Companies catering to the liquid packaging are part of the Drink Technology India. Some of the companies that are part of Drink Technology India include Sidel, Chemco and Manjushree, among others.

“The fact that all these trade fairs are taking place under one roof bodes well for both visitors and exhibitors. The Indian packaging industry is growing rapidly, and these platforms offer great opportunity to the industry,” NC Saha, director, Indian Institute of Packaging said during the inauguration function.

“I am very happy to tell you that almost 700 square meters of floor space has been dedicated to overseas exhibitors. This is much higher than last year,” Saha added.

Bhupendra Singh, the chief executive officer of Messe Munchen said, “The beverage and dairy sector is growing exponentially and we are confident that with our partner Messe Dusseldorf, we will create value for the packaging industry.”

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 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.
