BHS India, a known name in the corrugated industry, has confirmed its availability for the IndiaCorr Expo, which takes place from 8-10 October in Mumbai. BHS will showcase its existing automation features such as glue application, heat control, splice synchronization, BLC (Bridge Level Control), Bottom Liner Detection, temperature control, and more at Hall 4, Stand A53. The company will, however, focus more on the upcoming automation features such as BDC ( Board Dimension Control), ZDS 2.0 (Zero Defect System), and Auto
Pilot, which will change how case makers work.

Ajay Bhardwaj, sales manager – India, BHS India, says, “IndiaCorr Expo 2021 at Greater Noida, which took place just after Covid-19, was fantastic for the company as we received good responses. In 2022, we are expecting a decent footfall and a good prospect list of customers so that we can grow more and reach out in the industry in less time and at a reasonable cost. We are looking forward to educating and enhancing the skill levels of industry people so that everyone can contribute to the growth. It will benefit everyone, starting from the customers to the suppliers.”

The company says it will touch a figure of 20 corrugator lines in India by end2022. Bhardwaj adds, “The Make in India drive is showing results, we can see a change in the approach of the investors in India. The India corrugated boxes market is expected to exhibit a CAGR at a much faster pace during 2022-2027 because whatever is going to be manufactured in India will need a box to be packed according to the need for primary, secondary, or tertiary packaging. The corrugated packaging and folding carton segments both will get a bigger pie in the days to come.”

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!
