The proportion of labor costs in book printing enterprises


In recent years, the shortening of orders and the production of multiple varieties in small batches have had a certain impact on the efficiency of traditional printing and have caused obvious losses due to plate changes. The shortening of product cycles has also caused changes in the personnel structure. The number of workers in production workshops has decreased, but the number of support staff has increased, such as schedulers, plate makers, transport personnel, and business personnel. In the past, a salesperson only needed to sell ten products to meet the target, but now it is no longer feasible, which has caused an increase in sales and management costs for traditional printing companies.

What is the appropriate percentage of labor costs for traditional printing companies and digital printing companies?

how to save the labor cost,Should we Replacing human labor with automation machines?

*Overall, the labor cost profit margin of the printing industry in 2022 has slightly increased compared to 2021, but the increase is not significant and still maintained at a low level of around 3%.

*The low labor cost profit margin indicates that the printing industry faces significant labor cost pressure and limited profit space.

In the future, the printing machine industry will embrace a more intelligent and automated integrated development.
