EuPIA Annual Conference: Latest development of European printing ink markets could be an indicator for a new recession

Friday, 16 March 2012

In most European countries, the printing ink industry had to cope with shrinking market volumes in the 4th quarter 2011. During the first two months 2012 this trend has become even stronger, says Martin Cellerier, Chairman of the EuPIA Statistics Working Group (ESWG).

When looking at the full year 2011 in comparison to 2010, there have been two countries which have shown an especially positive development with regard to both volume and value: Turkey and Russia. Countries having to cope with the opposite trend were Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Luxemburg. These results were presented to nearly 80 attendants at CEPE Annual Conference 2012 (15-16 March) in Venice/Italy.

After two years as Vice Chairman followed by another two years as Chairman of EuPIA, Dr Dirk Aulbert (Flint Group GmbH) resigned from this position. New Chairman is the former vice-chairman Thomas Hensel (MHM Holding GmbH). Hensel’s successor as Vice Chairman is Felipe Mellado (Sun Chemical).
 Dr Aulbert sees a certain probability, that the current negative trend in the printing ink markets could be an early indicator for another upcoming recession.
