Paperex 2023: Premier Global Paper Exhibition Featuring Leading Brands and Cutting-Edge Technologies


The 16th edition of Paperex, the world’s largest paper exhibition, will host prominent global paper industry brands, showcasing cutting-edge technology and eco-friendly products. Taking place from December 6-9, 2023, at the India Expo Centre in Delhi NCR, India, this event coincides with India’s robust paper sector, currently boasting 861 paper mills, of which 526 are operational, with a combined capacity of 27.15 million tonnes. Notably, paper consumption in India is projected to experience an annual growth rate of 6-7%, reaching 30 million tonnes by FY 2026-27, driven by educational initiatives and the expansion of organized retail.

India’s per capita paper usage, at about 15 kg, lags far behind the global average of 57 kg.

India, the world’s fastest growing paper market, coincides with economic growth. Forecasts indicate a proportional increase in paper consumption in relation to GDP. A one-kilogram increase in per capita consumption results in a one-million-tonne increase in demand.
