April Printing Shipments—A New Season?

The value of printing shipments for April was $6.73 billion, up from March’s $6.69 billion. It’s been a while since April shipments were better than March’s; perhaps a new seasonality is in the works. Even happier news is that April 2019 shipments were above April 2018’s $6.67 billion and are tied (on an inflation-adjusted basis) with April 2017.

Year-to-date shipments for 2019 continue to outpace 2018—January-to-April shipments for 2019 are at $26.14 billion compared to 2018’s $25.93.

We are looking forward to May shipments—May has become one of the biggest months of the year for the industry. Will that continue to be the case?
