According to conservative estimates, the country has between 1,200 and 1,400 new sheetfed offset printing presses running. The number for pre-owned presses would be even higher. While Indian sheetfed offset market is traditionally dominated by pre-owned kits, new printing presses are making their presence felt, as installations of new presses continue to grow. This trend was especially pronounced in the period between 2010 and 2018.

The special feature focuses on five major players in the offset sheetfed market — Heidelberg, Koenig & Bauer, Komori, Manroland Sheetfed and RMGT — lists their popular offerings.
