Exhibitors’ excitement for ProPak India 2021

Our team got in touch with a few companies and asked for their opinions about ProPak India and noticed their excitement. As this event is taking place after a two-year break, the exhibitors are not expecting many visitors due to Covid-19 restrictions as they know people are still avoiding gatherings due to the pandemic.

In a conversation with Packaging South Asia Heena Mistry from Control Print added, “Control Print is regularly participating in ProPak India, and we are very excited about the event. This is the first event happening after Covid, and we are showing industrial printing machines based on coding. Our experience at ProPak was good in 2019, and we expect this time will also be good.”

Sachin Joshi from Sacmi shared his excitement, “This is the first time that we are exhibiting at ProPak India, and we will be displaying our samples and machinery for beverages. We have updated our machinery during the Covid-19 crisis, which we are going to showcase to our customers. Yes, we are excited for this trade show but not expecting much of a crowd. We will also be surveying and networking at the event. We are keen to know about other manufacturers who will be exhibiting their machinery at this event.”

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 Asia is 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.
