By 2021, the rise in costs has reached unprecedented levels, affecting all businesses and their suppliers throughout the printing industry. Until now, Xsys has been able to secure supply of key raw materials and access to supply networks by absorbing this cost inflation through various cost-reduction initiatives and projects and technology improvements, and other efficiency gains. 

Xsys productions costs rise with an increase in energy prices

As we enter 2022, cost inflation is continuing to be passed on by suppliers, and the impact is coming from several directions –

  • Double-digit price increases are being levied by raw material and feedstock suppliers. 
  • Energy prices have soared, resulting in a significant rise in Xsys production costs and increased costs from suppliers.
  • Transport and freight costs to customers have increased and continue to do so, which also impacts the cost of supply for raw materials.

There are currently no signs that this inflation will start retracting soon. As a result, Xsys will mitigate the impact by putting a price increase of 6% across the nyloflex product range on 1 February 2022.

“Our priority remains, as always, to offer a constant and reliable supply of products to our customers, irrespective of the current market conditions. We will naturally maintain full support with technical service and quality products during this challenging period to ensure that our customers can continue to service their customers,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president at Xsys. “In addition, Xsys will invest in more projects and high-efficiency drives designed to counter the inflation where possible.”


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
