Printing press

Leasing Life, in collaboration with Tallon & Associates, publishes a monthly analysis of data on the demand for used assets. This month we look at changes in demand for the printing industry.

 

Pre-press equipment

  • Demand remains steady for good quality late model equipment.
  • Very limited demand for older equipment.

 

Offset presses

  • Shortage of new machinery has increased demand for second user equipment.
  • UK market continues to reduce for older traditional presses, however there is still limited demand from developing economies.
  • Slight increase in demand from printers looking to update older machines given competitive pricing at present making presses more affordable.
  • Lack of funding options proving to be a problem for many companies looking to invest.

 

Label printing

  • Late model presses still attracting interest from both UK based and International purchasers.
  • Demand reducing for older letterpress machines, with very little interest from UK purchasers.

 

Screen printing

  • Market continues to retract as wide format and digital machines become more cost effective.
  • Equipment becoming unsaleable with only very limited demand from developing economies.
  • High costs for decommissioning and shipping limit overseas.

 

Digital printing/ wide format

  • Limited market for older equipment due to technological advances.
  • Demand for wide format equipment reduced dramatically over past 12 months due to slow down within the retail sector.

 

Print finishing

  • Demand for equipment starting to recover over past six months due to a shortage of equipment on second user market.
  • Seen recent demand from European purchasers.
  • Shrinking market for older equipment.

 

Direct mail/envelope

  • A large number of closures within the sector over the past six months has resulted in a surplus of equipment on the market with limited demand for the same.
  • Larger operators will now only invest in modern high-speed machines and consequently demand for older machines reducing.
  • Recent sales for export to countries such as Turkey, Germany and Australia.

 

Packaging and converting

  • Decline in the demand for Flexographic and gravure printing.
  • Demand for carton and converting equipment remaining static.
  • Global market for equipment and marketing periods of six months plus must be anticipated to source purchasers at realistic levels.
