Tridev Industries — mostly into lipsticks and liquid lipsticks packaging — showcased its cosmetic packaging products at the recently concluded CosmoHome Tech Expo, held from 19 – 21 July at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. 

Tridev Industries imports its packaging technology from China while the manufacturing takes place at its plant in Bawana Industrial Area, New Delhi. The lipstick packaging samples displayed at the show displayed a premium finish. The company supplies cosmetic packaging products to some of India’s leading brands and cosmetics startups.

Akshay Midha from Tridev Industries said the only factors to be kept in mind while designing the packaging for these products are quality and finishing because in cosmetics you buy what you see. The cosmetics industry in India is very big but still at a growing stage, he said. “With all the startups that are coming up, the future is very bright. I would prefer people forget about China or any other country and start buying from India because we have all the facilities now. We have all kinds of finishes that brands look for and the quality that they seek.”

Midha said their USP is how you take care of a product from the first step of the manufacturing process to the last step when the customers have the product in their hands. “Maintaining quality and finish is the main aspect. And that’s what we have been doing.”

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
