Bobst Visionfold that will be displayed at PrintPack

At this year’s PrintPack show, Bobst India will be showing running multiple jobs on its its high-speed folder gluer Visionfold 110 A2 with auto collection. It will also introduce a special feature on the Visionfold, to be revealed at the show.

Bobst believes Visionfold not only lets customers handle all the carton styles that one would expect but also with its ease of setup and effortless repeatability deliver the same flawless quality every time the job runs. This helps converters achieve just in time (JIT) deliveries and gain customer trust.

The company will showcase the technology with a variety of jobs. While every customer visiting its stand is a potential customer Bobst’s objective at PrintPack will be to meet key and prospective customers’ and listen to their demands.

Commenting on the recent demonetization of high value currency notes, Bobst says that this is a temporary disruption and that demand and consumption, especially in the food and FMCG space could be hit in one quarter. Overall, according to the company, the economy is stable and India is on the growth path. Thus while the investment cycle could take a temporary hit, it will come back to its normal cycle.

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.
