The Indian packaging industry has not only grown in size and volume, but also in its level of operation. In addition, globalisation has also forced the Indian packaging industry to become more competitive in the global markets and also to win major contracts abroad. Today, the Indian packaging industry is growing at an annual rate of 15% as against 5-6% growth of the global packaging industry. This has also created a great demand for packaging professionals by the Indian packaging industry. In fact, packaging training and education have become the ‘Need of the Hour’ in our country so as to upgrade the overall standards of packaging at the National level.
