Market Trends of Packaging Automation Industry

Food End-User Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Packaging automation in the food industry is an essential aspect of streamlining operations, ensuring product quality, and meeting the increasing demands of consumers. Automation in food packaging processes can significantly increase efficiency and productivity. Automated systems can handle filling, sealing, labeling, and palletizing tasks, allowing faster and more consistent packaging operations. It leads to higher production rates and reduced labor requirements.
  • In many sectors, automation changed the game, and the processing and packaging of food and beverages are no exception. Robotics solutions are available for all packaging lines, from straightforward pick and drop operations to intricate processes like can, pouch, or packet manufacturing. Automation completely changed how packaging is done in this business, resulting in more productivity, lower prices, and better quality. Even cheap candies go through many food packaging stages using cutting-edge machinery.
  • Additionally, Machinery manufacturers are focusing on controls-based collaboration. In May 2023, Rotzinger, a Swiss OEM packaging machinery manufacturer, a maker of equipment for food, beverage, and cosmetic industries, and CoreTigo, a supplier of industrial wireless automation, presented an intriguing controls-based partnership at Interpack last month. With the integration of CoreTigo's IO-Link wireless products and technology into Rotzinger's cutting-edge packaging equipment, new and sophisticated capabilities are created that are driving maximum flexibility, throughput, and sustainability.
  • Further, increasing R& D spending by food companies to enhance their product and implement automation to improve product hygiene and profit through economies of scale, extended shelf life, and cost reduction are expected to boost packaging automation. According to Campbell Soup's annual report 2022, the company increased its R& D spending to USD 87 million in 2022 from USD 84 million in 2021. All such factors are expected to support market growth.
Packaging Automation Market: Number of Frozen Food Manufacturing Establishments

North America is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • The United States is one of the developed packaging markets in North America. Large packaging companies, such as Amcor Ltd, Mondi PLC, etc., drive investments in innovation and R&D activities. The region is witnessing increased spending on advanced packaging technologies to boost productivity, reduce labor costs, and enable greater packaging customization. A strong interest in providing packaging that is viewed as sustainable is also encouraging companies to invest in new machines.
  • Furthermore, the United States boasts a solid packaging machinery export base, contributing to its growth. Companies like Bosch Packaging Services have expanded their businesses by investing in various packaging sectors, such as confectionery, bakery, fresh food, frozen food, and pharmaceutical.
  • Further, systems like (ICT) technology are the intelligent alternative to existing mechanics' throughput and physical limitations. The MagneMove Lite system from Rockwell Automation is helping higher-SKU operations efficiency by moving payloads faster and more flexibly than traditional conveyors do.
  • Canada's packaging industry is looking to make more efficient use of production lines with small automated components, such as remote vision sensors, and advancements in automation, which are being realized with Industry 4.0 applications. For example, AI/ ML technology can be used for packaging facilities that do not have the space to invest in the more prominent styles of automation machinery. For instance, the remote sensor can be placed far from the target to be inspected; with increased resolution, the target's space is featured correctly and can be examined remotely without human intervention.
