Automatic labeling machine is the most important component of packaging process in industries such as food & beverages, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. From the consumer's perspective, the quality of a packaged product is determined by the quality of the product's labeling. Automatic labeling machines are available in different types, depending on the shape and substance of the object that needs to be branded or labeled. These machines are designed for side labeling, wrap around labeling, as well as top and bottom labeling of the products. Label machines are designed for labeling products such as bottles, cardboards, cans, boxes, jars, and containers of different sizes. These automated machines replaced the necessity to depend on man power for every procedure in packaging and transportation.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis


The use of automated labeling equipment eliminates the requirement for labor to do several operations. With automated equipment, companies may see a considerable reduction in labeling and branding work as the operational parts and labeling techniques are carried out by automated machineries. Labeling machines are of various types, which include self-adhesive, shrink sleeve labelers, and glue-based labelers. Each of which is either manufactured to fulfil standard industrial criteria or modified to match the needs of the customer. Manufacturer generally offers bottle sticker labeling machines, top labeling machines, ampoule sticker labeling machines, and other customized label machines. Furthermore, shrink sleeve labeling machine uses sleeve films that are durable, sensitive to light, abrasion resistant, and waterproof. The labels on the containers and bottles may be efficiently removed, allowing the container or bottle to be reused. The sleeve film is ecologically beneficial because it does not require adhesive and produces no harmful waste. It is easily recyclable. Although shrink sleeve labelers are more expensive than other labeling equipment, they are the most effective approach for increasing brand recognition and marketing among clients.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic ceased the production of various products in the automatic labeling machine industry, which is attributed to the global lockdown. This hampered the growth of automatic labeling machine market from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2022.
  • COVID-19 affected the sales of automatic labeling machine in the end quarter of 2021 and is anticipated to have a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
  • The major demand for automatic labeling machine was previously noticed in giant manufacturing regions, such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and South America, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for labeling machines.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Automatic labeling machine manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain themselves during the COVID-19 health crisis.
  • Automatic labeling machine manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce. 

Top Impacting Factors

The automatic labeling machine market is growing due to factors such as rise in need for automation in the food sector, improvement in economic conditions, urbanization, and increase in requirement for packaging solutions for various products. Moreover, the change in food & beverage industries across the world necessitates the use of automated labeling devices to a large extent. Further, rise in health concern, surge in demand for nutritious food, changes in eating habits, and the adoption of automated technology in labeling are expected to boost the global automated labeling machine market in food & beverages sectors. 
Furthermore, key players in market are providing effective automatic labeling equipment that provides labeling perfection. These automated labeling machines guarantee label quality and are adaptable to changing regulatory requirements. Manufacturers are attempting to create automatic labeling machines that are compatible with a wide range of applications, from basic, low-cost automatic and semi-automatic applications to high-speed, high-demand, state-of-the-art labeling applications.

  • In March 2021, HERMA U.S. Inc., introduced HERMA 123M HC Wrap-around continuous labeling machine for pharmaceutical companies. It has two new modules, EasySplicer and EasyCutter, which change the backing paper automatically without machine coming to standstill. 
  • In July 2020, KHS GmbH, a manufacturer of filling and packaging machines, introduced Innoket Neo Flex modular labeling machine. The Flex series is configured with two to four modules, depending on the machine size and requirements. These are switched with only a few hand changes made without the use of any tools. Machines are used to label plastic and glass containers with up to 74,000 containers in an hour. 
  • In January 2021, Sidel Manufacturing Company, a provider of packaging solutions, reached a milestone of delivering its 5,000th labeling machine. The EvoDECO Roll-Fed is equipped with an automatic vacuum cleaning system and automatic label removal. The EvoDECO platform is expected to deliver many labeling applications in one multi-technology machine or a single labeling application to reduce total ownership costs.
