Pharmtech & Ingredients is ­currently the largest international pharmaceutical exhibition in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. Constantia Flexibles’ pharma division and our Russian printing partner Torgovij Dom TT were among the 359 exhibitors.

The 2016 Pharmtech exhibition drew record-breaking crowds over four days last November. Over 6,500 visi­t­ors from 40 countries made the trip to Moscow – 9 % more than in the previous year. 

The Russian pharmaceutical market is one of the most important growth markets in the industry (one of the so-called “pharmerging markets”) and is expected to be worth US$ 31.2 billion by 2019. Currently 70% of sales are generated by medications imported into Russia or manufactured using imported substances. 

US$5 billion has been invested in the government’s Pharma 2020 program, which aims to increase the market share of medications produced in Russia to 50 % by 2020. As a result, demand for technical equipment and imported pharmaceutical ingredients has increased significantly.*

Constantia Flexibles’ pharma team has been paying particular attention to Russia for many years. Thanks to the extensive, long-standing collaboration with our Russian printing partner, we are able to meet the local market requirements in relation to shorter delivery times, higher product quality and local regulations.

“Спасибо и до встречи!” 

We look forward to seeing everyone again in Moscow on 21–24 November 2017, when Pharmtech once again opens its doors to visitors from the international pharmaceutical industry.
