Heavy Demand for Hybrid Palletizers to Aid Market Growth
The changing necessities from the packaging industry have resulted in the advancement of the hybrid machinery. The hybrid structure makes it cost-effective machinery that additional expenses including, troubleshooting, hardware maintenance, etc. It positions cases upright before layer formation. This, in turn, allows machinery in conveying products easily. Additionally, it reduces the complex robot controllers need that eventually maintains a standard control platform of a conventional machinery. Also, the leading manufacturers such as Honeywell Intelligrated, Schneider Packaging Equipment Company, Inc., and others are focusing on hybrid technology to expand their product portfolio. For instance, Honeywell Intelligrated’s ‘750 Hybrid’, is a mid-speed product for handling cartons, bags, and other packaging types.
Popularity of Human Machine Interface (HMI) is propelling the Market Growth
Nowadays, the human-machine interface (MHI) is controlling the world of the manufacturing sector. It is reconfiguring the palletizers for handling pallet patterns, multiple product layers, and various case sizes. Robotic palletizing safeguards constant motion at the end of the line process; thus, increases the output and decreases downtime of these machines. This very factor compliments the evolution of HMI in palletizing processing. Also, the manufacturers are intensifying their marketing strategies to shift towards automated machinery to achieve higher production rates. For instance, in August 2019, PremierTech collaborated with Bühler Group to develop industrial flexible packaging solutions including, automated food-safe bagging, palletizing, and other solutions. Both companies are working together to build a manufacturing plant in China by 2020.
Excessive Initial Investments in Manufacturing to Impede the Market Growth
The capital expenditure required for research & development and manufacturing processes at the initial stage is primarily hampering the market growth. The manufacturers are anticipated to make large investments in manufacturing technologically advanced palletizing machinery. Additionally, it requires periodic maintenance for their efficient operations, incurring high after-sales services cost to the manufacturers. Small and medium-sized manufacturers find it challenging to incorporate the unnecessary maintenance cost. This, in turn, is hindering the global market growth.
