Packaging automation is the procedure of packaging a product without any human aid. The adoption of packaging automation decreases reliance on labor, enhances packaging efficiency, and thus propels global market growth. As automated machines for packaging increase the efficiency and productivity in the manufacturing processes and lower the cost of packaging, they are in high demand in many end-use industries. Increasing demand for improving productivity, rapid industrialization, and the expanding use of automation drive the global packaging automation market growth. With the augmenting technological advancements, the need for machines enabled with intelligent packing is increasing, leading to manufacturers' launch of innovative technologies.

  • For instance, on May 2022, ULMA Packaging announced the display of TSA 400, a recently-developed compact tray sealer, at IFFA 2022. The TSA 400 is designed as a versatile machine that can work effectively in SKIN, MAP, LEAFSKINTM, and LEAFMAPTM applications. The tray sealer holds a compact footprint and a high-speed output of just 2.3 meters, making it significant for tight layouts.

  • On November 2021, Crawford Packaging launched the most advanced seal packaging machinery, Evolution S. It is a new high-speed tray sealing machine manufactured by Packaging Automation Ltd., which can seal up to 250 packs per minute in a single-lane format.

A rapid increase in disposable incomes and the rise in the standard of living has augmented the demand for sturdy packaging solutions to ensure the longevity & durability of the products during transit. Such factors encourage manufacturers in e-commerce & logistics, healthcare, food & beverage, and many other industries to use advanced packaging solutions for speedy and mass production. The rapid production and rising safety concerns among the manufacturers for the workers also drive the market growth.

The high capital cost and maintenance required for automated packaging systems are the key factors restraining the growth of packaging automation. Moreover, continuous and regular operation of such machines needs proper and periodic maintenance, thus resulting in additional costs. Additionally, the strict government regulations regarding worker safety while using automated packing techniques also hampers the market growth.


COVID-19 harmed the global packaging automation market. Large-scale supply chain disruptions that led to halting production were observed in the early stages of the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing manufacturers in the packaging industry to rethink their existing business models. However, with the increasing concerns about workers' safety and awareness regarding health, the market is accelerated in the post-pandemic era. Additionally, the pandemic boosted the adoption of robotic packaging automation processes such as wraparound packaging.
