Indian Paint Industry poised to touch Rs 70,000 cr by 2021-22: IPA

Agra, Jan 11(UNI) The Indian paint industry, currently worth Rs 50,000 crore, is poised to cross Rs 70,000 crore in next two years with decrease in the GST rate boosting its growth, the Indian Paint Association (IPA) claimed here on Friday.

The 29th Indian Paint conference (IPA) in the Taj city was jointly inaugurated today by Mr Sumit Sawhney, CEO & MD - Renault India and Mr Jayant Krishna, Former Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) in the presence of stalwarts from the Indian paint industry and senior officials from industry bodies like CII.



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. There is a strong co-relation between the Indian Paint Industry and the GDP growth of the country. It has historically surpassed India’s GDP growth by 1.5 to 2 times.”

of GST rates from 28 per cent to 18 per cent has come in as a breather for the paint industry”.

with IPA announced the launch of an Apprenticeship Training Programme in association with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) for developing skilled manpower for the industry.
