TechNova, India’s leading technology pioneer and manufacturer of a full range of offset and digital printing solutions, is Esko’s new reseller in India. TechNova, a well-known name in the Indian Graphic Arts industry, has its presence in almost all print segments with sales offices in almost all the major cities and they have the widest distribution network in the industry.

TechNova, headquartered in Taloja, Maharashtra, will be promoting Esko’s software and hardware solution in the offset folding carton segment. Esko’s product portfolio supports and manages the packaging and print processes at brand owners, retailers, designers, packaging manufacturers and print service providers. TechNova has a strong base of packaging manufacturers with their complete range of digital plate products, CtP solutions, and green consumables.

Pranav Parikh, chairman and managing director of Technova says, “It comes as a natural synergy between our two organizations. With Esko’s leadership position in packaging prepress integrated with TechNova’s wide range of CtP solutions, plates, chemicals and digital printing solutions, it will complete the entire prepress workflow. There is a huge pressure from brand owners on packaging converters to eliminate errors, produce the right colors, and reduce cost while demanding shorter time to market. We believe that with Esko’s addition to TechNova’s portfolio we can address all of these concerns and be the preferred choice of any packaging converter for their prepress requirements.”

John Winderam, general manager of Esko says, “Esko values our new partnership with TechNova highly and we’re very excited to see the tremendous growth potential in this offset folding carton segment. TechNova can always count on us at Esko as their most trusted partner.”

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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!
