Research by: IDC
This is an update to the 2009 study with a fresh outlook on the findings and data. Packaging is the fastest growing segment in the printing industry in North America. However, some segments of the packaging market are under severe pressure based on these major factors: global economics, off-shore manufacturing of durable goods and trade imbalances. Based on these and other factors, the North American packaging market is going through dynamic changes depending upon the industry segment. This study examines how these global factors will affect the North American packaging industry and how that in turn will affect packaging converters and suppliers.
