Indonesian Special: Indoplas, Indopack and Indoprint 2018
The Indonesian International Plastics, Processing, Packaging and Printing Exhibition will take place 19 – 22 Sep 2018 at JI Expo, Jakarta.
The event will feature many renowned local and international exhibitors with a robust showcase of new technologies, multi-function equipment and high quality energy-efficient machineries that cater to the respective industries.
Indoplas, Indopack (incorporating Indoprocess) and Indoprint will provide a one-stop business platform to serve the entire end-to-end supply chain for the relevant industries. Complementing the all-inclusive September showcase are numerous on-floor activities including live product demonstrations of cutting-edge technologies, and a stellar line-up of industry specific conferences and seminars by leading companies and trade associations.
A joint collaboration between Messe Düsseldorf Asia (MDA) and partner PT. Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (Wakeni), the three-in-one exhibition is modelled after the expertise of three top global trade fairs in plastics, packaging and printing: K, interpack and drupa, organised by Messe Düsseldorf, Germany.
Indoplas, Indopack and Indoprint is supported by the Kementerian Perindustrian (Ministry of Industry) Republic of Indonesia, Indonesia Chamber of Commerce and a range of specialist trade associations.
Plastics, packaging and printing in Indonesia
- The plastics sector
Indonesia has a huge demand for plastics. The country imports more than 40% of its plastics requirements. Its plastics industry is also expected to benefit from an annual turnover rate of 11% on average through to 2018, where plastics sales is predicted to increase to 7 million tonnes.
- The packaging sector
With Indonesia’s growing middle class and expanding ageing population, demand for healthcare services and pharmaceuticals are on the rise, increasing the nation’s need for pharmaceutical packaging. Growth of automotive and construction industries in Indonesia is also expected to drive the regional growth for packaging over the next six years.
- The printing sector
The 2018 value forecast for Asia Pacific’s print industry is close to USD 427.5 billion. In line with this, the turnover of Indonesia’s print industry is projected to see an increase of 6% CAGR over the next three years. As the fourth highest populated country in the world with more than 253 million people, Indonesia will be the ideal place to enter the lucrative market in Southeast Asia.
