PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, the research unit of NPES, announced its Summer Meeting to be held June 16-18, 2015 at the Hyatt Place Downtown in Nashville, Tennessee.
Themed “Pathways to Success – Growth Markets, Technologies & Applications,” the PRIMIR 2015 Summer Meeting will be packed with data and content from two new PRIMIR studies. “U.S. Market Trends for Flexographic Printing” will be addressed by John Sherwin, Project Manager and Joseph Gabriel, Senior Demand Analyst, of Freedonia Custom Research. Each will share their current perspective on the evolving U.S. flexography marketplace including: market sizing and forecast data through 2020, market and process trends, technological innovations, life cycle costs, evaluation of market forces and requirements at the packaging (CPC) buyer level, sustainability, and much more.
Another timely new PRIMIR study presentation, “Wide Format Inkjet Printing Trends & Opportunities,” will feature findings from IDC by Tim Greene, Research Director–Hardcopy Solutions. This comprehensive research, focused on the U.S. market, will define the current landscape, including historical data 2010-2014, with trends and forecasts through 2018. Major technology segments of aqueous, solvent and latex inkjet, UV (flat bed and roll-to-roll) and dye-based will be defined, including market size dollar volume, technology breakout, installed machine base, ink consumption, key verticals and potential displacement from digital/electronic signage. Additional profiling of typical and new wide format print providers will reveal drivers, barriers and perceptions regarding equipment, substrates, inks, workflow and software needs.
As the print value chain looks to leverage and exploit growth technologies, many are looking beyond traditional print to bolster revenues. This PRIMIR program promises to fulfill that need and also includes a highly informative panel discussion on “Global Food Packaging Compliance,” a printer “Speak Out” session, and a local printing establishment tour.
PRIMIR meetings are dynamic interactive forums that bring together industry experts and peers from across the graphic communications industry. An always highly rated signature component of every PRIMIR meeting is the established program time when participants engage in discussion sessions to weigh-in on and confer about current and future PRIMIR research studies.
According to Tony Laurino, Marketing Research & Analytics, Sun Chemical Corporation, “PRIMIR meetings and research are essential staples to identify emerging market trends and access key data and findings in our dynamic industry. Our company benefits from my direct involvement in the research process to ensure areas important to us are addressed, in addition to the valuable networking and exchanges occurring throughout every meeting.”
