This month, April 2019, Indian Printer and Publisher magazine enters its 41st year as a monthly B2B trade publication. While commercial print stagnates in the rest of the world, with literacy and private expenditure on education rising, India’s newspaper, book, signage and commercial print markets still have plenty of room to grow. Simultaneously, digital printing grows together with web and social media driven by the wide use of cell phones. In fact IppStar’s ( recent survey of book printing in India and Bangladesh forecasts oncoming traction in digital book printing in India.

What are the main dynamics of the Indian print industry? India is a functional democracy – one in which freedom of expression and media and education are growing. A huge population is becoming functionally literate. Furthermore, rapid urbanization is a fact while capital investment is moving from urban centers to new urban and semi-urban centers. Print is fragmented, looking for decoration, looking for value addition, looking for migration and diversification. It is admittedly difficult to reach the multitude of printers with meaningful and actionable information and knowledge.

Growing print economy

Newspaper penetration is roughly 10% of the population and 15% of the literate population. It will continue to increase to 150 million newspapers daily. School enrollment will continue to grow. Growing vocational and higher education will lead to higher consumption of print products and services such as the eductech sector.

India is now a high growth economy with GDP growth hovering around 6.5% and projected to rise to 6.9% in the 2019-20 financial year (unpublished forecast of IppStar). The US$ 2.7 trillion economy is the 7th largest in the world and destined to be the 5th largest in the next three years. At the same time, paper consumption at 12 kilograms per capita puts India far below other Asian countries. With plenty of headroom, the paper industry is forecasting its growth at 8%.
