The conference on the first day of the exhibition on smarter, greener, and consumer-centric packaging had some insights and ideas from brands and veteran industry leaders. The conference had discussions over key issues such as raw material costs, technological gaps, infrastructure bottlenecks, and changing consumer demands that impact the packaging business.

A panel discussion with Kunal Doshi, head of Inbound Logistics and Packaging auto division, Mahindra Group, as moderator explored the concept of achieving profitability while maintaining sustainable practices in packaging. Apart from the strategies, the discussion touched upon the future-proof business models that prioritized both profitability and sustainability.

Excited to be a part of an exhibition that is more focused on corrugation after a long time in Pune, Venugopal Menon, zone business director in the Indian subcontinent, Bobst India said, “Happening in our city, the idea of participation in the exhibition allowed us to meet our customers at a single place and we hope to get some new as well from here.”

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!
