Ahmedabad-based Acme Rolltech wrapped up a successful Pamex 2023 that took place in Mumbai from 27-30 March. The company talked about its ACE – Advanced Channel Engraving technology, which provides unique benefits for different industry segments, including labels, offset coating applications, wide web flexo, CI flexo, and corrugation, and promoted its ATAC, AHDW, and AHDC special anilox rolls.

We had a very successful Pamex 2023. We met a lot of our existing and potential customers. Pamex is a great platform where varied stakeholders from the industry take part. We had participated in the previous Pamex and it was excellent as well. It is always great to be here,” says Sandeep Sharma, director of Acme Rolltech.

Solid growth projections

Talking about the company’s prospects in the current fiscal year, Sharma says Acme will grow its topline by more than 30%.

We have made a name for ourselves in the domestic market and our exports are growing at a robust clip. In the last couple of years, we have grown by about 25%. This year, we expect to clock a growth rate of over 30%. We will participate in overseas shows in the coming months to get a better foothold in the global market,” Sharma adds.

Acme will participate in Labelexpo Brussels, scheduled to take place in September this year. The company also plans to take part in drupa next year.

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 grown 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.
