Plastivision Arabia 2014 has generated tremendous interest due to the combination of the World Expo in 2020 and the FIFA World Cup in 2022 – that too in quick succession -- is set to provide considerable momentum to regional plastics players, who are expecting demand to swell in the run up to these events. While Dubai is set to spend over US$18 billion for the World Expo 2020, Qatar has earmarked a staggering US$200 billion for the FIFA World Cup in 2022, which could propel plastics usage much over a conservative estimate of nearly 6 metric tons, said Mr. Jayesh Rambhia, Past President, AIPMA and Chairman of PLASTIVISION ARABIA2014. Mr. Rambhia further added “Combine this with economies that are cruising in the fast lane, the region’s plastics producers will have to look at acquiring new machinery and technology to keep pace with the expected heavy surge in consumption of plastics.

Plastic products are heavily used in infrastructure projects, apart from packaging.” Apart from infrastructure projects, millions are going to fly into the region, providing a strong boost to plastics consumption. Together, these events form a comprehensive sourcing as well as networking platform for the entire regional print, packaging, plastics and mold-making industry.
