Equipment Insights

On the basis of equipment, the food packaging equipment market is categorized into form-fill-seal, filling and dosing, cartoning, case packing, wrapping and bundling, and others. The availability of skilled labor for automatic packaging equipment was scarce earlier, so the costs associated with them were high. In addition, manufacturers opted for manual or semi-automatic machinery, as an economical option. However, after digitization of the industry, manufacturers prefer automation in their processes as it increases the efficiency and quality of the product.

The need to offer precise, standard, and quality product to have a competitive advantage in the market, manufacturers offer automated operational systems for equipment manufacturing. The filling and dosing equipment is anticipated to emerge dominant and grow significantly over the forecast period. These machines are used in a varied range of products and applications facilitating the segment growth at a significant CAGR. 

Application Insights

Dairy products led the application segment in 2017, accounting for 20.36% of the market share. Short shelf life of perishable food products including dairy, dairy alternatives, and allied products makes them susceptible to contamination, pollution, and climatic changes; driving the market growth.
