Packaging Machinery Market: Overview

According to Transparency Market Research's latest report on the packaging machinery market for the historical period of 2013-2018 and forecast period of 2019-2026, demand for machinery automation and renovation is anticipated to boost demand for packaging machinery services. Globally, the packaging machinery market was valued at ~US$ 49 Bn in 2018 and is anticipated to witness a CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period of 2019-2026.

Government Initiatives to Boost Growth of Global Manufacturing Sector

  • The manufacturing sector has witnessed substantial growth in the recent years, particularly in the developing economies of Asia Pacific and Latin America such as Brazil, China, India, and ASEAN. Governments in these countries are widely supporting local manufacturing through various campaigns.
    • The Indian government launched a new “Make-in-India” campaign to support new entrepreneurs in the country by offering tax incentives and aid in capital investment.
    • Made-in-China 2025 is a 10 year industrial development plan of China with an aim to increase Chinese domestic content of core materials to 40% by 2020 and 70% by 2025. It is clear that growth in the manufacturing sector will further boost the demand for packaging machinery in these countries.
  • However, this trend is not limited to only developing countries. consumption of packaging machineries is also increasing at a considerable pace in developed countries such as Italy, Germany, and the U.S. The Italian domestic packaging machinery market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.6% during 2018-2026, on the back of increasing demand for highly advanced packaging machinery from the manufacturing sector.

Use of Advanced Packaging Technologies Increasing Efficiency

  • Companies with profitable businesses aim to reduce costs to achieve a better bottom line. Cost of packaging machinery and adopting advanced packaging technology plays an important role in making strategic decisions.
  • Major manufacturers in the packaging machinery market strive to launch products that help companies to reduce labor charges and gain greater production outputs in lesser time. These solutions are proving to be helpful in decreasing costs along with significant increment in the production capabilities through increased speed, reduction of bottle necks, and capability to run continuously.
  • Adoption of such packaging machinery removes the requirement to frequently find and train a new labour force, which lets companies to assign more value adding responsibilities to available workforce, which in turn can reduce labor turnover through improved workplace conditions.
  • Packaging manufacturers can gain benefits by adopting these advanced packaging machinery technologies such as FFS (Form-Fill-Seal), LDC (Labelling-Decorating-Coding) and others.

Asia Pacific to Offer Substantial Growth Opportunities

  • The packaging industry in the Asia Pacific region is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period, supported by the substantial growth in consumption of packaging across each major country in the region
