The samples and solutions such as the oneECG have the potential to be transformative for the packaging industry, Ludovico Frati, Customer Development director, Bobst Italy said.

Leading label machine manufacturers, suppliers, and others showcase their competence via state-of-the-art presses, innovative labels, etc. With so many suppliers under one roof, it is bound to attract the right kind of audience that we can partner with in the future and help drive the industry forward. It is definitely a center for collaborative innovation and ideation for future trends,” Frati said.

The previous edition in 2019 was very fruitful for it but a lot has changed over these years, accelerated further by the pandemic, Frati said. “It will be interesting to meet our customers in order to hear out their demands and desires as well as discuss global trends and future innovations.”

I would encourage people to visit our booth to know about the interesting developments Bobst has to offer. We have several new solutions to support our vision, all built on the four cornerstones of connectivity, digitalization, automation, and sustainability.”

Frati said the last 3-5 years have been very impactful as the labels sector and other industries have evolved massively. Flexible packaging overall has seen a boom.

The label printing market worldwide reached $36.98 billion (approximately Rs 3,03,021 crore) in 2017 and kept growing at 4.1% yearly to reach $45.22 billion (approximately Rs 3,70,541 crore) in 2022. The industry is going through many changes. For example, ‘sustainability’ moved from a good-to-have argument to an essential pillar in all business decisions. Various solutions were offered around it, such as the oneECG printing features on multiple installations of Bobst in-line narrow and mid-web presses that are present in five continents,” Frati said.

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.
