Miraclon has partnered with DigiPrint Technologies, a Pakistani technology solutions provider for the print and packaging industries. DigiPrint, which is based in Islamabad, will be Miraclon’s local distribution partner, responsible for developing and implementing the sales and marketing of Miraclon’s products throughout Pakistan.

Founded in 2019, DigiPrint technologies specializes in the print and packaging sectors, including labels, wide web, and corrugated technology. DigiPrint also represents other key brands in the market, including Vianord and Glunz & Jensen.

Kris Capiau, Packaging Sales Director for the Middle East, Africa, Turkey and Eastern Europe at Miraclon Corporation comments, “Pakistan is a key growth market for flexo printing, and we are seeing an increasing number of gravure jobs are being converted to flexo processes. This opens up a unique opportunity for Miraclon’s Flexcel NX solutions. With a host of existing installations of this technology already established in Pakistan, we are confident that DigiPrint will help us to offer even better support to both new and existing customers in this market.”

“With its high quality and low operational cost, we believe that the coming years will see flexo printing increase its dominance in the print and packaging industries,” says Muhammad Irfan Siddique, managing director of DigiPrint technologies. “Miraclon’s Flexcel NX systems are an excellent example of the many benefits of flexo technology, and sit at the forefront of this trend towards a flexo future.”

Muhammad concludes, “It is our vision to become the leading flexographic technology supplier in Pakistan. We believe that with Miraclon’s knowledge and technological solutions, we will be able to offer an even higher quality of service to our customers, enabling them to further improve their production efficiencies which, in turn, will help us to achieve that goal.”

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!
