Paperex, the well known and established exhibition and conference focusing on the paper, pulp and the related concerned industries finally started off on the morning of 10 May 2022 after the several delays and postponement caused by the pandemic over the past years. The footfall was good at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida which is across the river from Delhi and Hyve India, the organizers welcomed the exhibitors and visitors with warmth to the event. We had an opportunity to look at the entire spectrum of products and services relating to the Indian paper and allied industries and the strong links that it has with the global industry and suppliers.

The opening day’s seminar at Paperex discussed ‘Moving towards sustainability by maximizing paper and corrugation packaging.’ Sudeep Goenka, director, Shubham Goldiee Masale, and Sanjay Gupta, vice-president of corporate procurement and packaging development, DS Group, were the speakers. Both themes talked gave their views on the compelling arguments for sustainable packaging and the time bound paths that their organizations are taking to achieve this.

Our organization, IPP Catalog Publications also has a stand at Paperex and your Indian Printer & Publisher correspondent and our team spoke to some of the exhibitors participating and the visitors who attended the event on the first day. Speaking about their experience and expectations from the show they mainly indicated that the large crowds were wholly unexpected.  Resuming after the two pandemic years the turnout and the interest pleased the exhibitors as they found the visitors searching for better and more innovative paper products in an environment where the supply chain for the paper itself seems to be under pressure and raw material prices are a constant worry.

For those who missed attending on the first day of Paperex, registration is available at the entry gate of the India Expo Center and passes are there for the show. It is better to get back into the industry’s recovery earlier than later and find out about the latest grades technology of paper and paper board. It is even more important for the paper mills to understand the forthcoming demand and whether it can withstand the rise in costs and what are the next technologies and materials required for the road to sustainability.

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.
