Hall N2 Stand B359

At All in Print China, Holostik will showcase its range of existing and new products as well as developments and security solutions

At All in Print China 2016, Holostik India will be present at Hall N2 Stand B359. One of the largest manufacturers of security holograms in the world in terms production volume, the company has more than 50% market share in India. Along with security label products, Holostik also has integrated IT solutions in its portfolio.

Holostik has developed various covert and overt features in holography and printing to protect products from counterfeiting. The company has also incorporated security features in its products like mirror strips, raster features, holographic scratch, security inks (forensic inks, color-changing and heat-sensitive inks).

Along with its products to check the hidden security features, Holostik also supplies devices such as raster films, microscope, UV lights, magnifying glass, conductivity testers and handheld terminals for reading barcodes. Taggant and Talking pen are some of the unique solutions from Holostik which will be displayed at All in Print China. Taggant is a secure system allowing instant authenticity inspection with a portable reader. Taggant is not a holographic feature, but a special covert coating inside the hologram which cannot be replicated or detected by any device except the unique taggant reader from Holostik. Talking pen is also an electro-optic sensing technology as well as a special coating and can be detected with a special pen which responds about authenticity with an audio note when kept on a hologram with the special coating inside and confirms that it is genuine. These coatings cannot be detected or replicated without special devices from Holostik.

Other products that will be displayed at the event are self-adhesive holographic scratch for faster applications over scratch cards; mirror strips with micro text; international food grade standards approved pouches with holography; shrink sleeves with full and partial spot holography; chameleongram, which is a color changing hologram with a combination of holography and printing; special holographic labels for the lubricant industry with unique creative designs and printings; and, induction sealing liners and wads with printing on inside and outside layers for more security, inventory management and attractive appearance.

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
