Bottle cappers are also known as bottle capping machines, which are used to place a cap on the opening of the bottle to avoid the contact of materials inside the bottle with the external environment. Bottles were initially used for storage of wines and beverages, but with modernization, use of bottle has been extended to numerous products and materials. There are several ways of capping, such as automatic, semi-automatic, and hand-held. In an automatic bottling process, the bottles to be capped are passed through a filling position to the capping position using conveyer systems. At the capping place, speed of capping head is adjusted to the speed of bottles approaching the conveyor. Once the bottle reaches the capping station, it is fitted with the cap and, then, the bottle capper immediately prepares itself for next bottle. Capped bottles are then taken towards the further process of labelling or packaging. The conveyor is never stopped with a view to maintain a continuous process. They can be customized to perform multiple capping processes depending upon the requirement. In the hand held capping process, the process fixture of a cap to the bottle is done manually. In this, a worker holds a bottle in hand or on stationary platform and manually adjusts the capping device over the bottle opening. After the cap is fixed, the machine worker continues this with other bottles. Bottler capper can be adjusted for all sizes of caps.
Bottle cappers are used in facilities industries where products are packed in bottles which include beverages, lip balms, foods and sauces, cleaning chemicals, health and beauty products, pharmaceuticals, acids and corrosives, and automotive. Depending on the products being packed, requirement of bottle cappers varies. Bottle cappers are primarily of three types based o their mode of operation: automatic, semi-automatic and hand held.
Currently, the bottle cappers market is driven by technological advancements in various industries where products are being shipped into bottle containers. The market for bottle cappers is also driven by increased demand for packaged food and beverages and other FMCG products, which can be reused. Moreover, use of spout pouches for packaging of products has impacted the sales of conventional bottle caper. Nevertheless, companies engaged in manufacturing bottle capers adopting strategies and expanding product offerings, which helped the product to maintain a constant sales over past three years.
The global bottle cappers market has been segmented on the basis of technology, product type, and geography. By technology, it is segmented into automatic bottle capper which is further sub segmented into in-line cappers and rotary chuck-style cappers, semi- automatic cappers, and hand-held cappers. Furthermore, by product type, the global bottle cappers market is segmented into screw cappers, press/push-on bottle cappers, and roll-on bottle cappers.
By geography, the global bottle cappers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Adoption of innovative products in North America is further fueling growth of the market for bottle cappers in the region. Asia Pacific (APAC) market is expected to witness growth in the future due to changing life style and increases in consumption of bottle products, such as FMCG and cosmetics, in the region. Also, of late, APAC has transformed into a beverage packing hub due to the large consumer base and minimum cost of raw materials in the region.
Due to the rapid growth and high demand for bottled products in several industries, such as beverages, foods and sauces, cleaning chemicals, health and beauty products, pharmaceuticals, acids and corrosives liquid and automotive, the global bottle capper market is expected to expand at a healthy growth rate during the forecast period.
