With two months to go, PackPlus 2019 records 90% bookings

The market size of India’s packaging industry is expected to touch USD 72.6-billion by FY2020 on account of rising population and income levels. The growth is driven primarily by pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages. About 45% of the packaging machinery and materials produced is absorbed by the food processing sector alone, 25% by the pharmaceuticals sector, and 10% each by the personal products, tea and coffee, and industrial products industries. These optimistic figures open up various new opportunities for the industry.
