Mumbai-based Nulith launched a number of new solutions for the flexo industry at the recently concluded Labelexpo India 2022 held in Greater Noida from 10-13 November. The company will now distribute CtP systems and plate mounters for flexo printers, and IML films.

We have decided to distribute CtP systems from China-based Cron and plate mounters from Auclean, which is also a Chinese company. We will also distribute IML films from Turkey-based Polilux. We have been supplying IML coating from Germany’s Actega for many years now. Now we will be able to supply IML films as well. The range of flexo prepress solutions that we can supply is robust and comprehensive,” says Suresh Shah of Nulith.

In India, Nulith distributes digital flexo plates and coatings from Germany’s Actega. It also supplies inks and blankets.

Flexo technology gaining ground

Shah says Nulith will continue to focus on the flexo printing industry, both narrow and wide web, as the sector is seeing rapid expansion in India.

We serve both narrow and wide web customers and both these verticals are important to us. We foresee a phase of rapid growth in the industry in the years ahead. So, we will continue to work on bringing in new solutions,” he says.

Talking about Labelexpo India, Shah says the 2022 edition was very good with quality footfall.

Labelexpo India 2022 took place after a long gap of four years and everybody was excited. We met a lot of our existing as well as potential customers. Labelexpo India has always been a great platform to meet all stakeholders from the label industry, whether it is machine suppliers, label printers and converters, or material suppliers. We have enjoyed our participation this year,” Shah concludes. 

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.
