The Printing Industry in Latin America in 2014

The 2014 Latin American GDP is projected at 3.1%. The projected growth rates are much higher than the advanced economies but below the average of emerging market economies.

The printing companies will face the dual challenge of improving their productivity and adding various value-added services, to offset some weakness in domestic demand and the progressive competitive impact of digital media. The slow global economic recovery in 2013 has weakened domestic consumption in most countries and has exposed chronic problems of excess capacity.
