While in 2012, printing in general accounted globally for around $800 billion following a decline and packaging printing for around $300 billion of this sum, the market value of packaging printing is predicted to be up to $370 billion and printing in general almost $850 billion in 2016. Since 2006, packages and labels have actually been the only printed products on the rise. Flexography and inkjet (to an even greater extent) are growing steadily, other technologies are flat or declining. Sheetfed offset with $180 billion per year is still the most widely used technology in packaging printing. And just with regards to these facts, Grafie CZ held an international expert conference on UV printing on packages and printed products during the Embax and PRINTexpo fairs in Brno.
