COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the supply chain of numerous sectors across the globe. The imposition of lockdown and a temporary ban on manufacturing units, along with the restrictions of imports & exports have significantly impacted the packaging machinery market in the initial phase of the pandemic. However, the increasing production of various medical gears like masks, PPE kits, and others, has positively impacted the demand of advanced packaging machinery.

Moreover, several manufacturers had to restrict their workforce at their manufacturing units owing to the regulations and rules imposed by the governments. Though, the deployment of advanced techniques by OEMs to boost production capacity would support the growth of the packaging machinery market over the forecast period. In the same way, the overall market is expected to witness bright growth prospects due to the surge in preference of consumers towards e-commerce channels due to the pandemic.

Market Growth Factors:

Growing demand for various packaged and convenient food products

With the changing lifestyle of consumers, the demand for convenient and packaged food products has significantly increased in the last few years. The busy schedule of consumers is motivating them to adopt ready-to-go food products, which would augment the growth of the packaging machinery market over the forecast period. In addition, the increasing population of working people would create more demand for packaged food and thus, contributing to the market growth.

Increasing concerns regarding the safety and hygiene of the products

With the increasing cases of various diseases along with the COVID-19 pandemic, people are becoming more concerned about the safety and sanitization of their products. In addition, manufacturers are increasingly using automated packaging machinery for ensuring the safety of their products. Packaging machinery helps in minimizing human touch, which reduces the chances of transmission of any disease, especially in the case of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Restraining Factor:

High cost and the technical failures of the packaging machinery would hinder the growth of the market

The overall cost of packaging machinery is quite high as it included the cost of manufacturing and the cost of implementation, due to this, several small and medium-sized manufacturing units would restrict themselves from adopting the automated and advanced packaging machinery. In addition, technical failures of such machinery would incur more expenses to the manufacturers, which would hamper the demand for packaging machinery.

End Use Outlook

Based on End Use, the market is segmented into Food, Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, Personal Care and Others. The food segment procured the highest revenue share in the market in 2020. The increasing number of product launches and the expansion in the retail network would fuel the demand for packaged food, which would further accelerate the growth of the market. The increasing consumption of beverages, expansion in the range of beverages, and the shifting preference of the consumers towards functional & organic beverages are some of the driving factors for the growth of the segment. The introduction of innovative and new products by various beverage manufacturers is estimated to fuel the demand for extremely advanced and flexible packaging machines to cater to these product portfolios.
