For the Publishing, Converting and Printing Machinery sector1, the 2019-2021 scenario is expected to show an overall less dynamic trend in world demand (-1.1% in euros. Forecast by StudiaBo in the Ulisse Information System, based on the latest International Monetary Fund2 macroeconomic outlook).
It will therefore be essential for exporting companies in the sector to formulate a correct choice of markets with the greatest potential. As can be seen from the chart below (source: ExportPlanning - MarketSelection tool), which represents the distribution of the expected growth of imports of Converting and Printing Machines in the 2019-2021 period, in a context of not favorable trends for many Western European markets, there are significant opportunities in Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Central and Latin America and, above all, Asia.
