“Printpack is a national event, and we have high expectations from PrintPack, especially as this is the most extensive exhibition in the printing space after the pandemic. The expectation from the organizers is to facilitate the people coming from across the country. We hope we shall have many visitors looking at digital printing. People should feel safe and comfortable visiting the exhibition and discussing future growth opportunities,” said Manish Gupta, National Marketing manager – PP and IP at Konica Minolta.

PrintPack Show Daily

Following the pandemic, there has been a greater emphasis on digital printing. Printpack is a well-attended event, with visitors flocking to see what innovative printing technologies are on display. It aims to have more interesting discussions with visitors about the possibilities of digital printing as a manufacturer of digital printing equipment.

The organization hopes to communicate with customers from pre-press to print to post-press. Konica Minolta India offers a variety of solutions to meet a variety of customer needs, including how automation may help customers become more effective and productive.

Note: The IPPGroup will be publishing the PrintPack India Show Daily on all five days of the event from 26 to 30 May 2022. Our May issues of Indian Printer and Publisher and Packaging South Asia will also contain previews of the event. 

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
