InfoTrends/CAP Ventures Examines Document Services Opportunities in the European Transportation Equipment Manufacturing Industry

(Luton, UK) July 18, 2005… Manufacturing industries are one of the key drivers of the European economy, representing a sizeable market opportunity for printing, as well as the sale of paper and electronic-based document-related products and services. A recent survey conducted by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures indicates that respondents from this industry spend an average of 2.9% of total corporate revenues on printing from outside vendors. 

InfoTrends/CAP Ventures’ new report entitled The European Transportation Equipment Manufacturing Industry: the Document Services Opportunity examines key trends affecting the European manufacturing, motor vehicle, aerospace, and railroad and shipbuilding industries and provides insight on how to capitalise on these trends. The document also analyses the five main types of documents used in this industry: promotional, publications, transaction, utility, and office.

The manufacturing industry covers a broad spectrum of businesses, ranging from small, independent companies to publicly-held multinational corporations. The content and document management needs include:

  • Document and content creation, content revision and modification, and storage
  • Data capture and manipulation
  • Document communication and transmission
  • Document workflow and content management
  • Information security
  • Repeated printing of documents such as forms and transaction documents
  • Varying levels of customisation, personalisation, and nationalisation/localisation

“The European Union’s transportation manufacturing industry is encountering a number of challenges as the twin pressures of a soft domestic economy and strong international competition have driven consolidation, reorganisations, and even collapse and liquidation,” commented Brian Miller, an Associate Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. “This report will steer service providers in the right direction, making them aware of the major trends they should be mindful of while selling products and services in this market.”
