Fujifilm India displayed a variety of products at the Consumer Electronic Imaging Fair (CEIF) 2023 held from 5-7 January in Mumbai, including the 6-color print engine Revoria Press PC 1120 from its graphics arts division.

“The Revoria Press PC 1120 is Fujifilm’s flagship product. This press prints photo images of great quality. In India, photos are largely wedding album-centric. So, this is the right solution for wedding album and amateur album printing. The press was launched a year ago. We managed to install 20 units across India. We are getting traction for the product in both the photo printing market and the general commercial printing segment. It is a very versatile press,” said Priyatosh Kumar, head of division, graphics arts division, Fujifilm India.

Fujifilm also displayed the ApeosPro for Photo C810 / C750 / C650 printer, which is built on a next-generation hybrid platform, along with the Frontier DE100-XD. The ASK-400 dye-sublimation printer was also on display. In addition to the hardware, the company displayed a variety of samples printed by Fujifilm customers.

“We believe that the proof of the pudding is in the eating. And that is why our customers showcased samples printed on our machines. Six customers displayed their samples of which five are purely into photo albums. One is a web to print photo company. If you had a look at the samples they displayed, you would have realized the power of our technology,” Kumar said. 

Graphic arts industry bounces back

The year 2022 was largely a good year for the graphics arts in India as well as for Fujifilm India’s graphics arts division.

“We are new in the digital production printing market. We are just scratching the surface when it comes to the photo printing business. As for our traditional plates business, we have done extremely well. We are very optimistic about our growth in the graphics arts business,” Kumar said.

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.
