The German company said that Cosmo Films, an Indian manufacturer of packaging and label films, will install a new BOPP film production line from Brückner Maschinenbau at its Aurangabad plant in a press release dated 17 November. The line is 10.4 meters wide and has a production speed of 600 meters per minute. 

Cosmo chief executive officer Pankaj Poddar says, “The new 5-layer line for the manufacture of BOPP specialty films at our Aurangabad location will be the largest of its kind in the world and will allow us to expand our sales within the specialty markets.” 

Chairman and managing director Ashok Jaipuria adds, “To go again with our long-term partner Brückner is simply a logical step. We have been working together based on trust for many years and have successfully managed large projects. The current example is our first BOPET film line, which is in the final stages of commissioning – Here, too, the cooperation is trusting and close, and in this spirit, we will also take over in our new BOPP project.”

Cosmo Films had first announced about the new BOPP line in September this year. The company had said that the line would require an investment of Rs 350 crore and will be funded through internal accruals. 

Cosmo Films, established in 1981, is a global leader in specialty films for packaging, lamination, labeling, and synthetic paper. The product portfolio includes BOPP and CPP films, and soon BOPET films too. Today, the company is the largest exporter of BOPP films from India and the largest producer of thermal lamination films globally. Its customer base is spread in more than 100 countries, with manufacturing units in India, Korea, and Japan. 



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.
