Global Flow Wrap Machines Market: Snapshot
Flow wrapping is essentially a horizontal process in which the products of any shape or size can be wrapped in plastic films or foils consisting of clear or printed polypropylene films. The end-packaging is considered to be safe, secure, and flexible, with minimal product shifts in the package. Superior to overwrapping in many ways, flow-wrapping is extensively used for packaging trillions of products such as food items, cosmetics, electronic components, and machinery. Two primary types of machines are used: vertical and horizontal flow wrapping machines. With the help of these machines, the packaging companies are able to endow a variety of alignments to products, such as cylindrical alignments, cubical alignments, conical alignments, and rectangular alignments.
Horizontal wrapping machines are suitable for packaging identical individual products at high speed. They are extensively used for confectionary, bakery items, household items, and refrigerated products. Depending on machines model and the end-packaging intended, the packing speed of these machines range between 20 and 800 pieces per minute. In addition, they are helpful in wrapping irregular shaped products items. Flow wrapping process significantly improves the shelf-life of the packed products and can also be customized. Several vendors are offering flow wrap machines with a robust construction and able to deliver high-performance with optimal power usage. The growing popularity of flow wrapping for various pharmaceutical products bodes well for the flow wrap machines market. Furthermore, the advent of programmable and automatic flow wrap machines is a key development expected to open lucrative growth avenues for market players.
Flow Wrap Machines Market: Overview
Flow wrapping is also referred to as crimp-seal wrapping, pillow pouch wrapping, fin seal wrapping and horizontal wrapping. In flow wrapping, a product having any shape and size can be wrapped effectively and in a printed or a clear PP (poly propylene) film. The end point is a flexible and a resilient package which has crimped seals and a non-lap kind of seal at the bottom. The film is tightly wrapped around the product in order to avoid chances of spill as well as reducing the shifting of the product within the packaging. Flow wrap machines are used for the purpose of clean and efficient film wrapping of products. There are two types of orientations of flow wrapping machines, depending upon the commodity to be wrapped or the end product usage, namely, vertical and horizontal wrapping. These flow wrapping machines offer firm packaging solutions to several commodities and provide several package shape alignments such as cubical alignments, cylindrical alignments, rectangular alignments, conical alignments etc. Apart from convenient packaging they offer speedy package production of products, and hence are used in many industry verticals.
Flow Wrap Machines Market: Applications
Flow wrap machines are known for their rapid yet a firm packaging style. They are used in many industry verticals, to name a few of them, flow wrap machines are used in detergent and soap industry, healthcare industry, pharmaceutical industry, chemical industry, food and beverage sector, and the list goes on. The flexible packaging that these flow wrap machines provide make them indispensable option for packaging products such as medicines, food items, cosmetic products, industrial and electronic components, various types of liquids, etc.
Flow Wrap Machines Market: Factors impacting the dynamics
Many factors contribute to the growth of the flow wrap machines, thereby influencing their adoption in various industries. They offer cost efficient packaging solutions with effective package finish which avoids spill and internal shifting of products. Moreover, shape and size of the product or the commodity poses no threat to the packaging thus making them a flexible packaging solution. Various sizes and shapes can be obtained as per requirement of the end use. Their adoption in various fields fuel their growth throughout the forecasted period. A good annual growth is expected to be witnessed owing to the increasing number of pharmaceutical companies and new pharmaceutical products which use this flexible packaging solution. Moreover, food and beverage companies are also rising, which will throw a positive impact on the growth of the flow wrap machines in the near future. They are also used in applications which require higher volume effective packaging solutions. The flow wrap machines, however, face a limitation of electricity. These machines require additional electricity sources as well as fuel. This can add up to additional cost of production and this could be a pulling factor restraining the growth of the flow wrap machines market.
Flow Wrap Machines Market: Regional Overview
The flow wrap machines market consists of regional analysis covering important regions of North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific and rest of the world (Middle Eastern countries and Africa). North America shows higher food and beverage production owing to higher growth of these companies in the various North American regions and hence flow wrap machines are experiencing good growth potential and expected to experience much more growth in this region. APAC (Asia Pacific) also gives promising opportunities for the flow wrap machines owing to the pharmaceutical sector growth in this region. In this region, especially China and India are the major areas for these machines. This has led APAC to become the growth hub for the flow wrap machines market followed by Europe. The Middle Eastern counties and Latin America show slow growth with respect to the adoption of flow wrap machines, however, with growth in industry verticals such as pharmaceuticals and industrial components, they can contribute to the overall growth of the flow wrap machines market.
