Emergence of Automation and Robotics in Filling Machine is a Prominent Trend

Automated machinery increases the satisfaction for higher levels of safety, productivity, and functionality. They increase throughput by minimizing the required manual operation and enhance flexibility of the machinery, thereby offering easy packaging changes while operating the machine. Automation helps to trace the ongoing operation and detects flaws through machine-to-machine communication and software that is connected to the machinery in the factory to the enterprise level. Robotics is becoming a primary automated variant for processing and packaging applications. The usage of robotics has significantly increased over the last decade in the packaging industry, mainly for pick and place applications. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), in the year 2019, the incorporation of robotics in the packaging sector showed 15% of annual growth. Implementation of robotics minimizes scrap and waste material by providing higher throughput rate, greater precision, and consistency, hence becoming a key market trend.


Increasing Consumer Driven Product Variation is Driving the Market

The key manufacturers in the filling machines market are opting for innovative techniques to offer products according to the customers’ preferences. Customers across the world are changing their preferences to the easily available and small portion of products. Right from personal care products and cosmetics, to food and beverage products, customers prefer hygienic and quality products that are travel friendly with packaging in portion size. Many key packaging brands are diversifying their product portfolio by modifying the packaging formats, thus aiming to satisfy the demand of their diversified customer base. Growing health consciousness owing to the busy lifestyles is driving the demand for convenience and single portion food products, resulting in the adoption of advanced filling machine. Henceforth, the key market brands would tend towards offering small portion and hygienic packaged products to their customers, thus driving the market globally.

Rising Adoption of Standardization and Modularity Techniques to Uplift Growth

Standardization and modularity play an important role in the packaging industry as they help to set a specific standard packaging process with numerous applications. Several multinational filling equipment manufacturers are following the stringent government regulations and adopting standardized machinery in the packaging plants. Such machineries offer low price and rational purchasing activity to the end-users and simultaneously achieve the safety standards set by the government on a global scale. In the current market scenario, the end-users of filling machinery are looking forward to a multi-function machine that can offer molding, filling, sealing, and labeling processes. This trend is expected to witness an increase in throughput of the key market players, henceforth becoming a major driving factor for this global market.


High Capital and Maintenance Cost to Hinder Growth Globally

Setting up the packaging industry requires high capital investments due to the high prices of the machineries. As most of the packaging companies are adopting modular filling equipment that offers sealing and labeling simultaneously, the overall maintenance cost would hike exponentially, thus restraining the market growth. Initial purchasing cost of this machine depends on the size and the number of operations that will be offered by the equipment. As per the secondary study, the average cost of smaller filling machine in the United States ranges from USD 1,500 to USD 2,500, wherein the larger machines cost USD 8,000 to USD 100,000. Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, packaging industries are facing severe economic issues for maintaining these machines, wherein startup companies are restricted in purchasing these machines owing to the high capital investments. It would thus hamper the filling machine market growth.


By Type Analysis

Liquid Filling Segment to Hold Highest Market Share in the Forecast Period

On the basis of type, the global market is segmented into liquid filling, solid filling, powder filling, and others.

The liquid filling segment is anticipated to hold the highest market share owing to the large amount of liquid product manufacturing in industrial sectors such as beverages, chemicals, pharmaceutical drugs, cosmetic products, and many more. Beverages, milk, cosmetics, personal care products, liquid medicines, and chemicals are packed into several types of attractive packaging solutions that are anti-corrosive, offering safe and hygienic products.

The solid filling segment is projected to exhibit progressive market growth due to large amount of production of food items. Increasing population rate across the world and changing lifestyles are raising the demand for convenience food products.

The powder filling segment is expected to depict stagnant growth due to limited consumption of powdered food products, chemicals, or personal care products. The others segment is likely to show steady growth due to limitations in semi-solid substance filling process and their need for safety products such as medical vials, syringes, and capsules.

The rising consumption of packaged distilled water in the East Asian countries market including China, Japan, South Korea, and many more is expected to attribute to this market growth in the coming years. Developing countries such as China and India have the highest ratio of population growth with the rising number of working population. This directly impacts the consumption rate of packaged food products and other personal care products across the region, thus exhibiting the highest growth rate. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Asia Pacific constitutes 60% of the total world’s population. Nearly 4.3 billion of people come from the world’s most populated countries, namely, China and India. Therefore, in the current scenario of COVID-19, the consecutive demand for packaged products is expected to portray steady growth across the region.

The Middle East and Africa filling machine market is expected to show progressive growth owing to the ongoing development projects carried out by the government. The Saudi Vision 2030 is focusing over the development of education, infrastructure, tourism, and recreation sectors, thereby leading to an increase in the demand for safe and healthy packaged products. Development in several sectors inclines the customer preferences towards hygienic food, beverage, and other personal care products, thus enhancing the demand for this machine across these developed regions. As per the World Tourism Organization (WTO), the Middle East and North Africa welcomed around 87 million international tourists in 2018 and earned USD 77 billion from the international tourism.

Furthermore, the demand for tourism in Europe is expected to decline in the near future owing to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The economy of several European countries is maintained by their tourism activities which also increases the demand for convenience products to cater to the needs of the international tourists. Additionally, COVID-19 would result in the negative impact over the North American economy as well. As per the United States National Restaurant Association, it was projected that the restaurant industry’s sales in 2020 would hike up to USD 899 billion. Thus, it would lead to moderate market growth for the packaged products with average demand for these machines.
