Global packaging machinery demand will grow 4.9 percent annually through 2010. Developing regions will grow the fastest as industrialization continues, incomes rise and packaged goods production grows. Developed markets, notably the US and Japan, will show renewed strength. Labeling and coding equipment will lead gains.
This study analyzes the $26.2 billion world packaging machinery industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by packaging machinery type (e.g., filling and form/fill/seal; labeling and coding; wrapping, bundling and palletizing; case forming, packaging and sealing); by market (e.g., food, beverages, pharmaceuticals/personal care products, chemical products); by world region and for 32 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 37 major players including Krones, Kloeckner-Werke, Bosch, Dover, Illinois Tool Works, Tetra Laval, IWKA, and Coesia.
