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.

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.
