Starting as a distributor of Sakurai for screen printing, Kunal Enterprise has diversified itself into different segments. At present, it is providing solutions for the glass, printed electronics, and packaging industries, textiles, ceramics, security industries, and more.

The team of Kunal Enterprise was present at Pamex 2024 to promote innovative printing inks, graphics, foiling, and other add-ons that can enhance products.

Kunal Gandhi, joint managing director of Kunal Enterprise, said, “Our product portfolio is much more than commercial printing and packaging. It is about adding functionality to products.” He says printing ink on paper is very basic at the moment. One of the team members explained that the company focuses on printing functional stuff such as conductive inks on paper and plastics.

Dispensing color onto print is not the future. But rather, dispensing futuristic inks that can add functionality to your day-to-day life products is the future,” Gandhi said. At the exhibition, the team received inquiries about graphics and foiling.

On the industry scenario, Gandhi said it is a developing market. “We have to be present in 3-4 more Pamex and Pamex-like exhibitions to reach our goal of shifting the industry to futuristic inks, and other add-on solutions.”

In the packaging segment, Kunal Enterprise has tied up with Saralon GmbH, which works on the development of functional and conductive inks as well as ready-to-use printed electronic boards for specific applications.

Gandhi said, “SaralLight from Saralon creates interactive packaging, point-of-sale, print media, and label applications. It enhances light-emitting packaging, which is our new USP.” Pointing at the light-emitting packaged products on display at the stand, he said it is a major addition to the luxury packaging segment.

Summarizing his experience at the exhibition, Gandhi said, “We were at the exhibition to create awareness. To a certain extent, we have achieved it.”

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.
