New Printing Packaging Theme Pavilion at swop — Making Deals Face to Face with End Customers!


Nowadays in our modern society, all consumer products need packaging, and all packaging needs printing. Printing is one of the most important branding tools in product packaging, which conveys information, promotes and makes the product more attractive to purchase. High-quality package printing helps to catch the eye of consumers, convey quality information about the product and thus increase sales. In addition, technically complex package printing also plays an important anti-counterfeiting role, by making it easier for consumers to verify the authenticity of the product. The global package printing market is witnessing strong development driven by robust growth in the food, beverage, household chemical products and pharmaceutical industries. According to the Global Printing Market Prospects Research and Analysis Report 2017-2022 published by AskCI Consulting, the size of the global package printing market increased from USD 266 billion in 2012 to USD 316.1 billion in 2016, with an annual growth of 4.4 percent, and will continue to increase to USD 377.5 billion in 2021, with a compound annual growth rate of 3.5 percent from 2017 to 2021. AskCI estimates that the size of the global package printing market will reach USD 341.2 billion in 2018, a 3.9 percent year-on-year growth, which may be the same as the previous year.


With such bright prospects in the package printing market, Shanghai World of Packaging (swop), which is dedicated to building a comprehensive value chain of processing and packaging, is now taking the lead by adding a 10,000 sqm Printing Packaging Theme Pavilion at the exhibition site. swop is co-organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MDS) and Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. Messe Düsseldorf, the parent company of MDS and one of the top five trade fair organizers worldwide, has the reputation of organizing trade fairs, “Oscar” level trade fairs in printing, packaging and plastics, Some of the most prominent ones include Drupa, interpack and K Trade Fair. Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. also has over twenty years of experience in the printing, plastics and packaging industries.

The printing industry is a typical “downstream driven” industry as the orders for businesses are completely dependent on the needs of companies downstream. With the market witnessing an increasingly fierce competition, product packaging is one of the key factors for differentiating competitors’ products. As the demand for packaging design by downstream customers increase, it is of vital importance to extend high value services including packaging design and smart packaging to the downstream players, as a way of improving user loyalty and profit margins. There has also been a constantly growing demand for customization in recent years. Responding to these two megatrends, the Printing and Packaging Theme Pavilion will also designate a Packaging Design and a Packaging Customization zone to show how to better serve end customers through packaging design and customized packaging services.
