Uflex participated in the recently concluded PackPlus South where it showcased solutions from its holography and engineering businesses. PackPlus South was held in Hyderabad from 9 to 12 March 2018.

“At the holography business, the focus is to offer customers top-of-the-line impregnable anti-counterfeiting and brand enhancement solutions. In fact, Uflex is one of the loudest voices in the global fight against counterfeiting and has been exhibiting its solutions at various national and international platforms. We are leading this fight by thinking much ahead of the nefarious counterfeiters and designing technologically superior brand protection solutions in the best interest of our global clientele. This is exactly what we are showcasing at PackPlus South as well,” says CG Ramesh, general manager (marketing), Uflex holography business.

At PackPlus, Uflex promoted registered lens (Fresnel & Sterling) design. This special technology has been deployed by Uflex in technical collaboration with the US-based company WaveFront. This specialty film is used by FMCG and pharma companies for imparting anti-counterfeiting and brand protection features to their packaging. The lens film has been showing extremely encouraging demand both in India and overseas.

Another product from the holography business promoted at the expo was thermal holographic film for lamination. Uflex is the only company in India to make this film. “The thermal holographic films are meant mainly for brand enhancement and decoration,” says Ramesh.

In the engineering business, Uflex gave a live demonstration of the preformed pouch pick fill & seal machine. This machine can be used to pack liquids, gels and granular products among others.

Talking about the Telangana market, Mukesh Mohan Agarwal, general manager (sales & marketing), engineering business of Uflex said that the region has very high growth potential.

“We expect our business to enhance significantly this year and we have introduced several new models of packaging machines in the south,” he added.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
