The Indian packaging industry constitutes about 4% of the global market. The per capita packaging consumption in India is quite low at 8.7 kg compared to countries like Germany and Taiwan where it is 42 kg and 19 kg, respectively. As the requirement for packaging grows across sectors with traditional businesses preferring to package products, and the retail and eCommerce growing rapidly, the sector is also growing at a robust pace. The industry presents potential growth opportunities for new entrepreneurs, and small and medium enterprises. Amid the sanguine scenario, PackPlus provides a business and networking platform for the presentation and promotion of innovative technologies.
PackPlus, with more than 300 exhibitors already signed up for the July event, will feature companies like Any Graphics (P) Ltd., Bericap India, Bizerba India, Brothers Pharmamach (India), Clearpack Automation, Hubergroup India, Intergraphic Sales & Services, Ishida India, Jay Instruments & Systems, Modtech Machines, Nichrome India, Parakh Agro Industries, S.S.P Packaging Industries, and Uflex Limited – Engineering Division .
