For Avery Dennison, which specializes in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials, the theme for Labelexpo 2022 would be building a sustainable and resilient future. The company would showcase its range of sustainable and digital solutions, including RFID and NFC technologies. It will also talk about a range of solutions that help build premium shelf appeal and enhance the security of a brand.

Our booth – No. F8, Hall 3 – is focused on areas such as building a better customer experience, product innovation, sustainable solutions, futuristic technologies to build on customer engagement and our 25 years of business in India,” Saurabh Agarwal, senior director and general manager, LPM South Asia, said.

Agarwal said it is a great feeling to be a part of the expo that is taking place it after four years in India, and especially because it is happening after the pandemic. “As an organization, we are looking forward to the opportunities it will extend to interact with our industry, customers, and brands. We are coming up with some exciting avenues made for the future.”

The 2018 edition was a great show for us in terms of customer interaction and the products we showcased. We expect this edition to be better than the previous one.”

The company expects strong participation from the label ecosystem – machine manufacturers, RM suppliers, packaging material suppliers, and academia at the expo. “There is some renewed interest for fresh investments in this space from a new set of entrepreneurs as well. We are sure they will have a bunch of curious questions for us.”

Avery Dennison, in the last four years, is working to advance its approach in sustainability and digital solutions as Agarwal said. It has launched a bunch of new products ‘Think Thin’ portfolio in a bid to mitigate the inflation challenge.

Premium substrates and some unique counterfeiting solutions will also be on display. While we added these products, we made significant headwinds in expanding our footprint in India by opening a state-of-the-art greenfield facility in Greater Noida. We also made several key advancements in enhancing customer experience by offering unique targeted services.”

According to Agarwal, during the pandemic, the health and wellness segment received a lot of attention with product launches in categories such as sanitizers, home cleaners, ayurvedic and organic products.

We see continued demand in that category. The need for on-demand products or services has benefited a lot of start-ups and online business propositions. Digital payments have created some strong business opportunities in the ecosystem. The digital penetration in tier-II and cities has opened up the demand for eCommerce and has had a positive impact on the label ecosystem as well.”  

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.
