Taghleef Industries has announced that it will be presenting new sustainable film solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2019. Nativia D813 is the first bio-based and biodegradable I-IML film in the market and complements Taghleef’s wide range of IML BoPP films. This polylactic acid (PLA) film is designed to run on reel-to-sheet offset printing machines, achieving good printing speed and better ink adhesion. These features make Nativia D813 a unique film that meets the growing demand for bioplastic-based containers that can be decorated with I-IML technology.

Another film that meets the principles of Circular Economy is the ultra-clear floatable Shape360 TDS. This low-density TD shrink sleeve label film minimizes the impact on PET recycling systems and reduces the weight of the label. The exceptional shrink curve guarantees up to 65% shrinkage, offering the freedom to fully decorate containers in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and the potential for 360° eye-catching label graphics.

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, Taghleef will also share programs that support sustainability and the circular economy, including the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) content and non-fossil raw material sources. Taghleef expects customers, brand owners, retailers and all stakeholders in the value chain to join in the discussion on the future of plastic packaging.

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!
