Last month the 34th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries or Chinaplas 2021 was held in Shenzhen. Packaging machine manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H) presented the latest solutions for extrusion, printing, and converting during the expo.

Among its film applications, Windmöller & Hölscher presented its entire machine portfolio. It showcased recyclable MDO-PE films, PET replacement, CPP, and barrier films at W&H stall at Chinaplas 2021. According to the company, some hot topics of industrial packaging are complete PP woven machines for producing hot-air sealed block bottom valve bags, which will be regulated to be one of the standards of Chinese cement packaging. 

Another much-discussed technology is the AD Plastic II for waterproofed PE valve bags, which is also made by hot air technology and finds wide application for packing powdery products.

W&H also presented Garant bag-making machines for paper and bag-making machines from Bäumer & Bäumer (B&B) for side-gusseted bags with re-closures and pouches inline spout insertion at the exhibition booth.

“A thoroughly positive market development and there is a clear trend towards more sustainability. We have not felt any sign of a cooling market during this exhibition,” Jinghui Dai, General Manager (WCN), said.

Around 3600 exhibitors and 152.134 visitors gathered in an area of 350.000 square meters. The fair was almost exclusively attended by visitors from China due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
