Alon Bar-Shany, vice president and general manager at HP Indigo, said, “Brands want quality and good price, they want faster on-time delivery, they want to be able to react much faster through various elements of customization, and there’s a certain growing aspect of brand protection and security. With the HP Indigo presses, we are trying not to just provide printing technology, but work on an interim solution, which will enable everything from design, color management, printing to finishing, and of course meeting the very high quality standards of offset.”

“The HP technology will simplify the complexity of design handling, allow our customers to dip in and out of their short-run requirements, smart packaging support like greater track-and-trace and the ability to interact with their end-users,” said Siddharth Kejriwal, director of Parksons Packaging.

The HP Indigo 30000 is a 7-color press with CMYK OVG, interchangeable with white ink. This extended color gamut enables printing of PANTONE colors to fulfill strict brand color requirements. It is capable of printing on paperboards, metPET and synthetic material of 250-600 microns thickness. The press comes equipped with two interchangeable coating units for aqueous and UV varnishes. It can produce high-quality, B2-format (20×30-inch) applications and has HP’s one-shot technology integrated, which enables perfect color-to-color registration. It also has an in-built spectrophotometer for easy color management.

“HP Indigo 30000 brings path-breaking innovation into the packaging printing segment with its unique digital capabilities that can help create customized and personalized products. We are excited to work with Parksons Packaging and help them drive greater value and quality for their customers,” said A Appadurai, country manager, Indigo and PageWide Web Press, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc.

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!
