Supply Chain Conditions Worsening
Supply chain shortages continue to have a significant impact on the printing industry, and according to the second-quarter 2022 PRINTING United Alliance/NAPCO Research State of the Industry Survey, they are getting worse. Nearly 300 printing companies from across the United States and Canada participated in the survey. An in-depth executive summary is available here.
Topics for this targeted supply chain study included:
- Substrate availability and pricing changes
- Consumable availability and pricing changes
- Effects of supply chain disruption on revenue
- Supply chain market shifts and expectation trends
- Sentiment around major issues and solutions
The report also covers why the American economy is likely to weaken over the next 12 months and how print providers can protect themselves from the downturn.
