Sub-Saharan Africa Printing Industry Trends, 2016

Smithers Pira is teaming up with Africa Print to invite printers to participate in a major online survey into current trends in printing markets in Southern & Sub-Saharan Africa.

The survey is designed to assess current trends in print markets in the region, covering key print product areas and printing technologies, and also examines the extent to which digital print is making inroads into sectors dominated by offset and other traditional print processes.

Your answers will be treated with the utmost confidentiality, and only used in combination with answers from other respondents to produce an overview/average of weighted responses, and help inform Smithers Pira's general analysis of regional printing trends. Typical completion time is just 10-15 minutes.

Take part in the survey

To show our appreciation, all respondents to this survey will receive a Summary of Results from this survey, as well as a free Smithers Pira e-book (PDF) on "Analogue to Digital Printing - Navigating the Transition" (worth $300).

We know that your time is valuable. This survey is designed to be quick and easy to complete. The final closing date for entries is Friday 30th Spetember, 2016.

Thank you for your assistance with this important research.
