Extremely positive feedback from the Russian market

14.02.2018 Section: Articles

The positive feedback received lately from the Russian market and, in particular, from the packaging industry and the related processing industries as well as plastics and rubber has now been confirmed very emphatically at the two trade fairs upakovka – Processing and Packaging and interplastica (the 21st International Plastics and Rubber Trade Fair). The upswing in major market segments is leading to strong demand for packaging as well as plastic and rubber. The manufacturers of these products are investing as much as they can in modern production technologies and materials, in order to be able to satisfy the increasingly exacting requirements made by their customers. More than 900 companies from 30 countries presented their innovations at the two trade fairs in the AO Expocenter in Krasnaja Presnja from 23. to 26. January and were unanimous in reporting a tremendous response and impressive business success. 24,900 experts, mainly from all over Russia and from the neighbouring countries, visited upakovka and interplastica. 23,000 visitors were registered in 2017.

Werner M. Dornscheidt, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, was satisfied with the trade fairs: “To the extent that the Russian economy is developing positively and reliably, Russian companies are taking advantage of the two leading industry showcases. This is where they can get to know the new developments on the world market and enter into intensive negotiations with the suppliers directly. The exhibitors that maintained a consistent presence in Russia under poorer market conditions as well are now benefitting to a particularly large extent from their good contacts in the industry. In addition to the conclusion of many sales contracts, the high quality of the demand was a very important sign that an economically attractive future is beginning.”

German plastics packaging manufacturers start new year very optimistic

11.01.2018 Section: News of branch

German plastics packaging manufacturers have given their views on current economic trends at the beginning of the new year and delivered a very positive assessment.

Around 90 percent of companies questioned rate the current economic situation as good. This is a significant rise in the percentage of confident views compared to the beginning of 2017 when 70 percent of IK members rated the economic environment as “good”. Survey respondents also rated their own sales expectations more positively for the first quarter of 2018. Only their assessment of export development remains much the same as 2017. Almost 60 percent of companies also expect higher raw materials prices which could affect the price development of plastics packaging. The profit situation, however, remains tense.

All in all, the results of the IK economic trends survey for the first quarter of 2018 show a renewed increase in expectations among companies after the two previous years had delivered above-average results. “This promising forecast should not obscure the fact that Germany as an economic location is faced with growing threats,” said Ulf Kelterborn, General Manager of IK (German plastics packaging industry association), commenting on the current results.

08.11.2017 Section: News of branch

Interested companies can now register for upakovka 2018, to be held at AO Expocenter Krasnaja Presnja in Moscow from 23 to 26 January 2018. Exhibitors already signed up for the coming trade fair include Sollich, Krones, Konica Minolta, TMI and Comexi. There will once again be an official German federal participation in 2018 with a registration deadline of 22 September of this year.

Despite the current political climate Russian food production is expanding and both Russian and international companies are continuing to invest in setting up and developing local production capacities. The resulting upswing at the last edition of upakovka with considerable rises in visitor numbers and satisfied exhibitors is now impacting companies’ general registration behaviour: there is a clear trend towards enlarged stands.

Russian market is gaining momentum again

10.02.2017 Section: Articles

There is confidence in Russia about the year that has just begun: following a difficult period, dominated by political tensions, a drop in the oil price and a weak rouble, experts are now working on the assumption that the domestic economy will be moving out of recession. The World Bank is forecasting economic growth in Russia for 2017 too. Western companies are anticipating an upswing and see this as confirmation of their policy of maintaining their business contacts in crisis years as well. upakovka, the 25th International Trade Fair for Processing & Packaging and interplastica, the 20th International Trade Fair Plastics and Rubber, have now demonstrated in Moscow that this positive outlook for the future applies in particular to the plastics, rubber and packaging sectors and related processing industries. Developments in major consumption segments are leading to growing demand in the production of plastics and rubber products as well as packaging. Some 800 companies from 33 different countries presented their innovations at the SAO Expocenter exhibition site in Krasnaja Presnja from 24 to 27 January.

23,000 experts from all over Russia and from the neighbouring countries attended the two trade fairs. 20,900 visitors were recorded in 2016. “It is now paying off for the international exhibitors at upakovka and interplastica and that they have maintained their presence in Russia and have remained in contact with their business partners there”, concludes Werner M. Dornscheidt, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “They are benefitting now that business is gaining momentum again. The atmosphere in the halls was remarkably good, the exhibitors talked about extremely interested businesspeople who were keen to place orders too. Trade visitors take the unique opportunity that is offered here to familiarise themselves with the new developments on the world market and to negotiate directly with suppliers.”

27.12.2016 Section: News of branch

Visitors of upakovka 2017 (24 to 27 January) are not only in for ranges displayed by some 200 exhibitors from 19 countries but also for the Russian debut of the special innovationparc show, which has already become an established fixture at interpack in Düsseldorf over the past few years. Embedded in the innovationparc area is a lecture forum which will be busy with presentations over the entire duration of the trade fair.

The first day will see the official launch of the SAVE FOOD Initiative on the Russian market. As part of the programme devised by the Russian branch of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) high-calibre representatives from ministries and the industry will be speaking about the challenges and solutions concerning food losses and waste in Russia. Several companies active on the Russian market such as retail group METRO, the Food Bank “Rus”, the agricultural combine Olam or LavkaLavka, the cooperative of small and medium-sized Russian agricultural units, have already signalled their interest in the SAVE FOOD Initiative. According to estimates, up to about 25% of all foodstuffs produced in Russia end up not being consumed. Although this figure is under the global average of 30%, it is still clearly too high for a sustainable use of resources.
