Zipper bags or zip-lock bags is an innovative concept of reclosabilaty and reusability,” says Viral Shah, general manager of SVP. At PackPlus, the company displayed its range of zipper products including double flange zipper, single flange zipper, powder proof zipper, dual lock zipper and many more.

Speaking about the PackPlus exhibition, Shah says, “The visitor footfall at PackPlus 2016 is good. People are asking for different types of packaging solutions and when they discover certain things that they were looking for at our stand, they get impressed and look out for business with us. So in that way we are having a very good show.”

About the market, Shah says, “In the last five years, the concept of whole packaging has changed. People have started putting their effort into the packaging of the product as well as the product itself. So along with the product, people are focussing on its packaging as packaging plays a big role in selling a product. Good packaging makes a definite impact on the customer that the product is also going to be good. So people have started putting money into their packaging and are trying to look for innovative packaging – this is where we are looking out for customers who require different solutions for their packaging.”

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.
