Industry Trends Report: Part 1—Monthly Sales
The latest reading of 36.9 in March shows that printers’ sales generally trended higher in March, so the typical printer is experiencing modestly rising sales. As forecasted in our Charting a Path for 2013–2014 report, we expect stronger industry sales in the first quarter of 2013 and growth to taper off slightly throughout the year.
Printing Industries of America members respond to the survey to uncover some of the key areas of their business to develop the Monthly Industry Conditions Dashboard from the Economic and Market Research department. With regular updates on current market trends, printers are better able to benchmark their business, prepare, and make more informed decisions to improve their bottom line.
To participate in the May 2013 survey and learn more, go to www.printing.org/surveys. All individual company information will be kept confidential. For questions, contact Ed Gleeson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
