The market size of India’s packaging industry is expected to touch US$ 72.6 billion by FY 2020 on account of rising population and income levels. The growth is driven primarily by pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages. About 45% of the packaging machinery and materials produced is absorbed by the food processing sector alone, 25% by the pharmaceuticals sector, and 10% each by the personal products, tea, coffee and industrial product industries. These optimistic figures open up various new opportunities for the industry. Amid this scenario, PackPlus is setting up a business and networking platform for the industry from 28-31 August 2019 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The event will be co-located with CartonTech, SupplyPlus, PackSol and India Converting Show.

Prateek Kaushik, portfolio director says, “The industry has recognized and appreciated PackPlus over the last several years. Today PackPlus is the biggest show in its category and is growing with each edition. Now, after coming under the umbrella of Reed Exhibitions, our exhibitors and visitors will experience the rise in overall class and quality of the exhibition.”

The exhibitors span across three major segments–primary packaging and automation, supply chain, material handling and flexible packaging, converting and corrugation. With 325+ exhibitors having already signed up for the show, PackPlus is expected to showcase a wide range of products and services related to packaging machines, materials and equipment, coding and marking solutions.

Key solutions on display include flexo, gravure, offset and screen printing presses, label printing equipment, corrugated box making machinery, paper, film, foil, inks and other consumables, food production and processing equipment, barcodes and RFID, rigid and flexible packaging, flexible intermediate container, woven, sacks and other bulk packaging solutions, end-of-line packaging solutions, supply chain, logistics and material handling and much more.

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.
