DuPont Electronics & Industrial is implementing a 7% price increase on Cyrel plates, effective 1 March 2022. Over the past year, the company has continued to incur significant cost increases in critical raw materials for Cyrel Solutions, and freight costs have also increased drastically for critical modes and routes.  

“The organization has been working hard to mitigate cost impacts and will continue with this effort. However, this price increase is necessary due to the significant and prolonged impact”, explains Tucker Norton, global business director at the company.

DuPont is committed to fulfilling the customers’ needs for the best quality products

Tucker added, “Despite global challenges in logistics, our team is working tirelessly to keep our customers worldwide supplied at required levels. Especially during this pandemic, we continue our commitment to meet our customers’ needs for high-quality products”.

The DuPont Cyrel Solutions team remains committed to delivering our products in a timely and efficient manner to support your critical needs and is working to ensure our performance, quality, and reliability as we navigate inflationary pressures.


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!
