Press release from the issuing company

PRINT UV 15 Attendees Receive Special Pricing

Reston, VA - PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, the research unit of NPES, has announced special pricing on its recently published study, "UV/EB Curing Technologies in Printing,for attendees at PRINT UV 15, coming March 1-3, 2015 to Las Vegas, Nevada. The 50% discount off standard PRIMIR study retail pricing, enables conference participants to purchase the Full Study at $1,990 and/or the Executive Summary at $498.

The timely research, conducted for PRIMIR by I.T. Strategies, is a first-of-its-kind look at the North American market for UV/EB printing applications complete with an overview of energy-curing technologies, sizing of each market segment, technology drivers, and growth rates along with implications for graphic communications firms.

According to Steve Metcalf, President & CEO of Air Motion Systems|AMS UV, who served as co-chair of the PRIMIR task force guiding this effort, "This PRIMIR study will be a tremendous resource for print pros who gather at this year's PRINT UV 15 conference. Commissioned to provide clarity and focus on the energy-curing print market, the study also identifies major barriers and opportunities, including LED UV, for adoption. Solid ROI can be achieved, typically in less than one year, with the differentiating factor between those who have and those who have not adopted UV-curable print technology the detailed knowledge of existing costs and ability to project how those costs would change with the deployment of UV technology."

The PRIMIR study projects in North America a 2.5% or greater combined growth rate for energy curing print equipment and consumables manufacturers through 2017. Growth for units (equipment, plates, etc.) may vary as some average selling prices decline (inkjet systems) and some increase (flexographic presses).

The study concludes further adoption of energy-curing technologies in the printing industry is highly dependent upon manufacturers in the energy-curing industry collectively devising strategies to raise awareness, educate print providers and packaging converters, and market the advantages of energy curing inks. In addition to productivity and efficiency benefits for print providers, customer brand owners benefit from consistent quality and a more vibrant final product.
