UFlex’s FlexiTubes at Beautyworld Middle East – 30 October – 1 November 2023

Creative and eco-friendly tube packaging

A large selection of FlexiTubes’ environmentally friendly packaging tubes, including Remika will also be on display at Beautyworld Middle East from 30 October - 1 November 2023

FlexiTubes, the packaging tubes manufacturing division of multinational flexible packaging materials and solutions company UFlex, will showcase its wide range of sustainable packaging tubes at stand number J-27 at Beautyworld Middle East 2023, being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 30 October to 1 November 2023.

Tube-packaging forms that are sustainable and customizable have become increasingly popular over time. To help its clients and brands improve the customer experience for their products, UFlex’s FlexiTubes has been at the forefront of creating tailored solutions.

FlexiTubes will showcase its extensive collection of tubes at Beautyworld Middle East 2023, which are designed under the ABCE principle of Aesthetics, Barrier, Counterfeit arrest, Eco-friendly. This concept successfully combines sustainability, usefulness, and aesthetic appeal in a tube packaging style.

FlexiTubes will also showcase its paper-based packaging tube, known as Kraftika. The idea behind this tube was to lessen the overall environmental impact by decreasing the usage of plastics at the source.

With Kraftika, plastic is swapped out with FSC-certified virgin kraft paper, which has a high bursting factor, and high moisture resistance, and can help reduce a tube’s body weight by up to 45%. In addition to offering all the characteristics of traditional tubes, Kraftika tubes are environmentally friendly, which increases their acceptance compared to traditional packaging tubes. Even with continued use and a decrease in content, the tube’s overall construction offers bounce-back qualities and stiffness, preventing the tube from collapsing.

A large selection of FlexiTubes’ environmentally friendly packaging tubes, including Remika will also be on display.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
