This year, 176 companies responded to the traditional autumn survey by Apenberg & Partner. Not surprisingly, against the backdrop of the current rise in paper prices, almost all respondents expect supplier prices to rise. However, in the autumn forecasts of the past years, there has never been such a high expectation that customer prices will also increase in 2022. 72 percent of the industry decision-makers surveyed are convinced of this.
For some time now, Latvia, and Riga in particular, has been repeatedly cited as an explanation when it comes to publishers demanding lower and lower prices for the production of their books or printers losing lucrative orders. Apenberg & Partner has taken up this issue and undertaken research on Latvian book production and its export, as well as German book import.
After this Corona year, we are all wondering how our industry will hold its own or change in 2022. To find out your personal assessment of the challenges and opportunities for the coming year, we cordially invite you to our traditional "Print Business Autumn Forecast".
As always, all participants will receive the evaluation of the forecast free of charge as a PDF.
"Michael Apenberg's lecture "The courage to invest in the printing industry" provided important insights at our customer event and delighted the participants".

„Any flattery aside, your “Printkompress 02” is by far the best publication in this branch in terms of technology, design and content that I have held in my hands in a long time – hats off to you!“
„Printkompress 2.0 has really turned out very well. Not only because of the readable content, the print quality is also first class. In this case you can definitely rate the "Content by the Cover".
Eike Bühring, TAFF Management T, IHK Akademie Schwaben
Already for the fourth time Apenberg & Partner presents its customer magazine Printkompress.
A glance at the cover leaves no doubt that the current issue focuses on the topic of "Women in the Printing Industry". The editorial team met three female print managers in Gütersloh, Düsseldorf and - via Skype - Barcelona to find out more about their careers in this still strongly masculine industry.
As in previous issues of Printkompress, readers will find a book recommendation at the end of the magazine. With the presentation of the photo book "Corona Nights Hamburg", the Printkompress editorial team addresses the Corona pandemic, which significantly limited the production year 2020, but whose urban effects certainly made for fascinating photo motifs.
