Clariant, a world leader in masterbatches and specialty compounds, has announced a price increase globally for its entire range of masterbatch and compound products containing titanium dioxide, polymers, carbon black, pigments, dyes and several additives by 4-7%. The prices will increase depending on the grade, concentration and quality of the titanium dioxide, polymer, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives. The increase includes white, black, color, additive masterbatches and compounds and relates to the product brands REMAFIN, RENOL, CESA, HiFormer and MEVOPUR.

This will be effective for all deliveries from 1 April 2018 or as soon as contracts allow. This price increase is due to the continued rise in prices of titanium dioxide, polymers, carbon black, pigments, dyes and additives driven by several factors, including supply-demand dynamics, ongoing capacity reductions in the pigment and dye industry and related increases in feedstock costs of several materials.

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.
