“Not only do we supply to Indian customers such as packaging converters, we also export our films to clients in markets such as Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, North America and Europe, to name just a few,” says Manish Tiwari, head of department – Bopet Film Production, Sparsh Industries.

The company has seen some milestones in last the few years with the expansion of metallizing film manufacturing capacity in 2015, BOPET film manufacturing capacity expansion in 2016 and commissioning of holographic film plant in 2017. Sparsh Industries is expected to have a 8,000 metric tons per year capacity of CPP films this year.

Talking about Plastindia, Tiwari says that the company met with many packaging convertors as well as potential clients for other industries as well.

“It has been a very good Plastindia,” he says.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
