Representatives of Maharashtra Mudran Parishad (MMP)

The state-level apex body representing printers for the past 60 years, the Maharashtra Mudran Parishad (MMP) plays a crucial role in the promotion of the printing and packaging industry. The parishad will be jointly organizing the networking meeting for all its members across Maharashtra at the upcoming exhibitions – PackVision Expo, CorrVision Expo, and Folding Carton Show, a complete representation of the packaging and printing industry.

Taking place in Pune on 13, 14, and 15 June 2024 at the Autocluster Exhibition Centre in the Chinchwad MIDC region of Pune, the exhibitions will display printing and packaging machines, raw materials, ancillary equipment, and allied solutions apt for offset, digital, flexo printers and users of packaging solutions.

Balasaheb Ambedkar, president of MMP said, “We are delighted to partner with Future Market Events for upcoming shows and will be organizing our networking meet during the event. We expect over 300 delegates from across Maharashtra to join the networking meeting in Pune to discuss the emerging opportunity for the printing and packaging industry.”

Siddharth Narain, co-founder, and director of Future Market Events said, “We are thankful to MMP for their trust and for supporting us to reach the roots of Maharashtra for the upcoming edition of PackVision Expo, CorrVision Expo and Folding Carton Show. As the region’s first-ever complete packaging show, the event has gained huge momentum and will welcome industry stakeholders from the entire Maharashtra, Gujarat and from across India.”

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!
