According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the global end-of-line packaging market is expected to grow at noteworthy CAGR around 4 % throughout the forecast period and reach around US$ 6.4 billion by 2026.
An end-of-line solution for an industrial unit helps automate the whole process of production and packaging. Process automation in machinery helps to increase production for all industries and helps the demand to increase. Several companies competing in the global market want to upgrade their enterprises to increase productivity over the long run by transforming their manufacturing services. Industries like India, China, Malaysia and Korea implement automated manufacturing procedures in developing countries to address challenges such as labor shortages and cost optimization. End-of-line packaging eliminates training workers ' requirements. It allows companies to employ other valuable tasks in the work they can do.
A complete automation line is formed by automated end of line packaging machines together with control systems to produce products at a rate that allows these to be maintained on the market. The operators require semi-automatic end-of-line packaging machines to carry out several functions. Half-automatic end-of-line machinery are used to lower production rates. Semi-automatic mode is available with palletizers, case erectors, case packers and stretch wrappers.
The report provides analysis of global End-of-Line Packaging market for the period 2015-2026, wherein 2019 to 2026 is the forecast period and 2018 is considered as the base year.
The robot hands are rapidly introduced into packaging processes in order to enhance the efficiency of production. End-of-line robotic systems enhance the overall efficiency of production. End-of-line robotic systems also reduce physical tasks such as packaging, palletizing and picking. A robotic arm enables increased efficiency in production leading to high returns on investment and low operating costs. Robotic arms are particularly used in end-of-line packaging for lightweight packaging because it reduces the risk of damage. Key manufacturers in various industries are affected in the implementation of such systems through the inclusion of robotic arm automation in end-of-line packaging.
By function, the end-of-line packaging market is segmented as integrated and standalon. Standalone end-of-line packaging machines account for the highest share. Standalone machines are automatic or semi-automatic, which form a line without reliance on other machinery. New market entrants who want to conserve their cash flows normally choose self-contained machines. Integrated end-of-line packaging machinery forms a single packaging line, where all operations are linked with simulation software or control systems. An integrated end-of-line packaging system performs all operations such as carton erecting, palletizing, packing, stretch wrapping, sealing, and labeling. All operations such as palletizing, carton erection, packing, sealing, stretch wrapping and tagging are carried out by the integrated end-of-line packaging system.
The customized order segment is expected to show lucrative growth based on the order type received and is expected to be worth more than US$ 2.9 million by the year 2018. Progressively, end-of-line industries are opting for customized solutions for packaging. The share of the custom order segment is therefore expected to increase by 2026. As industries opt for standardized solutions to improve end-of-line packaging efficiency, an increase in demand is expected from the received order type segment during the forecast period.
Europe's consumers seek a wider range of price, convenience and quality options. In developed countries such as Italy, Germany, France and UK, the automated end-of line packaging machinery industry is mature and is expected to grow slowly, or modestly, over the forecast period. End-of-line packing solutions for food, pharmaceutical and electronics and automobile packaging include the automated segment. In 2026, both the value and volume of automated end-of-line packaging are estimated to be the highest market share.
During the forecast period, the European end-of-line packaging market is estimated at 3.3% of CAGRs. More production, functionality and more safe handling are demanded. There is a high demand. End-of-line machinery automation can help to address these rising demands. Automation supporting end users in Europe is incorporated by machine manufacturers by minimizing the operability of end-of-line packaging machines and handling. The transition from semi-automatic end-of-line to fully automated end-of-line solutions leads to higher automation levels such as machine views, security controls and even remote monitoring. The demand for end-of-line packaging machines in Europe will be influenced by these factors.
In Asia the industrialization and urbanization have rapidly upgraded the manufacturing industry. In the emerging markets of Asia such as India, Malaysia and China many manufacturers and brand owners have been attracted. The key sectors of extraction of raw materials, manufacturing and services are growing in companies from countries such as China, India and Japan. Due to increased demand for quality products, the Chinese end-of-line packaging market is expected to grow substantially during the forecast period.
China was the main focus of production for the food & pharmaceutical sector of electronic and high-volume products. Because of the raw material supply and cost optimisation, major end-of-line packaging machine manufacturers and brand owners are trying to transfer their production sites to emerging locations. End-of-line packaging is delivered by companies in Asia Pacific with a focus on packaging equipment, which lowers footprint, costs and work. As of now, the focus of existing end-of-line packaging players is largely on increasing efficiency, and only a few companies have lower-needed products. The end-of-line Asia Pacific packaging market is the highest value CAGR. The end-of-line Asia-Pacific market for packaging is estimated at approximately 6 percent CAGR over the forecast period.
