Siegwerk, a leading global provider of printing inks for packaging applications and labels, will exhibit at this year’s ‘components 2017’, a supplier trade fair organized as part of interpack, the leading trade show for processes and packaging in Düsseldorf. By providing a combination of quality ink performance, optimum product safety and continuous support and guidance, Siegwerk intends to help its customers deal with upcoming trends and to meet their individual needs with cutting-edge ink solutions. Visitors to the fair can get in touch with Siegwerk’s experts at Hall 18, Stand E13 to learn more about its packaging inks
and services or to discuss packaging print innovations and trends.

Hugo Noordhoek Hegt, president EMEA at Siegwerk, explains what the company’s motto for the show is all about. “‘components’ is an ideal touch point for sharing ideas as well as discussing challenges and new requirements with our customers. This kind of lively exchange helps us understand our customers better and focus our R&D efforts to continue shaping the future of packaging.”

Siegwerk completed a number of strategic investments during the last year. The company has built a laboratory dedicated to the development of customized inkjet solutions, opened a brand new Blending Center for the production of water-based inks and expanded its local presence in China by opening its new Packaging Ink Solution Center–to just name a few examples of the company’s latest investments aimed at driving the future of packaging.

When formulating its inks, Siegwerk looks for optimum performance based on customers’ processes and also ensures that these inks are safe to use for the desired packaging applications. Siegwerk has also been helping its customers in complying with regulatory guidelines. In addition to its best-in-class ink solutions the company also offers customers guidance and support, for example in termsof process optimization, complexity reduction and efficiency gains for printing shops.

“We just established a new digital business unit to understand how customer proximity and big data can help us improve our services to customers, to enhance the work of our sales teams and to initiate new infrastructure projects designed to generate worldwide synergies,” says Herbert Forker, CEO of Siegwerk.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
