Delhi-based Laser Dietech was established in 2013 and initially started making dies. As customer needs and demands grew, it upgraded its products and services with rubber, zinc blocks, and magnesium blocks. In the last two years, the company began manufacturing etching machines for dies under the name LDT India in a separate premise.

“At Laser Dietech we were very eager for the PrintPack India 2022 exhibition as we had to launch our new machines for making die blocks for the industry. We have sold four machines in four days of the exhibition and still, the fifth day is left. We are hoping for more visitors to come to our stand and purchase our machines,” said Mohit Chhabra, partner at Laser Dietech on the penultimate day of the show.

Laser DieTech is a supplier of steel rule-cutting dies and ancillary products in India. It manufactures a comprehensive range of products for some of the leading monocarton and corrugated packaging companies. “Our company’s objective is to provide your company with the latest ‘press ready’ die-cutting solutions, delivered on time at a competitive price with full technical service and support,” concluded Chhabra.

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 growing 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.
