FCBM, a bridge between India and China: Looking Forward to the Upcoming 4-in-1 Mega Expo for the Whole Packaging Industry Chain

Wednesday, Mar 02, 2016

Reed Exhibitions, the organizer of Sino Corrugated & Sino Folding Carton, would like to congratulate the grand success of holding the 44th Annual Conference of the Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers of India (FCBM) in Cochin, and to also congratulate Mr. N.X. George as having been elected as the President of FCBM 2016.

As the world’s leading corrugated and folding carton manufacturing show, Sino Corrugated & Sino Folding Carton keep working to serve the paper packaging industry chain and provide the necessary networking platform among countries and experts. Over the years, the exhibition has remained in close cooperation with partners, especially maintaining long-term strategic cooperation with FCBM which is devoted to promoting technology and academic exchanges between China and India. In addition to being thankful for all of the support from the association management team in every session, Reed Exhibitions would also like to extend heartfelt gratitude to Mr. R. Suresh (General Secretary of FAPGA) and Mr. P.S. Sash (former President of FCBM) who play important roles between China and India in the packaging and printing industries. FCBM is not only a partner, but also a friend to the Chinese corrugated industry.

During years of deep cooperation with FCBM, we have learned that India is one of the fastest growing markets in the world, especially in manufacturing industries. In 2015, there were more than 10,000 corrugated manufacturers in India, with an output of 7,205 million square metre. In addition, there are more than 250,000 large and small printing enterprises in India with an investment of more than two billion dollars. Even more, the Indian market is still in its rapid growth period. In 2012 there were only 150 manufacturers which had auto-corrugated machines, this number rose to over 500 in 2015, a tremendous growth rate of 200%. Additionally, 85% of Indian printing enterprises are still using monochromatic or two-tone machines. With the increasing demand for four-colour printing machines, the market potential of the Indian corrugated industry remains attractive.

The 44th International Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers of India (FCBM) conference took place in Kochi from November 20 - 22. KECBMA conducted an exhibition with part of the conference at the Hotel Le-Meridian. Kochi’s water views and lush green scenery merged packaging technology with beautiful and breathtaking nature under the theme “EMPOWERING THE FUTURE.”

Seminars, packaging award evenings, buyer-seller meetings, family time, gala dinners and a host of cultural programs were highlights of the conference. It was an ideal platform to learn about trends in the packaging industry and promote the industry going forward. Reed Exhibitions, as the partner of FCBM, were pleased to participate in the conference and witness its grand success.

In 2016, Reed Exhibitions were pleased to be informed that Mr. N.X. George was elected as the President of FCBM in 2016. We congratulate him on this important news and hope Mr. N.X. George, together with FCBM, will continue to serve the local printing industry, as well as the global corrugated industry at a new height. As always, FCBM supports Sino Corrugated South 2016 & Sino Folding Carton 2016, held at the GD Modern International Exhibition Center, Houjie, Dongguan, from April 14-16, 2016. FCBM will also organize local Indian corrugated packaging enterprises to visit the show.

Let us share our best wishes to FCBM, and may FCBM continue to make outstanding contributions to the Indian corrugated industry.
