At PackPlus 2016, Domino showcased its V-Series range of Thermal Transfer Overprint (TTO) coders which can print variable data, bar codes and images at 300 dpi quality onto flexible packaging films and labels for a wide range of manufacturing and packaging applications in the food, pharmaceutical and industrial segments. Domino also showcased its range of Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers which can print easy-to-read text and graphics to enable product identification on substrates from food, glass and plastic to metal and rubber.

In India, Domino is performing fairly well in several segments such as FMCG, automobile, pharma and food amongst others. It is also focussing particularly on the burgeoning SME segment (Small or Medium Enterprise), where it hopes to achieve a significant breakthrough and growth. Although the market is still unorganized with a host of companies providing end of line coding, Domino, founded in 1978, has established a global reputation for the development and manufacture of digital inkjet printing technologies, as well as its worldwide after-market products and customer services. Its services for the commercial print sector include digital inkjet printers and control systems designed to deliver solutions for a complete range of labelling and variable printing applications.

According to Domino, all its printers are designed to meet the high speed and quality demands of commercial printing environments, bringing new capabilities to a number of sectors including labelling, publications and security printing, transactional, packaging converting, plastic cards, tickets, game cards and forms, as well as direct mail and postal sectors.

Domino employs 2,600 people worldwide, sells to more than 120 countries through a global network of 25 subsidiary offices, and has more than 200 distributors. The company’s manufacturing facilities are situated in China, Germany, India, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the USA. Domino became an autonomous division within Brother Industries on 11 June 2015.

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.
