Business-ready for another show & tell

PackPlus, 25-28 July Pragati Maidan


The Indian packaging industry constitutes about 4% of the global market. The per capita packaging consumption in India is quite low at 8.7 kg compared to countries like Germany and Taiwan where it is 42 kg and 19 kg, respectively. As the requirement for packaging grows across sectors with traditional businesses preferring to package products, and the retail and eCommerce growing rapidly, the sector is also growing at a robust pace. The industry presents potential growth opportunities for new entrepreneurs, and small and medium enterprises. Amid the sanguine scenario, PackPlus provides a business and networking platform for the presentation and promotion of innovative technologies.

PackPlus, with more than 300 exhibitors already signed up for the July event, will feature companies like Any Graphics (P) Ltd., Bericap India, Bizerba India, Brothers Pharmamach (India), Clearpack Automation, Hubergroup India, Intergraphic Sales & Services, Ishida India, Jay Instruments & Systems, Modtech Machines, Nichrome India, Parakh Agro Industries, S.S.P Packaging Industries, and Uflex Limited – Engineering Division . The show will bring together various other manufacturers and providers of packaging machines, materials & equipment coding & marking solutions; flexo, gravure, offset & screen printing presses; label printing equipment; corrugated box making machinery; paper, film, foil, inks & other consumables; food production & processing equipment; barcodes and RFID; rigid & flexible packaging; flexible intermediate container; woven, sacks & other bulk packaging solutions; end-of- line packaging solutions; supply chain, logistics and material handling.

Another appealing attraction of the year will be PackSol 2018, which will run concurrently in a dedicated pavilion at PackPlus. PackSol will give an opportunity to the printers, converters and manufacturers of finished packaging products to showcase their innovations and packaging formats in four separate halls at the exhibition.

Adding more value to the show will be the annual International Packaging Conclave 2018, which will be held concurrently on 27 July. The conclave will focus on the critical need for safe food packaging for a better tomorrow. The knowledge-sharing and networking platform will feature interactive panel discussions on issues pertaining to the industry.

The visitor registration for the event is in full swing and the promotional campaigns are all lined up for another success story.

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.
