The global automatic in motion checkweighers market size was valued at USD 191.2 million in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 197.4 million in 2023 to USD 272.3 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.

An automatic in motion checkweigher is used to weigh products under dynamic conditions. These checkweighers transport the products through the production line, weigh them through the transport weighing platform, and remove unqualified products from the production line through the blower rejector. They can check the weight of a moving product 100% automatically.

These checkweighers are generally installed at the back end of production lines, such as production instruments and automatic packaging. The purpose is to dynamically weigh and count product weights, perform sorting, prevent defective products from leaving the factory, and protect consumers while analyzing measurement data for further management of production. The automatic in motion checkweigher can also feed data back to the production equipment. By controlling the production equipment in this way, it can prevent unnecessary loss of raw materials.


Demand For In Motion Checkweighers Increased Due to Introduction of Safety Standards during Pandemic

The pandemic caused disruptions in the global supply chain, impacting the production and delivery of automatic in motion checkweighers. Restrictions on transportation, shortage of raw materials, and temporary closure of manufacturing facilities led to delays and challenges in meeting customer demands. Manufacturers faced difficulties in sourcing components, resulting in extended lead times and reduced production capacities.

However, during the pandemic, industries, such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare experienced a surge in demand for their products. The increased production volume necessitated stringent quality control measures, including accurate weighing processes. Automatic in motion checkweighers became essential tools for these industries to ensure accurate and efficient weighing, leading to an increased demand for these systems.


Expansion of Emerging Markets and Integration of Industry 4.0 to Boost Market Growth

Adopting Industry 4.0 principles and automation in manufacturing and logistics environments is presenting opportunities for automatic in-motion weight checkers. Integration with other innovative factory technologies, such as robotics, conveyor, and production management systems can create a seamless and highly efficient production line.

The ability of automatic in motion checkweighers to provide real-time data and integrate with centralized control systems improves process optimization, inventory management, and supply chain visibility. The digitalization trend is driving the development of advanced features in weight checkers, including real-time monitoring, remote access, and predictive maintenance capabilities.

Increased Emphasis on Quality Control to Bolster Market Growth

Industries, such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing place a strong emphasis on quality control to ensure product integrity and customer satisfaction. Automatic in motion checkweighers play a vital role in quality control processes by accurately weighing products and identifying any deviations or anomalies.

In the food & beverage industry, for example, maintaining consistent product weights is essential for packaging and pricing accuracy. Overweight or underweight products can lead to customer dissatisfaction, regulatory non-compliance, and financial losses. Automatic in-motion weight checkers ensure that products are weighed accurately and within the specified limits, thereby reducing the risk of delivering non-compliant products to the market.

Similarly, in the pharmaceutical industry, ensuring precise weight measurement of active ingredients in medications is critical for product efficacy, patient safety, and regulatory compliance. Automatic in-motion weight checkers help pharmaceutical manufacturers monitor and control the weight of individual tablets, capsules, or vials, ensuring that they meet the required standards. This factor is contributing toward the automatic in motion checkweighers market growth.


Limited Applicability in Certain Industries to Hinder Market Development

Some industries deal with fragile or delicate products that cannot withstand the speed and handling of in-motion weighing systems.

  • For example, industries that handle glassware, fine china, or sensitive electronic components may require more gentle and controlled weighing methods to prevent damage or breakage. In such cases, alternative weighing techniques, such as static weighing on dedicated scales or specialized enclosures may be preferred over in-motion weight checkers.

Specific industries require non-contact or volumetric measurements instead of weight-based measurements.

  • For instance, industries dealing with powders, granules, or liquids may prioritize volumetric measurements, such as fill level, volume, or density, rather than relying solely on weight. In-motion weight checkers are primarily designed for weight-based measurements. Although they can indirectly provide volumetric information, there may be more suitable options for industries prioritizing non-contact or volumetric measurements.

Industries with unconventional packaging or product formats may face challenges with automatic in motion checkweighers. If a business deals with irregularly shaped products, oversized items, or non-standard packaging, achieving accurate and consistent weight measurements with in-motion weight checkers may be challenging. Alternative weighing methods, such as manual or specialized weighing equipment tailored to unique formats may be more suitable.


By Capacity

12 to 60 Kg Checkweighers to Gain Major Traction Due to Accuracy & High Weighing Range

Based on capacity, the market is divided into up to 12 kg checkweigher, 12 to 60 kg checkweigher, and above 60 kg checkweigher. The up to 12 kg checkweigher segment is dominating the market due to the presence of regulations and countless codes of practice for inspection of goods and checking their weight. This is to ensure that all commodities in the manufacturing line are weighed precisely and follow the industry’s packaging standards.

The 12 to 60 kg checkweigher is witnessing fastest growth in terms of CAGR and market share. This growth is attributed to the accuracy of the equipment. Any weighing instrument has two potential points of error that will affect the apparatus and accuracy. First is repeatability, followed by exactness to a known mass, such as a calibrated weight. A 12 to 60kg capacity checkweigher reduces the chance of error due to its high weighing range for any product.
