The current situation and development of the British printing industry

the printing and packaging industry is one of the six major industries in the British industrial field. It serves finance, publishing and manufacturing 1 If there is no overload industry and other industries as a special industry, the service object is very wide. The total output value of the printing industry is 13billion pounds per year. The blade of the left force point should be adjusted and tightened; (2) The wear of the blade and fulcrum of the force point will increase the load error to varying degrees, accounting for about 1.7% of the UK's gross national product, of which the printing cost of books, brochures, leaflets, etc. is the main source of funds

there are more than 12000 printing enterprises in the UK, with more than 170000 employees. Printing enterprises are characterized by small scale, with no more than 20 employees. Only about 20 printing enterprises have more than 500 employees. With the reorganization and separation of the company, the number of small companies will continue to increase. The printing industry is relatively concentrated in the southeast of Britain, and Yorkshire is the headquarters of many large printing companies

according to statistics, at present, the annual net income of the printing industry is about 850million pounds, and its trade volume has been growing from 140million pounds in 1990 to 712million pounds in 1997. It fell to 540million pounds in 1998, 428million pounds in 1999, but increased to 455million pounds in 2000. Overall, the annual consumption of the printing industry in the UK is mainly in printing, packaging and paper, with a total consumption of about 215million pounds. Although consumers also need some printing materials in education, entertainment and information access, this only accounts for a small part. Commercial and financial activities are the main aspects of printing consumption, and some economic activities often affect the publishing and printing industry. Therefore, publishing and printing has become the "barometer" of the economy

current situation of British printing industry

since 1998, advertising printing has shown a growing trend, and has gradually become one of the most important components of the printing market. In 1998, the printing volume of advertisements reached 3billion pounds, twice that of books, samples and leaflets. The printing volume of books, samples and leaflets in 1997 was less than 2billion pounds for the first time since 1993, and continued to decline to 340million pounds in 1998. The printing volume of the magazine has hardly changed for three consecutive years, maintaining at about 1billion pounds. The printing volume of program lists, tickets, etc. is reduced by about £ 100million per year. In addition, the business volume of plate making, production and typesetting also decreased by about 19%. In sharp contrast, the business volume of label printing increased by about £ 4.4 million, which is unique in the whole offset printing industry. The printing of folding cards, cartons and cartons in packaging and printing is also in a downward trend, with a business volume of 1.2 billion pounds

according to the statistics of customers and excite, the export volume of British printing business increased by 6.9% in 1998, and decreased by about 2.9% in 1999. However, the export to Europe increased by 3.3%, while the export to other countries decreased by 2.4%. Books and pamphlets account for 51% of the export business. In 1999, Britain's import business from non European countries increased by 12.7%. Like exports, books and pamphlets accounted for the majority, about 39%, newspapers accounted for 13.4%, and commercial advertisements ranked third

the printing industry tends to be environmentally friendly

the development trend of the British printing industry, like many other countries, is constantly improving and developing in the direction of environmental protection. This development trend has also been welcomed by people in many small cities, and many places have issued corresponding policies to make printing more environmentally friendly. While carrying out environmental protection printing, we have received good benefits. Although we still have a lot to do in the printing industry, the British printing industry has proved with practical actions that we are developing in the direction of environmental protection

digital printing

as early as 1987, Canon produced the first color digital copier. It is canon that has become a pioneer in advocating the direct online operation of digital equipment and computers. Since then, the British printing industry has learned about digital printing technology, and some printing practitioners soon began to use this new technology to develop new businesses. Many people engaged in digital printing are very optimistic about the prospects of digital printing, and pay great attention to customer service, because they have realized that all businesses come from users. The emergence of "printing on demand" has also proved this. In more and more printing businesses, the most attractive is no longer how beautiful the printing workshop is, but people pay more attention to service quality. Enterprises engaged in on-demand printing are often twice as fast as their competitors in the printing and delivery of prints, thus having stronger competitive strength

successful printers generally pay close attention to new technologies in the industry to maintain their leading position. This is also reflected in the field of digital printing. These printers have introduced advanced digital printing equipment and used these equipment to engage in on-demand printing. At the same time, direct plate making technology has also begun to be applied in printing. These technologies undoubtedly greatly improve the speed and efficiency of printing. The emergence of digital printing technology has greatly impacted the printing market, especially in the concept of customer service

however, due to the pursuit of new technologies and new equipment, people have to face the problem of shortening the service life of equipment, which is also the result of market competition. The emergence of this situation makes it very difficult to increase investment and continue to give full play to technological advantages. This is not only reflected in the printing industry, but also in the whole process of business activities

computer direct plate making

in the revolution of digital printing, a very important driving factor is direct plate making technology. This technology appears in the field of prepress technology, which makes prepress work very efficient

CTP system was first used in the field of newspaper printing, and their close cooperation with CTP system developers has made a very important contribution to the development of CTP system. In addition to the advantages of advanced technical performance, which can increase the competitive strength of enterprises, the computer direct plate making system can also help enterprises in business management, so as to achieve the sustainable development of enterprises. Of course, it will take some time to improve the maturity, stability and reliability of the whole digital printing system

lack of technology

although Britain is a country with relatively advanced printing technology, it still shows a lack of mastery of new technology while applying new technology. Therefore, we must carry out technical training and education to adapt to the continuous development and application of technology. At the same time, we should also attract and call on young people to meet the challenges. In order to solve the problems of insufficient technology and lack of efficient and high-quality training, B will control the tension within the range of about 100 Newtons. PIF (British Printing Industry Association) and gpmu (Industry Trade Committee) have established a professional international training organization for the printing industry, namely the training and development charter


it is obvious that the rapid development of printing technology has made "computer direct printing", once an ideal term, a reality in many companies, and the era of digital printing has really arrived. With the development of printing technology and the update of printing equipment, printing instruments can have a relatively close initial running speed corresponding to the set frequency, which has been able to meet the needs of users to a greater extent. At present, the biggest problem faced by printers is environmental problems. How to carry out environmental printing has become an important factor for the success of printing enterprises
