Neither national nor international labeling industry professionals can ignore the high growth rate of the Indian market, which is currently showing at 14-20 per cent per annum.
The opportunities for local skill development with the help of international investment and knowledge sharing are immense, according to organisers.
The India Label Show is the place where the local talent will meet the international know-how and both will find mutual benefits to their businesses.
While event organisers have reported a strong response from international exhibitors, such as Mark Andy, Gallus, Nilpeter, Gidue, Erhardt+Leimer, UPM Raflatac and Zeller+Gmelin, they say that interest from local printers and manufacturers has been equally strong.
This year's show will be boosted with a large number of working machines on-site - Nilpeter, Gallus and Rotatek will be bringing running presses to the event for the first time, and US firms, Martin Automatic and Sonic Solutions will be exhibiting for the first time.
Mühlbauer and bielomatik, suppliers of RFID technology, will be attending for the first time at India Label Show to showcase their products and the latest technical innovations.
At Labelexpo Europe in Brussels last September, bielomatik launched the RFID looptag, with which it aims to revolutionise the application of RFID tags.
The growth of the Indian label market in recent years has increased interest in such technologies.
The India Label Show will also welcome a number of East Asian suppliers - Techsun, Hangzhou Todaytec, Huzhou Unifull and WanHong Machinery are among many Chinese companies that will exhibit for the first time.
