Designed for mainstream flexible packaging production, the HP Indigo 20000 offers improved economics with advanced color-matching capabilities across jobs, presses and sites, optimized production with multi-lane ganging, as well as expanded substrate compatibility. ColorMasters is using the press to provide packaging to food and beverage brands.

China-based Green Love, a prominent candy manufacturer, installed the country’s first HP Indigo 20000, bringing its previously outsourced customized candy packaging production in-house. The company is also looking to use the benefits of digital technology to evolve candy packaging into an advertising opportunity, which represents enormous market potential with its customer base.

Mexico-based Nanogruppe, an international leader in flexible packaging for the food and medical industries, acquired an HP Indigo 20000. South Africa-based REN-FORM, a 25-year-old commercial print house, acquired the first HP Indigo 20000 in Sub Sahara Africa for their flexible packaging division to expand their offering for specialized labels including in-mold labels, personalized branding and flexible packaging.

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.
