Packaging is no longer confined merely to the container but has become a sum total of style, quality, health and other technical and scientific developments. Established in 2001, Galaxy Packteck has grown to become one of the top players in the pouch-making machinery market. Galaxy manufactures, exports and supplies automatic, high-speed pouch-making machines to leading customers in India and overseas.

The company has a wide portfolio of products for the pouch converters and manufacturers, such as 3-side sealing machine, stand-up zipper, center-sealing zipper and woven fabric machines. Galaxy’s spout inserting machine, which the company claims is the first-of-its-kind manufactured in India, was displayed at the previous edition of PLASTINDIA, where it received an overwhelming response. All of Galaxy’s shape cutting and pouch making machines are servo driven.

Going by the buzz it has created in the Indian and overseas market over the past two years, Galaxy decided to again show the same machine at this year’s PLASTINDIA. This time, the company is looking to target overseas clients to cement its place in exports.

Galaxy’s GSF 12 high-speed auto spout inserting machine has a spout insertion capacity of 50 pouches a minute. The machine can manufacture pouch sizes ranging from 100 x 150 x 120 mm to 240 x 350 x 120 mm (width, length and thickness). Galaxy also manufactures customized machines for special formats and needs. The company will also show a 3-side pouch sealing machine capable of running at 400 pouches a minute.

“Our main motive is to cut the imports this time around. Usually, Indian machines are criticized for heavy power consumption and lower output rates, and we would like to contradict that perception with our machines. I think it’s high time that people realize that Indian machines are quite at par with those being offered mostly by our EuropeanPlastIndia logo 1 counterparts,” says Brijesh Kumar, senior manager – Accounts of Galaxy Packteck. “PLASTINDIA as a bi-annual event has been pivotal for us. Ten years ago, we lacked exposure. In 2009, we decided to participate in PLASTINDIA for the first time and the show turned out to be so fruitful that we couldn’t resist going back to all the successive editions of the event.”

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!
