Started in 1994, Mumbai-based Condot Systems provides products and solutions for marking and batch coding, variable data printing, transport systems and vision systems. The company meets the demands of printing, packaging, pharmaceuticals, dairy and FMCG segments. At PackPlus 2016, held in July 2016 in Delhi, the company showcased products from the US-based company Matthews Marking Systems following a collaboration with the latter to represent its products in India. “Matthews Marking Systems is a 125-year-old company and is the leader in coding, marking and inkjet applications in the US,” says Vijay
Kamat, GM marketing of Condot Systems. At PackPlus, Condot displayed dropon-demand valve inkjet printers and high-resolution piezo electric printers from Mathews apart from various track-and-trace systems.

“We manufacture as well as represent foreign companies in India. Based on customer requirements, we develop different products – we are basically system integrators in the inkjet business,” says Kamat. “The market is competitive but I believe there is a huge potential for each company to grow. There is a transition happening from analog to digital and the manpower is becoming a huge issue. So people are investing in digital technologies.” According to Kamat, the industry is growing at 15% YoY. “Our growth is more than the industry growth in the last three to four years which is 25%. I believe that there is a role for everybody to play in the market.”

Speaking about his experience at PackPlus, Kamat says, “This is our first time at PackPlus and we have already achieved our investment on the second day. Also the visitor response and footfall is as per our expectation. Since we are predominantly in the printing, packaging and the pharma markets, PackPlus is the right platform for us. So we are planning to participate at this event every year.”

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.
