“There has been a very good demand for EFI Pro 32r+ in the Indian market and we have sold three units in the recent months. The printer has some very good features. We have also sold a few units of EFI large-format Hybrid printers,” Chopra said. Arrow Digital distributes EFI large format printers in India.

The EFI Pro 32r+ is a four-color press with an option of white or clear ink. It has a printing speed of 2,756 ft2 (256 m2) per hour. The printer offers up to 847 dpi true resolution and built-in Fiery digital front end, featuring FAST RIP acceleration technology, plus RIP and print on demand functionality, or the ability to print pre-ripped files at the printer interface.

Chopra said that the demand for LED UV printers like EFI Pro 32r+ in India mainly is from indoor or in shop signage segment. “The EFI Pro 32r+ can very well be used for printing outdoor signage and hoardings as well but in India, there is not much demand for LED printers for outdoor signage printing,” he said.

Indian signage market recovering

Chopra said that the Indian signage market has been on a recovery path since the start of the 2022 calendar year and the year ahead looks promising. 

“As already mentioned, we have seen good orders for the LED printing machines in recent months and expect to get more orders going forward. The economy is opening up and printers are eager to invest in new machines and upgrade their operations”, he said.

Talking about the response at Media Expo Mumbai 2022, Chopra said that the footfall has been excellent and Arrow Digital got multiple serious enquires.

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.
