Honours in the world of Indian plastics

Talks for mutual cooperation

The brightest minds and innovators from the world of plastics will be honoured at the 7th Plasticon Awards 2015 to be held on 5 February

The world of plastics is arriving in India for Plastindia 2015. Those who are making a difference in plastics across the globe will step under one roof, to meet, visit, browse and exchange ideas at Asia’s largest convention for plastics. Stands will abound and so will opportunities at this mega event. And on the same stage, the brightest minds and innovators from the world of plastics will be honoured at the 7th Plasticon Awards 2015 to be held on 5 February.

The awards have been instituted by the Plastindia Foundation to honour innovation and excellence in the world of plastics. Over the years, the foundation has recognized those who have made a mark in the plastics sector with their foresight, skill and performance. These awards encompass every aspect of the world of plastics, from research to academia, from significant contributors to the plastic industry to brand new eco-friendly initiatives ,from crowning the fastest growing organizations to recognizing the future of the plastic industry – students with potential and aptitude.

These awards are sponsored by legends and pioneers from the plastics fraternity. There is an eminent panel of stalwarts from this discipline handpicked to choose the winners. The jury too has been selected – it comprises well-known names of the plastics fraternity. This time, at the seventh edition, there are 25 categories. This includes three new categories for Indian participants and four for international ones. As of now, the process of picking shortlisted participants is still on and will continue until 30 December 2014.

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.
