Build a picture of the European graphic industry with Intergraf’s Economic and Activity Reports

Consult Intergraf’s recently published Economic Report and Activity Report to find out about the state and activities of the European graphic industry today. These two publications are your one-stop-shop for an overview of the industry.

Intergraf’s Economic Report provides extensive economic information about the European graphic industry, which is composed of 113,000 companies, employing some 620,000 people and generating a turnover of approximately €80 billion. It provides historical developments and comparisons between countries.

This year’s edition highlights challenges faced by the sector, including high labour costs and high imports from China. It also shows how turnover is stabilising thanks to for instance a positive trend in book printing and a positive trade balance. In addition, the report features forecasts up to 2022 from partner research institute Smithers Pira and country reports from Intergraf’s member federations.

For supplementary information about the work and activities of Intergraf, look no further than our Activity Report 2017-18. The Activity Report presents information about our EU policy and advocacy work (competitiveness, environment, packaging and social affairs), as well as campaigns we are involved in (Two Sides and Keep Me Posted EU), communications and publications we distribute, events we organise for the sector and support we offer to niche sectors. The report also shares information about how Intergraf is governed, as well as providing some key comments and quotes from Intergraf’s President, staff and members.
