After announcing multiple deals on the first two days of the 15th Printpack India, Bobst India announced another deal on the third day of the event. The company said it has sold a Novafold 110 A2 folder gluer to Meerut-based Agarwal Pack Products.

We have tried and tested a number of machines and there is nothing like a Bobst machine. Their after sales service is also excellent. Also, we were able to buy a brand new machine because of easy financing by the banks,” said Vinay Agarwal of Agarwal Pack Products.

Agarwal Pack Products already uses a Bobst Novacut, which the company bought brand new a few years ago. It prints and converts a variety of cartons and boxes but its main area of specialization is sweet boxes. In the printing department, it has five offset presses. Talking about the carton packaging industry, Agarwal said that it is on a growth path and the 2022-2023 financial year should be excellent.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
