Fosber Asia, is a part of the Italy headquartered Fosber Group, a global supplier for the design, construction, and installation of machines and complete lines for producing corrugated board. Known for delivering the world’s best machinery for corrugated packaging, the company recently participated in the IndiaCorr Expo in Greater Noida in the Delhi NCR. This was the company’s second time participation at this exhibition. 

In its second time participation at the IndiaCorr Expo, Fosber gave us a few details of its newly developed Elines corrugating machine, produced after market research by its team in the country which shows that the local demand was for lower speed machines than are generally sold globally. Deepak Singh, senior manager of Fosber Asia, spoke about the exhibition “Of course, Covid-19 has affected many companies, but the demand has grown in the corrugated industry. As compared to Corr Expo 2019, we have received more response from interested people this time. The reason is that in 2019, the visitors we met were from different industries, not particularly from the packaging industry. So, for us, it’s a great event and pleasure to be here at IndiaCorr Expo in India.”

Detailing of different corrugated lines from Fosber Asia

The company’s corrugated lines vary in their production speeds – the ELines run at 180 meters a minute; the CLines  at 250 to 320 meters a minute; the ProLines which run at 270 to 320 meters a minute; and, the  SLines at 370 to 420 meters a minute.

Singh explained, “In 2019 IndiaCorr Expo, the first time, we came to India, we were having the products that were over specified according to the Indian market, and the local corrugated industry was focused on comparatively lower volumes, rather than the machines we used to produce which were meant for high volumes.

Fosber’s recently developed ELines have been specifically designed to serve a market of 3,500 tonnes or 4,000 metric tons which is a common requirement from Indian industry. We are more ready to launch this new product to the Indian market, and this product is completely made by Fosber.”

He concluded the conversation by highlighting the company’s effort and achievements during the pandemic, “The pandemic has affected the people as it took so many lives, however looking towards the packaging industry, it has been growing. Even during the Covid time, Fosber utilized its time in the research and development of new products. We also performed more installations in the previous two years in comparison to past years. During this period, we also enriched our knowledge on industry 4.0, which means artificial intelligence-enabled machines.”

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!
