Dubai-headquartered Emerging Graphics supplies a variety of solutions to the print and packaging industry. In India, the company has its office in Navi Mumbai with sales offices in Ahmedabad, Indore and New Delhi. At the upcoming Pamex 2017, the company will showcase software solutions for packaging customers as well as a digital cutting table.

EngView, a package and display designer suite, is an integrated CAD/CAM software for 2D design of folding carton, corrugated and rigid board. Another software that will be shown is PaSharp from China-based Founders. This suite of prepress productivity tools has evolved from Founder’s 30 years of accumulated research and development experience in the graphic arts. The PaSharp suite offers professional trapping tools, specialized step and repeat functions for packaging as well as a series of editing tools enabling prepress operators to boost efficiency and produce higher quality work.

PaSharp has achieved good performance in offset, flexo and gravure prepress fields, and has been used in combination with mainstream CtP and workflow software of Founder, Kodak, Screen, Agfa and Heidelberg.

Another offering from Founder to be shown by Emerging Graphics will be EagleRIP, which creates PDF and PostScript jobs. EagleRIP provides support for features within PDF 1.7 and PostScript 3. It supports over 100 CtP, CtF, Indigo press, laser printer and digital proofer devices, as well as 1 bit TIFF, 8-bit TIFF and Winprint output used by most leading vendor print devices.

Emerging Graphics will also run a demonstration of a digital cutting table with dimension of 1.1 x 1.3 meter from iEcho. “We are looking to focus on potential customers eager to foray into the packaging business and who want cost-effective solutions to start off their business,” says Tushar Pande of Emerging Graphics.

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
