The brightest minds and innovators from the world of plastics will be honoured at the 7th Plasticon Awards 2015 to be held on 5 February

The world of plastics is arriving in India for Plastindia 2015. Those who are making a difference in plastics across the globe will step under one roof, to meet, visit, browse and exchange ideas at Asia’s largest convention for plastics. Stands will abound and so will opportunities at this mega event. And on the same stage, the brightest minds and innovators from the world of plastics will be honoured at the 7th Plasticon Awards 2015 to be held on 5 February.

The awards have been instituted by the Plastindia Foundation to honour innovation and excellence in the world of plastics. Over the years, the foundation has recognized those who have made a mark in the plastics sector with their foresight, skill and performance. These awards encompass every aspect of the world of plastics, from research to academia, from significant contributors to the plastic industry to brand new eco-friendly initiatives ,from crowning the fastest growing organizations to recognizing the future of the plastic industry – students with potential and aptitude.

These awards are sponsored by legends and pioneers from the plastics fraternity. There is an eminent panel of stalwarts from this discipline handpicked to choose the winners. The jury too has been selected – it comprises well-known names of the plastics fraternity. This time, at the seventh edition, there are 25 categories. This includes three new categories for Indian participants and four for international ones. As of now, the process of picking shortlisted participants is still on and will continue until 30 December 2014.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
