Global Packaging Machinery Market Overview
Packaging Machinery Market size in 2016 was valued at $39,647 million growing at CAGR of 6.7% to reach $62,063 million by 2023. Packaging machinery market has witness increased adoption owing to factors such as increase in applications of packaging machinery in a wide range of industries across food and drink, healthcare, cosmetics, and other consumer goods as well as a range of industrial sectors where packaging has become essential, with its usage increasing broadly in line with the global economy.
Packaging machinery is used for a wide variety of functions that includes canning; container cleaning, filling, and forming; bagging, packing, unpacking, bottling, sealing, and lidding; inspection and check weighing; wrapping, shrink film, and heat sealing; case forming, labeling, and encoding; palletizing and depalletizing; and related applications. The demand for packaging machinery is largely driven by the increasing consumer goods demand, increasing adoption of automated packaging machines, and development of energy efficient machines. Modern automated packaging machines are used in different stages of packaging and ensure that the stages are completed in minutes rather than hours compared to the older versions. The other key factor driving the market for packaging machinery is the increasing demand for packaging robots from several end-user industries. Packaging machines play a vital role in ensuring product safety throughout the supply chain.
The global packaging machinery industry is segmented based on machine type, end-user industries, and geography. Based on machine type, the packaging machinery market is classified into filling machines, FFS (form, fill and seal) machines, cartoning machines, palletizing machines, labeling machines, wrapping machines, and cleaning & sterilizing machines. Filling machines are the most dominant machine type accounting for about 37% of the overall market in 2016. Based on end-user industries, the global packaging machinery market has been classified into food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics, and others. The food & beverage segment dominated the market in 2016 accounting for $24,980 million in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% throughout the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific was the most dominant region for the packaging machinery market in 2016 accounting for about 38% in the global packaging machinery market. The dominance of the Asia-Pacific region is due to the presence of a large number of food & beverage and personal care product manufacturers in the region.
