Printing South China 2017
Following its previous success, the 24th South China International Exhibition on Printing Industry (Printing South China 2017) will be staged during 1-3 March 2017 at Area B, China Import and Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou, PR China, showcasing a comprehensive range of technological achievements and developments on printing, carton packaging and paper converting across 8 themes zones, where over 1,000 exhibitors will be present.
According to the report of “The Future of Folding Cartons to 2020” released by Smithers Pira in 2015, the global folding cartons market will be worth over US$100 billion by the year 2020. The market is currently dominated by the demand from the Asia-Pacific region. In 2014, the region shared 52% of the world’s total consumption and it will continue to grow to over 60% by 2020. China plays a critical role in such increasing dominance, and it is forecasted that China will increase its share of the market to 39% by 2020, while India will also consume over 6% of the total in the same year.
As the popularity of dry foods surged, Asia’s demand towards folding cartons has been driven up. The improvement in distribution chains and the expansion of supermarkets in the region also stimulated folding carton consumption in frozen and chilled food applications. How to differentiate their products on the highly competitive supermarket shelf has become a major concern to brand owners, and the supply chain is under the pressure to come up with innovative technologies, processes and designs. More resources should be invested on new printing technology in order to sharpen the competitive edge.
To cope with the market development, Printing South China 2017 will set up “Post-press & Packaging Converting Halls”, where following exhibitors were confirmed: Guowang, Jinbao, Fangbang, Zhongke, Hongming, Keqiang, Guangming, Zhejiang Ruida, Ounuo, Ruian Jinggong, Zenbo, Sini, Hangzhou Cron, Xinda, Xinwei, Ruiguang, Aoke, Huibo, Daqiao, Fengming, Zono, Donghang, Wenzhou Yongshun, Xinfeng, Litong, Aote, Yasen and Siegwerk. The latest products and technologies of carton packaging and paper converting will be showcased to help industry players upgrade their equipment, transform their business, and cope with all kinds of challenges encountered in the market.
The China International Exhibition on Label Printing Technology 2017 (Sino-Label 2017) will be staged during 1-3 March 2017 at Hall 10.2-11.2, Area B, China Import and Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou, PR China, where worldwide exhibitors will showcase top-notch label printing technologies.
Digital printing will be a focus, as there is a growing demand in labels. According to a report from WiseGuyReports, due to the increasing demand for labels from China and India, the label market in Asia Pacific will grow from US$12.412 billion in 2015 to US$18.306 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.69%. The Asian Labeling and Product Decoration Market Study 2015 by Alexander Watson Associates (AWA) also shows that Asia is the largest label market, where China contributes over half of the region’s demand, followed by India and Japan at 15% and 11% respectively. It is worth mentioning that variable data printing has seen an increase in worldwide production, covering 13% of produced labels.
Variable data printing is an important part of digital printing, which has seen significant improvement over the years and remained as the industry focus. Digital printing enjoys short production cycle, high efficiency, reduced waste and low cost, and its features on variable data printing and on-demand printing could meet the rising demand for short run production and customization in the label printing market in recent years.
