Sustainability and innovation were at the heart of the Avery Dennison Fespa 2022 stand in Berlin, offering installers insights into new sales opportunities and improvements to both environmental performance and their bottom line. A particular focus was placed on automotive and architectural segments, where key innovations have made an especially strong impact.

As part of the new sustainable print portfolio, Avery Dennison SP 1504 Easy Apply PVC-free digital film for automotive wraps is the result of a long research project and now offers premium performance to print projects without contributing to the use of chlorine, phthalates, or other halogens. Visitors to the stand were able to see the wrapping film’s excellent printability with stunning colors, along with excellent conformability and repositionability.

Avery DennisonAlessandro Sacchi, product line director, Graphics Solutions Europe, said that sustainability no longer has to mean compromising on performance, “Our customers face real-world pressures, and they need to maintain the highest performance possible at any given price point. These sustainable portfolio materials are the result of extensive research and development. They have been developed to make sure that installers don’t have to offer second-best when transforming their own and their end users’ environmental footprint.”

Another offering in the sustainable print portfolio was Avery Dennison SP 3523 Opaque Matt. This is a new addition to the popular 3000 series, providing a more sustainable PVC-free alternative to PVC products for short-term promotional graphics. A valuable new tool for installers planning projects for stores, events, and other indoor locations.

For installers looking at architecture projects and seeking new ways to decorate interior walls, Fespa included the Organoid Natural Surfaces portfolio, under the theme ‘See. Feel. Smell’. Designed to engage all of the senses, and bring the outdoors inside, the portfolio uses renewable and authentic handcrafted materials with self-adhesive backing. It offers inspiration from nature to interior projects and copes with a wide range of wall and window surfaces.

Elizabeth Park, director of innovation and marketing excellence, Graphics EMENA, “Innovation and sustainability go hand in hand, and motivated research teams are a key part of ensuring success. Our approach to sustainability is comprehensive, including areas such as social responsibility, as well as environmental impacts, both internally and in the supply chain. These new materials are the result of very dedicated work by many Avery Dennison teams and many of our external partners. We are confident that they offer installers important new options as they face their own sustainability demands.”

Fespa 2022 also offered a glimpse into a shortly arriving launch: Avery Dennison SPF-X3, the latest paint protection film, offering vehicles water-repelling and paint protection properties that last up to ten years – a premium choice when stain resistance is important.

Li Wen, senior director and general manager, Graphics EMENA, “Fespa 2022 allowed us to showcase innovations for everyone, and we are very excited by the opportunities opening up in the graphics industry as economies continue to make their way out of the pressures felt during the pandemic. The future lies in innovation, and Fespa gave us the opportunity to demonstrate that Avery Dennison is at the forefront of innovation.”

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.
