Xerox India will display a number of its digital printing solutions at the upcoming Printpack 2019 that will be held in Greater Noida from 1-6 February. The presses on display will include the newly launched Iridesse production press along with Color C70, D95A and the Versant series – Versant 180, Versant 3100.

“In a hyper-competitive market, businesses need solutions that go beyond the standard CMYK. The change was kickstarted by specialty dry ink technology that enabled customers to create and deliver more value. Keeping in mind the changing dynamics of the digital production printing market and an overwhelming response, the highlight of the show would be the Iridesse production press,” says Vineet Gehani, director – Technology and Channels, Xerox India.

Xerox India will look forward to meeting existing and potential customers. The company’s products on display at the show will include devices for the entry, mid and high-end production catering to various customer segments like commercial offset printers, photo labs, quick printers as well as design houses and prepress bureaus. “We are sure that we will be able to meet the needs of all customers visiting our stand,” he adds.

Commenting on the Indian print market, Gehani says that overall market is growing – with digital printing specifically showing strong growth. He believes that the move to digital print and digital enhancements has not only ushered in a new range of colors, specifically metallics and white dry ink, but also increased quality, flexibility and speed.

“As the need for more customization and personalization grows, customers are demanding more value addition from each print. In fact, buyers are more than willing to pay for these capabilities, with research indicating a willingness to pay a premium of between 24% and 89% over CMYK jobs,” he explains.

Finally talking about the importance of Printpack, Gehani says that the expo has always been an important platform that brings Xerox customers and its devices together.

“It is one of the world’s largest exhibitions in the graphic arts industry and we have witnessed tremendous success in the previous editions,” he concludes.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
