And there will be some top exhibitors from the corrugated and carton industry, such as Kongsberg, Valcon Melton, Baumer India, CGSASP, Dupont, BHS Corrugated India, Bobst, Creative Graphics, Emba, Robus India, Siegwerk, VeePee Graphics, Zhongke India, International Pavilion, and many more. Visitors coming to this show can expect to see technologically advanced equipment and technology, discover top brands and witness live demos to source end-to-end corrugated, paper packaging, and folding carton solutions under one roof. 

Here, at this event, Packaging South Asia team will be covering the show, and visitors can gather more information about the show at our Stand A7A in Hall 4. And, as you know that we have always been talking to both the visitors and the exhibitors about their presence at the show and their expectations, as this helps us in giving updates for the event or any new launch taking place in the packaging industry. Some of the exhibitors have shown interest in talking with us and gave us some information about their participation at the event.

While speaking with Zhongke India, we learned that the company will showcase its Automatic box forming machine ZK-5540C, Automatic High Precision Litho Laminator, Automatic diecutting Machine, and Automatic Window Patching Machine at the Indo-Corr Exhibition. The company has high expectations from the event as it believes that the industry is very keen to go for automation so that they might get a good response from the customers or the visitors. The top team authority from Zhongke India says, “In every exhibition, Zhongke India tries to display its new machine, and this time in IndiCorr Expo as there is a theme of corrugation, so we are majorly focussing on our litho laminator. Our litho laminator is quite different from other food laminators as its accuracy is so precise that you can easily stick one printed sheet to another.”

CGSASP – Hall 4, Stand A44

CGSASP confirms that it will bring its CITO Creasing Matrix and Rubbers, Policart Anvil Covers, Renova Brakes/chucks/roll pushers, Esterlam doctor blades, Leadedge flexo Apac – Pre stitched Carriers, Lead/Trail strips, Cbak, Sandon Anilox Rolls to the exhibition at its Stand A44. The event is significant for the participants from the corrugated industry as here, they get a chance to meet many customers. CGSASP commented that the previous IndiaCorr event was smaller due to Covid-19, but it still had a good response. And their expectations are high this time, and they expect more participation from the automatic plant corrugators segment of the industry.

Talking about CGSASP’s development in the last one year, Kunal Gandhi, director, CGSASP, says, “In this one year, we have done a joint venture with Leadedge Flexo from the UK. The joint venture is called Leadedge Flexo APAC. We have started manufacturing pre-stitched carriers in India. So, we are excited to promote this venture at the exhibition. The corrugated packaging and folding carton segment have become the fastest growing segment in the packaging industry, and it will continue growing for years to come.”

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!
