Packaging Machinery and Automation

The Packaging Machinery and Automation Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast.

The Packaging Machinery Market Is Robust and Growing

Packaging machines are some of the most common types of machinery found in a wide variety of industries.  Nearly every discrete product purchased by consumers or sold from business to business is packaged in some way.

This report analyzes the market for packaging machinery and packaging automation.  The market grew strongly in 2017 and healthy growth will continue throughout the forecast period.  The food & beverage segment accounts for the largest share, and pharma and healthcare is expected to grow the fastest.

The market for packaging machinery is less volatile than for other types of machinery because of its close association with mass consumption of food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, tissue, and all sorts of consumer goods.  Growth in the packaging machinery industry tends to track growth in megatrends, such as general population growth, urbanization, and rising incomes.

This report presents market sizes for packaging machinery by country of production (“origin” sales), and by region of consumption (“destination” sales).

The focus of this report is on a fixed set of industries that consume packaging machines, rather than the broad spectrum of industries typically covered in other reports.  Some of these industries are further divided into sub-segments that we call “applications” (e.g. food, beverage, and tobacco are three applications of food & beverage).

The report also includes segmentations for nine machine types, plus segments for parts and installation services.  Additional segmentation provides market sizes for seven packaging process steps: package preparation, filling of products, cartoning, closing, sealing, labeling, weighing, transportation (conveying), and end-of-line.

Finally, this report also includes segmentation for the electrical automation components typically used on packaging machines.  These numbers are derived from ARC’s vast knowledge base of automation systems and solutions, and are applied to packaging machines in three sizes.

Packaging Machinery Strategic Issues

This report provides strategies for all three types of packaging machinery market players: automation suppliers, machine builders, and end users.  Many, but not all strategies are driven by IT-related topics such as machine learning, IIoT, and data analytics.  Key strategies include:

  • Abandon proprietary standards
  • Exploit the advantages of smart sensors
  • Embrace the convergence of IT and OT
  • Grow remote services business
  • Provide an automatic parts list
  • Embrace modular machine construction
  • Work with suppliers to realize digital transformation
