An important trade event for the packaging industry, one of the country's leading industries
With great production, export, and employment capabilities, the packaging industry is a giant industry that makes a significant contribution to Turkey's total exports. The Packaging Industrialists Association (ASD) achieved its targets for the year 2023 early in 2022 and closed the year with 8 billion dollars of exports. Therefore, setting even more ambitious targets for 2023, the industry is now focusing on sustainability to maintain its success in export operations. Also closely monitoring the transition to the carbon-free economy, the industry aims to seize the opportunities in the transformation to a climate-neutral future and to gain a competitive edge in geographically proximate markets, such as European countries, the Middle East, and Africa. Furthermore, countries seeking alternatives to China as a result of disruptions in the supply chain also present a significant opportunity which could help the industry to improve its export potential. In the light of all such opportunities that could potentially expand the export circle of the industry, the Eurasia Packaging Istanbul Fair stands out as one of the most effective trade platform that will bring together domestic manufacturers with buyers outside of Türkiye, and exhibit the industry's strength, innovation capabilities and sustainability perspective to both local and international visitors. In this respect, the trade fair makes a significant contribution to the Turkish packaging industry in its attempt to reach USD 50 billion in size by 2030 and its export target of USD 20 billion.
