For Toyo Ink, the main theme at the 15th Printpack India was sustainable print. The company showcased several products, starting from low migration inks to cobalt- and mineral-free inks, barrier coatings, UV inks and coatings, liquid inks, solvent-free lamination, and pressure-sensitive adhesives. It also launched two new products.

In the previous Printpack that took place in 2019, Toyo launched its made-in-India UV ink product basket, which was a huge success. This year it launched its water-based flexo and UV flexo inks that are also manufactured in its Indian plants. The initial feedback for these inks from customer tests have been very positive, says Toyo Inks India.

The company also highlighted its eco-friendly products such as water-based inks, and biomass products along with a range of coatings. The Toyo Ink Group’s Sustainability Vision TSV2050/2030, introduced this year, has set forth an ambitious target to make the company’s production operations carbon neutral by 2050, and the new product launches are aligned with that trajectory. Toyo Ink India was established in 2006 and has two manufacturing plants in the country, at Greater Noida and at Bharuch in Gujarat.

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!
