Coesia, a group of 21 companies specializing in industrial and packaging solutions, participated in Achema 2022 with great satisfaction, having elicited new business opportunities and enjoyed opportunities for positive comparison. 

Achieving the aims of experiencing a moment of sharing and of offering a detailed overview of all Coesia solutions on display, the stand hosted visitors from over 50 countries around the world, thanks to the presence of a team of experts and live demos.

The trade show provided the company with five intense days of showing the international public the group’s latest innovations that were designed to meet the sector’s most pressing needs. 

Among them were advanced packaging machines, printing solutions, and industrial automation, all of which aim to improve production efficiency and simplify operations, as well as reduce the ecological footprint of packaging for the pharmaceutical sector.

Six group companies – FlexLink, GF, Hapa, MGS, Norden, and Volpak – presented their latest innovations and services for customers who face new market challenges, such as the growing digitalization of operations and the implementation of new business models increasingly focused on sustainable policies.

The Group is focusing more and more on digital tools and services – fundamental pillars of its business strategy – to optimize the efficiency of machines, lines, and entire factories and provide complete support to customers.

This heightened focus is proved by Coesia Digital’s latest innovations, which were presented and demonstrated during the event – OptiMate, Coesia’s new smart HMI, available on the solutions of Hapa, Enflex, Volpak, and PerforMate, Coesia’s IIoT platform for monitoring machines in real-time.

A special area of the stand – the Coesia Shelf of Sustainable Solutions – was dedicated exclusively to the management of sustainable materials and eco-sustainable packaging offered by Coesia companies in the pharmaceutical sector.

After the success of this edition of Achema, Coesia will travel to America for the next exhibition, the long-awaited edition of Pack-Expo 2022 in Chicago. The focus: machinery and products designed to increase the reliability and efficiency of production processes in the three areas of food and beverage, pharma and personal care, and cross-Industry automation. In addition, the re-commerce project for companies seeking automatic solutions for online order management will be launched for the occasion.

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!
