Paperex South India will take place from 23rd-25th November, 2022 in Chennai, India.

With domestic demand steadily increasing, as well as a growing manufacturing sector, rising demand for better-quality packaging from organised retail outlets and an upstream market for paper products like tissue paper, filter paper, tea bags, and lightweight online coated paper, this industry is expected to keep growing in India. The value of the print industry in India is expected to go up to almost USD 410 billion by the fiscal year 2024. The Indian packaging market is expected to reach around USD 204.81 billion by 2025, driven by the rising consumer demand for resource-efficient and eco-friendly products across various industries such as food & beverages (F&B), pharmaceuticals & healthcare products (PHC), etc., all of which are currently witnessing tremendous growth across both developed and developing economies including India.
