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.

- The enormous population growth from 206 million in 2022 to 411 million in 2050 demands high sustainable investments in Nigeria’s plastprintpack & agrofood industry.
