Plexconcil anticipates a significant increase in plastic exports to the UAE, with a goal of increasing trade figures to $5 billion by 2027.

Plexconcil, a representative body of India’s plastic exporters, envisions a substantial surge in plastic exports to the UAE, aiming to escalate trade figures to $5 billion by 2027, citing India’s economic stability and superior product quality.

Strategic Presence at Arab Plast 2023:

Hemant Minocha, Chairman of Plexconcil, highlighted India’s participation in the Arab Plast 2023 exhibition in Dubai, affirming India’s commitment by presenting the largest contingent, comprising 73 exporters.

Plexconcil aims to elevate global exports of plastic products from $12 billion to $25 billion by 2027, focusing on exponential growth and leveraging India’s burgeoning potential in the plastic industry.
