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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
