry Report

Thursday, February 07, 2019

Press release from the issuing company

Pittsburgh, Pa. – Printing Industries of America released today its 2019 State of the Industry Report providing a detailed outlook of current conditions within the printing industry from an economic, legislative, and regulatory perspective. Prepared by the Printing Industries of America’s in-house experts each year, the report consists of an overview from the Center for Print Economics and Management as well as Government Affairs and Advocacy along with a potential forecast of what to expect over the course of 2019.

PIA's Center for Print Economics and Management expects the economy to continue growing at a modest pace over the course of 2019, although the risk of recession has increased as we enter the 10th year of the economic recovery. It forecasts that it will be yet another favorable year for print and printers, with total print revenues increasing around 1 to 2 percent and printers' profits holding at their historic levels. Print will continue to evolve as a media and printers will continue to transition with a diverse mix of processes, products, and ancillary services for their customers.

Print will face a wide variety of legislative and regulatory challenges in 2019. “Go paperless” initiatives are gaining momentum despite continued industry efforts to stymy their development. Costs increases related to healthcare coverage, material goods, and other operational expenses remain at the forefront of trade policy and legislative talks on Capitol Hill.
