Komori India, a subsidiary of Komori Corporation Japan, has secured deals for 17 sheetfed printing presses during the first three days of Pamex 2024 in Mumbai, the company announced.

Jitender Rohilla, general manager of sales at Komori India, said Pamex 2024 has proven to be a fantastic show for the company. Seven machines were sold on the first day, five on the second day, and an additional five machines on the third day, he said. 

The company is optimistic of surpassing the previous year’s record of booking 20 printing presses during Pamex 2023.

The deals are not limited to a single segment, as packaging convertors and printers from various sectors, including commercial printing, books printing, and others, have adopted Komori printing presses to meet their diverse requirements, the company said.

The multiple deals include nine printing presses from the Lithrone G series, predominantly chosen by packaging convertors. Additionally, seven machines from the four-color Enthrone 29-inch presses series and one machine from the LP series are included in this lineup, the company said.

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.
