Monotech Systems will showcase its digital label printing solutions to its customers and other exhibitors at Labelexpo India 2022, Priyanka Rathi, deputy general manager, Marketing & Communication, Jetsci Global, has confirmed.

The manufacturer and solutions provider for the printing and packaging industry will have a live demonstration of its new Colornovo Hybrid, which is equipped with 7-color digital UV inkjet printing technology, and Tracesci, which is a track-and-trace solution.

It is also launching a new ColorAqua Hybrid, an economical high-resolution’ variable data printing solution with an online inspection system, during the show to be held from 10 to 13 November in Greater Noida. Monotech will be present in Hall 1, Stand C26.

“We find the Labelexpo a focused industry show with quality footfall. For us, participating in trade shows is never about just sales. We use trade shows or exhibitions as a platform to showcase the best of our capabilities and products, which are world-class. We run successful demos during the show so that our prospective clients can experience our machine capabilities firsthand and always get good responses and quality leads. Sales will always follow if you have the right product,” said Jimit Mittal, president of Jetsci Global.

Neeraj Thappa, vice-president, Sales, at Jetsci Global, remarked, “Our experience with Label Expo India goes way back and has always been fruitful. In the last Labelexpo, we received multiple orders for our digital label press, ‘Colornovo,’ and since our last participation in 2018, we have installed 20 presses (Colornovo/KolorSmart+) and 100+ other inkjet solutions globally.”

This year also, the company will show futuristic solutions that will help the converters and label industry to grow exponentially. “We would like to extend our invitation to all our print and package fraternity prospects to visit our stand,” Thappa said.

Tarun Sharma, general manager, Operations, at Jetsci Global, spoke on the company’s achievements in the last 3-4 years. “Introducing innovative and revolutionized solutions in the industry is our forte, and with a strong in-house R&D department, we keep on developing advanced solutions. At Labelexpo, all the machines on the floor will be of world-class quality with a focus on streamlining customer workflow, which will help their business to grow multifold.”

Mittal said the packaging and labeling market is consistently growing and even during the pandemic times, this segment sustained and supported the print industry.

“Our industry has experienced a change in the last 3-4 years – shrinking profit margins, increased media prices, and shorter run lengths with multiple SKUs. Today, brands are not interested in stock keeping, they want quick job turnarounds, VDP, personalization, and customization. This changing scenario is pushing more and more label printers and converters to adopt digital printing solutions. In another 4-5 years down the line, you may find most of the printers adapting to this agile, versatile and flexible technology. It is just the beginning, and we have just begun,” Mittal concluded.

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.
