The already postponed 11th edition of the PlastIndia exhibition which was re-scheduled to be held from 17 to 21 February 2022 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi has again been postponed to as yet unannounced date. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its health and safety precautions across the country have cited as the reasons for the latest postponement.

The show was originally to return to Pragati Maidan from 4 to 9 February 2021 and was then rescheduled to February 2022. PlastIndia was held at Pragati Maidan for many of its editions when it became too big for the site and then the site itself began renovation and reconstruction. The show moved to Gujarat and was held in Ghandinagar near Ahmedabad for the last three shows. The tenth edition of PlastIndia 2018 held in Gandhinagar had a footfall of around 250,000 visitors with over 1,800 exhibitors from 44 countries.

The reconstruction of Pragati Maidan in Delhi was expected to be complete for holding the show in 2021 when the pandemic intervened. With the expectation of a return to near-normality, PlastIndia was rescheduled to February 2022 at the same site. Plastindia Foundation’s President Jigish Doshi stated, “The PlastIndia series of exhibitions under the aegis of Plastindia Foundation, provides investors and industrialists with increasing opportunities to expand their presence. The show covers the entire gamut of plastics producers, processors and users of plastics, and it witnesses intense participation by both Indian and International Plastics Fraternity.”

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.
