Global Packaging Machinery

This report forecasts to 2023 global demand for packaging machinery by product, market, and major world region in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Product segments include: filling and form/fill/seal machinery; labeling and coding machinery; wrapping, bundling, and palletizing machinery; case forming, packing, and sealing machinery; other packaging machinery, such as collators, bottling and canning machinery, and checkweighing machinery; and packaging machinery parts. Reported markets encompass: food; beverages; pharmaceuticals and personal care products; and other markets, including chemicals, textiles, paper, and durable goods. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, product, market, and regional demand (including product and market segments) are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018. Finally, global shipments are segmented by major world region and provided for 2008, 2013, 2018, and 2023.

Machinery that is used to manufacture packaging products, rather than to package end use products, is excluded from the scope of this report. Also excluded from the scope of the report are certain products sometimes considered to be packaging machinery, including converting equipment (like blow molders, can making machinery, extruders, and other equipment used to form packages, unless an integral part of a packaging machine such as form/fill/seal equipment) and associated line equipment like conveyors. Used packaging machines of all types and related services such as equipment rebuilding, retrofitting, and systems integration are excluded from the scope.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2018.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
