Print price and margins are under pressure globally – not just in India!

4th drupa Global Trends report 2017


Optimism conquers reality
In global terms, 42% of printers described their business as in a ‘good’ economic state, while 11% described it as ‘poor.’ As always the forecast for next year is somewhat more optimistic than the reality the following year while in some cases the difference is striking, such as Africa, which reported a net decline in confidence, the first time for any region since this report series started in 2013.

As you join us today from India and elsewhere, we have a favour to ask. Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact. Our traffic as per analytics more than doubled in 2020 and many readers chose to support us financially even when advertising fell to pieces.

As we come out of the pandemic in the next few months, we hope to again expand our geography and evolve our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information, with some of the best correspondents in the industry. If there were ever a time to support us, it is now. You can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help to sustain us by subscribing.
