Growth expectations in the sector printing and paper machines

The printing and paper machine sector has low growth expectations to 2020

The sector printing and paper machines underwent a dynamical up and down since the world economic crisis. The growth expectations to 2020 turn out to be very cautious.

June 12th, 2018 - Production of printing and papare handling machines could grow by 11% and sales by 10% more strongly than those in machinery industry during the years from 2014 to 2017 as the industry report printing and paper machines indicates.

Growth expectations are related to machine production. They lie with 1% p.a. to 2020 significantly below of those in machinery industry with 5.5% p.a.

Growth expectations of the machine-builders in the sector printing machines until 2020 compared to machinery industry.

There is a wide gap between the above-average growth rates of production and sales of printing and paper machines and the restrained, below-average growth expectations up to 2020. 

This gap can be explained by the sharp decline in production and sales in 2017, which abruptly ended a steep growth phase.

As a result, two thirds of machine builders (67%) expect no growth in printing and paper machines by 2020, and a further 22% expect a further decline in production by 2020. Only 11% of the mechanical engineers in this sector expect above-average growth by 2020.
