ipap printing

Companies interested in developing one of the most promising markets in the Near East or in further expanding their position there can apply for participation in ‘IPAP Printing & Packaging Expo – powered by drupa’ with immediate effect. The Iranian trade fair will be held from 4 to 7 October 2018 and targets suppliers of printing technology across the entire value chain from prepress/print, premedia/multichannel and postpress through converting and packaging to materials, equipment, services and infrastructure – specifically tailored to customer needs in the Near and Middle East.

Held in parallel with IPAP for the second time will be pacprocess Tehran, which as part of the interpack alliance addresses the packaging sector and related process industries. The premiere of the trade fair combination, organized by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with Barsaz Rooydad Pars Company (BRP), clearly exceeded the expectations of the over 160 exhibitors and some 7,500 trade visitors and produced numerous concluded deals. The year 2018 will see the two trade fairs held again at Iran’s most state-of-the-art exhibition centre, Shahr-e-Aftab (Exhibiran International).

The print and packaging sector, including the related process industries, is considered key industries in Iran after the international sanctions were eased in 2016. They lay the foundation for the competitiveness of a wide variety of products and are closely associated with rising export revenues of Iranian companies.

With more than 32,000 offset print shops, 50,000 digital printing service providers and approximately 65,000 further upstream suppliers to the print industry, the Iranian market holds attractive potential for further business development. In this emerging region with some 80 million inhabitants, where nearly all sectors of the economy experience backlog demand, the print industry is subject to a particularly high pressure to invest. The relatively young, consumption-prone population increasingly calls for high-quality solutions in print technologies and applications, in packaging material and finishing. To this end manufacturers need the most modern machines and services. Here the areas of packaging and offset printing presses as well as developments in digital printing applications are of much importance since these machines and systems must be imported, as a rule.

Forming part of drupa’s global Print Technologies Portfolio, IPAP complies with all the drupa quality standards. Accordingly, the focal drupa themes offering high potential such as forward-looking cross-cutting technologies and industrial and functional printing applications, will be progressively implemented at IPAP Tehran. As early as 2017, the exhibiting companies already benefited from the global network as well as market expertise of the world’s No. 1 trade fair drupa, established in 1951.

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
