Intergraf Economic Report: The Evolution of the European Graphic Industry




The Intergraf annual economic report ‘The Evolution of the European Graphic Industry’ provides statistical information for the European Union, as well as Norway and Switzerland.

It provides an overview of available data on the European graphic industry (turnover, number of employees and companies, production values, trade), as well as highlights about the economic development of sectors which are relevant to the printing industry (ink, paper, publishing, books, press, energy and postal markets). It shows historical developments and comparison between countries.

Official consolidated statistics made available by Eurostat are the main source of information. The report also features a contribution from Smithers Pira ‘European print market review’ which includes a 4-year forecast. Information on current trends in selected European countries is provided by Intergraf’s member federations.

The report is available free of charge exclusively for printing companies belonging to one of Intergraf’s member federations.
