Strong growth in packaging sector in the near future


Internet is reducing print and advertising market volumes in the newspaper, magazine and
catalogue sectors

The trend to eReader like iPad, Kindle or others is responsible for the decline in book printing
Packaging, label, film printing are classic growth markets and are scarcely affected by the
internet and digital printing (apart from labels)

Historically KBA is very strong in packaging with its medium- and large-format presses

In 2013 more than 60% of all Rapidas went to packaging printers around the world

Long presses for UV or Hybrid printing with inline-coating and cold-foil module
like this 14-unit Rapida for Bulgaria are becoming more popular in Europe

In the meantime KBA installed presses with energy-saving HR- and LED-UV dryers,
e.g. at commercial printers in France and Benelux

Presses like this RA 106 SIS-10+L+T+T+L ALV2 450 mm raised for Bulgaria, with inline-coating and cold-foil equipment, becoming more popular in Europe
