After wrapping up a successful K-Show in Germany and LabelExpo India in Greater Noida last year, Ahmedabad-based Acme Rolltech is gearing up for a great PlastIndia 2023.

At the upcoming PlastIndia, Acme Rolltech will showcase its made-in-India anilox rolls for stack flexo presses along with anilox sleeves for high-end CI flexo presses such as W&H, Bobst, Uteco, Comexi, and KYMC, Sandeep Sharma, director of Acme Rolltech told Packaging South Asia. The company will also showcase its cleaning solutions at the PlastIndia booth.

Sharma said Acme Rolltech will talk about its latest engraving technology, ACE – Advance Channel Engravings, during the show. This technology features new engraving patterns that help packaging and label printers resolve issues such as ink spitting, bottling, etc. The technology also helps improve print quality and makes it easier to clean aniloxes.

PlastIndia: A very important show

From Acme Rolltech’s point of view, PlastIndia is a very important platform where every stakeholder from the packaging industry comes to exchange new ideas and showcase new innovations.

“PlastIndia is one of the biggest exhibitions in India for the packaging industry and is happening after a gap of almost four years. We are excited about the event as we are catering to almost all OEMs and customers who are related to this industry in India and who use flexo printing techniques,” Sharma said.

PlastIndia 2023 is important for the company as the expo falls during a phase when Acme Rolltech is reporting strong growth and is looking to expand aggressively its market share in India and beyond. The year 2022 was phenomenal for Acme Rolltech as it doubled its production capacity and is operating 24×7.

“We achieved an exceptional growth of 48% in 2022. We are growing at a rapid pace with the support of our customers within India and around the globe. We are exporting to more than 25 countries. Our target is to make it to 50 countries by the end of 2023. We are attending Label Expo Bangkok, which is happening immediately after this event, from 9 to 11 February. We are increasing our foothold in the Asean market as well,” Sharma concluded.

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 grown 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!
