PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, the research unit of NPES, will feature the results of two new research studies at its upcoming 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 meeting will be packed with data and content from PRIMIR’s latest studies focused on Wide Format Inkjet and Flexographic trends and opportunities, plus the program will feature an expert panel on food packaging, safety and compliance.
The first timely new PRIMIR study presentation, “Wide Format Inkjet Printing Trends & Opportunities,” will feature findings from IDC by Tim Greene, Research Director–Hardcopy Solutions. According to Greene, “This study, focused on the U.S. wide format market, will define the current landscape, including quantifying the installed base and market value, as well as projections and emerging trends through 2018 for all major, wide format technology segments. The preliminary results are very interesting—we’re seeing the development of new business models and the intention to invest in new technology to drive new revenue in profitable niches and additional new services. Wherever your business is now within the print value chain, or where you hope to be to capitalize on the wide format inkjet market, you shouldn’t miss our research study session for PRIMIR in Nashville.” Watch the video preview of this study presentation by Tim Greene, here: http://tinyurl.com/wideformatprimir.
The lineup will continue with completed study results from, and timely insights on, the “U.S. Market Trends for Flexographic Printing,” presented by John Sherwin, Project Manager and Joseph Gabriel, Senior Demand Analyst, of Freedonia Custom Research. The research will highlight 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.
With many in the print value chain looking beyond traditional print to exploit new revenue potential, in addition to delving into wide format inkjet and flexo opportunities, this PRIMIR meeting will present a highly informative expert panel discussion on “Global Food Packaging Compliance.” Here, participants will gain an understanding of current issues in the migration of chemicals that affect food—or its consumer—and how all companies in the food packaging chain need to gain an understanding of current regulations, brand owner requirements, trends that impact packaging products, and the impact their role plays.
PRIMIR meetings are dynamic interactive forums that bring together industry experts and peers from across the graphic communications industry.
