Global Automatic Palletizer and Depalletizer Market 2017-2021
About Automatic Palletizer and Depalletizer
Automatic palletizer is a machine that stacks cases of goods and products from a conveyor at the end of the production line onto a pallet for the ease of shipping and handling of goods. An automatic depalletizer is a machine that unloads products and goods from a loaded pallet. Palletizing systems can be semi-automatic or fully automatic. They reduce the lead time and increase the location accuracy in loading and unloading activities.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automatic palletizer and depalletizer market to grow at a CAGR of 4.71% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automatic Palletizer and Depalletizer Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automatic palletizer and depalletizer market: ABB, Columbia Machine, FANUC, KUKA, and Ouellette Machinery Systems.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A-B-C Packaging Machine, Adept Technology, American-Newlong, Arrowhead Systems, BEUMER Group, Brenton, C&D Skilled Robotics, Conveying Industries, Chantland MHS, Emmeti, Intelligrated, Krones, Möllers Group, Nachi Robotic Systems, and Schneider Packaging Equipment.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is rise in robotic material handling. Automation is an ideal solution to reduce maintenance cost considerably. All OEMs are concerned about the return on investment (ROI) on automation equipment employed in the industrial operation.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in line speed and efficiency. Generally, when products are manually handled, the lead time increases compared with automation. More lead time results in less production and revenue loss. A toolmaker Formenbau Kellermann GmbH (Neumarkt, Germany) reduced the lead time for handling and packaging by almost 20% with the help of a palletizing system.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high installation cost. The cost of a palletizer or a depalletizer equipment ranges from $1,09,000 to $2,36,800. Thus, investing such an amount only for packaging goods can be a barrier to adoption. Especially for small businesses, this investment becomes a major obstacle. The palletizing system consists of a palletizing robot, custom end of arm tooling, infeed and outfeed conveyor, pallet dispenser, safety fence, and HMI.
