Anilox rolls from Apex International

Apex International, a global provider of anilox and embossing technologies, will participate at Pamex 2024, from 6 to 9 February at Bombay Exhibition Center, Goregaon, Mumbai. The team of Apex International will be present at the label segment of the exhibition in Hall 2, stand no I22 – showcasing its patented GTT anilox technology along with conventional screens.

GTT is an open channel geometry, allowing the ink to flow calmly and precisely from the anilox onto the printing plate, releasing the right amount of ink. The manufacturing process of GTT enables the production of smooth, consistent, and precise channel walls over the surface, delivering enhanced printability and repeatability from anilox to anilox, job after job, and year after year.

Targeting the offset, coating, and label customers at the exhibition, a spokesperson of Apex said, “We are expecting to get good footfall for offset, coating customers. With a new segment of labels added last year, we hope to see a large footfall from the label industry as well. We hope it to be a great show with good prospects boosting our sales.”

The team believes the market is growing at a good rate after the pandemic. “This positive impact on the growth rate has created space for new customers to enter the market and the existing ones are adding new capacities. This will reflect in the exhibition’s success as well. Domestic manufacturers are contributing to the rise in business.”

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 growing 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.
