Faridabad-based packaging solutions provider PR Packagings manufactures variety of products such as laminated tubes, cartons, rigid boxes and labels under one roof. It caters to customers in industries such as pharma, cosmetics and electronics. The company showcased its products at the recently concluded Innopack Pharma Confex 2018 in Mumbai.   

“The main reason for putting up a stall at Innopack Pharma Confex and displaying our packaging solutions was that we wanted the pharma, cosmetics and oral care industry to know that we can be a one stop shop for both tubes as well as cartons. This can help customers reduce costs and get consistent quality by having a single vendor of tubes and cartons,” says Vishesh Gupta, director, PR Packagings.

Talking about the company’s performance in the financial year ending 31 March 2018, Gupta says that the year was good with a minor blip post GST implementation. “The financial year 2017-2018 was a good year despite events like demonetization and GST. We saw growth in excess of 15%. We expect the current and the next year to be very good as well thanks to our focus on innovation and constant introduction of new products,” he says.

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 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.
