HP announces its digital printing portfolio across Asia Pacific and Japan

11th October 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, October 11, 2013: HP, a player in printing, personal systems, software, services and IT infrastructure, today announced continued adoption of its industry-leading digital printing portfolio across Asia Pacific and Japan, highlighting new customer adoptions driven by the ability of HP technology to provide differentiation and improve customers’ competitive advantage.

The analog printing market is projected to grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of just 1.2 percent through 2016, challenging printing companies to identify ways to grow business with existing customers and to reach new audiences. With HP Digital Presses growing at double-digit percent CAGR, HP delivers this path to growth, helping printing companies expand their businesses with a broader range of applications and faster turnaround times.

Gido van Praag, vice president and general manager, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Asia Pacific and Japan, said, “Changing commercial printing business conditions are forcing printing companies to take a hard look at their technology, application offerings and how they create a competitive advantage in the marketplace. HP’s digital solutions’ portfolio is the future of the printing industry, fueling a transformation from analog to digital while offering printing companies new avenues to enhance profitability.”

Advancing the industry with HP Indigo Digital Presses

  • HP recently marked the 20-year anniversary of HP Indigo’s first press launch at IPEX 93. This is a symbolic milestone for HP Indigo, which is now experiencing strong adoption of its fourth generation of presses.

Customers invest in HP Inkjet Web Presses to grow businesses

Printing nearly 2 billion pages per month at customer sites worldwide—enough to circle the Earth more than 14 times every month—HP Inkjet Web Presses are helping customers transform their businesses. Pages printed on HP Inkjet Web Presses grew high double-digit percent in Q3 2013 versus a year ago, driven by customers such as Hucais Group Co.Ltd with HP T410 and T350 Color Inkjet Web Presses and CTPS Digiprints with HP T410 and HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Presses in China, as well as UK-based Communisis, which has doubled its capacity with recent installations.

Additionally, Philippines-based Vibal Publishing House Inc., will also be adding the HP T230 Color Inkjet Web Press to its HP printing fleet to grow their publishing business.

Strong momentum continues with HP’s recently launched large format printing platforms

Following the recent introduction of HP Latex 3000 Printer and HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press, early customer adoption has been quick. These include installations of the HP Latex 3000 Printer by printing companies such as Shanghai Kangda Penhua Co., Ltd, ABC Photosigns, Q-Advertising Co., Ltd and Active-Adval. Active-Adval, Australia’s largest point of sale (POS) display and signage organization, is also the first in Asia Pacific to order and install the newly available HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press.
