Arden Software is showcasing a number of solutions at the 15the Printpack with the highlight being its flagship Impact CAD software which is for packaging design, 3D simulation, and die making. It is also talking about its step and repeat software and the packaging workflow management tool.

“Our packaging workflow management tool is web-based and helps connect all stakeholders in the packaging chain including internal stakeholders and external vendors. They can log into the portal and know at what stage the job is. It also has content approval feature and can be integrated with the SAP and MIS environment,” says Manish Bhaskar, managing director, Asia, and Africa, Arden Software.

Bhaskar said that the business in 2022 has seen robust recovery and the full year should be as good as 2019. “Printpack should help with the recovery further,” he says.

Arden is also expanding its product development team in India and shifted its office from Delhi NCR to Hyderabad. The development center at Hyderabad will be made the main center for the company in the coming future.

“We have two development centers, one in the UK and one in India. We are working on making the Indian center as our main one. There are six developers based in Hyderabad and by the end of this year, we plan to have 15. We are also expanding our sales and technical teams as well,” Bhaskar says.  

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.
