Tissue Packaging Machines: Market Growth Not to be Sneezed At
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the demand for tissues and other paper hygiene products has soared, taking the sector to new heights over the past two years. According to recent market reports, the global tissue and paper packaging market is expected to continue expanding at a CAGR of 4.7% over the next five years.
With this projected and actual growth not to be sneezed at, we take a closer look at how tissue manufacturers are harnessing the opportunities.
The key drivers
Growth across the tissue packaging market is being driven by rising demand for paper hygiene products since the start of the pandemic in almost every corner of the world. While primarily led by toilet roll, tissues come in very closely behind.
The driving factor in the speed of this market share expansion includes the sharp rise in demand for high capacity, high-speed tissue packaging machines. These delicate products are traditionally hard to handle and innovations in specialist tissue packaging machinery development have accelerated as a result.
It is widely thought that enhanced production capacities could drive growth opportunities even further for this sector. Because of this, there has never been a better time to embrace automation.
Harnessing growth opportunities
There is little doubt that at the start of Covid-19, trends dramatically changed and previous growth predictions were halted in their tracks. Lockdowns closed facilities and distancing and other health guidelines limited staffing on the ground. This disrupted growth patterns as production declined.
However, demand increased, and the industry adapted to new measures. Some tissue packaging businesses embraced automation and not only survived, but thrived, overcoming the resource challenges and speeding production to meet demand.
How automation helps in tissue packaging
Automated tissue packaging machines offer a high-speed approach in a sterile environment, creating a production line that has minimum human intervention. This protects both workers and consumers and enhances quality control, while enabling extended shift patterns and facilitating vital distancing measures.
The benefits can also extend to operational cost savings, energy savings, and the provision of consistency throughout the production line. The ability to enhance operations on so many levels can ensure flexibility and scalability like never before – crucial in today’s increasing and ever-changing regulatory environment.
