The rise in population and urbanization has led to higher penetration of plastics in various industries, and to tap this massive potential K 2019 plays a vital role by providing a common platform for exhibitors and visitors from the entire value chain of the plastics industry.

This year at the show, ALOK Masterbatches will look forward to interacting with captains of the plastics industry, international buyers & vendors, and media journalists. ALOK has one of the largest portfolios of masterbatches in the industry with more than 5000 masterbatches, including a wide range of filler, color, and black masterbatch solutions. While the company will be exhibiting its entire range of commodity masterbatches, it will lay special emphasis on its newly developed color masterbatch solutions for bio-polymers and anti-microbial solutions developed in partnership with Microban, a leading company for antimicrobial technology and odor control solutions for developing antimicrobial solutions in the Indian market. ALOK will also announce a strategic partnership with Microban.

According to the company, K provides the best platform to network, ideate and showcase cutting-edge solutions developed at ATIC. ALOK believes that the show will provide a brilliant opportunity to reach out to and establish strong business relationships with the stalwarts of the plastics industry.

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!
