Investment in technology to boost local production, export and replace imports

According to the German mechanical engineering association VDMA, Algeria is one of the largest investors in plastics, printing and packaging technologies in Africa and the Middle East. These technological imports enable Algeria to develop and diversify its own production, increase its exports, and replace imports of consumables.

In this context, plast & printpack alger plays an important role in raising awareness among the Algerian public of environmentally friendly materials and packaging, and in familiarising the public with the circular economy.

Facts on Algeria’s rapidly growing plastics and packaging industry

  • Imports of plastic raw materials grew by 9.0% annually between 2007 and 2022, from 304 kt to over a thousand kt in 2022. Algeria is thus the second largest importer of plastics in primary forms in Africa & Middle East, following Egypt and well ahead of the UAE. (EUROMAP)
  • Algeria’s imports of plastics technology grew by 55% (!) in 2022, from €81m in 2021 to €126m. Algeria is thus the largest importer of plastics technology in the Maghreb, and together with Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa, one of Africa's largest importers of plastics technology. (VDMA)
  • With €127m in 2022, Algeria belongs to the leading importers of packaging technologyon the African continent, together with Nigeria, South Africa and Egypt. (VDMA)

Algeria invests in the production of plastics raw material and in plastics technology

Since a few years, Algeria heavily invests in the production of plastics raw materials to be able to gradually reduce such imports.

“When it comes to plastics technology” outlines Thomas Franken, Project Director K with Messe Duesseldorf, “Algeria’s investments amounted to 126 million euros in 2022. This makes Algeria the fourth largest investor in plastics technology in Africa.

Algeria's main suppliers are China, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Austria, Spain and Turkey. (VDMA)
