Sustainability and green solutions are no more just fancy words. The customers want green solutions from their supplies. We have addressed this issue with the Kratos thermal zero-process, direct-on-press digital plate, and range of green chemicals. Meanwhile, on the digital front, we have the partnerships with HP and Konica Minolta, which are doing extremely well,” said Amit Khurana, deputy CEO, digital and offset printing solutions, Technova Imaging Systems.

Talking about the response to its state-of-the-art TOUCH Center at Turbhe in Navi Mumbai inaugurated in January this year, Khurana said the industry has given a double thumbs up to the initiative.

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that the industry has responded phenomenally well to the demo center. A lot of brands have visited the demo center and have worked on new solutions. People are looking to learn; brands can now directly work on a new idea. We hope to further enhance the TOUCH Center as we move forward,” Khurana says.

TOUCH is an acronym for the TechNova Open University for Change. The center is spread over 3,000 square foot of area and has the best-in-class HP Indigo 6k digital press running live, which will offer a complete experience of HP Indigo’s digital printing technology.

The TOUCH Center is the extension of HP’s Graphic Experience Center in Alpharetta, Barcelona and Singapore. The center will provide many services such as a demonstration of HP Indigo technology and performance and new application development for print service providers (PSPs) and brands.

Print has recovered well post-Covid

Khurana said the Indian print industry has bounced back really well post Covid with packaging and book printing leading the recovery and growth. In the commercial printing segment, growth is happening in the digital space as printers are moving from offset to digital. Newspapers have also started generating profits underpinned by cost rationalization, he said.

We expect the growth in the print segment to continue. In packaging, for example, flexo is witnessing rapid popularity. I expect exciting times in the years ahead,” Khurana concluded.

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.
