Novexx shows packaging solutions range

Automation is the key to growth

The Novexx team at Labelexpo India 2018

Novexx Solutions, once a business unit of Avery Dennison, went independent on 1 July 2015 backed by the internationally active Possehl Group. The company has come to Labelexpo India 2018 with the long term plan of educating the market about its solutions. The packaging machines manufactured by Novexx are used in primary, secondary and tertiary levels of packaging.

At the event, the company is showcasing live demo sessions of its bottle labeling machine, carton packaging, print and apply machines and other small products. Novexx recently launched the ALS 272 high-speed label printing machine, which is also being showcased to the customers at the event. The company has already sold a few of the newly launched presses to some of the big bottle manufacturing companies in the country.

Automation being the key to growth these days, systematic utilization of hardware and software automation helps increase productivity, safety and profitability. “In automation, the growth average scales between 28% and 32%. The main reason behind this is that initially companies were using wet glues but now, everyone wants to have a brand which looks appealing on the shelf and in order to attain it, manual interventions need to be eliminated completely. That said, one cannot deny the fact that the growth in the organized sector is still not more than 15% from the automation point of view,” says Sajan Abraham, general manager – South Asia, Novexx Solutions.

“I personally feel that the Indian market is growing faster in comparison to the overseas market. I am responsible for South Asia. When I see the growth range, the Indian market is growing much more in automation. I feel automation has penetrated a lot in the West and the scope for further growth has become more or less stagnated. On the other hand, automation in packaging is still in the process of being adopted in India and hence there is a huge scope for growth here.”

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.
