Demand for packaging equipment in China will grow 8.6 percent annually through 2009. Gains will be driven by growth in manufacturing, packaging materials use and related fixed investment as industrialization continues and incomes rise. Labeling and coding equipment will grow the fastest, followed by form/fill/seal machinery.
This study analyzes the 23.8 ($2.9) billion Chinese packaging machinery industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by packaging machinery product (e.g., liquid and dry filling, form/fill/seal, wrapping and bundling, palletizing; labeling, coding, dating and marking, cartoning, case forming, packing and sealing); by market (e.g., food, beverages, medical and personal care products, chemical products); and by Chinese geographic region.
The study also considers market environment indicators, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 major players including Shanghai Tobacco Machinery, Kloeckner-Werke, GD, Guangdong No. 2 Light Industrial Machinery, Krones, Guangzhou Tech-Long Packing Machineries, Bosch, and Hunan Chinasun Pharmaceutical Machinery.
