Avery Dennison’s India leadership team

On 22 March, Avery Dennison India celebrated it’s 20th year of business in India. The company started its first plant in Gurgaon in 1997. Pankaj Bhardwaj, senior director and general manager for label and graphic materials in South Asia, Avery Dennison, said, “We are thankful to our customers, supply partners and all the ecosystem stake holders for extending their support in making us the most preferred label and graphic materials manufacturers in the region. We have strong conviction in long term potential of the industry and hence have always invested ahead of time. We remain committed to expand the market, develop fit for market solutions and render excellence in servicing, in years to come.”

Avery Dennison has always been instrumental in constantly value adding to the industry through imparting knowledge and nurturing skills of industry talent through their Knowledge Centre based in Bangalore. At the same time, it also addressed the changing needs of the industry over the years through developing innovative solutions at their research facility located in Pune.

With the advent of its operations in Indian label industry, Avery Dennison accelerated the evolution of overall industry standards by upscaling talent through divergent thinking. This not only uplifted the market but also ignited a trend in the industry which was later followed by other global players as well.

As an organization, Avery Dennison works with an outlook of being both inwardly and outwardly progressive. Inwardly, by giving its employees an environment which is more conducive to learning and career development and outwardly, focusing on customer value add and working towards skill development through various initiatives in the market. Avery Dennison India is committed towards making the industry much more progressive going forward in future too. To make this vision a reality, it also partners with its customers in order to make their processes more efficient and minimize their wastage and other such issues.

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.
