Visitors to Labelexpo India can see HB Fuller’s latest adhesive technologies, and how it applies optimally to different applications, including adhesives for book binding and graphic arts. HB Fuller’s latest investment in adhesive manufacturing in India demonstrates its commitment to bringing global adhesive innovation within the reach of local converters in the tape, label and graphics market.

Its extensive pressure-sensitive adhesive line-up contains hot melt, solventbased and water-based formulations. Its capabilities include the creation of unique compounded adhesives using in-house polymerisation that deliver enhanced performance for specific applications. For example, Swiftmelt 1911 and Lunamelt HL 2838 products are successfully delivering the required strong bond to ensure packages remain secure during shipment. Plus, its range of Swiftcol solvent-based acrylic and synthetic or natural rubber adhesives are renowned for their strong performance across a variety of applications, such as protective films and high-performance double-sided tapes.

The global adhesives provider has set up dedicated production facilities and R&D teams in the country, along with knowledgeable technical and sales advisers, to ensure that local customers can imagine, create and design solutions that touch people’s lives in simple yet profound ways.

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.
