Roll Slitting Machines Market Outlook - 2027

The roll slitting machines market size is expected to reach $2,801.8 million in 2027, from $2,266.4 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2020 to 2027. Roll slitting or slitting is an integral part of the converting industry. It includes reducing the size of a master roll by slitting it into smaller and manageable rolls. Roll slitting machines are mainly available in two major types, namely, roll/log slitters and slitter rewinders. Roll/log slitting machines are utilized to cut master roll into rolls with smaller widths by slicing it, without the necessity of unwinding and rewinding the roll. Whereas a slitter rewinder is a sophisticated machine that enables unwinding, slitting, and rewinding of the master roll and thus, allow formation of much smaller rolls. Roll slitting machines are highly versatile and support slitting operations on various kinds of materials including paper, fabric, metals, adhesive tapes, and others. 

Roll slitting machines have undergone various technological advancements and have adapted automation technologies to enhance machine performances. These machines offer properties such as automatic knife positioning systems, smart data collection, process control, and other benefits which reduce the requirement of manual working on the machine. In addition, the integration of automation technologies not only improves machine productivity, but also reduces machine downtimes and changeover cycle times, which in turn increases the efficiency of the whole converting process. Thus, the integration of automation technology in roll slitting machines drive the growth of roll slitting machines market. Moreover, the growth in the demand for flexible packaging also drives the growth of roll slitting machines industry. Flexible packaging industry includes converting process of raw materials including, printing, laminating, coating, and slitting. The flexible packaging industry is experiencing gradual growth owing to the use of more sustainable packaging materials, less requirement of water and energy usage, transportation efficiency, food waste prevention, and other factors. Thus, the growth in flexible packaging industry surges the demand for roll slitting machines, thereby driving its market growth.

However, a roll slitting machine cannot cut rolls of different types of materials. Thus, to operate on different types of materials such as plastic, paper, textile, and others require different types of blades and roll slitting machines for operation. This restrains the demand of roll slitting machines for industries operating with versatile materials. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production facilities of various flexible packaging companies, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries including the U.S., Italy, the UK, and others. This has hampered the demand for roll slitting machines market significantly during the first two quarters of 2020. Moreover, the lockdowns have also decreased the demand for packaged food, as people are switching more healthy alternatives during the pandemic. This has also affected the packaging industry, which in turn restrains the growth of roll slitting machines industry.

Roll/Log slitters rewinders segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

On the contrary, outsourcing of the slitting processes in the converting industry in the future is anticipated to boost the growth of roll slitting machines industry. By outsourcing, packaging suppliers can focus on obtaining repetitive slitting results, which ultimately saves time of operation and offers better quality slitting. Computer controlled slitting can further reduce down times of the machine.

The roll slitting machines market is segmented on the basis of type, material, operation, and region. According to type, the global roll slitting machines market is categorized into roll/log slitters and slitter rewinders. By material, the market is classified into paper, polymers, foil, and other. Based on operation, the market is fragmented into manual and automatic.
