The immense growth of the corrugation industry in India in recent years has warranted the absorption of imported machines in India with a stable sales network that provides accessible and professional service. Suba Solutions is one of the companies that has earned a reputation for offering high quality imported corrugation machinery at affordable prices. Being present at the IndiaCorr Expo held at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, C Naresh, director at Suba Solutions, while speaking to Packaging South Asia said, “The branding and promotion of IndiaCorr Expo is commendable and we always receive a large number of genuine visitors. We have corrugation industry experts as well as recent entrants in the industry participating as exhibitors in the event, which provides a broad spectrum of opportunities to everyone present.”

Suba Solutions provides end-to-end solutions for the corrugation industry with solutions for postpress cartons, duplex cartons, 5-ply plants for corrugation, flexo printer slotters, flute laminators along with automatic and semi-automatic diecutting machines amongst other ancillary equipment. With material handling systems and bailing presses in its range of offerings, Suba Solutions is well equipped to fulfil all requirements pertaining to the corrugation industry, says Naresh. “Queries kept pouring in throughout the expo without any frivolous visitors which is generally the case at other such exhibitions. We had our existing customers visiting our stand and were able to strengthen our business ties with them. What was heartening was to have new potential customers showing interest in our machines. This can help us increase our market through regular follow-ups,” says Naresh. Overall, the state of the corrugation industry is quite promising, feels Naresh. He says, “The mood in the industry is optimistic at the moment. Several projects have taken off and many companies are in the process of either expanding or upgrading its equipment which bodes well for suppliers like us.”

“Today we have an end-to-end solution for automatic corrugation with automatic corrugated lines, flexo printer slotters and the flexo folder-gluers. Recently we finished installation of a flexo folder-gluer at Sree Lakshmi Printing and Packaging in Hosur near Bengaluru. This machine is equipped for flexo folding with in-line folding and gluing. Suba is currently commissioning a 5-ply plant in Chennai and it has also supplied two horizontal bailing presses for a paper recycler. The year has been good so far and we are optimistic about our growth prospects as well as the growth curve of the industry,” concludes Naresh.

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.
