Plastics Export Promotion Council

8

Uflex Limited has been conferred upon the Export Award in the Metalized Polyester Film category by The Plastics Export Promotion Council for the Financial Year 2013-14. The award ceremony coincides with the diamond jubilee celebrations of the council (PLEXCONCIL). The Export Awards are decided on the basis of the export returns filed by the council members. The top two exporters are selected among those filing returns for a particular product category. Chartered accountant certificates corroborating and supporting the declared figures finally help the jury decide the winners.

Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex, said, “Our commitment to deliver the best in terms of plastic films and flexible packaging solutions in India is as unwavering as that for the rest of the world.” Uflex is the largest fully integrated Indian flexible packaging solution provider. It enjoys a formidable market presence in more than 140 countries. Uflex has state-of-the-art packaging facilities at multiple locations in India with installed capacity of over 99,000 TPA.

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.
