Infosource, a leading global marketing intelligence and advisory company in the Production & Industrial (P&I) printing industry, successfully operating in the EMEA region for over 30 years. During this time they have established long-lasting, trustworthy business relationships with all manufacturers as well as with thousands of individuals throughout the globe covering different industries, including Digital Color Press, Large Format Printers, B&W and Color Production Devices, Direct-to-Garment and Direct-to-Film Printers.

According to the Infosource P&I Team, the landscape in the Industrial Printing world is rapidly evolving in many and various aspects and directions. Our recent study, “European LFP Market Analysis mid-year 2023,” revealed numerous tendencies and trends within the Large Format (LF) European industry. When considering ink technologies, UV Curing continuous to be among the preferred ink type, due to its lower power consumption and wider media printing capability. Narrowing down the focus to Eastern Europe,  UV Curing unit sales increased in H1 2023 vs H1 2022 by +33.2%. Another emerging ink technology is the Latex/ Resin in which we see many new traditional and well established LFP manufacturers (e.g. Epson, Roland) entering this market.    

Moreover, having interviewed a number of people, mainly in top management positions at various LF manufacturers, it is evident that there is a high demand for the introduction of new applications and software, a wider variety of media and substrates, as well as working processes either for increased productivity or for custom made niche applications.

All these aspects will be demonstrated and analysed at the IPI Conference, that will take place on 28-29 November 2023, at Crowne Plaza Düsseldorf-Neuss. This event is  organised by ESMA, the European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association.

During the IPI Conference, more than 60 print technology experts – global corporations, start-ups, established market players, newcomers and academic research centres – will showcase their solutions, innovative new ideas and discuss future trends within the Industrial Printing world, that lead to disruptive developments.   

Some of the participants include: Agfa, Epson, Fiery, Fujifilm Ink Solutions, IST INTECH, Kyocera, Marabu, Meteor Inkjet, Nazdar, Ricoh, Seiko Instruments, Sun Chemical, Toshiba, etc (for a complete exhibitor list, click here).

IPI’s extensive program opens with high-profile keynote speeches to inspire and inform the industry:

  • CCL Industries shows the newest trends in Human-Machine Interface manufacturing.
  • Saule Technologies, the world’s pioneer in perovskite solar cells, explains the inkjet printing process behind their production.
