Toppan is aa global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions.

Toppan, a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, and Max Speciality Films Private Limited (MSFL), a Toppan Group company and one of India’s leading film manufacturers, will participate together for the first time in PackEx India 2022, which will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai from 14 to 16 September. 

Toppan and MSFL will present the Toppan Group’s barrier packaging business, including GL BARRIER, a market-leading transparent barrier film, to end users such as Indian packaging manufacturers and food producers.

PackEx India is an international packaging materials and technology exhibition held every other year in Mumbai and New Delhi. It showcases packaging materials and equipment for food, cosmetics, toiletries, pharmaceutical products, and industrial goods. In 2019, approximately 470 companies participated, and the number of visitors exceeded 10,000.

Leveraging GL Barrier, which enjoys the leading share of the global market for transparent vapor-deposited barrier films, Toppan has a broad-ranging packaging business with production locations in Japan, other parts of Asia, and North America. 

In May 2021 Toppan published its Medium Term Plan for the period April 2021 to March 2023, the key concept of which is digital & sustainable transformation. One of the priorities defined in the plan is accelerating the expansion of the global packaging business by catering to the demand for sustainable solutions and establishing networks facilitating local production for local consumption.

MSFL was founded in 1990 and had its headquarters and manufacturing base in Punjab, India. The company manufactures and sells BOPP films, predominantly for food packaging. After acquiring a 49% stake in MSFL in 2017, Toppan participated in the business as a minority shareholder. 

Toppan increased its stake to 90% in February this year, bringing MSFL on board as a consolidated subsidiary. Toppan is strengthening its business in the growing Indian market for BOPP films, which are anticipated to see demand as a more readily recyclable mono-material for packaging.

Increased environmental consciousness in recent years is driving worldwide demand for sustainable packaging materials. Fusing Toppan’s barrier film and packaging businesses with MSFL’s marketing capabilities and extensive knowledge of the film sector and Indian landscape, the two companies will showcase GL Barrier and packaging technologies as they look to expand the Toppan Group’s presence in one of the leading markets in the Asia/Oceania region.

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.
