Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Over the five years through 2016-17, industry revenue is expected to rise at a compound annual rate of 0.4% to reach £3.8 billion.

In addition, weak conditions along the entire printing value chain translated into sluggish demand for printing ink. These variables created a challenging environment for upstream paint and printing ink manufacturers. However, the industry has grown overall over the five years through 2016-17 and IBISWorld expects the industry to continue to remain stable in the current year, as the economy continues growing but demand from some downstream markets falls.
