The Paper Industry plays an important role on the Indian economy. Currently the paper industry is growing @ 7% annually and poised for a substantial expansion from the present annual output of 15.90 million tonnes to meet a projected demand of 25  million tonnes by 2025 (approx.).

  • A meeting ground for technology sellers and seekers.
