It is now a common knowledge that the Personal Care, Home Care and Cosmetics segments in India are the fastest growing segments that have so far seen only the tip of the ice-berg in terms of its true potential. This growth is expected to be fuelled by a highly aspirational and young middle-class sector of over 300 mn people in India. Speciality chemicals and Ingredients form the functional core of the products in these segments. The growth in this industry must be tempered with the right choice of ingredients, formulations and processes to ensure that the final products that reach the end consumers are of high quality and more importantly are compliant with regulations and HSE considerations.
Addressing these aspects and powering the sustainable growth of the industry, a two-day annual trade show, 9th edition of HPCI-2019 got underway at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
The show was inaugurated by Mr. Sunil Bambarkar, President – Indian Society of Cosmetic Chemists, Executives of NumbergMesse Group and Mr. Dilip Raghavan, Managing Director, Exponova Exhibitions and Conferences India Pvt. Ltd.
This ninth edition marks a further milestone in HPCI’s history: In June 2018, HPCI India was fully integrated into the portfolio of ExpoNova Exhibitions & Conferences (India) Pvt. Ltd., a joint venture between NumbergMesse, Indian publisher Colour Publications and German specialist publisher Vincentz Network.
With 250-plus exhibitors and more than 4000 visitors expected to witness the tow day event, will once again be the industry’s most important platform for the Indian market.
The event will also see the technical seminars and workshops being organized by the Indian Society of Cosmetic Chemists (ISCC) during these two day event.
