Authentication Solution Providers’ Association (ASPA) is the world’s first and only self-regulated non-profit organization that represents the entire authentication solutions industry globally. The organization recently announced the dates for leadership summit i.e.; 15-16 March 2018 at Hotel Taj Mahal , New Delhi.

On the occasion, U.K. Gupta, president of ASPA said, “At a time, when counterfeiting costs the global economy $1.77 trillion and the Indian economy Rs. 324 billion every year it has become necessary for us to fight this issue. The new consumer protection bill passed by the Government of India is the very big initiative and positive step towards consumer empowerment in our country. We are enthusiastic with the response and willingness from Government and industry in the fight against the fakes. After a successful first edition, we are pleased to announce the 2nd Authentication Forum 2018. It is part of our 20-year celebration. We are also working on developing a Counterfeit News Repository (CNR). Further, this year, we will expand our Make Sure India and Brand Awareness Campaign across the nation which will be an extension to our 20-year celebration.”

Luv D Shriram, general secretary of ASPA, said “The 20 year celebration marks our commitments and presence in the industry. It also make us one of the world’s oldest and leading associations in anti-counterfeiting industry. Today, our members companies are protecting more than 15000 brands across the globe and the 20th anniversary celebration belongs to the Authentication Industry’s commitment towards its ethics, innovation and commitment towards providing new generation anti-counterfeiting solutions which are important for the government, industry, brand owners and consumers in their fight against fakes.”

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.
