PLASTEX 2024 will host more than 500 exhibiting companies from over 50 countries across 20,000 sq meters of exhibition space, thriving on its long-standing commitment to shining the spotlight on comprehensive and sustainable products for the Middle East and North Africa market.

Under the patronage of Egypt’s Ministry of Trade and Industry, PLASTEX 2024, the largest plastics and rubber exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa, is set to mark its 19th edition – displaying an unparalleled showcase of cutting-edge solutions from 9 -12 January 2024 at the Egypt International Exhibitions Center (EIEC) in Cairo.

With the endorsement of influential authorities, including the Chamber of Chemical Industries, the Division of Plastics Industries, and the Chemical & Fertilizers Exports Council, PLASTEX 2024 is poised to usher in innovative and sustainable solutions for the ever-expanding plastics and rubber market in the region.

This edition will host more than 500 exhibiting companies from more than 50 countries. Spanning an impressive 20,000 square meters of exhibition space, PLASTEX 2024 will thrive on its long-standing commitment to shining the spotlight on comprehensive and sustainable products for the Middle East and North Africa market. This includes machinery and equipment, raw materials and auxiliaries, semi-finished and end products, packaging solutions, recycling products, reinforced plastics, components and spare parts, AI and robotics technologies, automations and smart services and more.


PLASTEX 2024 will introduce four feature exhibition zones: the Packaging Zone, the Recycling Zone, Rubber Zone and Industry 4.0 Zone. These specialised zones will address new product trends, pioneering solutions and spotlight the next generation of plastics and rubber solutions for the region.

Egypt, as one of the most lucrative and strategically positioned global markets, is becoming a hub for the plastics industry in the MENA region in the coming decade. With local production meeting just 30% of market needs, Egypt represents untapped potential for the entire value chain of the rubber and plastics industries, given its consumption rate accounting for 11% of the MENA’s share of plastic products.

The engineering plastics market in Egypt is projected to reach US $858 million by 2025, driven by factors such as the demand for lightweight and durable materials in industries like automotive and aerospace, the growth of the construction industry, and increasing awareness of the benefits of engineering plastics.

The exhibition and the international pavilions will feature country-specific products from distinguished nations, bringing global expertise and perspectives on sustainability, innovations, and the modern evolution of plastics and rubber products with country pavilions from Germany, India, Turkey, Taiwan, Korea, Kuwait, and China.

Over the course of four days, PLASTEX 2024 is set to attract more than 30,000 attendees, including government stakeholders, global CEOs, and influential decision-makers, manufacturers, dealers and distributors operating in the vital sector of plastics and rubber value chain. This will bring an opportunity to the attendees to engage with all industry stakeholders under one roof, to explore regional developments, and new market opportunities, to build new connections and to review the latest solutions in the market for regional development and long-term growth.


For 30 years, PLASTEX has served as a dynamic platform that fosters collaborations between international and regional manufacturers and the entire value chain, contributing to the prosperity and advancement of end-user industries. As the largest of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa, PLASTEX 2024 promises to be a pivotal platform to drive innovation, sustainability, and the future of plastics and rubber.

This edition of PLASTEX continues to position itself as a must-attend event to chart the course for the burgeoning plastics and rubber market in the Middle East and North Africa, as it sets to be an unparalleled opportunity for networking and knowledge-sharing in the region. Further, early registration ensures complimentary access to the news and information about the event and enjoy premium visitor experience.
