Gains will be led by manufacturing output as consumption of Chinese goods grows, and the
development of e-commerce will allow producers’ efforts to distribute to more areas in China.
Demand to increase 7.5%
per annum through 2016
Demand for packaging machinery in
China is forecast to rise 7.5 percent per
annum to ¥40 billion in 2016. Advances
will be led by growth in manufacturing
output as consumption of Chinese goods
grows both internationally and domestically.
The development of e-commerce
in China and producers’ efforts to expand
distribution to more areas in China
will lead to the greater consumption of
packaging, resulting in growth of associated
packaging machinery sales. In
addition, the intensity of packaging use
in China will continue to rise for both
functional and aesthetic reasons, further
driving demand for packaging machinery.
More stringent safety and hygiene
standards for food, beverage, and
medical products will drive demand for
more advanced packaging equipment.
However, government efforts to conserve
resources by reducing packaging
material and restrictions related to overpackaging
will limit growth through 2016.
equipment largest type
Filling and form/fill/seal equipment will
continue to be the largest product segment
in value terms in 2016. Suppliers
will benefit from increasing consumption
of packaged food and beverages in
China as lifestyles continue to change in
line with rising personal income levels.
Demand for these types of machinery
will also grow due to the development of
the pharmaceutical industry and
improved medical technology. Demand
for labeling and coding equipment is expected
to record the strongest advances
of any packaging machinery product.
Gains will be aided by stricter product
labeling requirements in the food and
beverage industries in China.
Trends in food and beverage markets
have the largest effect on overall
packaging machinery sales. Gains are
fore-cast to advance faster than the
industry average through 2016.
Improving income levels and urban
lifestyle trends will continue to stimulate
growth. Demand for machinery used to
package medical, pharmaceutical, and
personal care products is expected to
expand at the fastest rate through 2016,
due to an aging population and growing
demand for pharmaceutical products, as
personal income levels rise and access
to healthcare grows.
Central-East region to
remain market leader
Packaging machinery demand among
the regions in China varies, mainly due
to differing manufacturing activity. Sales
in the Central-East will allow the region
to remain the largest single market for
packaging machinery through 2016.
Regional advances will be driven by
rapid growth in manufacturing output, a
result of a well established economic
base, developed transportation infrastructure,
large industrial investment,
and favorable government policies.
Demand for packaging machinery in the
Northeast is expected to post the fastest
growth of any region through 2016, with
gains primarily stimulated by the government’s
Northeast Revitalization policy.
This study analyzes the 27.8 billion yuan packaging machinery industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by machinery type (e.g., filling and form/fill/seal; labeling and coding; wrapping, bundling and palletizing), market (e.g., food; beverages; medical, pharmaceutical and personal care products; chemical products) and geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry participants, including Shanghai Tobacco Machinery, Nanjing Light Industrial Machinery Group, and Bosch.
