Demand for packaging machinery in China is forecast to increase 7.5 percent per annum to 40 billion yuan in 2016. Advances will be stimulated by growth in manufacturing output as consumption of Chinese goods increases 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 increased consumption of packaged goods, 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 relating to over-packaging will limit growth through 2016. These and other trends are presented in Pack

While this prediction falls below the rapid construction growth China experienced between 2006 and 2011, it is still above expectations for other major national construction markets, Freedonia said. The research company added that China's construction growth, though thwarted by a slowdown in its general economy, will be fueled by ongoing urbanization and industrialization, rebounding foreign investment funding, rising personal income levels, and further population and household growth. Construction expenditures in China are almost evenly split among the residential building and nonresidential building and non-building segments, which combined for 10.8 trillion yuan ($1.7 trillion) in 2011. Total construction spending is expected to reach 16.4 trillion yuan ($2.6 trillion) in 2016.

Gli investimenti nell’industria delle costruzioni in Cina aumenteranno dell’8,8% annuo (in termini reali) fino al 2016. Crescita sì ma a un ritmo leggermente inferiore rispetto al quinquennio 2006-2011 e in ogni caso sempre superiore a quelli dei principali mercati nazionali del settore costruzioni. I processi di industrializzazione e urbanizzazione in corso, l’afflusso di investimenti esteri, l’aumento del reddito individuale e la crescita ulteriore della popolazione e delle famiglie sono i fattori determinanti del fenomeno che viene contenuto dal previsto rallentamento per l’economia cinese. Queste e altre tendenze sono rappresentate all’interno dello studio “Construction Outlook in China” redatto dalla filiale di Pechino dell’Istituto di ricerche The Freedonia Group, Inc.
