Labelexpo 2016 to bring the best of cutting-edge technologies

Leading Indian and international players to showcase at Labelexpo

The Indian label industry is a complex yet dynamic one, growing at a healthy rate.

The Indian label industry is a complex yet dynamic one, growing at a healthy rate. Although wet glue labels are still growing, they are making way for pressure-sensitive and flexible labels. Flexo and combination presses are also charting the growth ladder in a market otherwise largely dominated by offset.

Bringing together all this and more on a single platform is Labelexpo India 2016, which will be held from 17–20 November at the India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida, India. Aimed at package and label printers, brand owners as well as label designers, Labelexpo India 2016 will see leading Indian and international players showcasing the best of cutting-edge technologies. The event will have on display products like RFID, multi-process ink systems, label materials, wraps and sleeves.

Over 200 exhibitors are expected to turn out at the event showing a full range of machinery and materials for the label and package printing industry. The exhibitor profile will include working machinery, digital presses, laser diecutting, prepress and plate making, inline decoration systems, RFID, multi-substrate presses, high technology label materials, films, sleeves, wraps, VIP substrates and multi-process ink systems.

In addition, many press developments will be unveiled from leading manufacturers like Xeikon, Bobst, HP, Multitech, OMET, Konica Minolta, Monotec, Nilpeter, Multitech, OMET, Webtech Engineering, Xeikon and Zhongte.

The platform will serve as a meeting place for existing clients and new prospects from around the world, where leading experts can show their innovations to the decision makers of the industry.

Commenting on the event, Jade Grace, event director of Labelexpo India said, “We will be organizing a roadshow this October to give a taste of highlights for this year’s show and are delighted to be at the India Expo Centre for the first time with a refreshed and modern exhibition floor space for all to enjoy. Visitors can expect to see the latest developments and innovations set to transform the South Asian market and help improve their business productivity and profit margins. No other tradeshow offers the same close-up tech experience or is the ultimate meeting place to connect sellers, buyers and experts. We look forward to welcoming our trade visitors from across India and beyond.”

Labelexpo India is the largest label event in India and one of the world’s fastest growing label markets, attended key label printers in South Asia.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
