The 8th plastprintpack & agrofood Nigeria 2023 in Lagos

Major professional event for the fast-growing Nigerian plastprintpack market

It is based on the following facts and figures that the German trade show specialists fairtrade are organising the 8th edition of plastprintpack & agrofood Nigeria as the major professional event for the fast-growing Nigerian plastprintpack market.

plastprintpack & agrofood Nigeria takes place from 28 to 30 March 2023 at the Landmark Centre in Lagos.

Facts & figures on the fast-growing Nigerian plastprintpack market

  • With 72% of raw materials imported (mainly from the Middle East, Europe and Asia) and only 28% produced locally, the Nigerian market has great potential for exporters of plastics in primary forms. The country is Africa’s third largest importer of plastics in primary forms.
  • With €111m in 2020, Nigeria is the second largest importer of plastics technology in Sub-Sahara Africa. Its imports increased by an average of 19.7% per year between 2016 and 2020.
  • At €50m in 2020, Nigeria ranks second in sub-Saharan Africa for imports of printing and paper technology.
  • With €174 million in 2020 after €155 million in 2019 (+12.2%), Nigeria is the largest importer of packaging technology in Africa, in line with Egypt with €173 million, but well ahead of South Africa, Algeri, Morocco and other African countries.
  • See full details of the a.m. figures, source VDMA 2022.
  • The enormous population growth from 206 million in 2022 to 411 million in 2050 demands high sustainable investments in Nigeria’s plastprintpack & agrofood industry.

  • H.E. Dr. Bernd von Münchow-Pohl

    Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany Lagos

    As a representative of a country for which machinery of all sorts remains a major if not the biggest export category, I see great market potential in Nigeria, the continent’s largest economy, and in particular in the agrofood & plastprintpack sector.

    This 7th edition comes along in a bigger format, with more exhibition space, and more participating companies representing a wider geographical spread. Without a doubt, the fair’s overarching concept of “from field to fork” has proven successful.
