Sankoch Gaur, director, technical, of SASG at drupa 2024

Faridabad-based SASG UV Solutions has showcased its Dripmaster coating solution at drupa 2024. The machine, launched in April 2022, is designed for various coating applications, including hybrid, flood coatings, water-based coating, UV coatings, HSL, and others.

According to Sankoch Gaur, director, technical, at SASG UV Solutions, the Dripmaster machine is easy to maintain, operator-friendly, and can be synchronized with any offset press. “It is a very versatile solution,” he said.

In addition to the Dripmaster, SASG UV Solutions is also highlighting its cold foil machine.

Talking about their participation at drupa, Gaur emphasized that it’s an extremely important event and a great platform to meet potential buyers from across the world.

drupa is an exhibition visited by a variety of international buyers. We have met a lot of potential customers from Turkey, Mexico, and Morocco, as well as from eastern European countries. Being at drupa opens a lot of markets for exports. We do not have much presence in the European and African countries, so we are using the drupa platform to look for channel partners. Our experience at the expo has been very, very good,” Gaur said.

Currently, SASG UV Solutions exports only to Asian countries such as Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and the UAE. At drupa, the company is located in hall 5, stand A05.

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