From 26 to 28 October 2017 the first edition of the trade fair trio comprising pacprocess India, indiapack and food pex India will take place at the Pragati Maidan Exhibition Centre in New Delhi. Forming part of the interpack alliance, this trio of events is the result of a cooperation between Messe Düsseldorf and the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP). The ‘ISPI International Summit for Packaging Industry’ conceived and organised by the IIP and drink technology India by Messe München will be held concurrently with the fairs.

 More than 200 companies have registered for these trade fairs and will be presenting solutions from fields such as packaging machines and machines and equipment for the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, automation technology and components and as well as recycling and environmental technology (pacprocess India) on approximately 11,000 square metres. Also on display will be packaging materials and accessories as well as machinery and technology for the manufacturing of packaging and packaging aids (indiapack). The trade fair trio of the interpack alliance are complemented with machines and equipment for the manufacturing of food, confectionary and bakery products (food pex India). drink technology India organised concurrently by Messe München focuses on the beverages and liquid food segments. Germany, China and Taiwan will organise official country pavilions.

 The long established ‘ISPI – International Summit for Packaging Industry’ now organised by the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP) in parallel with these trade fairs this year comes under the heading of ‘Packaging – the Growth Driver.’ This title was chosen in view of the importance of the packaging industry for economic growth in India. The development of the process chain from packaging raw materials to retail packaging is both an indicator of, and driver for, this dynamically growing economy. Focal themes of the summit, centring on the promising Indian market, include technical issues associated with packaging food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and healthcare products. Further subjects include sustainable packaging and zero-waste approaches to packaging as well as packaging design and printing.

 The trade fair trio comprising pacprocess India, indiapack and food pex India is held every year. Next year Mumbai will host the event. Pursuant to the cooperation agreement recently concluded with the interpack alliance, the Italian machinery producers’ association UCIMA will support marketing of the Indian events by canvassing visitors and organising an Italian pavilion from 2018. The drink technology India trade fair organised by Messe München will also be held concurrently next year.

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.
