BRADENTON, Florida , September 22, 2022 (press release) –

The paper focuses on how the industry got to its current state, and where it is headed in the future

The Book Manufacturers’ Institute (BMI) just released a new white paper “2022 Trends in Book Manufacturing,” which helps readers understand where the industry has been, and where it is headed in the future. As publishers and manufacturers both struggle to adapt to the new post-Covid era of the printed book, BMI wanted to produce a piece that would help level-set the conversation and help push the industry forward.

The report details the pivotal changes to the industry that occurred during the first two decades of the century. The rise of both digital printing and digital reading shifted the industry greatly. The pandemic caused a huge amount of disruption, and both publishers and printers are still adjusting to the changes. Challenges with inflation, paper, labor and capacity have affected everyone. The paper speaks to those challenges as well as how the industry looks to adapt in 2022 and beyond.

Matt Baehr, Executive Director of BMI, said, “The last 12 months have been like no other time in the book industry. We are constantly being asked about how the industry ended up in this situation and where we see it going. This white paper was written to help give everyone a glimpse into both the past and future, and hopefully a better understanding of the industry as a whole.”

The full white paper is available in the Resources section of the BMI website, at All of BMI’s 2022 research is sponsored by HP, Canon and Muller Martini.
