Yearly Economic Forecasts

What's in store for print markets over the next few years? These recent "environmental scans" performed by the Center for Print Economics and Management Department explore the economic and competitive factors that directly influence printers' sales and financial performance. The forecast period covered in the outlook is two years, as this is the typical planning horizon used for most major business decisions, although some longer-run views are included. These reports are designed to help printers and suppliers to assess their competitive situation and to develop their own strategic plans for the next few years and beyond.

These reports are available to members for free.  Non-members can purchase these reports at our online store.
