MRL manufactures rubber, PU, and hard chrome rollers ranging from 3 millimeters to 10 meters in length. It has three units in Modinagar and one in Hyderabad, serving mainly the textiles, printing, packaging, steel, and plywood industries. It uses the latest technology of seamless rubber coating, which ensures the rubber roller’s quality and long durability, and runs at very high speeds.

Vipin Bhardwaj, senior marketing manager at MRL Printing Rolls, says, “MRL believes in producing the rolls having a long life and a faster speed. The capacity to produce a big-sized roll is 100-150 rolls a day, while 200-250 smaller size rolls can be produced daily. We have our in-house R&D centers, rubbers, and quality team, and we import and employ compounds from Korea. Today, we serve around 25-30% of the Indian roller market and plan to capture 50% in the near future. Plans to buy a CNC machine for manufacturing rollers are also in the pipeline.”

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
