Why exhibit at printpack alger?

Algeria is the third largest importer of printing & paper technology in Africa

Algeria’s printing, packaging and plastics industry is booming, making it Africa’s and the Arab Middle East’s largest importer of packaging and plastics technology and Africa’s third largest importer of printing & paper technology.
This is why more and more international technology leaders participate at printpack alger & plast alger 2020. The 6th International Printing, Packaging and Plastics 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 organised by fairtrade and Messe Duesseldorf since 2017.

“More than 220 leading exhibitors from around the globe will participate at this year’s edition of printpack & plast 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.

Sabine Geldermann, Director drupa and Global Head Print Technologies with Messe Duesseldorf points out: “Algeria’s imports of printing and paper technology have increased from 74 million euros in 2012 to 91 million euros in 2018. As a result, Algeria belongs to the three largest importers of printing & paper technology on the African continent, together with South Africa and Egypt.”
Algeria is Africa’s and the Middle East’s largest importer of packaging technology  
According to VDMA, Algerian imports of packaging technology increased by 8.7% annually (!) between 2012 and 2018, from 149 million euros to 246 million euros in 2018. Like this Algeria is also the leading importer of packaging technology on the African continent in 2018, followed by South Africa (175 million euros), Egypt (168 million euros) and Nigeria (158 million euros).
Algeria is also a leader compared to major countries in the Middle East. In 2018, for example, Iran imported packaging machinery worth 166 million euros, Saudi Arabia for 159 million euros and the UAE for 134 million euros. Italy, Germany, France, Spain, China, Turkey and Austria are Algeria's main suppliers.
