Avery Dennison at Labelexpo Europe 2019

Launching sustainable and intelligent label solutions

Avery Dennison to launch sustainable materials and intelligent labels at Labelexpo Europe 2019

Avery Dennison is all set to make its biggest trade show appearance at the Labelexpo Europe event to celebrate the 40th year of Labelexpo. Under the theme ‘Making a Material Difference’, the Avery Dennison team of experts will demonstrate a range of newly launched and significant innovations across four key areas of focus, including sustainable materials and intelligent labels.

The new product innovations to be displayed at the company’s stand A31 in Hall 5 include rPE, the industry’s first facestock made from recycled polyethylene launched in Europe in May. It will also showcase RPET, a liner with more than 30% recycled PET bottle content, shortlisted for this year’s Label Industry Global Awards 2019, Environmental and Sustainability Award. In addition, visitors will see a new extension of the Avery Dennison CleanFlake portfolio, an innovation that enables closed-loop PET recycling and which won this year’s FINAT, the recycling and sustainability award. Avery Dennison will release more information on other new innovations to be launched at the show in near future.

Visitors to the Avery Dennison stand will get to see the materials Avery Dennison creates, the industries they serve, and the people with whom they collaborate. In addition to highlighting a range of material solutions, there will also be a key focus on collaboration, with a hospitality area to meet, listen and collaborate with show attendees, as well as a dedicated seminar space where Avery Dennison and partners will host think tank sessions on key industry topics, including ‘Sustainability: designing labels for recyclability’, ‘Intelligent Labels: getting started with RFID and learn about the future of connected products’, ‘Neuromarketing insights: what makes a wine label say “buy me”?’, and ‘Adhesives enabling functionality, shelf appeal or sustainability.’

Jeroen Diderich, vice president and general manager of Avery Dennison Label and Graphics Materials, Europe said, “I am very excited about Labelexpo 2019, as it gives us a great opportunity to launch new and exciting products to our customers, to gain their direct feedback, and to listen and collaborate with other industry players. In fact, we have new technologies and innovations that we are launching this year that were inspired by conversations that we have had at previous shows!”

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!
