The Printing Industry


The South African printing industry and its suppliers contributed approximately R55bn to gross domestic product and provided around 45,000 jobs in 2017. Digital disruption continues to drive the decline of the commercial analogue printing segment, and print output volumes are on a steady downward trajectory. Some role players indicate that innovative technological advances sweeping through the sector present new opportunities for the industry.


Digital Disruption


During the past decade, far-reaching changes have swept through the South African printing industry, with digital printing technologies becoming mainstream processes at the expense of conventional analogue printing. The circulation figures of most categories of publications in print format continue to decline, and the contraction in commercial printing throughput has resulted in an oversupply of web and gravure print capacity. With profit margins narrowing and technological advances continuing to drive disruption in the traditional print landscape, local printers are increasingly opting to reposition their businesses in an effort to remain sustainable.
