The recently concluded Labelexpo Americas 2018 showcased live demonstrations of new digital and conventional printing presses, high tech label and packaging materials, prepress and platemaking technology, cutters, rollers, inks and coatings, etc. Printers/converters of labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons, brand owners, label and packaging designers, and industry suppliers turned up in huge numbers to attend the show this year.

Spread across 5 halls, 12 conference sessions, 3 label academy classes, TLMI eco village and automation arena, the show was a grand success. There were many successful product launches during the show, like digital label press by Buskro, in-laser anilox cleaning technology by Flexo Wash, Alloy and Arrow’s new digital printer, Labelmaster finishing technology by SEI Laser, new label technologies from Bostik, new labelstock technology from Transcoat, and much more.

Among other participating companies, Labelexpo Americas 2018 was particularly special for MPS SYSTEMS, a flexo and offset press solution provider for label and flexible packaging printers. MPS SYSTEMS sold four hybrid EF SYMJET presses, the MPS hybrid solution developed in cooperation with Domino, and EF multi-substrate flexo press. Tim Fox, president of MPS Systems North America, said that the sale was way more than he expected from Labelexpo Americas 2018. He said that the sale of four EF SYMJET hybrid presses at the show proved the industry’s eagerness to adopt this technology as the future, combining the best of both worlds in digital and flexo label printing.

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.
