Personal Care India Expo in Delhi, 22 to 24 August 2016

Conference on regulatory, global market trends

Personal Care India Expo meets the demands of personal care, cosmetic and home care ingredients, machinery and packaging industries

UBM India is organizing the second edition of Personal Care India Expo (PCIE), India’s first international trade event meeting the demands of personal care, cosmetic and home care ingredients, machinery and packaging industries. The event will be held from 22 to 24 August 2016 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. The expo has been well received by the industry at large with support from Fragrances and Flavours Association of India (FAFAI), The Indian Home and Personal Care Industry Association (IHPCIA), and Essential Oil Association of India (EOAI). Spread over three days, the PCIE is an international B2B expo for ingredients, packaging and machinery in the personal care sector. The exhibiting sectors will primarily include cosmetics ingredients, raw material and contract manufacturing, packaging and machinery, ayurveda and nutraceuticals ingredients.

The expo will feature a power-packed conference in association with CLAIMS, a clinical research organization, on regulatory, global market trends, standardization of cosmeceutical and dermaceutical products, and formulating sun care products. Other event highlights include a ‘Beauty Zone,’ a new feature in the expo that will be an exclusive B2B section with zones dedicated to end products from cosmetics and toiletries, natural health, packaging and OEM. The expo will also be marked by an Innovative Product showcase and buyer-seller meetings.

Speaking about the expo, Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India said, “The Indian personal care ingredients industry has taken rapid strides in the last few years, as more and more personal care products incorporate specialty ingredients in their formulation.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
