KUMAR INDUSTRIES - MUNIT KUMAR
What are your expectations for Zoomark International 2021, being held in person?
Trade shows are platforms where vendors and customers come together under one roof, network, present their existing products and new launches and share views. Customers have the opportunity to select products that fulfil their needs from a great variety of different suppliers. Unfortunately this has not been possible over the past two years due to the spread of the global pandemic. We are now very glad that pet companies will have the chance to exhibit at Zoomark International once more. During this year's event we expect to meet many new customers and get the chance to present our expertise and the new launches which were developed during the pandemic period. So we hope Zoomark 2021 will be a great success for the pet industry.
The whole pet industry has seen an impressive increase in sales. Will this growth continue in 2021? And after that?
Yes, we expect that 2021 is also going to see record sales for the pet industry. Many companies in India and the rest of the world have grown. During the pandemic people have been spending more time with their families and pets, and many people have become pet-owners for the first time. It is well known that having a pet in the home helps keep us away from stress, so we expect to see the pet industry grow considerably this year and in the years to come. Of course, there are also challenges in the market, due to the rising costs of raw materials - metals, plastic, silicon, packing materials, etc., but this should not hamper sales.
