ProPak India 2019

After constant discussions with the key industry stakeholders, partners, and the local government, Informa Markets in India has taken the difficult but necessary decision to reschedule the upcoming Fi India & Hi 2020 and ProPak India 2020 shows, initially scheduled for 8-10 December 2020 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The shows will now take place from 30 September – 2 October 2021 at Bombay Exhibition Center (BEC), Mumbai.

The new dates will allow more time for normality and confidence to return to the marketplace and provide overall better conditions for exhibitors and visitors to engage. In the meantime, Informa Markets will be launching additional communications and digital opportunities to engage food ingredients, health ingredients, packaging, and processing industries and to keep the industry up-to-date leading up to the 2021 event date.

Fi India & Hi 2021 and ProPak India 2021 will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standards. Informa Markets has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

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!
