Suba Solutions, a young enterprise that started operations in 2003, believes that the corrugation and mono carton sectors have started converging. This fact resonated in the profile of visitors that frequented Suba Solution’s stall at IndiaCorr Expo. “We no longer talk about the corrugation sector in isolation as it has converged with the mono carton segment. Today, there are so many board plant players that have forayed into mono cartons and vice versa. So I would not term it as an event visited only by corrugators. We received visitors from both the streams,” said V Vaidyalingam, director, Suba Solutions.

At the event, Vaidyalingam talked about Suba’s array of products for mono carton and corrugation segments, especially flute laminators and Brausse die cutter and folder gluers. He also shared that the combined installation base of Brausse die cutters and folders gluers is approaching 100 in India.

Brausse, member of the Bobst Group, makes TA series of folder gluers, TA650, TA900 and TA1100, for micro-corrugated and cardboard boxes. It manufactures Manifolder and ETERNA series of folder gluers besides the highly popular 1050E, an automatic diecutter, amongst other diecutter models.

Talking about the extraordinary response they received at the IndiaCorr Expo, Vaidyalingam said, “We got a chance to meet many of our existing customers. A platform like this is very useful because we cannot personally visit every customer that we have.”

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.
