South India’s leading show on Commercial Printing, Package Converting and Digital Signs is back to Hyderabad
There has been a revolutionary change in the last few years in the printing industry in India. Growing at a rate of 12% per annum, the Indian Printing Industry comprises more than 250,000 big, small and medium printers. It is slowly progressing from the heavy machinery using industry to a more software-centric business. The advent of global brands, rising consumerism and growth of the pharmaceutical industry have seen an increase in the scope for package printing. By 2025, India is expected to become the fifth largest consumer market in the world, according to CII. The inception of new technologies along with a rise in e-commerce, changing lifestyles, urbanisation and increased personal health awareness has boosted the growth of the print and packaging markets. Amid this scenario, PrintFair is setting up a business and networking platform for the industry to help showcase all that is innovative and ground-breaking. The event is happening, concurrently with PackPlus South, from
20-21-22 March, at HITEX, Hyderabad.
