Packaging is an essential feature in the product manufacturing process. It helps in protecting the products from dust, physical damage, and numerous other factors. Automated packaging reduces packaging cost, improves labor productivity, and maintains packaging quality. The growing trend of automation in the packaging industry is expected to further lead to growth of the global automated packaging market.
Automation helps in decreasing labor cost both directly as well as indirectly. Automated packaging systems offer high-quality system-matched bags. Automated packaging systems aim to create an efficient packing approach that is flexible for a wide-ranging variation of industrial uses. In today’s competitive market, packaging of products plays an important role as it protect the product from damage.
Earlier, manufacturers depended on traditional packaging technologies such as manual production and dedicated machinery techniques. Dedicated equipment and manual production with higher labor and liability cost are unable to meet current needs of better production flexibility. Hence, companies are moving toward automated packaging systems which provides them with flexibility and better packaging quality.
An increasing number of researchers have initiated the process of building industrial systems that deal with compound robotic tasks. One of the applications of the next generation of robotics is the automated packing of parts in an assembly process. Furthermore, automation is enhancing the demand for automated packaging systems in the global automated packaging systems market as the current automated machineries require less maintenance.
E-commerce is growing globally especially in emerging countries. Global logistics has become complex due to the swift growth of e-commerce. Packaging is an important part of the e-commerce sector. Rising demand for online shopping has grown in the last couple of years due to which online retailers require an efficient machinery for packaging the ordered products in bulk. These factors are expected to boost the global automated packaging systems market during the forecast period.
High cost and errors in the software is projected to restrain the global automated packaging systems market during the forecast period. However, rise in demand for automated packaging systems is expected to create lucrative opportunities for major players in the automated packaging systems market in the next few years. Additionally, product development in automated packaging systems is further anticipated to boost the automated packaging systems market. For instance, in October 2017, Automated Packaging Systems Inc. launched two versatile machines with high-speed productivity, called the Autobag and Autobag baggers, at the Processing & Packaging Machinery Trade Association, the U.K’s leading trade association for processing and packaging machinery. The launched products are suitable for a wide range of packaging applications, and also deliver a highly efficient, cost-effective, reliable solution. Full demonstration of the launched products takes place throughout the Processing & Packaging Machinery Trade Association.
