At PackPlus, Packaging South Asia is also participating and will be exhibiting its magazines and supplements at Stand M7. Packaging South Asia is always concerned for its readers and keeps them updated with whatever is happening around the packaging industry. This time also, we are keen to know who the exhibitors are, what they have on display, and their excitement level for the event. So, we tried to connect with some of the exhibitors like Acumen Packaging, Mahisa, Valco Melton, and Natraj Industries.

While speaking with Mahisa about their display and the expectations, we learned about their innovations and vision for the industry. The company said, “At the exhibition, we are displaying our products EcoPlus, EcoStar, SpeedPack,  SmartPlot with their live demos. We will be present at Stall A225 at PackPlus. We have been participating at PackPlus for many years, and it has always been a positive experience. This year we hope for the same as this is one of the first major exhibitions in the post Covid period. We hope to connect with new potential clients. And, with sustainability gaining importance, we see that the packaging industry is up for a revolution and will see drastic changes. The packaging industry will play a major role in the sustainability movement.”

Valco Melton India shared with Packaging South Asia, “We are displaying our innovative and customer-friendly products with cutting edge technology at the Stand A2. We are excited to meet the industry, our customers, and prospects, we are displaying eco stitch technology and auto feeder hot melt system. We are so excited to show our new technology to the customers and make sure they take the advantage of our new technology and save the cost of adhesives. Our booth is strategically positioned for our customers to see our products on display (as the saying goes – ‘seeing is believing’). We are excited to meet them.

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.
