New Delhi-based UV Graphics, known for providing services in postpress solutions to the printing and graphic arts industry, will participate again in PrintPack India. The company provides practical and most up-to-date solutions for coating, curing, label punching, hot stamping, and flexographic or gravure printing/coating applications.
At the PrintPack Show, UV Graphics will show the latest and newly developed Ultraflex UFO-450 10 color full servo LED UV combo film and label press using 42 servo drives. It will also keep its other label presses, diecutting machines, Hybrid UV curing systems, anilox rollers, corona treaters, and many more on display to attract its customers at Stand D24, 26, 27, 34 & 35 in Hall 7.
However, PrintPack India is taking place after a gap of around three years, the market has now opened up to meet the industry, and so the exhibitors are expecting a large footfall. This time, printers and converters from all across India as well as abroad will be attending this show. Due to the pandemic, only serious buyers and investors are likely to participate in this show. We expect serious visitors and investors during this exhibition.
Abhay Datta from UV Graphic Technologies, putting his views on the sales prospect, said, “PrintPack is the largest exhibition in India for printing and packaging, and we expect a large footfall in this show. This event is about decision makers, printers and converters and allows us to showcase our products to domestic and global visitors. We will showcase our products and hope to generate new business and develop strong relationships with our print partners.”
“If you ask me about the future scope of the label industry, I would just say that there is huge growth in this industry. Customers are looking for the best quality labels for different purposes. There is also a huge demand for print and print-related machinery, and we foresee a double-digit growth in the upcoming years,” he concluded.
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 forthcoming June issues of Indian Printer and Publisher and Packaging South Asia will also contain previews and glimpses and some reviews 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.
