Garware Polyester Ltd. participated in Labelexpo India 2018 with a new product offering – shrink labels. Shrink labels are usually used to wrap an entire label bottle, from top to bottom. With its new product, the company intends to increase its visibility in the labels segment. This is the third time the company is participating in Labelexpo India and says that with every edition, the show has been improving and attracting customers from wider areas.

“We have received good response at the exhibition. We never expected people to come in such huge numbers at our stand. We also generated some good queries. By the look of it, this show seems to have graduated to a whole new level and we will not hesitate to come back to the show again in the next edition,” says Jayesh Bharuka, manager at Garware Polyester Ltd.

During the show, the company displayed its flagship product, a high-shrink label with 70% shrinkage capacity wrap-around label which has the ability to replace small wrap-around labels to cover the entire bottle. This label helps in better branding of the product as the print-able area is increased.

“The label industry is doing quite well. It is growing by around 10-12% every year. With more customers shifting from traditional labels to high shrink labels, I think we could very well manage to sell the product to the masses. Also, the concept of shrink labels has been a huge hit in the overseas market. Our company exports 60-70% of its products to other countries while the local production and distribution stands at 30-40%. This is another factor which would help sell the product better in the market,” Bharuka concludes.

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 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.
