Global shell and slide packers market: Dynamics
The global cigar and cigarette packaging industry has undergone marginal transformation in the last couple of decades. According to experts, the cigar market tends to be more stable than the cigarette market. One of the major restraints regarding the cigarette market is due to the size. Most of the cigarette manufacturers use the same pack size, leading to lack of differentiating strategy, unlike the cigar market. Manufacturers in the shell and slide packers market are increasingly focusing on replacement of mechanical components for electronics ones. This is expected to affect the manual shell and slide packer market, as the market starts preferring semi-automatic and automatic shell and slide packers with electronic parts. Another key area that the manufacturers of shell and slide packers focus on, is maintenance – the objective is to reduce maintenance time, yet increase production rate. The shell and slide packers market may fall victim to the declining growth rate of the cigar and cigarette market. In Europe, there have been several changes in laws regarding tobacco, the recent one being that of the ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ (TPD) of the European Commission, which has caused uncertainties and restrictions on the tobacco market, ultimately affecting the shell and slide packers market. However, ongoing efforts by manufacturers to optimize the shell and slide packers to ensure minimum human intervention, coupled with efforts to decrease maintenance needs, is expected to facilitate in reducing costs as well as saving time, for the consumers. This may have a positive effect on the global shell and slide packers market, over the forecast period.
