Sanner at CPhI India, India Expo Centre, 12-14 December 2018 Stand 14.D25

Sanner of India extends market position with teststrip packaging


South Asia’s largest pharmaceutical event CPhI & PMEC India is stepping in its 12th year success with Pharma Week from 12-14 December 2018, at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, India. At CPhI India, Germany-based Sanner is showcasing its portfolio of user-friendly desiccant and teststrip packaging solutions for pharmaceutical and healthcare products at Stand 14.D25. After the successful market introduction of the desiccant solutions AdCap and AdPack to the Indian market, Sanner of India now also markets teststrip packaging solutions.

For Giriraj Joshi, business development manager at Sanner of India, CPhI is the ideal platform to connect with customers and prospects “The show is a good opportunity to strengthen our position in the Indian market. Since our establishment in 2016, we have consequently optimized our services and expanded our portfolio. This is also reflected in the feedback from our customers,” Joshi said.

Apart from integrated desiccants, Sanner also provides a variety of desiccant drop-in solutions. AdCap desiccant capsules ensure excellent handling properties with smooth shape and high insertion speeds. In addition, the drop-in capsules provide a 30% higher humidity adsorption compared to conventional capsules. The AdPack desiccant sachets made of Tyvek material combine barrier protection, durability and breathability with high moisture adsorption.

Zydus Cadila, one of the leading global pharmaceutical companies in India, also relies on the desiccant solutions from Sanner. The same accounts for the new market segment of teststrip packaging. Pavan Chandra, associate director business development and international operations at Sensa Core said, “As one of the renowned healthcare and diagnostic device manufacturers in India, we rely on dependable service from our suppliers to keep our schedule and satisfy our customers.”

During the past year, Sanner has successfully introduced different teststrip packaging solutions to the Indian market and has expanded its customer base continuously. The user-friendly packaging with FlipTop closures is especially well received. They are easy to open and can be re-closed intuitively, ensuring a safe handling even of sensitive teststrips.

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 grown 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. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
