Brand owners scout for product enhancements and customised solutions to give shelf-impact to their products on retail shelves. Anti-counterfeiting and sustainability are also concerns. At LabelExpo India 2022, the UFlex Holography business is exhibiting its registered foil stamping solutions, cold foil solutions, hybrid security labels, holographic sterling lens effects, and 3D optics labels. These products serve the dual purpose of brand enhancement and anti-counterfeiting for a large number of brands across industries globally.

The UFlex Printing Cylinders business division is displaying its wide range of solutions including flexo plates, elastomer plates, and photopolymer plates. The UFlex Cylinders business division manufactures Flexo KodakNX printing plates that are popular worldwide owing to their excellent print quality. Flexo KodakNX printing plates are the preferred choice for flexo printing on account of their laser square spot imaging technology. The print efficiencies and compatibility of these plates with sustainable inks (water-based inks) enable printers and brand owners to step closer to their sustainability goals, in addition to delivering excellent quality print impressions.

The Holography business of UFlex includes client range in the pharmaceutical, automotive, FMCG, consumer electronics, F&B, and textiles industries. The business offers an array of holographic solutions to brand owners to help their brands stand out on retail shelves, distinguish their products from fake products, and authenticate legitimate transactions and returns – thus promoting safe business practices.

The Printing Cylinders Business of UFlex traverses the complete print life-cycle from design to print and offers printing consistency and eco-friendly products to the flexible packaging, textiles, wood and steel industries. With its manufacturing facilities in Noida, Jammu and Sanand (Gujarat), it offers high-quality printing cylinders and flexo plates, along with exceptional customer service. Its Noida facility is equipped with a fully automatic robotic laser engraving line from Think Laboratory in Japan, and a direct and indirect embossing line from Europe.

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!
