Curtain Raiser PAPEREX 2019

A curtain raiser of ‘Paperex 2019’, the 14th edition of the World largest international exhibition and conference of the Paper Industry was done in Chennai.  There are 59 running mills in Tamilnadu producing close to 31 Lakhs tonne per annum of Paper. Paper exports in last 3 years grew from 660,000 tonne to 15,00, 000 tonne from India. 


Paper mills are pre-dominantly set up in rural areas, provide large-scale employment and lively hoods directly and indirectly to almost 50 lakhs people, majority are from lower income group of society i.e. marginal farmers, skilled and semi-skilled workers. Keeping in view of rising pollution levels, there is a special Session with in  emphasis on environment, Green Chemistry and recycling in the B2B conference within the exhibition.


While speaking at the curtain raiser  Mr J P Narain, VP, Indian Paper & Manufacturers Association and CEO of Century Paper said, “Paper industry is going through the transformation phase and few big paper company's are doing expansion to meet their region or product or category-specific demand. Overall paper consumption is projected to increase to 24 million tonnes in 2024-25 from 15 million tonnes currently. I believe there will be a consolidation within the industry and we will see more players doing Merger & Acquistions activity to complement each other.  Since it’s a manpower driven industry the same will generate jobs both directly and indirectly. Contributing to Nation's development, India's quality paper producers serve the need for Printing, writing, packaging, publishing, notebook and stationery sectors.”
