Speaking on the occasion, Mr Abhijit Roy, president – IPA underlined, “We are delighted to be organising the largest trade show of the paint industry in the country in a colorful city like Agra. The Indian Paint Industry, currently valued at around Rs 50,000 crore, is poised to grow at a healthy rate and expected to reach around Rs 70, 000 crore by 2021-22.
