Optimistic Signs and Graphics Industry

Tuesday 30th July 2019

Optimism is high in the sign and graphics industry, according to new research. A study commissioned by ISA-UK powered by BSGA, has revealed that, despite the uncertain political times, optimism is high in this £500m a year sector.

Pile of moneyMore than half (58%) of the sign industry decision-makers who took part in the online survey, reported that business turnover has increased in the past year, with a further 24% saying it has remained constant. In addition to an increase in turnover, 53% have seen customer numbers increase during the past 12 months as more and more businesses are understanding the value of good quality signage.

In terms of profitability, 46% of respondents revealed that they have seen profits increase in the last year.

David Catanach, director of ISA-UK, powered by BSGA says “More than half of the business decision-makers who completed the survey agreed that there is plenty of work available in the sign and graphics industry demonstrating the potential growth within this thriving sector.’’

With signs and graphics business owners showing such positive reaction to the growth of the industry, it is no surprise that Signs Express have welcomed a record-breaking number of franchisees ever into their network over the past year.

Sam Armstrong who is managing director of signage consultancy Make it Happen and vice-president of ISA-UK confirmed by saying “There appears an influx in orders as well as quotations, with tenders in the abundance: hopefully an indication of even more positive times ahead!”
