One of the areas where more attention may be focused is bio-degradable plastics.

At Plastivision India 2013, premium trade fair organized by AIPMA, the Plastics industry is set to achieve great impetus. Concentrated efforts of the AIPMA are set to fasten the growth rate of plastic consumption to 20 million tonnes a year from the current 8 million tonnes a year in India. This 5-day event would provide an opportunity to all stake holders to view into the kaleidoscope of growth prospects of Plastic Industry. The 9th Plastivision India 2013 would consist of unique features that highlight the support received by the industry this time around. With dedicated pavilions like Indiamold, Plastiworld, Plastics In Agriculture, Automation & Robotics in Plastics Pavilion, Green Pavilion, Solar Energy Pavilion and Plastics in Medical Pavilion.

Speaking on the relevance of Plastivision India 2013 Mr. Anand Oza, President – AIPMA said “"Plastics is one of the biggest contributor to India’s GDP with the growth rate of 12%-15% per annum, it houses over 50,000 manufacturers and employees of over 40 lakh workers in the plastics industry. Apart from covering the plastic industry comprehensively at Plastivision India 2013, our aim is to highlight the demands with the government and motivate policy changes that better the growth of the industry. We appeal for Technology Upgradation Fund (TUF) like status for the plastic industry from the government”.

He further added that AIPMA has also appealed to the government for special Plastic Parks across India that would help the industry to flourish more; AIPMA envisages a additional investment of Rs.25000 Crs including SMEs which will help the Industry in a big way. Currently plastic parks are taking shape in Northern India at Panipat Haryana and north Rajasthan, Gujarat at Dahej and Sanand, Karnataka at Narasapura Industrial Area, Harohalli, and Kerala.”

Commenting on Plastivision India 2013, Raju Desai, Chairman of Plastivision India 2013 said “With per capita consumption of plastics expected to grow rapidly to 20 kgs by 2020 from the current 8 kgs, the processing industry is looking at growth to cater to the increasing demand from across India. We would like to contribute our share to the society and propagate that plastic is not bad, but it is waste management that needs to be paid attention to. Hence, we have also undertaken several initiatives nationally for recycling of plastics. Indeed, at Plastivision India 2013, we would be demonstrating successfully that usage of plastics is actually taking a load off our precious non-renewable resources and help the environment".

He further added “initiatives like Plasticulture is a special campaign wherein the industry is working closely with farmers to use plastics for enhancing farm productivity. Plastivision India 2013 will also showcase special pavilion that would further boost the growth of the industry”.  Highlighting the fact that the industry is conscious of it’s social responsibilities, Mr Oza briefed that, the industry and the government need to work together on technology, innovations and infrastructure for recycling of plastics. As a very large portion of the manufacturers are in SME sector, the solutions need to emerge with cooperation between the processing industry and the policy makers taking advantage of  platforms  such as Plastivision India 2013 where all stake holders will be present.

Adding further, Kailash Murarka, Co-Chairman, “Plastivision India 2013 said that this show is  India's premier industry trade fair organised by AIPMA, to be held in December 12-16, 2013 at Mumbai, Goregaon Exhibition Center.
