Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cartoning Equipment Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cartoning equipment market: Bosch, ECONOCORP, RAMA, and LoeschPack.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ADCO Manufacturing, Bradman Lake, Douglas Machine, Kliklok-Woodman, Optima, PMI Cartoning, and Serpa Packaging Solutions.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is implementation of robotics. During the forecast period, industrial robots will be on the verge of revolutionizing the manufacturing processes. The use of robotics is a faster, smarter, and less expensive process in industries. Industrial robots can carry out more tasks that are well beyond traditional, repetitive, and dangerous processes such as welding and materials handling. Robots are taking on human capabilities such as sensing, memory, object recognition, and trainability. As a result, they are suitable for the cartoning equipment sector, which includes tasks such as picking and packaging, inspecting products, and assembling minute electronics.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing demand for low-cost equipment. There is a high demand from end-user industries for the cartoning equipment. This equipment is reliable, economical, and has small machine footprint. Since the replacement cost is high for a cartoning equipment, the factors mentioned above play a major role in the decision-making during the purchase of a cartoning equipment. A single cartoning machine can deliver various sizes of cartons. It can employ a range of materials, from the thinnest of paperboards to the heaviest of corrugated materials, to make varied types of cartons.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Sustainability of cartoning machinery. Manufacturers in the food industry are increasingly focusing on availing sustainable packaging machinery to reduce the consumption of materials and increase shelf life. Improvement in price-performance ratio, increasing the shelf life, and faster movement between packaging systems are the areas of focus.
