By 2021, the rise in costs has reached unprecedented levels, affecting all businesses and their suppliers throughout the printing industry. Until now, Xsys has been able to secure supply of key raw materials and access to supply networks by absorbing this cost inflation through various cost-reduction initiatives and projects and technology improvements, and other efficiency gains. 

Xsys productions costs rise with an increase in energy prices

As we enter 2022, cost inflation is continuing to be passed on by suppliers, and the impact is coming from several directions –

  • Double-digit price increases are being levied by raw material and feedstock suppliers. 
  • Energy prices have soared, resulting in a significant rise in Xsys production costs and increased costs from suppliers.
  • Transport and freight costs to customers have increased and continue to do so, which also impacts the cost of supply for raw materials.

There are currently no signs that this inflation will start retracting soon. As a result, Xsys will mitigate the impact by putting a price increase of 6% across the nyloflex product range on 1 February 2022.

“Our priority remains, as always, to offer a constant and reliable supply of products to our customers, irrespective of the current market conditions. We will naturally maintain full support with technical service and quality products during this challenging period to ensure that our customers can continue to service their customers,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president at Xsys. “In addition, Xsys will invest in more projects and high-efficiency drives designed to counter the inflation where possible.”


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.
