Interview - Alessandro Parimbelli, chief executive officer at Coesia

Coesia at Ipack-Ima and Pharmintech.

What prospects do you see for 2022?

2022 has started positively in terms of sales and new opportunities, with an increase in business compared to last year. The geopolitical and economic situation is inevitably having an impact on our industry as well. In addition to a general increase in raw materials, we are experiencing difficulties in sourcing electronic components and increasing logistical complexities. Nevertheless, at Coesia we are continuing to work closely with customers and suppliers to support them in their investment and technological development projects.

What technologies will you be bringing to the show?

Coesia participates in both Ipack-Ima and Pharmintech. Thanks to its companies, the Group offers a complete portfolio of solutions and services in the Consumer sector and is also present in the Pharma sector. In order to support its customers, who are facing new market challenges aimed increasingly at greater sustainability and digitization of processes, Coesia has chosen to bring its sustainability, digitization, automation and e-commerce solutions to the show. In addition, the eight participating companies (ACMA, Atlantic Zeiser, Citus Kalix, FlexLink, GF, HAPA, Norden and Volpak) will present their latest innovations in terms of production, printing and factory automation to improve production efficiency, digitization of operations and the ecological footprint of packaging for the FMCG and pharmaceutical markets.

What are your expectations for the event?

We expect the 2022 editions of Ipack-Ima and Pharmintech to be driven by the desire to restart after two years marked by the impossibility of organizing exhibitions. We are enthusiastic about presenting our solutions and our technological innovations, about meeting customers and visitors, and about supporting them in all their business needs.

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 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.
