The scope of Bobst solutions for the different segments of the label industry is very comprehensive, from narrow- to very-wide web, and offering a host of printing and converting options. Depending on their market segment, visitors to the Bobst stand will find information on the latest technology innovations and dedicated solutions appropriate to them.

Bobst presses in the narrow- and mid-web flexo and multi-process inline range of solutions for labels deliver profitable production and superior quality across a wide spectrum of applications, including liner-less labels, PS labels, wet-glue labels, in-mold labels, wrap-around labels, sleeves and coupons. The M4 line is an efficient press for printing a variety of applications. The press delivers new standards of precision in servo control, providing stability and perfect register quality and consistency at all speeds.

The advantages of the Bobst Digital Flexo process will be explained by the Bobst specialists on the stand. When fitted on Bobst narrow- and mid-web inline flexo presses, the system enables users to digitize all their press operations, delivering on the one hand the assurance of packaging color consistency through the use of the REVO Extended Color gamut, and on the other a highly efficient, hence profitable, production flow with automatic job changeovers and up to 95% press run time.

Other Bobst solutions that Labelexpo India visitors will be able to discuss with Bobst experts include the brand new MW CI flexo and the CL 750 – SL 750 compact laminating solutions, which are especially effective for mid- to wide-web short run production, as well as the range of wide web gravure printing presses, coating lines and vacuum metallizers suitable for a great variety of applications in the label manufacturing industry.

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 grown 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!
