Gayatrishakti stall saw a full house during all the three days at IndiaCorr Expo, with visitors making a beeline for an audience. Gayatri Shakti Papers and Boards is renowned in the packaging industry for producing duplex and kraft papers and supplying them to leading carton and box convertors in India, Sri Lanka and Dubai regions. For the corrugated industry, Gayatri showcased its multilayer test liner, primarily used for packing of heavy goods including fridge, air conditioners and a few others that ensure the safety of products during transit.

“Our sole intention to participate in the event was to create a branding of kraft paper products ranging from 120 gsm to 300 gsm,” said Mahesh Jalan, Executive Director, Gayatrishakti Paper and Boards Ltd. “Among the range of products on display, the paper with 28 burst factor (BF) was our key product at the stall. With the development of ecommerce, there is a high possibility to cause an increase in consumption of kraft paper. Our state-of-the-art machinery is equipped with Valmet and Voith technology—a superior brand in paper machinery—that ensures smooth running of paper on corrugation machines and helps to perform consistently from reel to reel,” he added.

Currently, the company manufactures around 350 tons of kraft a day and expects to touch Rs. 600 crores of turnover in the current financial year. During Diwali season, the company plans to launch white liner board, manufactured and supplied by a few mills in India.

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 growing 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!
