They are demanding advanced POP solutions which can best meet their needs of color accuracy, consistency and high quality while being affordable at the same time,” said Rohit Kapoor, executive director and CEO, Meghdoot. “Responding to these customer needs and evaluating the vast market opportunity with corrugated POP displays, we decided to install the HP Scitex Flatbed 10000 industrial press at our new plant in New Delhi.”

“The HP Scitex Flatbed 10000 industrial press offers flexibility both in terms of size and speed as well as supporting the wide variety of applications and range of media. The POP display applications, while being superior in quality, are highly affordable and apt to meet the brand’s creative needs,” Kapoor added. With the recent installation of the HP Scitex FB10000 industrial press, Meghdoot will address the need for digital production of POP graphics and corrugated display in the market which is currently challenged by analog production methods. The company will benefit by offering superior production efficiency, advanced automation, shorter runs, faster turnaround time, and serviceability for high-quality and high-volume production. With the flexibility to experiment with varied shapes and sizes, it will be easier for Meghdoot to take on more jobs, expand opportunities and increase the potential for profit.

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 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.
