As per the consensus views of majority of Exhibitors, E-commerce Boom will help paper Industry to enter new phase of growth. With the increasing number of internet users and rising middle class in the society with higher disposable income has boosted the demand for paper packaging products in the shipment industry. This seems like it will continue on spurring the growth for the same. $ 228 is the size of the Indian e-commerce market in 2030, according to Goldman Sachs estimates.  That’s still below the size of the market today in China ($328 billion) and the U.S. ($281 billion), but close to ten times as large as India’s market is today. Indian e-commerce startups received $2.6 billion in funding in the first nine months of 2015, compared to $3.1 billion in all of 2014.
Trade experts are hinting that the Industry is entering new phase of growth and Paper Packaging business will give much needed support to the Industry. The industry eco-system is changing rapidly and we as a World Largest Paper Show exhibitors proud to be a part of the Industry.
Speaking on the success of Paperex Exhibition, Mr Gagan Sahani, Director ITE India said  that there are total 500 exhibitors from over 33 countries, including group participation from China, Finland, Taiwan, France and Germany. Most of the exhibitors optimist that the Indian paper industry is resorting to farm forestry for meeting its wood requirement; however, due to the long gestation period, the paper industry in India is yet to receive its full benefits. Thus, non wood based raw materials are increasingly becoming more popular in the paper industry in India. Having mapped with paper mill water use, companies are working to develop site specific plans at priority facilities that address additional efficiencies around water reuse and potential reduction. India’s consumption for Paper will go up substantially in the medium term despite the Digital creating a lot of buzz. Right now, Per capita consumption of paper is 9.8 kilograms as compared to 350 kilograms in the US, Global average – 58 kilograms
The world’s largest paper exhibition organized by ITE India’s along with 12 trade bodies, has got tremendous response from both trade and general visitors. 12th edition of Paperex is a reliable and tested platform to all connected with paper industry including, SME exporters, entrepreneurs and investors.
All stakeholders of the industry, from paper mill owners to distributors to end consumers, were on the ground in first 3 days at Pagati Maidan in New Delhi. Paperex, the biennial international exhibition and conference on pulp and paper industry is on until 4 November
Over 15,000 trade visitors from around the globe are in New Delhi to attend the exhibition and learn about more technologies and positive eco-system.
Recent Capacity expansions are largely being funded through borrowings from external financial sources, due to which the balance sheets of paper companies have become highly leveraged, resulting in extended credit profiles. This credibility of the paper manufacturers in India is likely to continue since the full benefit of investments in capacity expansions would be realized only over the medium term.
