Apart from showcasing a gamut of solutions and technologies at Printpack 2019, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India is using the platform to further enhance its brand value among Indian customers.

“This year what we are looking at is to enhance the value of Konica Minolta brand.

In terms of products, the company is showing a whole host of presses at its Printpack stall. It is demonstrating the MGI Jetvarnish 3DS with iFOIL as well as samples of work done by its customers using the MGI technology. At the stall samples of work done by Bahubal Digiglam, Printology Xperts, Dulari and PSG are on display. Also on display are samples of work done on AccurioLabel 190 press.

The company is also showcasing the AccurioPress C3070, AccurioPress C83hc, AccurioPress C6100 and bizhub PRO 1100.

Malhotra stated that Konica Minolta’s share in the black and white printing segment has increased with sales of monochrome printers in 2018-2019 is expected to be double the number seen in 2017-2018. “We have been able to sell our mono presses to lot of copy shop owners and publishers,” he says.

Finally talking about expectation from Printpack, he says that the company expects to close a good number of deals at the show. “Like every time, we expect good orders at Printpack 2019 edition as well,” he concludes.

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!
