Megatrends in Digital Printing Applications – IT Strategies (Hanover, MA) is putting the finishing touches on a report that will be published in the fall that investigates trends in usage of digital printing and evaluates 12 major print applications, determin- ing which will migrate from analog to digital production printing, when, how much and why. Trends & Future of Direct Market-


ing – J Zarwan Partners with INTER- QUEST (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and Charlottesville, VA) teamed together to conduct this study that evaluates major vertical markets and their use of direct market- ing. The study will evaluate technol- ogy, economic/social issues, environ- mental, postal rates and demographics that may impact or influence the North American print market.


Two additional studies to be released in 2011 will be: Transformative Workflow Strat- egies for Print


Applications –


InfoTrends (Weymouth, MA) is con- ducting this study that will explore the unique characteristics of a transforma- tive workflow developed in support of business objectives or practices or for a key print application. The study is to be broken out by five major print seg- ments (publication printing, promo- tional printing, commercial printing, financial/transactional printing and within an in-plant or CRD firm). Economic Indicators for Print – Applied Economics Research Institute (AERI) of the University of Cincinnati (Ohio) will conduct the research for PRIMIR. It will provide an academic analysis of the printing industry and identify economic indicators that can be used to forecast industry growth, and demand for key print products, printing equipment and supplies.
