Capital Graphics is an Indian distributor of highly specialized equipment and consumables that are used by leading digital and flexo printers, diemakers and packaging converters and supplied by its principals such as Cito, Cutlite, Ecosystems, Hunkeler and Tresu. Among its principals are the Switzerland-based Hunkeler which provides the unwinds and rewinds forthe majority of webfed digital presses around the world as well as modules that intelligently process the machine readable marks on digitally printed documents and webs for perforation, folding, authenticating, slitting and sheeting aswell as collating and binding. Hunkeler equipment is already installed on the several webfed digital presses in the country that are being used to print books, transactional and mail order documents. Patrick Lehman based in Hunkeler’s Hong Kong office and who is quite familiar to digital printers across India and Asia was at the Capital Graphics stand at Pamex. Roberto Croci of Cito was at the show as well.

Also present at the show was Liliana Carzaniga of Ecosystem, the Italy-based supplier of a variety of coating and laminating systems for high quality consumer and luxury packaging. Ecosystem sets the high speed benchmarks for the packaging industry with machines that amongst other functions, provides the efficient lamination of metallized polyester on board with the optimum use of consumables and minimum defects and artefacts. ITC’s packaging division near Chennai has already installed an Ecosystem laminator running at 125 metres a minute.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
