Paperex 2013 to span 14 halls at Pragati Maidan

informed Gagan Sahni, senior manager marketing, International Trade and Exhibitions India Pvt Ltd (ITEI). Here, he shares more about the upcoming Paparex 2013, to be held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from October 24-27, 2013. Excerpts.

The industry statistics…

Indian paper industry has been showing a phenomenal growth and is expected to grow at a rate of ~6.4% CAGR to 15.5-16Mt up to FY17. “India, the 15th largest paper manufacturer, is the world’s fastest growing paper market; producing however, only ~2.6% of its total output. The per capita consumption in India stands at only 9.3 kg as against 42 kg in China, 22 kg in Indonesia, 25 kg in Malaysia and 312 kg in the US,” shared Gagan Sahni, senior manager marketing, International Trade and Exhibitions India Pvt Ltd (ITEI), and the prime architect of the brand Paperex.

“The Indian paper industry is classified into three main segments–paperboard and industrial packaging (paperboard) comprising ~45% of the industry, followed by printing and writing paper (p&w), accounting for ~35% and newsprint segment (newsprint) covering ~20% of the domestic paper production,” he added.

Challenges in the paper industry…

On asking about the challenges in the Indian paper industry, Gagan replied, “There are quite a few challenges to the Indian paper industry. These include: weakening of Rupee against Dollar affecting the imports, thus affecting the competitiveness of the Indian paper industry. While, the increase in raw material, energy and financing cost has put enormous pressure on the cost of production and at the same time, lack of power supply to the paper manufacturing units affecting the paper production.”

He also pointed out the fact that though India has a large available pool of unskilled and skilled workforce and the advantage of very low manpower costs; the outdated labor laws, however, (some predating India’s independence) are not conducive to a sound operating environment.

Paperless office: how is it affecting the paper industry?

The world is moving towards paperless offices and print runs are decreasing, so is it a threat for the paper industry? “The need for paper cannot be undermined. The paper requirement is growing phenomenally in packaging and speciality paper segment. The demand for paper may be decreasing in offices but surely increasing in the household segments. Government is giving special emphasis to education in the country which has resulted in increase in demand of paper as well,” replied the enthusiastic Gagan.

On Paperex 2013, New Delhi…

Paperex is now in its 11th edition and the number of exhibitors and the exhibition space has been surpassing its own past performances. “This year Paperex will be held in 14 exhibition halls covering 22,500 sq m exhibition area. As of now we have over 400 confirmed exhibitors, while our target is over 500 exhibitor for this year’s Paperex. A special thrust has been put on inviting international participation for Paperex and there will be group participation from China, France, Germany and Taiwan,” informed Gagan proudly.

“This year exhibition will be organized on a mega scale. Prior to the exhibition, we plan to organize a press meet and road shows to promote this leading business event. Besides, the exhibition is being promoted at industry platform meets and in trade media. Moreover, various activities during the exhibition are planned to ensure the quality audience at the event. This will include a three day international concurrent conference on “Global Pulp and Paper Industry: Problems and Prospects”, to be organized by Indian Agro & Recycled Paper Mills Association,” he added.

On asking about the support from other trade associations, Gagan replied, “We have support from all the major trade associations in India and abroad who are promoting this event. The event is being promoted by worldwide network of ITE Group Plc. Regular direct mailers and e-mailers are also being sent to promote the event.”

As a matter of fact, leading industry associations like the following have given their support to Paperex: AIAI (All India Associations of Industries, India); IARPMA (Indian Agro & Recycled Paper Mills Association, India); IPPTA (Indian Pulp & Paper Technical Association, India); CPPRI (Central Pulp & paper Research Institute, India); FPTA (Federation of Paper Traders Association of India); APPITA (Technical association for the pulp and paper industry of Australia and New Zealand); ABTCP (Brazilian Paper and Pulp Technical Association, Brazil); PI (Paper Engineers Association, Finland); ZELLCHEMING (German Pulp and Paper Chemists & Engineers Association, Germany); TAPPSA (Technical Association of Pulp & Paper Industry of South Africa); TAPPI (Technical Association of the pulp and paper Industry), USA; UPMA (U.P paper Merchant Association, India); and WASME (World Association for small and Medium Enterprises, India).

On a concluding note…

“The best in the paper industry will be showcased at Paperex 2013. This business event would add tremendous value to the knowledge of all those who visit Paperex,” concluded Gagan.

ExpoPrint 2014, Latin America

In Latin America, ExpoPrint is the most important printing event and in 2014, it will be held at the TransAmérica Expo Center from July 16 - 22, very soon after the Soccer World Cup. According to figures presented at Drupa 2012 by Werner Dornscheidt, the CEO and president of Messe Düsseldorf, ExpoPrint Latin America ranks as the 5th largest printing fair in the world. “Latin America is no longer an adjunct, it has become a hub for attracting investments, a solution for the directing of trade that, previously, was concentrated in the First World which is now stagnant. The ExpoPrint numbers confirm the growing curve of the importance of Brazil and Latin America and this will certainly increase in 2014”, said Sandra Keese, director of APS Feiras e Eventos which is the organizer of ExpoPrint Latin America 2014.In 2014 the event will feature two additional pavilions, making a total of 7 pavilion halls for the exhibition in São Paulo which is the industrial and commercial heart of Brazil.”

India International Printing & Packaging Fair (IIPPF) debuts with a moderate start

The inaugural edition of India International Printing & Packaging Fair (IIPPF) held recently at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from August 06-09, 2013 marked a good start with future perfect vision on digital printing. Organised by India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO), the fair witnessed a spectrum of focus exhibits on printing and packaging machineries as well and technological excellences.

Formally inaugurated by Rita Menon, chairperson and managing director, ITPO along with some captains of the industry, debut edition of IIPPF turned out to be a platform where major trade associations and leading industry players gathered to make new businesses and joint ventures. At the opening session, Rita Menon also released an exclusive directory of the Members of Delhi Printers’ Association.

Spotlighting a wide range of printing and packaging equipments and machineries, key segments covered at IIPPF include pre-press, post-press and finishing, packaging, converting machines and other innovative developments as well as time-saving novel solutions.

Seminar on future of digital printing

Onset of IIPPF set off with a thought-provoking seminar titled ‘Future Vision - Digital Printing’ conducted by a panel of eminent industry leaders, namely, Ranjan Kuthari, former-president, All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP); Pankaj Kalra, associate director & head production system group, Xerox India; and V Balakrishnan, executive general manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India. The seminar focused on the advent of digital printing which will be supplementing and complementing the existing offset printing industry.

Digital printing, which has generated tremendous interest across numerous industrial sectors in recent years, is set to flourish in India in the coming decade. In this concern, Pankaj Kalra pointed out that today’s business needs to have shortened the turnover time of ideate to print in less than four hours. There is an urgent need to replace older technology with the latest machines equipped with advanced speed, security and transparency. He further stated that the success of digital printing can be attributed to economies of high-quality print for short runs.

According to V Balakrishnan, future of offset v/s digital printing is mainly influenced by the market innovations and cutting-edge technologies. He further said, “Convenience is the key to today’s technology and the industry would continue to innovate.” He added that customisation, personalisation and colour have become obvious. Talking about the advantages of inkjet printing over laser printing, he informed that digital inkjet can accommodate much larger sizes compared to laser. He concluded, “Although the world is gradually drifting towards paperless office, the printed world is here to stay.”

In his keynote address, Ranjan Kuthari complimented ITPO for launching IIPPF 2013 to make the Indian printing and packaging sectors globally competitive. He mentioned, “Future trends of the digital printing indicate new growth patterns which would affect the related SMEs.” He further added that these future machines and innovations are amenable to operation even by less technically equipped operators. Wrapping-up of the seminar was marked with proposal of votes of thanks from Kamal Chopra, general secretary, Offset Printers’ Association, Ludhiana.

“India is going to be number one country in the world for printing”

says SR Sharma, chairman, PAMEX 2013, in conversation with Varsha Verma of Print & Publishing.

SR SharmaTo be held at India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida from November 14-17, 2013, PAMEX 2013 is one of the premier event for the printing and allied machinery industries in Asia. The event is organized by All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP) with TAFCON, New Delhi as associate organisers.

PAMEX is supported by the Government of India through Ministries of Commerce & Industry (Dept. of Industrial Policy & Promotion), Micro, Small & Medium Scale Enterprises and Urban Development & Poverty Alleviation (Directorate of Printing) as well as other international and national bodies’ like IPAMA (Indian Printing, Packaging and Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association); FIP (Federation of India Publishers); INS (Indian Newspaper Society); VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau - German Engineering Federation); PEIAC (Printing And Printing Equipment Industries Association of China); and NPES (the association for suppliers of printing, publishing and converting technologies, US).

Along with 60 affiliate Associations of AIFMP, PAMEX is a unique show “by the printers, for the printers and of the printers,” says SR Sharma, chairman, PAMEX 2013, while conversing with Varsha Verma. Excerpts.

P&P: How is Indian printing industry poised vis-à-vis its foreign counterparts?

SR Sharma: India is going to be number one country in the world for printing. Due to low cost and ready to adopt new technologies, they are ready to change the entire gamut of printing and the Indian printing industry will come out as future of print. The scenario is changing in the Indian printing industry, wherein world is showing a decline in the growth/ performance, but in India, we are showing the upward growth at a very fast speed.

P&P: What are the current challenges in the printing industry?

SR Sharma: There are various challenges in different sectors. For example, in the Digital Imaging sector, the challenge printers’ face with the advent of computers and laser beams creating print-ready graphics is the capital expenditure it requires to put in to stay ahead of the competition. With a small print shop grossing $250,000 annually and a computer-to-plate (CTP) system costing upwards of $100,000, putting the two together can cause quite the financial bind. The challenge is only compounded because the competition has already made the commitment to technology, and thus impacts the comparative quality between those who have and those who have not. The old ways of cameras, negatives, stripping and plate burning can still accomplish everything they accomplished last year. The difference is the competition can cut hours (or days) off of production time and win the quote on delivery. One must also consider the fact that computer-generated imaging is perfect compared to manual prepress. Staying on top of technology is a daunting task.

Now, let’s talk of inkjet printing which forgoes plates and rollers and instead prints directly on the substrate with a series of spray nozzles carrying process and additional spot colours. Not only can the ink jet printer run at 10,000 copies an hour (equal to an offset press), it can print each copy differently: 10,000 personalized letters, envelopes, annual reports or business cards. For the traditional commercial offset printer to compete with this kind of versatility is impossible. The answer is either to upgrade the capability or concede a large market share to the competition.

Another challenging area is the customer service. Customers still like vendors who know names and remember their birthdays. The challenge for the printing industry today is to not lose sight of what makes the business run while running the business: customers. All the gadgets and incredibly advanced equipment imaginable mean nothing if there are no sales and steady profits to pay for these expenditures. Although it’s easier to communicate with customers today with e-mails, faxes, cell phones and even video conferencing, the challenge is to never forget the customer is a person wanting their printing done right the first time and on schedule.

P&P: What were the reasons for the change in venue from Pragati Maidan to India Expo Centre in Greater Noida and what has been the response from the exhibitors?

SR Sharma: The India Exposition Centre & Mart Ltd is designed especially for hosting world-class events and exhibitions and offers a high standard of services and facilities and has been hosting many eminent shows. A multifaceted events facility, the center has the capacity to hold a variety of events from 50 to 5,000 guests. Built with a modernistic outlook, the India Expo Center EXPO XXI has been merged with the unique blend of technology with state-of-the-art facilities and safety standards as per international standards. The recently concluded Printpack 2013 has proved that this venue will be the good option for organizing such events.

Initially, a few of the exhibitors were concerned about it the venue is of course located about half an hour away from the central part of Delhi, which I am sure is no great a distance when we all see many international venues in China and other countries, including one in Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, etc. However, for the smooth and hassle-free commuting of the exhibitors & visitors, complementary Shuttle Service from Botanical Garden Metro Station, Noida will be provided which will be available on all four days of the exhibition. Also after knowing the facilities at the venue, such exhibitors are convinced that the show will be much more organized as compared to earlier editions.

P&P: How big would be the PAMEX this time, in terms of the total exhibition space, etc?

SR Sharma: The indication of response and with the active support and guidance of the president, All India Federation of Master Printers and the Council Members and with the sincere efforts extended by Tafcon team members, we hope to achieve about 50% increase in the exhibition area compared to the last editions. This

mega institutionalized biennial international exhibition will cover an area of about 18,000 sq m in 5 Halls. Over 100 exhibitors have already confirmed participation and about 200 are in the pipeline.

P&P: What new activities have been planned this year?

SR Sharma: A well integrated two days print conference is planned alongwith the event under the chairmanship of VK Malik, past president, AIFMP, in which country papers from USA, Germany, Australia, China, Sri Lanka and India will be presented. The conference will be supported by NPES, VDMA, PEIAC etc.

P&P: What marketing initiatives are being taken to promote the fair?

SR Sharma: Apart from the publicity carried through trade journals and promotion being made through various events organized by AIFMP, we are also organizing one-to-one meetings and visits by senior delegations from AIFMP and TAFCON to various international trade shows including DRUPA- Germany, APPP Expo- Shanghai, Chinaprint 2013- Beijing, Chinacoat- Guangzhou etc. We will soon be exhilarating the road shows in various small and medium cities spread all over India. During the show also, we will be highlighting all the new launches of machines or technology through various mediums (print, electronic and online).

P&P: Any message for our readers....

SR Sharma: Block your diaries and firm your travel plans for PAMEX which will be a unique show “by the printers, for the printers and of the printers.”
