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.

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!
