At the TGS stand, we met Murlidhar Nalli, managing director of the company, who was busy attending guests from Taiwan as well as a stream of visitors who flocked the stand inquiring about the Taiwanese made Wen Chyuan laminating machine on display.

The Wen Chyuan laminating machine features a laminating roller diameter of 820 mm and is suitable for PVC, thermal and BOPP lamination among others. The machine’s popularity can be gauged from the fact that TGS has already sold over 60 machines in the country.

FujifilmTGS, which is a three-decade-old company with its major unit in Hyderabad, which also houses the servicing support team. Talking about the maintenance of the Wen Chyuan laminating machines, Nalli said that servicing requirements are minimal as these machines rarely develop complications. Although the TGS stand is located in Hall 10, which is at the far end, Nalli said that he has received enthusiastic visitors and encouraging response at the exhibition.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
