PackPlus 2021 is said to be India’s most oversized packaging, converting, and supply chain exhibition. PackPlus claims to have established itself as an excellent business-to-business platform for the packaging sector in India throughout the years. It is a gathering place for industry players, influential experts, live demonstrations, product debuts, and market trends from all aspects of the packaging, converting, and supply chain industries.

The International Packaging Conclave, which coincides with PackPlus, New Delhi, is a knowledge-sharing interactive platform for the packaging sector. Its goal will define the packaging industry’s role and obligations in satisfying the new FSSAI requirements.

In the Packplus – Rajat Wahi, Chandu bhai Virani, Gurpreet Bhimber, Shailendra Singh, Sanjay Gupta, Dr Ashok Tyagi, Nayandeep Banerjee, the speakers in the inaugural session talk on the sustainability matter. ‘Envisioning 2025 – Overcoming the challenges of food packaging’ is the hot potato of the show.

Sustainability in the packaging sector is the most significant challenge across the globe. There are two things for sustainability ‘intent’ and ‘technology’. If your company intends to become sustainable, you can work, and secondly, the technology – more upgrades to the technology are more advancements for the packaging sector.

In the last 40 years in the packaging industry, there has been a considerable amount of investment but fewer technological advancements. Plastic in packaging is making a significant issue. The packaging sector is continuously evolving to decrease the use of plastic in packaging.

Plastic packaging is highly impractical and negatively influences the earth’s ecosystem, which we all rely on. Most plastic garbage is transferred to landfills or disposed of into the environment due to poor product design and a lack of political infrastructure.

The packaging sector is one of the largest sectors of the Indian economy. After the pandemic, the packaging sector is booming. For this, 100% recycled plastic has now emerged in the market. The packaging is now becoming sustainable. After use, the plastic can be converted into granules and used again in the process.

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.
