At PrintPack India 2017, Huber Inks’ main focus was the packaging industry. “We are focusing more on the packaging industry, especially on the food packaging segment,” said RY Kamat, director of sales and marketing at Hubergroup India. “We have recently launched many new products for the printing and packaging industries.” 

At PrintPack, Huber promoted its first-setting mineral oil free next generation eco-friendly inks for high-end packaging printing, called PackagingPlus. Kamat said, “PackagingPlus is a low migration ink. In addition, we are also displaying our premium product, MGA, which is a part of the food packaging and low migration inks. We have brought in vibrant color inks for the packaging industry called CRS, which are monopigmented inks having a very vibrant and large gamut.” 

Explaining Huber’s interest in the packaging industry, Kamat said, “If you look at the packaging industry in India, it is on a very high growth trajectory. So, we are focusing more on the packaging segment. In fact, we are now coming out with a whole product basket for the packaging industry. We have a complete range of UV products as well.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
