Fastest Growing Market


According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Packaging Automation Market is accounted for $61.50 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $1118.33 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period. Packaging automation refers to the packaging procedure without any human assistance. Packaging automation can range from a single piece of equipment to a standard method or an entire packaging line. It is a smart approach to eliminate unnecessary tasks and therefore allowing the manufacturing or packaging companies to perform more tasks with less assets. 

Market Dynamics:


Implementation of advanced packaging solutions

Increasing demand for advanced packaging solutions because of the increase in the disposable incomes combined with the rise in the standard of living, which is increasing the demand for packaging solutions to ensure the durability and life span of the products during shipment. These factors are encouraging manufacturers in the field of various industries to implement advanced packaging solutions to speed up their production and to implement the idea of mass production. Additionally, the organizations are adopting smart technologies in the packaging of goods because of the rise in the requirement for supply chain integration. 


High cost

Implementation of automated packaging solutions, including packaging machines involve high expenses on the manufacturers is restraining the market growth. The combination of advanced technologies and the necessity for skilled labor will expand the overall costs for these machines. Also, regular and continuous operation of the machines need proper and periodic maintenance, resulting in extra expenses.


Technological advancements

With the increasing technological advancements, the need and necessity for machines with intelligent packing, IoT technology, and smart sensors are expanding. IoT enabled packaging automation machines empower remote monitoring, evaluation, and control of the processes and functions that can be worked utilizing smartphones, PCs, and laptops. This innovation enables managers and operators to estimate the effectiveness and reliability in the process of these automated products. Moreover, they help in identifying the faults and correcting them by remote controlling of the machines and providing important commands to activate or deactivate a function of the machine, which is providing ample opportunities for the growth of the market.


Stringent government regulations

Safeguarding is very essential for safeguarding employees from unnecessary and preventable injury. Presence of stringent government regulations about employees safety during the utilization of automated packing procedures in the industry is acting as a challenge to the industry growth.

The capping segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The capping segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as this equipment is experiencing popularity in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industry for packing small plastic parts. Organizations working in these industries are introducing automatic capping machine in their production facilities to accelerate the production process and to acquire accuracy in their systems. In addition, rising personal care and beauty product sales in developing countries are encouraging players to implement automated packaging systems, especially for lotions, soaps, and other skincare products, thus driving the segment in the packaging automation market growth.

The automated conveyors & sortation systems segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The automated conveyors & sortation systems segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as the introduction of automated conveyors in the production line assists in the efficient transportation of equipment or materials to each production station. With the expansion in the usability of these machines, the demand for packaging automation market will increase. Organizations are adopting these advanced solutions in the warehouse and distribution processes for packaging goods and to improve the quality and speed.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the rising industrialization and expanding penetration of these devices in the manufacturing activities in the countries. Favorable government initiatives for the improvement of infrastructure and the adoption of advanced innovations will additionally propel the market growth in the region. Furthermore, the presence of established players and easy availability of raw material are boosting technological innovations of the market in this region.
