Printing as an art of graphic communication is so ancient that it is not certain when it was invented. It is reported to have originated in China. In the late 20th century flexography began to find new and significant applications as an alternative process used in newspaper printing presses. This was because of the simplicity and ease of the flexographic ink-distribution system, which only requires a single roller to determine the thickness of the ink applied, in contrast to the 10 or so rollers needed in conventional newspaper presses using oil-based inks.
The Indian Print Industry is heading towards technological enhancement. The Printing Industry is gearing up to absorb the upcoming methods of printing like flexo printing and UV inks. In the coming years, the market for printing is expected to grow 6% annually. Over the last 5 years the printing Industry of India received an investment of over $2.9 billion and is currently the fastest growing printing market around the world. The $7.3 billion worth printing industry of India is providing employment to 400,000 people directly and 1.5 million indirectly. Thus, due to demand it is best to invest in this project.
