Discussing the technicalities of the Brillo-800, the technical team at the stand said the machine is ideal for foiling without the use of dies, plates, molds for carton boxes, luxury packaging, personalized packaging, gift boxes, stationery, book covers, calendars, wedding cards, invitations, brochures, menu cards, commercial jobs, photo books, and high-end bespoke prints.

It covers a large variety of substrates, including paper, board, laminated/non-laminated variety of water-based coatings, and cartons. The thermal lamination machine was continuously on the go, doing the job, and taking out samples for visitors.

Sonal Sheth, director of Daya Printograph, said, “We received live positive appreciation from the visitors about the machine and its capabilities. Our last-minute decision to participate turned out to be an exciting experience. The turnout of visitors was more than expected.

Asked about the footfall, Sodhi said, “Visitors were very keen to visit the stall to understand things.”

The company sold three paper cutting (with Sai Engineering), two thermal lamination machines with foilers, one flute lamination servo machine, and one corrugation machine.

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.
