Om Vir Print O Pack showed its complete range of post-press machines, including collator, binder,  gluing and thermal lamination equipment at last month’s PrintPack India 2022 exhibition in Greater Noida. Established in 1999, Mumbai-based Om Vir Print O Pack manufactures, imports and exports post-press equipment. The trading company imports machines from China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea.

“The company’s products are well priced in the market as we provide service, installation, spare parts and guarantees on our machines. There is a trend shift away from manual operations, even in packaging and businesses are now gravitating toward rigid boxes, screen printing, and gluing machines,” says Viren Shah, managing director, Om Vir Print O Pack.

Printpack brought a substantial number of business visitors and the exhibitors were confident of closing deals at the event. Shah said that the first two days had few inquiries, while the third day saw a spike. Expressing his delight at the large turnout for the expo, he noted that every member of his staff was actively interacting with visitors and potential clients for the entirety of each day.

“There are several opportunities in the printing sector as India is a large nation with many possibilities. I think there’s a lot of potential here, and we’re feeling very good right now. Moreover, based on our inquiries at Printpack, we believe the demand for equipment is still alive and well,” concludes Shah.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
