8th Edition of Plastivision promises to be bigger
The plastics industry in India has grown significantly in the last two decades. Various overseas players wish to explore the Indian market and invest in opportunities thrown open by the country, projected to be world number 3 in plastics consumption by 2015. To meet the ever-increasing demand, there is a growing need for products made from plastics to cater to the wide ranging requirements of various sectors such as agriculture, automobiles, building & construction, processed foods, consumer durables, pipes & conduits for water management, gas distribution, electrical and healthcare. Taking a note of this growth, The All India Plastics Manufactures’ Association (AIPMA), is proud to announce the 8th Plastivision India 2011 (PVI 2011), one of the largest exhibitions for the plastics industry, offering opportunities for market leaders to explore this booming market by providing an ideal networking platform for both manufacturers and visitors. Starting from January 20th 2011 to January 24th 2011 the exhibition is being held at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon.
Talking about the exhibition, Yogesh Shah, President, AIPMA, says “Today, we are living in a plastic age. We at no given point of time, can live without plastics hence it is extremely important to know how to use and where to use it. Considering these two aspects, namely the growing sector and the environment concern or rather the myths related to Plastics, we at Plastivision 2011 have incorporated the relevant discussions through Green Pavilion.”
On the same lines Arvind Mehta Chairman, National Advisory Board, Plastivision India 2011, continues, “Plastivision is one of the top 10 exhibitions for the plastics industry across the world and is at number 2 in India. It gives us a great exposure and opportunity to get in touch with our target audiences and highlight the importance of Plastic Industry in India and across the globe. Today, Indian Plastic Industry’s per capita consumption is 8 kgs which has been a long journey from past 40 years when the per capita consumption was just 1kg. But now it is said to double in next 5 years to 16 kgs which will require 45000 crores as an investment by the plastic processing industry. It is important that we make the investors and the visitors understand the huge potentials of this burgeoning plastic industry”.
Ajay Desai, Chairman, Plastivision India 2011, asserts, “We have made an attempt to ensure participation of all sectors of industry to provide visitors with spectrum of exhibitors and better business options.” Plastivision 2011 will witness more than 300 focused foreign delegates especially from Middle East, North Africa, South Africa, and Asian Countries for Buying, Selling, Joint Ventures, Collaborations, Dealers, and Agents etc. Around 1000 Exhibitors including 160 exhibitors spread in 5 halls from 17 countries will showcase their product and innovations in PVI 2011.

This year at Plastivision 2011, there is two dedicated pavilions the Green Pavilion that will focus on conserving energy and reusing waste.
A dedicated pavilion earmarked for various applications of plastics is the brainchild of AIPMA to enable manufacturers to showcase various plastic products used in the field of agriculture, eg plastic pipes in sprinkler irrigation systems, plastic films in green houses, plastic nets in horticulture, heavy duty flexible membrane lines for canal lining that prevents water seepage. In addition, this pavilion will also exhibit a range of automobile plastic-moulded components used in automobile industry. It will also feature consumer products such as houseware, thermoware, toys, sporting goods, parts & components of fridges and washing machines.
In present times, the effective management of waste is gaining prominence and a cause for concern as well as it directly affects all households, corporations and public authorities. Disposal methods are becoming increasingly costlier with a decrease in landfill space. The Green Pavilion is expected to demonstrate and educate the general public about environmental issues. People will learn about improving the environment through ‘reuse of waste’. Plastivision India 2011 is expected to team up with local manufacturers to educate people on ‘reusing waste’. Plastivision India 2011 will also be working with NGOs and municipal bodies to ensure that information and knowledge about ‘reusing waste’ is spread across the country. A special attraction at the Green Pavilion will showcase Live demo of recycling, Plastics in agriculture, Role of plastics in Environment, How plastics save environment and Plastics for greener and safer world.
In addition to these, there is also a dedicated pavilion for raw materials, polymers & resins, additives and colorants manufacturers.
