Algeria’s plastics, printing and packaging industry is booming, making it Africa’s and the Arab Middle East’s largest importer of plastics and packaging technology, its second largest importer of plastics in primary forms and Africa’s third largest importer of printing & paper technology.
This is why more and more international technology leaders participate at plast alger & printpack alger 2020. The 6th International Plastics, Printing and Packaging Trade Show takes place at the Centre International de Conférences Abdelatif Rahal CIC in Algiers on 9 to 11 March 2020. Founded by fairtrade in 2010, the event has been jointly organized by fairtrade and Messe Duesseldorf since 2017.
“More than 220 leading exhibitors from around the globe will participate at this year’s edition of plast & printpack alger” emphasizes Martin März, fairtrade’s founder & managing partner. “And a top-level conference on current challenges for the print and packaging sector in Algeria and the Maghreb will run alongside this major gathering.” As in 2018, more than 5,000 professional visitors from Algeria, Tunisia and neighboring countries are expected to discuss their business with the exhibitors.

plast alger 2020: Algeria is Africa’s and the Arab Middle East’s second largest importer of plastics in primary forms and its largest importer of plastics technology

Algeria importing all plastics raw materials (mainly from the Middle East, Asia and Europe), the Algerian market has an immense potential for exporters of such material. Imports of plastic raw materials grew by 10.5% annually between 2007 and 2017, from 304 kt to 828 kt. With imports of 828 kt at a value of more than two billion US$ in 2017, Algeria is the second largest importer of plastics in primary forms in Africa and the Middle East, following Egypt and ahead of Nigeria with 729 kt, the UAE with 658 kt, South Africa with 627 kt, Saudi Arabia with 625 kt and Iran with 473 kt.
