PRINTING United Alliance announced that Canon U.S.A., Inc., has collaborated with the association to sponsor its ‘State of the Industry’ research, a series of quarterly, panel-based reports addressing current print market and economic conditions, economic sentiment, and the strategic decisions being made across the varied segments of printing.

“Economic forecasting and market research is a critical component for business decision-makers. This research reinforces the Alliance’s commitment to members and the industry at large to provide regular, thorough, and sound methodology on the latest indicators in print,” says Andy Paparozzi, chief economist, PRINTING United Alliance. “Canon’s sponsorship ensures the uninterrupted delivery of timely and incisive research.”
“Market leaders in the printing industry continue to work with Canon because they count on us to be mutually invested in one another’s success,” says Robert Barbera, director, production solutions marketing, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “This body of work will deliver actionable intelligence to help guide today’s print providers with their critical business decisions.
