According to the survey, the global demand for packaging machinery is expected to grow at a rate of 5.3% per year, and this year will reach 29 billion US dollars. The United States is the world's largest producer of packaging equipment, followed by Japan, and other major producers include Germany, Italy and China. However, in 2005, the fastest growing production of packaging equipment was in developing countries and regions. Developed countries would benefit from stimulating domestic demand and seek investment in developing countries to find suitable local manufacturers to provide packaging machinery and equipment.
The French French packaging machinery market has grown steadily from 4% to 5% since 1998 and is currently the third largest packaging machinery market in Europe. The French packaging machinery industry is mainly composed of small and medium-sized highly specialized companies. The French market currently has a feature that the demand for flexible, versatile and automated machinery is growing. Most of the imported products from France come from the European Union, and products from the United States and Japan also account for a large proportion. French packaging machinery is mainly exported to EU countries, while the United States is one of the major non-EU markets for French packaging machinery.
Russia's Russian packaging machinery market capacity is 5 billion to 7 billion US dollars per year, of which only 20% of Russian manufacturers, and these manufacturers mainly produce semi-automatic equipment, and currently have no ability to meet the overall needs of the Russian packaging industry. Germany, Italy and Sweden are major importers of equipment. The most promising areas of packaging machinery market sales from 2002 to 2004 were the food industry, the beverage industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the personal care industry. The most promising packaging equipment requires high quality, universal applicability of packaging materials and medium price.
The US American packaging industry started in the early 20th century and quickly formed a complete and independent industrial system. The total industrial output value accounted for 3% of the national economic output. The packaging machinery that is currently promising in the United States is: horizontal pillow-type microcomputer control, packaging machinery equipped with a servo motor and a film tension good power control device. In the future, microelectronics, computers, industrial robots, smart, image sensing technology and new materials will be more and more widely used in packaging machinery, making packaging machinery trend toward automation, high efficiency and energy saving.
In Taiwan, Taiwan, China has been developing packaging machinery for more than 30 years. Under the export-oriented economic structure, the packaging machinery industry is accelerating and the demand for automation equipment is exploding. In recent years, the industry has undergone industrial transformation, and the industry has continuously changed its business model and has greatly improved its food packaging machinery technology. The demand for various packaging machinery will grow rapidly in the next few years.
There are more than 200 packaging machinery manufacturers in Taiwan, most of which are located in the central and northern regions. The vast majority of capital is less than 50 million Taiwan dollars, and the scale is mostly small and medium-sized enterprises of 30 or less. As the production scale of the industry is generally too small, it is difficult to raise funds, technologically transform and attract talents. The lack of technology and talents has led to the long-term dependence of key components on foreign manufacturers, and the quality of products is difficult to improve. Therefore, various types of machinery imports in Taiwan still need to be imported in the next few years.
Sullivan's market research report said that by 2007, the total market value of European packaging machinery is expected to increase from 4.6 billion US dollars in 2000 to 6.5 billion US dollars, the market potential is huge. Industries that traditionally do not use packaging systems will become new customers in the packaging machinery market.
The survey also pointed out that small manufacturers that used to purchase separate packaging machinery will gradually change to integrated packaging production lines, which will become potential users of such products, so in the future packaging machinery market, this packaging machinery The occupancy rate will be on the rise. On the other hand, OEM manufacturers and end consumers will tend to purchase packaging machinery that is easy to operate and easy to install, especially in the current manufacturing industry, where a large number of layoffs are required, and time-limit requirements are increasing, and the demand for simple operating systems will increase.
