123

To show once again how to ‘make it happen’ in the packaging printing industry, Bobst has organized an industry and networking open house event on 27th and 28th February 2018 in the Competence Center of the Bobst Bielefeld factory in Germany – the BOBST Center of Excellence for web-fed CI flexo technology. The event will focus on the 7-color extended color gamut (ECG) process, and will première Bobst’s new 20SEVEN CI flexo press.

The technical developments of the 20SEVEN have been targeted to maximizing process consistency and are specifically suited for the ECG process. The printing demonstrations will highlight the 20SEVEN’s performance in handling 7-color ECG jobs, while the many aspects of the extended color gamut process will be examined from different perspectives by brand owners and converters who, along with other process specialists, will also animate the panel discussion, in which visitors are invited to participate and address many topics of interest. Further, the event will provide ample opportunities during the breaks and following the formal program, for networking, informal talks and to share experiences amongst all event participants.

The wide range of eServices available for trouble-shooting, for monitoring production and for boosting productivity that makes Bobst equipment deliver high levels of performance at all times, will take place in Bobst Bielefeld’s brand new Training Center, which has been recently established for educational and R&D purposes. On both days, the program will run from 10.30 a.m. to at 4.30 p.m.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
