After many date changes, ProPak India 2021 finally took place from 20 to 22 October in Pragati Maidan in New Delhi and experienced good footfalls throughout the event. The crowd levels were unexpected as Covid-19 is still having an impact and many visitors are still avoiding large gatherings and the exhibitions that have begun.

The three day Propack exhibition helped us to understand the breadth of the packaging industry. There is a hunger for technology, change, and information that made us realize that the industry needs to keep creating awareness on many topics. The continuous sharing of knowledge and experience of both the suppliers and the customers is needed to build back the planned growth of the industry and economy.

While we were there throughout the three days of the event we interacted with many exhibitors and on the last day, Control Print at their stand to discuss their experience of ProPak India.

At the Control Print stand, we met with Heena Mistry, the company’s marketing coordinator for events. On display was the company’s industrial printer for coding and marking.

The impression we got at the stand was that even though the footfall in the event was not yet as large as in Indian industry shows before the Covid-19 pandemic, the visitors who did come lead to very genuine leads. Mistry said, “Whatever leads we got are very genuine. Since this is the first exhibition after the Covid-19 pandemic, I think people are still scared, but they are coming out. The pandemic has not affected our company at all. In fact, our company started a new initiative, where we manufactured surgical masks during the pandemic, we were not sitting idle.”

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 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.
