Intrapac India will showcase a wide range of packaging solutions, machinery, and allied products, including plastic packaging, metal packaging, glass packaging, paper packaging, filling, capping, sealing, biodegradable packaging, protective packaging, automation and robotics, tube packaging, mono cartons, pharmaceutical packaging, traceability & tracking, logistics, film, and molding.

The Indian Printing Packaging & Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA) says it has received an overwhelming response from the industry for its inaugural event, IntraPac India, scheduled to take place at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida from 14 to 17 March 2024.

IntraPac India is set to comprehensively cover all the facets of the Indian Packaging Industry, tailored to meet the specific needs of the Indian market. The Indian market’s requirements vary significantly from those of western countries. 

“Our unique blend of geographical diversity, a vast and diverse population, and varying per capita incomes make our market distinct. Consequently, our needs and preferences are divergent, necessitating customized solutions and offerings that cater to the specific dynamics of the Indian market. IntraPac India has been designed on the same lines – To fulfil the aspirations of the Market,” the company said.

As a non-profit organization, IPAMA says it is dedicated to making this event accessible to businesses of all sizes by maintaining affordable rates. Even small companies can participate and reap the benefits of this world-class event, much like IPAMA’s Printpack India.

To enhance the experience for business visitors, a dedicated live portal has been created for direct meetings with exhibitors. Visitors can conveniently register online and download their badges, which grant them access to the respective exhibition halls.

The participation of 100 companies spans a wide spectrum, including packaging machines, flexible packaging items, corrugation boxes, paper bag making machines, paper cup & plate manufacturing, small rigid boxes, rigid plastic packaging, tin production, adhesives, labels, filling and sealing solutions, cooling & ventilation solutions, rubber sheets, waterproofing machines, converting machines, automation segments, and many more.

Since the launch of the exhibition, IPAMA representatives have been actively promoting IntraPac India at international trade shows. The marketing teams have also been engaged in visiting printing and packaging exhibitions organized by various organizations and associations across different Indian states.

IPAMA has forged partnerships with key industry players, including the Packaging Industry Association of India (PIAI), All India Plastic Manufacturers’ Association (AIPMA), Indian Flexible Packaging & Folding Carton Manufacturers Association, and the Association of Sealant Professionals in India (ASPA) to enhance the promotion of the exhibition. IPAMA has also reached out to several other associations to establish further partnerships, with some agreements currently in the advanced stages of finalization.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
