Packaging Machinery: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US packaging machinery demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: filling and form/fill/seal; labeling and coding; case forming, packing, and sealing; wrapping, bundling, and palletizing; other packaging machinery such as accumulators, collators, and feeders; bottling and canning line equipment; and cartoning machinery; and packaging machinery parts. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: food; beverage; pharmaceuticals and personal care products; chemical products; and other markets such as durable manufacturing industries, transportation and distribution companies, and contract packagers.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; shipments and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

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 this 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.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. 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.
