India is fast adopting the digital printing technology. The rise of digital printing in key industries such as photo, publishing and labels, apart from signage, has contributed to its growing installation base. The market share for HP 8000, 9000 and 10000 eco-solvent printers stand at close to 40%. The HP Designjet 8000s and 9000s series are primarily targeted for traditional sign shops and screen printers as well as digitally equipped print service providers (PSPs). They are especially ideal for print and sign shops looking to enter into the large format printing market that may be capital constraint but yet expect a robust, comprehensive system. HP Designjet 10000s enables PSPs, sign shops and screen printers to boost their business by producing durable high-quality signage. Till date, there are about 100 installations in India.
In this backdrop, Hewlett-Packard India Sales Pvt Ltd has recently reduced the prices of its ecosolvent inks. According to Pankaj Goswami, country category manager – large format industrial printing, imaging and printing group, Hewlett-Packard India Sales Pvt Ltd, “As a market leader, we analyzed the current market trends which demanded a better value for PSPs. We are determined to help the print service providers in establishing their business, exceeding their customers’ desires and setting their business apart from their competition. At HP, we strongly recommend the use of original HP supplies. The safe, sophisticated low-solvent ink technology used in the HP Designjet 8000s, 9000s and 10000s features high concentrations of colorants creating rich, saturated colours for brilliant signs.
