China has ambitious plans to become the world’s second largest printing power indicated through the 12th five-year development plan for the printing industry. The plan clearly outlines that by the end of 2015 the gross output value of China’s printing industry will exceed 1.1 trillion RMB.
Hitting this target will be no easy feat especially with the challenges that the industry are facing including that digital printing has contributed to a restructuring of the industry, green printing requires better supply chain management and the fact that traditional printing companies are looking for a new business mode which will lead to sustainable development. All these challenges were discussed at the ‘Print Tech China 2012 summit’ which had served as an ideal platform to promote communication, innovation and cooperation within the industry.
With support from Japan Federation of Printing Industries (JFPI), Noppen hosted the Print Tech China 2012 Summit in Shanghai. The Summit was attended by over 100 prominent industry leaders, senior directors and engineers from the leading printing enterprises and major printing equipment manufacturers, this congress illustrated China's latest industrial policies, advanced solutions for digital printing as well as traditional printing, and the most up-to-date printing industry forecast on major segments in China.
