Packaging Machinery Industry Analysis Report

1. Industry Development Situation
Packaging machinery refers to the machine which is able to complete all or part of the product and commodity packaging. The packaging process including filling, wrapping, sealing and other associated processes, such as cleaning, stacking and demolition. In addition, the packaging also includes measurement or stamp packages. The use of packaging machinery products can improve productivity, reduce labor intensity, adapt to the needs of large-scale production, and to meet hygiene requirements.

According to GB/T7311-2008 “packaging machinery Classification and Model preparation method”, in accordance with the main function of packaging machinery, packaging machinery of different classification, Common classification of packaging machinery are filling machinery, sealing machinery, wrapping machinery, and multi-function packaging machinery, labeling machinery, cleaning machinery, drying machinery, sterilizing machinery, strapping machinery, setting mounted machinery, the auxiliary packaging machinery and other packaging machinery totaled 13 categories.

The largest users of packaging machinery are food industry, electronics, chemicals, fertilizers, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other industries also have a great demand for packaging machinery. At present, the proportion of China’s packaging machinery market is about: 28% of the food industry, beverage industry is 15%, 18% of the pharmaceutical industry, the tobacco industry is 3%, 4% of the cosmetics industry, 15% of the oil and daily chemical industry, and 17% of the other industrial.

Packaging Machinery Industry Analysis Report

In the next few years, sales of packaging equipment in developing countries and regions will exceed the sales in developed countries and regions (such as Japan, the United States and Western Europe). The largest developing nations - China, whose demand for packaging equipment in 2012 will be more than 3.3 billion US dollars, which surpassed the US to become the world’s largest market. India and Russia, as well as in low-volume markets, such as Ukraine, Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey, the market demands for packaging equipment also have up space.

Although in some developed countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Japan, the demands for packaging equipment will be relatively slow, but will also have some growth. On the other hand, packaging equipment manufacturing industry will rise faster in developing countries, but the equipment manufacturing capacity is still led by the industrialized countries. In 2012, Western Europe, Japan and the United States will continue to occupy 2/3 of the packaging machinery manufacturing market.

Labeling and coding equipment will set a new record in the packaging market

Labeling and coding equipment will record the biggest sales of all packaging equipment, which thanks to the growing consumer of non-persistent label products, the voice of ensuring food safety rising and more norms of Labeling formulated by the industry.

Packaging equipment used in the production of pharmaceuticals and personal care products market will maintain rapid growth rate, due to the increase in equipment investment in developing countries, and the increasing use of disposable medical devices and an aging population in developed countries is even more serious. With the rapid increase of drug varieties, the market demand for packaging equipment is rising. Beverage packaging machinery market will show a sound momentum of development, as many developing countries’ consumption in beverage packaging products are growing, and greater use of more efficient, high-end packaging equipment, especially in the industrialized countries. The most interesting is that the field of food processing will continue to be the largest market of packaging equipment, and will account for 43% of global demand for packaging equipment in 2012.

According to the statistics, the global demand for packaging machinery is expected to grow at a rate of 5.3% per year. Packaging equipment manufacturers are mainly concentrated in the United States, Japan, Germany, Italy and China. According to the geographical, the foreign packaging machinery market demand is different.

The German packaging machinery is in the leading position in design, production, technical and other aspects; China is an important importer of packaging machinery for Germany, especially in food processing and packaging machinery. Major importers for German packaging machinery are the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia. German packaging machinery ranked first in the world by the share of 85%.

The development of packaging machinery in The United States is very long, has formed the independent and complete packing machinery system, its varieties and production both rank first in the world. Since the 1990s, the US packaging machinery industry has maintained a good momentum of development. The US packaging machinery factories attached to large packaging materials plant, sales are entirely dependent on the parent company.

Packaging machinery manufacturer in Japan are mainly small and medium enterprises, at present there are more than 200, also, there are more than 100 packaging materials, packaging machinery and related equipment manufacturers, packaging machinery varieties nearly 500 kinds and specifications over 700. Packaging machinery is mainly small and medium-sized single, with small size, high precision, easy installation, convenient operation, high degree of automation advantages.

Italy is the world’s fourth largest producer of packaging machinery, the second-largest exporter of packaging machinery. Italy packaging machinery has the characteristics of excellent performance and elegant appearance, and cheap. The proportion of exports accounted for about 80%; the United States is the largest export market.        (Source: China Machinery network of experts)
