Esko’s new initiative to connect and integrate its prepress software with its customers’ production workflow is what it is highlighting and explaining to existing and potential customers at Printpack India. Meanwhile, with its strong footprint, its customers keep adding new software and upgrades that are being announced at the show. Among these is Creative Graphics the multi-locational flexo plate trade supplier to the flexible packaging, label, and corrugated industry with plants in every region of the country. Creative’s signing of two licenses of Esko’s latest generation high PDF editor ArtPro and Advanced software was announced on the first day of the show.

Esko’s Karan Talwar said regarding the announcement, “Creative Graphics has been the front runner in the adoption of the latest and best technology from Esko for their prepress activities. It’s a natural progression for them to adapt to the latest generation PDF-based editing software through ArtPro+ Advanced and by seamlessly integrating it with their existing Esko Automation Engine server workflow.”

Another announcement on the first day of the show was of Nawalkishore press’s investment in an Esko Prepress System. Achintya Soni of Nawalkishore said at the time of the announcement, “Esko’s packaging prepress systems are very user friendly and the company provides prompt service support. The Artioscad and ArtPro+ packaging software suite will give us a high level of standardization and consistency in production. 

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.
