Ashutosh Shastri of Ronald Web Offset

Faridabad-based Ronald Web Offset has tied up with China’s Ming Yang to bring automatic die punching machine to the Indian market. The machine has displayed the automatic die punching machine at Printpack 2019 at its stall.

“Packaging market in India is growing and we have decided to offer packaging solution in the form of automatic die punching machine. We have tied up with Ming Yang and will target companies in mono carton and corrugation industry,” says Ashutosh Shastri of Ronald Web Offset.

Ronald is showing solution from it established web offset division as well. It is displaying a web offset press with bearer to bearer cylinder, which is a new offering from Ronald’s stable.

Shastri says that the company has started focusing heavily on the smaller regional newspapers, which are growing, as the brand is now well established among leading newspapers.

“We have seen that investment in newspaper industry has again started to pick up after recent lull. This year should be good,” he adds.

Talking about the response received at Printpack, Shastri says that the visitor count is significantly higher than that during the last edition of the Printpack. “Overall the expo has been very successful from our point of view,” he says.

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!
