The silver sponsors include Global Sales Corporation, Beatiflex Plastisol Inks, EPTA India, Bharat Fushing, Shree Union Ink & Graphic India. “The response so far is tremendous from visitors, as they can expect to see many innovations in the area of machinery, materials, inks and allied products,” says Jignesh Lapasiya, secretary SPAI.

The Indian Screen Printing Industry is multi-colored and multi-layered. In the past five decades and it has touched almost all product and industrial segments such as garments and textiles, ceramics, industrials, PCBs and printed electronics, CDs, digital and POP advertising and signage. In the Indian context these segments of the printing industry are reasonably young but growing fast especially in the post-Covid scenario. Suppliers are on the lookout for newer technology to match their expansion plans. New players are also entering the fray and for them an industry platform like the Screentex India 2022 becomes a must visit destination.

The Indian screen printing industry is claimed by the organizers to have about 1,00,000 to 125,000 printers of all sizes. Given the demand and appetite for innovation and creativity by the end consumers, they say that the screen printing industry has been continuously expanding at a healthy annual growth rate in excess of 15%. Being an industry that is at the front of products and communication – innovation in application and technology is a constant need, and this is the gap that Screentex India 2022 intends to fill. It will showcase the latest innovations in screen and textile, digital printing machinery, materials, and sublimation printing from across the world and India.

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.
