Indore-based PrimePackindia has imported packaging machines and materials for small-scale industries and SMEs from China for over a decade. It supplies packaging machines required for pesticides, food, and stationery in India. These include form, filling and sealing, pasting, and labeling machines.

At the recently concluded PackPlus, the company displayed labeling, box strapping, smart inkjet printers, granule fillers, form filling and sealing, conveyors, and shrink tunnels machines. After importing the machines from China, it configures them according to the Indian customers’ needs. “We import and order the machines from China to develop the products as per the Indian requirement so that the machines can be used effectively and efficiently,” said Mehul Thakkar, director of PrimePackindia.

He added, “In comparison to the Indian market, China has enough volume to feed the world’s factories. It has automatization and quality, and still, Indians lag in these. Indians used to bring the lower category machines and faced problems. We are configuring the equipment as per requirements that may not exactly be to the US requirement, but as India has its standards we customize the machine so that it can be easily accepted in the market.”

On the expansion of the company’s activities, Thakkar stated, “We are firstly and slowly planning to open new offices in major cities of India. Additionally, we have bought 27,000 square feet of property in our city that we aim to use to build manufacturing facilities to assemble some of the products over here soon. Also, we are here in the PackPlus exhibition to improve our sales and build relationships and connections with new customers.”


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.
