Packaging Machinery Market Overview:
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), one-third of the food produced in the world (or 1.3 billion tons) gets wasted. Furthermore, these food losses amount to the loss of a whopping $680 billion in developed countries and $310 billion in the developing countries. To ameliorate this situation, food preservation or using packaged food has become an absolute necessity, which, in turn, is propelling the packaging machinery market which had a global market size of $39 billion to $40 billion according to the market research report by IndustryARC’s analyst. Moreover, the analyst estimates the packaging machinery market growth to be 4% to 5% over the course of forecast period 2019-2025.
China is the leading manufacturer of affordable consumer electronics that include mobile phones, tablets, and other gadgets. More countries in the APAC region such as India, Taiwan, and others are also making strides in the consumer electronics market. Now, these gadgets need packaging cartons which makes up for a remarkable demand for packaging machinery. There are other factors such as the domination of E-Commerce, considerable surge in industrialization and the seismic shift in the food packaging industry that are driving the packaging machinery market in APAC which bears 30% to 35% market share according to IndustryARC’s analyst.
Packaging Machinery Market Outlook:
A packaging machinery makes primary packages and then converts it into distribution packs through fabrication, cleaning, filling, sealing, combining, labeling, overwrapping, and palletizing, and it also requires heat sealers. There is a gamut of packaging machinery such as blister packs, skin packs, and vacuum packaging machines that find applications in various sectors such as F&B, pharmaceuticals & chemicals, cosmetics, and E-Commerce, and retail. Owing to the growing demand for packaged food and beverages, packaging machinery has major applications in F&B which will grow at a CAGR of 4% to 6% according to the estimation by IndustryARC’s analyst.
Packaging Machinery Market Growth Drivers:
- The Growth of E-Commerce Sector –
The E-commerce sector has observed an explosive growth in the past decade, and its market size is only going to escalate. According to the World Bank; China, India, Indonesia, and some other APAC countries are leading in the E-Commerce sector. Furthermore, Forbes has come up with statistics that the sales of the US E-Commerce grew by 16% in 2018 which translates to $453 billion. Now, this attributes to an enormous amount of goods ordered online which requires packaging cartons and wrappers. This further propels the packaging machinery market growth.
- The Sustainable Demand for Packaging from Pharmaceutical Industries –
The pharmaceutical industry is constantly growing with the global pharmaceutical market to reach $1,430 billion by 2020 according to the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Association. This means that there will be constant production of medicines and drugs in pharmaceutical industries across the globe. Now, these medicines need sophisticated packaging which further flourishes the packaging machinery market.
- The Need for Packaging In Cosmetics Coupled With Disposable Income Growth –
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimates that the household disposable income will grow from 1% to as much as 5.5% in most of the developed countries. Additionally, disposable income is also growing in developing companies. Now, people with disposable income spend a lot of cosmetics, and they are willing to pay for branded products that have attractive packaging. This is one of the game-changing factors that is driving the packaging machinery market growth.
