Global suppliers of stationery and office suppliers target emerging Middle East and African markets

Leading international brands turn to Paperworld Middle East 2017 to boost regional exports

Dubai, UAE, 15 January 2017:  International suppliers of stationery and office supplies are turning to the Middle East and Africa (MEA) for future business growth, with the UAE presenting itself as the ideal gateway to access hard-to-reach markets.

Growth in the global stationery and office supplies market is expected to come from emerging markets such as the MEA.   Analysts TechNavio forecast an annual market increase in the region of 15 per cent, while Conlumino, another analyst, estimate the MEA market for paper, stationery and office supplies, will be worth US$12 billion by 2019.

While some suppliers are now just testing the waters, others have been in the market for many years.  Vienna Office Supplies (VOS) for example, has been exporting high-end stationery, office products, school supplies and artists' materials to the Middle East for the last 30 years.

The Austrian-headquartered company is entirely export-oriented, with the Middle East comprising 75 per cent of its market.  VOS represents on an exclusive basis eight European brands, such as Schneider Writing Instruments, Cretacolor artist supplies, and SAX office accessories.

VOS will be eager to increase its presence further when it lines up alongside more than 300 exhibitors from 36 countries at Paperworld Middle East 2017, which takes place from 14-16 March at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Karl Vytiska, the Managing Director of VOS, said the company has built up its presence in the region based on long-term relationships, including ones established at Paperworld Middle East.

"VOS began exhibiting at Paperworld Middle East since its first edition seven years ago, and it's where we first tied up with Dubai Library Distributors as our local partner," said Vytiska.  "Over the years, we have placed increased emphasis on exhibiting at the show, as it helps us reach over 95 per cent of our clientele.

"Our capital is knowing the market through the people with whom we are dealing with for more than one generation in some cases. This personal contact is very important here in the Middle East, more important certainly than other markets."

He added: "We keep our fires burning with our old clients and traditional networks in the Middle East, but there are always changes in the market, whereby distributors, wholesalers, and importers come and go.  It's important to meet the new-comers in the field, and to that end, Paperworld Middle East is very important for us."

In its 7th edition in 2017, Paperworld Middle East is the region's largest B2B trade show covering the entire range of stationery and office supplies, from school and gift articles, office or household paper, arts and crafts, and party and festival articles, to printers and multimedia.

The strong European presence will be complemented by exhibitors coming from the UK, Portugal, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy, with household stationery names such as Lamy and Olympia taking part.  Other key exporting exhibitor countries include China, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, Japan, and Turkey.

Portuguese companies on-board include The Navigator Company, Olmar, Bi-Silque, DKT, and Olmer, which exports its range of Fegol office supplies and Pajory school supplies to over 25 countries.

"Over the last three years we've increased our sales in the Middle East by over 45 per cent, which reflects the compatibility of our products with the region," said Joao Oliveira, the CEO of Olmer. "We've created very good partnerships with distributors that we've established through Paperworld Middle East."

Meanwhile, Zebra, a Japanese maker of writing instruments, will also return, and will eagerly look to increase its footprint in the African market with its range of gel tip pens and mechanical pencils.

"We've been present in the Middle East now for more than 20 years through our distributors and so we're looking out for other markets to develop, specifically Africa," said Terry Miyata, General Manager of Zebra, which posts US$25 million in global sales every year.

"We've had strong leads from Ghana, Kenya, and Ethiopia that were actually through Paperworld Middle East.  Our export market is about 40 per cent of our annual turnover, so we're looking to increase this through Africa, while also strengthening our position in the Middle East."

The countdown to the 7th edition of Paperworld Middle East comes following a record turnout of exhibitors and visitors at the previous edition in 2016, firmly cementing its position as the must-attend trade show for the regional paper, office supplies, and stationery industries.

The 2016 edition  attracted 6,774 visitors from 101 countries, 11 per cent up on the previous year, while 304 exhibitors from 36 countries showcased their latest wares, from office supplies, paper, school, party and gift articles, to toys, games, wrapping paper, printer consumables, and arts and craft supplies.

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Paperworld Middle East, said: "Shifting tides in international trade and economic uncertainty over the last 12 months has meant global manufacturers have had to refocus their export outlook, and the MEA is grabbing their attention.

"Paperworld Middle East provides unmatched access to market representatives from the fast-growing Middle East, Africa, Central and South Asia regions, and has seen increasing numbers of leading international brands and players participating from across the world."

 Paperworld Middle East 2017 will return with popular features including the Green Office Area, where the spotlight will shine on sustainably produced essential office supplies; and the Wrapstar gift wrapping competition.  More information is available at:

New product development stimulates market growth for PET packaging, according to Smithers P

 Surrey, UK – March 15, 2016 – Smithers Pira publishes new report, The Future of PET Packaging to 2021, which provides market volume and value data by end-use markets and by geographic region/country for the PET packaging market.

In 2015, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) packaging amounted to just under 16.7 million tonnes, representing a 3.8% increase on 2014 levels. Going into 2016, growth is projected to reach 4.8%, amounting to 17.5 million tonnes.

A strong level of new product developments into under-developed markets such as preserved foods, thermoforming, fruit juice and other functional beverages, are projected to boost the market going forward. In addition, further falls in PET resin prices are also projected to benefit the market.

 Over the next five years, the PET packaging market is forecast to reach 21.1 million tonnes in 2021, registering an average growth rate of 3.8% per annum during the period 2016-21.

"Despite various economic issues in recent years, growth in PET packaging has remained relatively consistent," said Paul Boyce, author of the report.

 "Stronger growth is projected in 2016, with PET gaining traction into relatively new sectors, alongside stronger growth in its core market of bottled water."

Eastern Europe is forecast to show strong growth following recent political and economic difficulties, particularly in the region
's largest market of Russia. Elsewhere, Western Europe is also forecast for stronger growth as it picks up much of what was lost during the 2012 European crisis, whereby investment had largely been put on hold.

Some of the key trends in the market include continued lightweighting. Whilst bottles have seen continued gains in lightweighting over many years, it has continued to gain traction with some manufacturers reaching less than 8g for a 500ml PET water bottle. It is arguable that with such a lightweight product it is unviable to invest in further lightweighting in this area. This may be the case, with some manufacturers concentrating on product stability alongside lightweighting, to find the perfect equilibrium.

Lightweighting has had a negative impact on volume growth of PET packaging in recent years, although growth has still been relatively strong at 4.0% per annum over the period 2011-15.

There seems to be a focus toward bio-based materials for the production of PET bottles for the large corporations within the refreshments market, this is to help increase the sustainability of the products and to help decrease waste.
However, bio-based materials are still not as widely produced and are largely expensive due to the lack of supply.

The Future of PET Packaging to 2021 is based on an extensive programme of primary research including interviews with PET resin suppliers, processors, equipment manufacturers and end users, conversations and correspondence with regulatory and standards bodies, technologists, suppliers and end users. Secondary research into patents, conference papers, specialist journals and Smithers Pira's

SinoCorrugated South 2016 Directs You to the Smart Factory

According to Active and Intelligent Packaging Research, published by the well-known marketing research agency Freedonia, the value of the intelligent packaging market in United States will reach 3.5 billion dollars in 2017. In the next three years, the compound annual growth rate will be around 8%. The direction of future development is that packaging machinery will be integrated, efficient, and with intelligent reform. A modern and intelligent factory is able to predict in the early stage, monitor in the mid-term, and continuously improve the whole process and innovation. As the pioneer of intelligence, this will usher in new opportunities for development.

SinoCorrugated South 2016 will be held at Guangdong Modern International Exhibition Center, Houjie Town, Dongguan, on April 14th - 16th. Onsite, many well-known manufacturers will demonstrate logistics transportation, stacking, ground logistics, factory, intelligent equipment and other modern technologies and equipment. Through a series of intelligent devices, packaging enterprises have made further breakthroughs to enhance automation, smart logistics, warehousing, management and production. Let us reveal some of the following outstanding intelligent devices.

Innovative Production to Create an Efficient Green Corrugated Paper Cutting Machine

In order to meet the requirements of the intelligent manufacturing factory, the workers need to realize there is a high degree of automation and intelligence at every stage of production. For example, corrugated paper cutting machines can help customers quickly and conveniently resolve such problems as base paper welt, base paper damaged head, base paper width modification, base paper wet head and other problems. The equipment adopts the whole roll cutting method, making the cutting end surface flat as new; solving the low efficiency of the past traditional complex rewinding machine that had high consumption and easy-broken paper.

At SinoCorrugated South 2016, you will see the newly developed fifth generation corrugated paper cutting machine exhibited by KUNSHAN YINGSHUDA PACKAGING MACHINERY CO., LTD. The machine can cut a roll of base paper in a diameter of 1.3 m and unlimited width. Regardless of water damage, damage, modified width and other problems, the cutting process can all be accomplished in 3-5 minutes. The paper surface is smoothly new and the paper contact is the same as the original one - saving time, energy and labor costs. Its dimension is so precise that the errors are within 2mm with easy operation that can be operated by only one person. The cutting consumption is low, or zero, especially under the wet and damage head condition. While the cutting consumption to modify the width is within 10mm, and the weight is within 8kg or so. In addition, the new corrugated cutting machine has the highest degree of automation, is environmentally friendly, and the paper recycling is up to 95%.

Increasingly Precise Paper Edge Processing Machines

For the high labor costs of domestic production and low efficiency, transportation intelligence is needed to reduce labor costs and labor intensity. Paper edge handling equipment can help you to resolve these problems. Dongguan QuanSheng Machinery Company will demonstrate the module belt conveyors, matching smashing paper recycling equipment (paper-processing equipment). The system is the module belt conveyors in logistics engineering and its role is to transfer the finished cardboard on the cardboard production line basket through the module belt conveyors, automatic transfer vehicle, and turn transferring devices and other devices to transmit automatically to a specific printing location or warehouse. Through this automatic logistics system, the machine is able to reduce labor costs and labor intensity.




Module Belt Conveyors

Innovative and Environmentally Friendly Fully Automatic Horizontal Baler

The cost of the corrugated box is rising continuously. The market competition is becoming increasingly fierce, and energy prices continue to rise. Therefore, the fully automatic horizontal balers, achieving fully automatic and unmanned operation, can allow production enterprises improve production efficiency and save labor costs considerably. In this exhibition, Guangzhou Global Green launches the automatic horizontal strapping machine, which contains an innovative and green idea, especially suited for customers with high production efficiency demands. This machine, automatically feeds, bales, and bundles under the control of PLC systems. It has passed the European CE safety certification, so the product is safe and reliable. The equipment is suitable for baling waste paper, cardboard, plastic films, corrugated boxes and palm fiber. The baling density and size can be designed according to customer requirements.



Fully Automatic Horizontal Baler


The equipment gathers numerous advantages at the same time. The feed can be directly connected to a conveyor belt, applying to the wasted corrugated boxes, plastics, clothes, large wasted treatment plants and other places. The unique baling device has a simple structure, stable function, low failure rate and is easy to maintain, but also helps improve the speed of the device. In addition, international standards of circuit layout, diagram of operation and marked detailed parts allow operators to easily master its use and improve the equipment maintenance efficiency. Its free baling length, accurate baling record and other designs fully embody the harmonious man-machine concept, which brings great convenience to operation. Using the PLC system, the equipment fully realizes automatic and unmanned operation, which will improve production efficiency and save labor costs.

 New Revolution of Science and Technology Towards Robots

A new round of technological revolution has quietly expanded that will trigger a new round of revolution in industrial. As enterprises begin to focus on packaging equipment and the supporting packaging material research, design, manufacturing, installing and technology service, Hangzhou Young Sun Pack will bring the independent development of the automatic aligning box packaging line and robotic stacking equipment, which will reduce manual single pieces strapping to save labor costs. Stacking neatly will save space and fully improve operating efficiency. In addition, the equipment can meet different customer needs with tailor-made programs. And the different sizes of production speeds of different equipment configurations meet all customer needs as much as possible.

Intelligence is the direction of future development in manufacturing automation, and its large-scale application in the manufacturing industry has already increasingly emerged. Smart factories require a clear sales process, improved controllability during the production process, reduced manual intervention in the processing line, and timely collection of line data that make the production plan and schedule more reasonable and smooth.

High Quality Baling Equipment, All in SinoCorrugated South

Baling equipment is generally divided into two types: fully automatic and semi-automatic. The structure of a semi-automatic strapping machine is relatively simple, low cost, with more popularization and application in the market. Fully automatic baling machines can be used with the general line, integrated machine main advantages of the mainstream models and advanced technology. According to the actual situation of the domestic industry market of the advanced electric control system to replace the traditional relay control, this makes the fully automatic strapping machine not only simple to control, but also the performance is more reliable, so this strapping machine priced is slightly higher.

However, as production costs rise in the corrugated box industry, market competition is becoming increasingly fierce; recruitment difficulties, labor shortages, rising energy prices, and people's awareness of environmental protection continues to increase.
