The packaging machinery market is segmented across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle-East and Africa and Latin America.

Amongst all the regions, Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share, owing to the huge investments in the manufacturing sector from the developing countries. The governments of India and China are focused on investing in the manufacturing sector to attract domestic and international consumers. Furthermore, the markets in North America and Europe are estimated to grow steadily in the coming future, owing to the less adoption of new packaging Machinery from the existing customers. This is because the companies that are using such machinery do not purchase new machines in a short time period, as the life span of packaging machinery is around 8 – 12 years. Therefore the packaging machinery industry is growing steadily with the increase in the growth of the overall packaging industry.
