Make in India’ was a strong theme for Monotech Systems, which demonstrated multiple solutions for the label industry at the Labelexpo India 2022 show held in Greater Noida from 10-13 November. 

“Make in India for the world was the underlying theme at our stand. We have made major progress towards that goal and that was seen at this year’s Labelexpo India. Monotech now has a complete range of solutions for label printing, embellishment, and variable data printing,” TP Jain, owner of Monotech Systems, told Packaging South Asia during the show. 

The company showcased a number of printing and finishing machines, including its new Colornovo Hybrid, which is equipped with seven-color digital UV inkjet printing technology, and Tracesci, which is a track-and-trace solution. It also launched the ColorAqua Hybrid, an economical high-resolution’ variable data printing solution with an online inspection system. The Delhi-headquartered Wonderpac booked a ColorAqua Hybrid on the first day of the expo. 

Growth in digital technology 

Jain said the adoption of digital technology in India has been increasing rapidly in the recent past after a slow start. “Digital is now a well-established technology, not only in the label converting industry but in the Indian packaging industry overall. Digital is everywhere at Labelexpo India 2022. During the last event in 2018, digital was just a buzzword. This time it is a reality. You can see so many digital printing solution providers at the show. The benefits of digital technology are now widely appreciated and the pace of adoption is accelerating,” Jain said. 

The proliferation of start-ups and home-grown enterprises has spurred the demand for short-run labeling jobs, Jain said. “The labeling requirements of these new-age brands can be easily and economically met with digital technology,” he added. 

A great expo for Monotech 

The event, which happened after a gap of four years, was excellent for Monotech. “This year’s Labelexpo has been very successful for us. We were able to book a good number of orders. Our team met existing and potential customers. It was great being at the expo this year,” Jain concluded. 

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.
