K 2022
K 2022,‘Plastics shape the future’, focuses on how crucial plastics are for a sustainable future. 

A highlight of this year’s K 2022 is a special show, ‘Plastics shape the future’, which focuses on how crucial plastics are for a sustainable future. 

The sessions will show the fascinating developments that are already taking place today and that visions for tomorrow are just on their way to implementation. 

Over seven focus days, there will be discussions by a panel of experts on innovative technologies, keynote speeches, entertaining demonstrations of flagship projects, and experimental shows. 

The special show addresses economic, ecological, and socio-political aspects while presenting solutions for problematic issues that the plastics industry has to deal with.

The show is a project of the German plastics industry led by PlasticsEurope Deutschland and Messe Düsseldorf, the organizers of K. 

The special show promises insights and outlooks for exhibitors and trade visitors at K 2022, as well as for the media and the interested public.

The trade fair for plastics and rubber will be held at Düsseldorf in Germany, from 19 to 26 October 2022 and is open daily on these days.  

K was first organized by Messe Düsseldorf in 1952 and is held every three years. The last K in 2019 recorded 3,330 exhibitors from 63 countries and 224,116 trade visitors.

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.
