Mamata, one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of plastic bag and pouch-making machines globally showcased their machinery at PlastIndia 2023. Since 1989 Mamata has come a long way, from being the first Indian company to introducing plastic bag-making machines with stepper motors, drive & microprocessor controllers, and without conventional clutch-brake, rack-pinion assembly.

According to Varun Patel, director, the flexible packaging / converting markets are ever-changing. Cost competitiveness while addressing change quickly without compromising quality and versatility is the key to success. “At Mamata, we have always designed systems that are fit for today’s market needs and capable of seeing the road ahead, transforming the course, and winning the hearts of our customers. Our philosophy of providing machines with improved flexibility, operator friendliness with greater productivity has given our customers a vital edge in today’s competitive market.”

Patel adds, “The exhibition has been thrilling, Mamata has been a part of PlastIndia since inception and the excitement hasn’t dialed down to this day. We are exhibiting pouch-making, bag-making, and vertical form-fill sealing machines at the plastics show and the footfall has been tremendous. What I liked most was all the feedback we received from the visitors and it will help make Mamata even better.”

On the notion of newer industries on the uprise, Patel said, “The idea of competition isn’t challenging but exciting. The plastics industry is ever-growing and very demanding, and new industries and technology that are introduced into the market make us think differently. They act as a catalyst of our growth and we as an industry are preparing for the ‘packaging of tomorrow’ so the thought of something new in the market is very entertaining. Mamata is in a process of continuous expansion both in India and the US selling machinery to almost 90 different countries.”

Mamata opened a sales and support division in the USA in 2008 and in 2012 that got revamped into an R&D facility. “We have a strong presence in the frozen foods, nuts, and snack segments in the US market with a majority of our customers being repeat customers. Mamata has also been investing heavily in recycling and sustainability with hopes that our contribution will make an impact for the better.” 

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.
