At this year’s Labelexpo India, Monotech had two stands – one displaying the various products of the companies that Monotech represents and the other showing Monotech’s own range of products. At the stand dedicated for its partners, Monotech displayed a 6-color Focus label press as well as a Labelmen. “Labelmen is a recent association for us; they are one of the market leaders in intermittent offset and CI letterpress segments,” says TP Jain, managing director of Monotech Systems.

At the event, Monotech launched three new solutions. “The first and foremost is our 4-color label press. In addition to that we have launched a high-speed industrial inkjet press, which can run at 300 m per minute and is targeted at the newspaper and packaging segments. Finally, we have also launched a monochrome plastic card printing solution. Going forward, we would be releasing a color version of the monochrome press,” says Jain. Monotech also displayed a new variant of its highly successful Jetsci VRI, which can print two colors with
security inks. In addition to that, the company displayed samples of its Scodix and Highcon. Jain informs that Scodix is now entering into the offset and packaging market.

We just completed the first installation of Focus label press in Mumbai and currently we are working on several projects for label presses. Labelmen is, of course, a recent launch and we are seeing a good response and interest for Labelmen,” he shares. “As far as our industrial inkjet solution is concerned, we are gaining strength in terms of increased installations. I am pretty sure that we will be able to have a good placement for this product range. In any case the future is inkjet, where we have very strong domain knowledge as far as technology is concerned and we are constantly working on new products.”

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.
