Moreover, cosmetic industry is moving forward to adopt multifunctional packaging machinery that could help them achieving attractive packaging along with filling, tagging, and capping of beauty products on a single machine. These advanced packaging machinery are likely to replace the traditional packaging machinery in cosmetic industry and is expected to create new opportunity for advanced packaging machinery during the forecast period 2019-2025.
Packaging Machinery Market Challenges
High cost of the machine:
The companies operating in packaging industry are facing intense cost pressure due to rise in raw material prices. Further, highly fragmented nature of this industry reduces the profit margin of the companies. Thus, large companies use advanced packaging machinery to differentiate their service from small and medium companies. However, due to high cost, small and medium company find it difficult to buy advanced packaging machinery. These companies mostly prefer to take the machine on rent rather than buying it. Moreover, due to frequent obsoletion of technology, many packaging company consider the rent as the most economically viable option. This reduces the market opportunity for advanced packaging machinery products.
Packaging machinery market is moderately concentrated with top 5 players holding approximately 50% market share. Key vendors operating in this market are using product feature, reliability, and service as the key ingredients to differentiate their products from small and medium manufacturers.
