Bobst stand brimming with visitors

Bobst, Mouvent and 12 Revo partners recently unveiled several new products for labels and flexible packaging. At Hall 3, Stand 3A58 and 3A59 from 24 to 27 September 2019, these innovations will further accelerate. Visitors will get an opportunity to witness four complete digitalized production processes across a digital native press, equipped with water-based inks, a new world premiere UV/Flexo hybrid printing machine and two DigiFlexo presses.

The new solutions set new standards helping converters and brand owners improve time-to-market, guarantee color consistency and food packaging safety. The recently announced Ink-on-Demand (IoD), Highly Automated Liquid (HAL) and DigiColorrevolutionary innovations will be demonstrated on the stand along with the fully automated DigiMountTM flexo plate mounting system. Visitors will be able to understand how to win the challenge of color consistency with the Extended Color Gamut (ECG) technologies across DigiFlexo and digital native printing processes.

Bobst will present Connected Services monitoring the performance of the entire production floor, reducing equipment downtime and repair costs. The Bobst M6 line, which changes the future of flexible packaging, will be the star of Hall 11, Stand 11A50 in the flexible packaging arena.

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
