China has the largest share in Asia-Pacific packaging automation market, followed by Japan and India. The growth in this market is attributed to growth in economies, robust credit growth and steady growth in labor markets across this region. China, India and Japan are the world’s leading exporters. China exported more than USD 2 trillion worth of goods around the world in the recent years. These exports vary from industrial goods to homecare and stationery. This enormous expansion is a result of growth in the packaging industry boosted by the automated packaging methods.

The emergence of Asian market has resulted in drastic changes in the dynamics of manufacturing and production across Europe and North America. The availability of cheap labor has enabled companies in these regions to achieve increased productivity with lesser capital investments. As a result of this global nature of business, companies are able to claw deep into the market share of players from the developed economies and they are now facing a severe brunt.

Competition in the marketplace is forcing manufacturers to implement effective cost cutting measures. Adopting cost cutting measures means automating different manual processes and increasing the level of semi-automation process.

Processes like filling, labeling, bagging, palletizing, capping and other several stages of packaging have been automated in many parts of the world. No more manual intervention is required for these processes. Enterprises manufacturing products like food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care, beverages and even warehouses are increasingly using such automation solutions to streamline their business processes as well as reduce operating costs.

PC based automation, integrated automation environment and motion sensing technology are some key trends in this market. The integration of the packaging process by incorporating techniques like machine to machine communication will ensure enhanced automation process and effective packaging.
