How choosing the right packaging machine can impact your ROI

Posted by Carla Colwell

The packaging industry is growing fast, driven by sustainability and innovation and the development of machinery, particularly in the area of automation. There are more opportunities for packaging businesses in this modern, technology-driven sector today than ever before, and implementing the latest machinery can help boost the bottom line and bring faster ROI. 

According to industry reports, the packaging industry is set to continue to increase over the next few years, with predictions reaching growth of 2.9%. In real terms, this translates into a staggering $980 billion in packaging demand by 2022. With the packaging machinery sector taking the lead, currently valued at almost $37 billion and estimated to reach more than $42 billion by the end of 2021, it is clear to see where the largest opportunities lie for companies around the world, especially within emerging markets.


Reducing the cost of the packaging line

When automation is introduced to the packaging processes, there are many benefits to be realised for companies of all sizes. As the cost of manual and environmental resources rises around the world, automation offers a chance to not only streamline processes and increase production, but also to reduce the reliance on resources across the board.

The latest packaging machines, whether automated or semi-automated are much more energy-efficient than in more traditional set-ups. Reduced energy consumption can equate to reduced cost in addition to the environmental advantages of a reduced carbon footprint.
