Shifting focus to the present day, ‘Plastivision India’ has metamorphosized into the largest plastics trade exhibition and the 12th edition will be bigger than ever before. Bringing together stakeholders from the different echelons of the domestic and international plastics industry, ‘Plastivision India 2023’ has been built around the ‘circular economy’ theme and will introduce visitors to sustainable practices, materials and technologies that should enhance the industry’s green credentials. It is also India’s largest plastics-focused platform bringing buyers and sellers together, with a number of live product launches, seminars, conferences and consultation sessions enhancing the value proposition for exhibitors and visitors alike. We are confident that ‘Plastivision India 2023’ will encourage Indian firms and entrepreneurs to innovate new products, processes and technologies that can establish India as the global hub for plastics manufacturing in the foreseeable future.”
Mr. Prabh Das, MD and CEO, HPCL- Mittal Energy Ltd., and the Chief Guest at the inauguration of AIPMA’s 12th edition of Plastivision India 2023 said, “Plastivision India 2023 marks a significant milestone in the growth of the plastics industry in India. AIPMA was founded in the year 1945 and we are proud to be associated with such prestigious association. The association is proud to have 22,000 members & 4 million people who have been working in this esteemed association. I would like to address that even though there are multiple challenges faced by the plastic industry, there is a huge potential. Today we see that India has grown at 6% where the total consumption of polymer polypropylene is 12 trillion tonnes. The Govt of India and various large corporates such as Reliance Industries, IOCL and HPCL Mittal Energy Ltd have been working jointly towards import substitution as we need to address the core concern of 37,000 crore polymer which is being imported. All in all the whole industry has a bright future and a great potential ahead. The 12th Editon Plastivision India 2023 will be showcasing new manufacturing methods, recycling pavilions, consultant clinics, job & career fairs, and medical pavilions. I look forward to witnessing the transformation of the plastics industry in India and playing a role in shaping its future.”
