KOCH Pac-Systeme GmbH has several prominent multinational clients in India. “Customers who seek high reliability, automation and value proposition opt for our solutions,” Umashankar informs. He further adds, “We can supply end-to-end solutions: from feeding system up to tertiary packing system. Customers are gradually opting for such end-to-end solutions as they get to deal with a single supplier, the communication becomes seamless and integration of various line components becomes convenient.”

KOCH is also aggressively working towards Industry 4.0 and according to Umashankar, Indian companies too are increasingly eager to know more about this. “Yes, there is a clear trend where we are seeing that Indian customers are enthusiastic to know about the benefits that Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 offer in the overall manufacturing process,” he concludes.

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.
