President Message

My Dear Members,

I wish to thank each and every member of FCBM for reposing faith in me and appointing me as the president for FCBM.

Seeing the current market scenario where all the sectors are performing low, this is the time we need to realise the power of this association in a better manner. FCBM equips us with latest technological know how in the industry with the best of training courses started by our esteemed Seminars & Workshops committee team which is headed by Shri Ram kumar Sunkara. Our level 1 course which was initiated in term of Shri Pradip Bosmaya has already flourished its wings majorly in all the regions and infact the team has even come up with further enriching level 2 course which takes the duty of FCBM of imparting education to even a higher level. I wish to see in my tenure that 100% regions should get to finish both the levels simultaneously. And we’ll make full efforts to even start with level 3 & level 4 courses in some of the regions.

As I mentioned in my speech in the AGM that I wish to kick start some programmes with respect to skill development of our labour with the help of Shri Ram Kumar Sunkara and other senior members of FCBM, so that it could deep down help each and every member of our association to stream line their production activities in a better productive manner.

I wish to see that avenues for income of FCBM should also increase whether it’s from efforts of our website team or even from the way of collaboration with associations like IPAMA, Reeds India and many more possible associations still to get associated with our esteemed Association FCBM.

Since we are about to enter in our golden jubilee year celebrations and with continual efforts put in by our membership drive committee we wish to add maximum number of new members with our association and even pursue the options to get our association connected to newer regions( states) which still have not got connected with FCBM.

In the end I would like to request all the members of FCBM to whole heartedly give their support with respect to their workings in different committees and help our association reach a greater height. We will be shortly sharing the list of Committee Chairmen and members of the new Managing Committee.

Wishing all members a VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

Warm Regards

V. K. DEWAN

President

 

Industry Overview

125 Years of the Corrugated Packaging Industry

The booming Indian economy and a flourishing organised retail have raised the expectations that consumption of corrugated packaging will begin to expand again as the number and volume of goods packaged in corrugated increases. MNCs are demanding corrugated boxes of international standards and the pattern of buying the packaging is changing.

Prices of corrugated sheet and converted boxes have remained low due to the over-capacity, manual operations and low productivity. Besides, transport constraints and high freight costs have meant that small to medium sized corrugated box plants are located near the customers.

The over 4,000 corrugated board and sheet plants are highly labour-intensive, employing over half a million people – both directly and indirectly. The industry is converting about 2 million tons of Kraft paper into corrugated boxes. Factories are spreadout in all parts of India, even in the remote industrially backward areas.

This present scenario is already being challenged by the sweeping changes that are beginning to take shape. More and more in-line automatic plants are being set up, as corrugated box makers gear up to meet the new demands for high precision boxes with attractive graphics and large integrated production capacities.

Future Trends

  • Increasing demand and high volumes will trigger consolidation and setting up of large automatic plants.
  • Inline Automatic Board and Box making plants will ease out the present semi automatic production processes.
  • Deployment of Folder Gluers, Rotary Diecutters will be on the increase.
  • Use of corrugated for display/promotional packs, POPs and dispensers.
  • Advances in multicolour, flexo printing will facilitate in-house flexo printing and do away with screen printing, contract printing on offset presses.
  • The emergence of e-commerce, reverse bidding, concept of First Pak will give large scale units the advantage of competitiveness and the concept of locating corrugated box units nearer to user locations will become obsolete.
  • Large Corporates and Bulk users of corrugated boxes looking for single/multiple alternative vendors – capable of meeting stringent specifications, offering alternative designs, test-in-time deliveries at optimum cost.
  • Growing interest in machines made in China, Taiwan and other Asian countries.
  • Many machinery manufacturers entering into alliances with Chinese, Taiwanese manufacturers for manufacturing/marketing.

Officio Members of FCBM

Dear Friends,

Another year gone. Another one beckons, I wish all of you Happy New Year. New Year always brings hope and aspirations and let us start our efforts to fulfill our hope.

First of all let me sincerely thank you for the trust you bestowed in electing me to the highest office of our Federation. My predecessors have done wonderful job. We bear witness to the enduring strength of our Fraternity in Federation.

Lot many changes are taking place everyday and very positive and a matter to boost the economy, the stable government is formed, after the lapses of several years, and addressing the need to shape up India’s industrial prominence, our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s agenda for development started with the unveil of “MAKE IN INDIA” a global phenomenon focusing on transforming the country into the world’s largest manufacturing hub.

The Make in India campaign is going to bring the packaging industry into limelight. When you “Make in India” you are going to “Pack in India”. Almost all products are being packed in corrugated Boxes. Today we continue a never ending journey to bridge the requirement of consumer by constantly innovating to keep up with changing demand as well as to stand out in increasingly competitive environment. If we update ourselves with the time, with circumstances and with new generation, having new ideas, we will have an opportunity to be more creative than ever before.

As the time has changed let us change ourselves too and pledge faithfully that we can meet any unmet demand of consumer by our innovative ideas and creations.

A number of steps have been taken by government to speed up green clearances but the government is also considering the suggestions to achieve its twin goals of economic growth and environmental protection. Save the trees, Save the planet. In order to save the trees, wooden boxes will have to be substituted by Corrugated Boxes. No doubt in most of the cases wooden boxes have already been replaced by Corrugated Boxes. But let us try to replace the same totally in the interest of balancing ecology as well as economic growth and hence it is vital that innovative ideas will only help achieve the goal.

As the “MAKE IN INDIA” campaign will trigger the manufacturing Industries, which will further trigger the consumption of packaging material this in turn will bring direct demand for techno-experts in packaging. Indian Institute of Packaging is going to start degree course is most welcome step. But the demand for qualified-technical experts cannot be met, unless- more and more academical institutions are opened up throughout the nation. Atleast all the region should organise technical sessions and educational institutes should offer the course in packaging in all regions.

E-commerce is now a booming sector in India and depends on corrugated packages, which is expected to further aid the growth in the packaging Industry. Growth of manufacturing segment in India will itself increase the need for packaging and related opportunities. There are number of companies that need packaging professionals in the country.

With the changing of time and habits of consumer we will have to think and innovate to meet consumer’s unmet needs to be successful. Incase of fruits and vegetables etc. We can definitely innovate the packaging which may help us to sell our boxes as product item instead of tailor-type item. We have already witnessed and seen the boxes of same type which can be used as product item in case of grapes, apple and mangoes packaging. It is a matter of persuasion and innovation for us to develop the boxes as product item for Lemon, Tomatoes and other variety of Vegetable & Fruits. I am more than confident and sure that our industry can and will develop such packings without fail. There are genius and innovative minds in our industry backed by the experience and highly technical seniors services at our disposal-all having welfare about the packaging industry at heart and keen to help, which has taken our Federation to such high esteemed level. So all my predecessors have offered their helping hand to me for the betterment of industry.

Even the Chairman of New Market Development- Committee Mr. Milan Dey is working very hard on all such issues-and will be happy to share the views expressed by any of our friends in FCBM. He is keen that this is the joint efforts of all the regions and all regional president has to come forward with the ideas and views for the betterment of industry. Friends let us join hands together & pave a way to tape the venues for corrugated boxes so long remaining untapped.

The team GCBMA were working day and night for the successful implementation of 43rd conference of FCBM at Udaipur in December 2014. Their admirable efficiency and warm hospitality ensure that delegates from all over India & abroad enjoyed themselves and got the most they can from the conference. The conference was filled with fellowship, fun & enrichment. I am sure those who have attended the conference carry sweet memories of the pinnacle experience at Conference in Udaipur.

To conclude I look forward to your suggestions and co-operation and support to take FCBM to further height of glory. I also seek the guidance and advise from past presidents and my seniors to steer the way to progress & glory of FCBM.

With warm Regards,

Sincerely Yours
P. S. Shah
