Currently, we at IppStar are doing an electronic and phone call survey to know the effect of the Covid-19 lockdown in India on the printing and packaging industry and the perception of the industry’s emergence from this disruption. With your cooperation, we plan to make the results public by 10 May 2020.

From the two webinars that I have participated in concerning the print and packaging industry, I have found, on the one hand, wild optimism and the usual stuff about the bright future. On the other hand, there has been some realism based on how little we really know about Covid-19 and its potential spread and implications in India. There are all kinds of undercurrents such as financial help from the government, the costs of hygienic precautions in the workplace, the health and safety of workers, and the rate at which the economy will come back to what is being called “the new normal.”

Give us three minutes of your valuable time. Here is the link to the quick digital survey

IppStar (IPP Services Training and Research Pvt. Ltd) is the leading market research company that provides on the ground and face to face research, training and consultancy to the printing, packaging and publishing industry in India. From time-to-time, we do small web-based surveys supported by our research executives to understand the current scenarios and upcoming industry trends. Since we have probably talked to you numerous times over the past 20 years and asked you many questions in confidence, you can expect a call from our two full-time researchers who may have even met you in the past and visited your plants. This is the first time that they cannot actually travel across the country and come and see you, so it would be good if you can answer our questions online.

Results of the IppStar Survey of brand owners, print & packaging on the recovery from Covid-19

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.
