Dai Nippon Printing (DNP), a Malaysia-based company, exhibited its wide range of resin ribbons, 300 (V300) for the first time at LabelExpo India 2022 show in Greater Noida.

It operates 58 plants in Japan and overseas, and its activities include commercial printing, packaging, decorative material, electronics, business forms, and information media supply.

Expanding printing technology has been a fundamental DNP policy since the 1950s, specifically in the photofinishing markets, the company has been the inventor of dye sublimation printing technology and is one of the largest manufacturers of dye sublimation thermal transfer media.

Expressing their excitement in attending the exhibition for the first time, Natsuki Yoshida, senior sales manager, DNP said, “Initially, we were nervous, but that changed quite soon as the footfall began. The audience is great, many of our partners to whom we supply are here. We got to meet them face to face for the first time.”

Today’s innovation is tomorrow’s basic,” said Joel Lau, senior sales manager, DNP. ”Our company supplies ribbons and coatings to numerous industries globally. Countries such as Thailand, the USA, and many European nations are our customers but our focus is on the South Asian market. We strive to keep our innovations up-to-date because the market is very dynamic as the needs keep changing. And when that happens, we want to be their first choice with our solutions,” he adds.

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!
