The Effects of Globalisation on the Printing Industry
The printing industry is reacting to a rapidly changing economic and political environment.
Everywhere in the world printing companies adopt modern technologies and optimise
their processes to be fit for the increasingly international and competitive market
for printed matter.
The effects of globalisation are the same for all printing companies:
• A demand for higher print quality in local markets.
• Local companies demand high quality packaging and brochures for their export
• International companies contract on an international level
and have their products printed simultaneously in many
• More expensive high-quality paper and carton is used.
• More colors are applied, most jobs become full color
(4-color) jobs, and many jobs comprise 5 or even more
colors plus coating.
• Printing forms become more complex and more difficult
• Qualified press operators are hard to find and expensive
• Jobs have to be done faster, customers expect the
shortest delivery times.
• Companies tend to reduce the number of copies of a run
and prefer to print on demand in order to lower storage
costs, to make changes in brochures faster and thus react
faster to changing market demands.
What can be done? Where are the chances?
All printers feel the rising pressure of changing markets and they are alarmed. Many
of them assume that only a complete renewal of all their technical equipment involving
a large investment would enable them to be safe in the future. This assumption is,
in most cases, not correct.
Large potential can be realised by simply optimising your processes to make sure
that costly errors, repetitions and wasted time and materials are avoided. The use
of control elements and control instruments make print quality control much easier
for the expert.
