Facts on the Conference and Indian Market

From 2015 to 2020 the turnover of the packaging industry in India is set to increase annually by 16%-18% to US$ 73 billion (Rs. 5,00,000 crore). India has a wealth of high tech talent which is developing the sector rapidly. India is the second largest producer worldwide of agricultural products, but the level of food processing is comparatively low.

Currently over 90% of basic household products are unpackaged. So much of it is wasted, but a huge increase in middle class consumers means that has to change. India’s Food and Beverage processing industry is growing at CAGR of 11% plus. India’s pharmaceuticals industry already counts among the largest in the world today. An increasing population and improved medical care provide it with an annual growth of 18% until 2020. India’s pharmaceutical exports stood at US$ 17.27 billion (Rs. 1,10,000 crore) in FY2018.

According to the domestic rating agency ICRA, the Indian logistics sector is expected to grow at a rate of 8-10% over the medium term. As per IDC’s Asia/Pacific Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, India smartphone market shipped 142.3 million units in 2018, registering 14.5% year-on-year growth compared to 2017.

At the same time, the Active and Intelligent Packaging Industry Association based in Amsterdam believes it is a good time to ‘dip it’s toe’ in the Indian market and even more so with the help of two strong, locally based partners who delivered the first PDIT conference in Mumbai.
