The screen-printing industry in India is multicoloured and multi-layered. It has its presence across segments like ceramic, industrial, CDs, POPs, advertising and unconventional digital printing domains like textile. Though the sector is young, the screen-printing industry has been continuously expanding at a healthy annual growth rate in excess of 15 percent. “As the country gears up to seize opportunities in manufacturing sector, I do believe that there exists a huge potential and scope of functional/industrial printing, although it remains largely hidden from view. Therefore, it is important for us to keep fostering innovation and creativity by celebrating these achievements of individuals and brands,” says Raj Manek, Executive Director & Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd.
