The 39th edition of KBA Report, Koenig & Bauer's corporate magazine, features trends and print applications from around the world that are successfully exploiting the internet. Alongside topical issues like low-migration packaging printing and UV LED curing in sheetfed offset the primary focus, as ever, is on user reports from major print sectors ranging from commercial to newspaper production.
While the economies and print media in southern Europe, North America and many other parts of the world have yet to recover from the financial meltdown and subsequent sovereign debt crisis, there has been substantial investment in print which has not been confined to emerging markets alone, and the latest issue of Report contains many examples. On the global print map the balance has shifted to Asia, Latin America and the European periphery, where print is a growth sector along with packaging, in sharp contrast to mature economies and ad-related media.
