The retail boom is paving way for automation in the largely old-world Indian corrugation industry. The growth of 12-15% per annum in the next five years is an expert estimation. Are we ready to handle this? Tanvi Parekh takes a closer look at what is transpiring on the ground
In the quality grading, the European machines tops the chart and the Indian machines appear at the last spot, with the Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese manufacturers in the between.
As the capacity of production upsurges with an automatic plant, the closing down of the smaller players seems inevitable. But with the 8-10% growth in the Indian industry, we are able to absorb some of the slack. The industry survives with the crossover of business between the automatic and the semi-automatic box makers
