Essentra Packaging will unveil its latest pharmaceutical packaging solutions that provide supply chain agility and sustainability benefits on stand 6B30 at CPhI worldwide in Milan between 9-11 November 2021.

Whether pharmaceutical companies are looking to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize material usage, use only FSC content and replace plastic materials, or reduce packing time and maximize machine efficiencies, Essentra Packaging’s experts will be on hand to discuss the options available. 

A complete range of eco-friendly packaging innovations will be on display, highlighting Essentra’s carton, label, and leaflet solutions that enable companies to meet their sustainability goals while also achieving high levels of patient safety and production line efficiency. The highly visual and engaging stand will be decorated with Essentra products to emphasize this connection. 

Essentra Packaging ComboPack will be on display

Solutions on display include ComboPack, which loads cartons on the packing line with secondary packaging material, such as a leaflet, already inserted, thereby maximizing speed and efficiency. Whereas increasingly, the incorporation of additional items into a folding carton is carried out manually, ComboPack inserts materials at the gluing station as an integral part of the manufacturing process. This reduces the complexity of the operation and allows production to be planned more efficiently, thus increasing overall efficiencies and security through avoidance of potential packing errors. 

In addition, the Essentra Packaging stand will highlight the key role of the company’s Innovation Hub in helping customers improve the sustainability of their packaging through advice on areas such as pack design, material selection, and manufacturing process

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
