The Breakthrough: A Comprehensive 4-in-1 Expo
Together with the concurrent 25th China International Exhibition on Packaging Machinery & Materials (Sino-Pack 2018) and the China (Guangzhou) International Exhibition on Packaging Products (PACKINNO 2018), Printing South China and Sino-Label will create a 4-in-1 Expo as well as a unique one-stop trading platform that covers printing, labeling, packaging and packaging products, making it a not to be missed event for print-to-pack industries and FMCG manufacturers. The expanded show will have an exhibition area of 100,000 sqm across 10 halls and is expected to attract over 1,200 quality exhibitors from local and aboard.
Smart Packaging Printing Prepares for the Future
A packaging printing research points out that due to the emerging food, beverages, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, the global packaging printing market will grow from USD 342.48 billion in 2016 to USD 574.47 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.3%. Seeing the increasing demand for product differentiation and keen competition, Printing South China 2018 will host the “Post-Press and Packaging Converting” hall for automatic and advanced equipment and solutions, so industry players could gain more insights on how to apply the idea of “Industry 4.0” better. To meet the industry needs on economic and green production, the show will also set up a “Green Flexo Printing Zone”. All these will help industry players with business optimization and move on to efficient, smart and green manufacturing.
Digital, Green and Efficient, Lead the Way for Labeling Industry
Among packaging printing, the labels segment has the largest market share as labels have the widest application. A research shows Asia has the world’s largest label market, accounting for more than 40% of the global share in 2016, and the global label market is growing at a rate of 5.4% per year from 2016 to reach a value of USD 44.8 billion by 2021. To help enterprises grasp such a golden market opportunity, Sino-Label 2018 will gather more than 300 label enterprises and bring together numerous new technologies and development concepts, creating a comprehensive display of the latest labels and applications. In addition to the well-praised Digital Label Machinery Zone and In-mold Label Display Zone, the 2018 exhibition will also feature label printing materials and RFID.
