The book print industry in India is encountering new challenges; and unlike rest of the world, it has nothing to do with (declining) demand for books. test

As per available data, based on consumption of paper and adhesives by the Indian book printers, the volume growth in FY 2012-13, over the previous year is short of 20%. This is driven by burgeoning demand for textbooks and guides among India's young population.

Glimpses from the previous open house

The first such meet was hosted on 1 February 2013 and the theme revolved around business and technology. During the Open House book print CEOs saw (and discussed) the latest trends in bookbinding at Welbound's Thiruvananthapuram plant. For a complete picture gallery click here
 
Having said that the publishers have to confront new issues like change in syllabus, modification in academic schedules, logistics and of course: cost efficiency. They are not willing to wait till eternity for the printer to deliver one million books; instead they provide work to those who deliver before time. They want printers to extend services beyond printing and take up distribution. Delivering very small numbers, quick replenishment of stocks - just in time, zero rejections, environmental friendly operations and streamlining with the publishers' workflow and so on: these are the demands from the publishing industry.

A dialogue between the print buyers, printers and solution providers create a module for operational efficiency in finding the right solutions. Welbound Worldwide is pleased to announce its next open house, in Thiruvananthapuram on 20 July to discuss the "Dynamics of Book Printing 2013".
