Organised by the HKTDC and CIEC Exhibition Company (HK) Limited, the 13th edition of the Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair will run from 27-30 April 2018 at the AsiaWorld-Expo.

The digital printing and 3D printing sector dominate the printing industry in recent years. Per the Smithers Pira report, the 3D printing market is set for an explosive growth from US $5.8 billion in 2016 to US$55.8 billion by 2027, with an annual growth rate of 23.0%. On the other hand, digital printing transcends traditional printing in terms of productivity and reliability and is able to satisfy the ever-changing needs of buyers. Smithers Pira also predicted that the digital printing market will remain strong and will reach 225% of the 2013 market value by 2024.
