Printers Milan At Yamuna Nagar

In its ongoing effort to ensure the growth and development of the printing and packaging industries, the Offset Printers’ Association (OPA) organizes Printers’ Milan in various cities and towns. 

This initiative aims to engage with local printing communities, understand their unique challenges and expectations, and foster a sense of unity and collaboration within the industry. By meeting printers in their own locales, the OPA gains a clearer understanding of the specific issues and obstacles faced by different printing businesses. This direct engagement allows for the development of tailored solutions and support, ensuring that the needs of printers are effectively met.

Printers’ Milan facilitates networking among local printers, fostering a sense of community and encouraging collaborative efforts. These connections can lead to partnerships, joint ventures, and a stronger collective voice in addressing industry-wide issues.

Recently, an OPA delegation visited Yamuna Nagar in Haryana for such a meeting. Discussions covered topics such as revised GST rates, the transformation of printing technologies, and the necessity of sustainable printing and packaging. 

A key objective of these meetings is to extend an invitation to printers to attend the International Conference on Sustainable Printing and Packaging. Scheduled to be held in Ayodhya from 6-9 September 2024, this conference will bring together global experts, industry leaders, and innovators to discuss the latest advancements and sustainable practices in printing and packaging. Many members of the YamuNanagar Offset Printers’ Association (YOPA) expressed deep interest in the upcoming International Conference on Sustainable Printing and Packaging.

The International Conference on Sustainable Printing and Packaging promises to be a landmark event, offering attendees a platform to explore cutting-edge technologies, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and contribute to the future of sustainable practices in the industry.

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!
