Future proof your business

In today’s connected world, market and technological trends are more dynamic than ever. To be successful, you must boldly embrace opportunities to transform your business. When you diversify at pace and extend applications from your equipment, you can better respond to your customers’ evolving needs, drive profits and create a sustainable business.

We’ve been empowering print’s digital transformation for years, building on our understanding of fundamental shifts in the sector and our customers’ businesses.

Through our understanding of how digital technology can enable your success, we aim to unlock new growth opportunities that can pave the way to a bright, profitable future.
The volume of digital vs analogue print output will double by 2030.
Ricoh Graphic Communications deliver digital production printing solutions that power your business for tomorrow.
As most commercial and industrial printers are experiencing, the market shift from offset to digital print production is accelerating year on year. According to Caslon, analogue print volumes will decline by more than 2% per year until 2030, while digital output is predicted to grow by 4.6%. Isolating digital colour, Caslon expects a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the period of nearly 10%.
Transitioning from analogue to digital processes is no easy undertaking. Deciding on new equipment, and the complexity of integrating it into existing manufacturing processes, can be daunting. The question you may face is how to transition your business physically and financially in a way that’s sustainable and best serves your customers.
