At the recently concluded PrintPack 2017, Uflex showcased its entire range of holography products. We met Bharpur Singh, senior manager – marketing, at the Uflex stand where he talked in brief about the company’s entire holography range of products on display, including holograms, specialized holographic films, lamination films for digital as well as offset, as well as for gravure technology.

Singh gave details of the registered fresnel lens, which he said was the showstopper at the Uflex stand, generating 70-80% of the inquiries. In the last 7-8 years, there have been very few game-changers in the Indian carton industry. With the coming of the fresnel lens technology, this segment has seen a fresh lease of life. Until now, buyers in India were mostly relying on imports from China, Europe and other places but Uflex changed the scenario by introducing fresnel lens technology to the country. Uflex entered into a collaboration with WaveFront Technology, USA to produce these films. At PrintPack, Singh said that Uflex received many queries from converters as well as end users for fresnel lens.

FujifilmFresnel lens films have two main aspects—static and security. The static feature is ideal for cosmetics, perfumes and other luxury products since the 3D lens effect is an eye-catching feature of the product. In terms of security, it has a good application on anti-counterfeiting as the process of making these films is quite tedious, hence making it difficult to replicate. Nowadays, many FMCG and pharmaceutical companies have adopted this technology as an anti-counterfeiting solution.

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.
