Xsys has announced price increases across the nyloprint product range from 1 February 2022. The increase comes as a direct response to the unprecedented levels of cost inflation, which up until now have been mitigated by the company through various cost-reduction initiatives and projects, as well as technology improvements and other efficiency gains.

However, in 2021, the cost inflation being absorbed by the company has increased to unequaled levels. Cost inflation is being passed on by suppliers and is present across a number of input costs as detailed below – 

  • Raw material and feedstock suppliers are implementing double-digit price increases.
  • Soaring gas and electricity costs have resulted in significant inflation in Xsys production costs and increased costs from suppliers.
  • Freight costs are increasing, with the World Container Index at +15% since July 2021. This is having an impact on the supply of raw materials, as well as sea and land freight within the the company supply chain network.

Xsys will increase the price between 7% and 15%

The additional inflation seen in 2021 shows no signs of retracting. As a result, the company will implement a price increase of between 7% and 15% across the nyloprint product range, effective 1 February 2022.

“Securing the supply of our products in a timely manner to customers remains our priority. We will maintain full support of our customers with technical service and quality products during this challenging economic period,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president at the company. “Furthermore, Xsys will continue to invest in projects and efficiency drives designed to counter the inflation where possible.”


The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
