With the rising appreciation in the market, TCPL too has grown with a CAGR of 21% over the past ten years. With a 20% dividend policy that it has submitted to the BSE, the company is constantly investing in high technology equipment and maintaining an even-handed policy of loyalty to its suppliers. It continues to open new plants, expand its capacity and consolidate its earlier investments. In addition, TCPL has made a robust investment in human capital with a slew of professionals with considerable experience in its plants across the country.

In January 2015, TCPL opened a new monocarton plant in Guwahati with a single line, which it has decided to double by March 2017 to service brand owners there. Generally adding capacity at the rate of one multicolor offset press each year, in 2015 the company installed two presses along with ancillary equipment in its endeavor to accelerate its already strong growth pace.

TCPL Packaging’s managing director Saket Kanoria says, “TCPL’s new installations are accompanied by enhanced infrastructure. At the same time we are adding two new multicolor offset presses in FY 2016–17—a fourth line at Silvassa, which is a 7-color plus double coater for special effects including haptics such as soft-touch as well anti-counterfeiting 3D-effects.” In Goa, where the company already has a carton printing and converting plant, TCPL plans to build and commission a new greenfield site with a capacity of five production lines to serve the western and southern regions, and particularly the demand for pharmaceutical
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.
