Packaging Machinery

This study analyzes global supply and demand for packaging machinery. Types of machinery within the scope of the study include:

  • filling and form/fill/seal equipment (including standalone filling machines and integrated form/fill/seal equipment, and horizontal and vertical units)
  • labeling and coding machinery
  • wrapping equipment (including horizontal, vacuum, skin, and stretch film wrappers), bundling equipment, and palletizing equipment (including palletizing, depalletizing, and pallet unitizing machinery)
  • case forming, packing, and sealing machinery
  • other types of packaging machinery (such as accumulators, collators, and feeders; bottling and canning line equipment; cartoning machinery; and inspecting, detecting, and checkweighing equipment)
  • packaging machinery parts, including:
    • bearings
    • belts
    • chains
    • connectors
    • feeders
    • heating elements
    • knives
    • power units
    • pulleys
    • sensors
    • temperature indicators
    • wire

Demand is also analyzed by the following markets:

  • food
  • beverage
  • pharmaceuticals and personal care products
  • chemicals
  • other markets (nondurable manufacturing industries, durable manufacturing industries, transportation and distribution companies, contract packagers, and other service providers)

Historical data for 2008, 2013, and 2018, and forecasts for 2023 and 2028 are provided for shipments, demand by product type, and net exports of new packaging machinery on a country-by-country basis, valued in millions of current US dollars, including inflation. The term “demand” refers to “apparent consumption” and is defined as production (also referred to as “shipments”, “output”, or “supply”) from a nation’s domestic packaging machinery manufacturing facilities, plus imports, minus exports. It is used interchangeably with the terms “market”, “sales,” and “consumption.”
