The eleventh edition of the International Plastics Exhibition PlastIndia 2023, concluded successfully on 5 February, witnessing a footfall of 3.60 lakh, according to the organizers. Around 1,800 exhibitors showcased their processing machinery, raw materials, recycling technology, and latest automation technologies, reaching out to potential customers and identifying newer avenues for growing their business. 

A CEO Conclave presided over by Minister of Chemicals & Fertilizers and Health & Family Welfare Mansukh Bhai Mandaviya was organized at the exhibition venue.

More than 90 industry leaders and CEOs attended a CEO conclave presided over by Minister of Chemicals & Fertilizers and Health & Family Welfare Mansukh Bhai Mandaviya, deliberating on how the Indian plastics industry can reach its full potential. They agreed on the need for the industry and the policymakers to walk hand in hand so that the policies can be encouraging to the industry instead of being a deterrent.

Jigish Doshi, president, Plastindia Foundation, said, “I am delighted to say that Plastindia 2023 has been a grand success. Since this was a business-only exhibition with the entire range of offerings from industry, right from raw materials, to machinery, to finished goods showcased under one roof, both exhibitors and the visitors found it very beneficial.”

Ajay Shah, chairman of National Executive Council, Plastindia 2023, said, “The outcome was very promising. The innovations and the technologies showcased will set the road map for the future.”

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
