Print Industry Poised for the Rebound in 2021: Stand Out with Multisensory Print Effects for These Target Markets
With the beginnings of a post-Covid economy in sight, opportunities for the print industry are booming, according to Printing Impressions’ “Top 25 Hot Markets for Printing in 2021.”
Pent-up demand is expected to deliver a one-time-only $211 billion in print sales this year, writes author Vincent Mallardi. For the first time in decades, print will be 1/100 or more of the GDP, he writes. Here are five top categories identified in the story:
- Packaged foods
- Medical, Pharmaceutical and Biotech
- Healthcare Providers
- Wine, Liquors and Infused beverages
¡Salud! You Can’t Go Wrong in the Market for Tequila or Healthcare
Many of the same industries that managed to thrive in the pandemic are expected to have a very good 2021. Thanks to added packaging and labeling needs of the burgeoning drive-through and home-delivery food services, demand for labels, direct mail, promotional products and fliers will continue to grow, the article says. Medical and health-related businesses will spur demand for posters, periodicals and compliant packaging.
Wine, liquor and an unending array of infused beverage offerings – with tequila leading the field in white blends (up 33%) – will drive orders for packaging, labels, in-store promotional and other printed promotions, the article says.
Comic books (up 33%), religious printing and secular music (up 20%), also show strong potential for 2021 print sales, according to the story.
