Mumbai-based Kunal Enterprises endorsed its new alliance with Toppan Printing,
Japan and showcased their assortment of products including the EP-Pak at Pamex
2015. Kunal Gandhi, executive to president, Kunal Enterprises, said, “The EP-Pak is a seven-layer paper liquid container with film barrier for a long life of products. With its outstanding content preservation properties, EP-Pak enables long-term storage at room temperature. Full-surface printing enhances the look of the pack. The distinguishing feature of the seven-layer film is that it is without an aluminium foil. Hence, it is easy to dispose
and even metal detectors can be used on production lines to check for foreign objects inside the pack.
Kunal Enterprises is a one-stop solution for press and prepress solutions in screen printing and offset printing. The company also showcased Sakurai’s fully automatic cylinder, flatbed and roll-to-roll cylinder screen printing machine through illustrations for printing of applications like electronics and industrial labels. “Various applications can be done by a
Sakurai machine as a value addition to commercial, packaging and publishing printers to get amazing effects with the help of UV including 3D effects with optically clear varnish and glitter UV among others,” said Gandhi. Speciality screen inks, 3Dsoftware and lenticular lens for printing, 3D solutions and 3D effects by micro array dots lens sheets for flexible circuits, membrane switches and RFID were other products displayed at the company stand.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
