World packaging machinery production and market development trends

first, there is a large market space for packaging machinery

from the current situation, the global demand for packaging machinery is expected to grow at an annual rate of 5.3%, reaching US $29billion by 2005. Sullivan's market research report said that by 2007, the total market value of European packaging machinery is expected to increase from $4.6 billion in 2000 to $6.5 billion, with great market potential

industries that traditionally do not use packaging systems will become new customers in the packaging machinery market, thus becoming one of the factors stimulating sales growth. The proportion of companies that have packaging equipment to update or increase packaging production lines will rise in the future, especially in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. In the past, small manufacturers who only purchased separate packaging machinery will gradually understand the advantages of the "integrated packaging production line" and become potential users of this kind of products. Therefore, in the future packaging machinery market, the share of this kind of packaging machinery will be on the rise

by 2005, the growth of fuel supply will continue to promote the economic recovery and development of developing countries in the Asia Pacific region and Latin America. However, by 2005, the fastest growth of packaging equipment production will be in developing countries and regions. Developed countries will benefit from stimulating domestic demand, and look for local suitable manufacturers in developing countries, especially food processing plants, to invest and provide packaging machinery and equipment

in the U.S. food industry, vegetables and fruits require the largest proportion of packaging machinery every year, accounting for 20.3% by 2005: meat food requires the second largest proportion of packaging machinery; Dairy products are the third; Bread is the fourth; Candy is fifth. In addition to the special level of meat food, the annual demand value of dairy and candy packaging machinery accounts for a downward trend in the proportion of the total demand value of the food industry. Other industries are mainly composed of household cleaning products and cosmetics, tobacco products, pharmaceutical products and daily necessities. The annual demand of other industries for packaging machinery accounts for about 1/3 of the total annual demand

the market of plastic packaging machinery in the United States will increase from $2.4 billion in 2000 to $2.8 billion in 2005, with a growth rate of 15.9%. Among them, injection molding machines occupy the largest market share. In 2000, the market of injection molding machines in the United States reached $160 million, accounting for nearly half of the market. It is estimated that it will reach $1.35 billion in 2005 and $1.56 billion in 2010. In terms of machine types, in the future, injection molding machines will be the largest market demand for plastic machinery in the United States, accounting for about 50%, while others, such as extrusion molding machines and blow molding machines, have little difference. At present, the United States still belongs to plastic packaging. Machinery is mainly imported from countries, but in recent years, the import amount has decreased year by year, from US $2.13 billion in 1999 to US $14.4 in 2002. Exports peaked at $1.26 billion in 2000, and then fell to $970 million in 2001 and 2002 due to the economic downturn

according to the data, the market capacity of Russian packaging machinery is US $5-7 billion per year, of which Russian manufacturers account for only 20% of the capacity, and these manufacturers mainly produce semi-automatic equipment. At present, they are not able to meet the overall needs of the Russian packaging industry. In the past three years, it has raised the procurement opportunity for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and personal care industries to replace oil packaging machinery with suitable viscosity at this time. Germany, Italy and Sweden are the main equipment importers. From 2002 to 2004, the potential fields of packaging machinery market sales are food industry, beverage industry, pharmaceutical industry and personal care industry. The most potential packaging equipment requires high quality, universal applicability of packaging materials and medium price. Russia's huge small packaging machinery market attracts equipment manufacturers and dealers from all countries. In this regard, although developed countries are the first, compared with these countries, China's small packaging machinery and equipment has an advantage in price, which is more suitable for the Russian market. At present, one of the factors that seriously restrict the export of China's equipment to Russia is that there is no place in Russia that specializes in the exhibition and sale of small equipment made in China. When buying equipment, Russian users generally need to see the physical prototype in addition to understanding the technical performance of the machinery. Most of the manufacturers are in the mainland of China, and it is extremely inconvenient to travel. In addition, there are many problems such as debugging and maintenance, spare parts supply and so on, It has increased difficulties for Russian customers who want to purchase Chinese equipment

Vietnam has implemented the reform and opening-up policy since the late 1980s. After 15 years, more than 5300 foreign-funded enterprises have entered Vietnam, distributed in 61 provinces and cities, and the export value has reached US $53billion, with Vietnam's annual export growth of 25%. This has created a good market opportunity for Vietnamese packaging machinery. The China food and packaging machinery industry association and the machinery industry branch of the China Council for the promotion of international trade organized a delegation to participate in the "Third China Commodity Exhibition" held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from December 18 to 21, 2003

except for a small pillow type packaging machine, all the equipment exhibited by China food and packaging machinery industry association were reserved for purchase on site, with a transaction of more than 590000 US dollars and an intention contract of 840000 US dollars. The cigarette hard box packaging machine of Tianjin Huayi Co., Ltd. was eagerly purchased by users, with a total transaction of 550000 US dollars and an intention to contract 840000 US dollars. We can see the great market demand

II. Development trend of packaging machinery

1. High automation

relevant insiders believe that in the future, the packaging machinery industry will cooperate with the trend of industrial automation, and the technological development will develop in four directions: first, the diversification of mechanical functions. Industrial and commercial products have tended to be refined and diversified. Under the changing environment, diversified and flexible packaging machines with multiple switching functions when resources are relatively tight can meet the market demand. The second is the standardization and modularization of structural design. Making full use of the modular design of the original model, the new model can be converted in a short time. Third, intelligent control. At present, packaging machinery manufacturers generally use PLC dynamic load controller. Although PLC has great flexibility, it still does not have the powerful functions of computers (including software). In the future, packaging machinery must have the conditions of multi-function and simple adjustment and operation. Intelligent food based on computer will become a new trend of food packaging controller. Fourth, high-precision structure. Structural design and structural motion control are related to the performance of packaging machinery, which can be completed by high-precision controllers such as motor, encoder, digital control (NC), power load control (PLC), and appropriately extend the product to develop packaging equipment in high-tech industry

on June 24, 2004, GE Fanuc automation Americas, a subsidiary of Ge infrastructure business, launched a new "six degrees 0fdifferentiation" (SDD) automation solution for packaging machinery manufacturers. It has high-performance controller, scalable operation interface, factory information software and motion control unit, which can significantly improve the operation rate of packaging machinery and improve the efficiency of the overall equipment. This comprehensive automation solution helps packaging machinery manufacturers develop efficient equipment that can quickly convert batches of different sizes or product processes without interruption. The leading and updated automation system can lead the trend of mainstream packaging machinery in terms of functions. At the same time, equipment users can be more independent, flexible, correct operation, efficient, compatible, and support their end users to obtain higher performance and productivity

2. High productivity

packaging machinery manufacturers pay more and more attention to developing fast and low-cost packaging equipment. The future development trend is that the equipment is smaller, more flexible, versatile and efficient. This trend also includes saving time and reducing costs. Therefore, what the packaging industry pursues is a combined, concise and mobile packaging equipment. In the automation of packaging machinery, automatic operation procedures have been widely used, such as PLC equipment, data collection system, etc

at present, Gome, Japan, Germany and Italy, the world's four major packaging machinery powers, attach great importance to the needs of the market and users, and take improving the number of machine revolutions and productivity as important indicators for the design pursuit, if not handled. One of the main ways to improve productivity is to increase the speed, but increasing the speed of the machine is a complex problem. The higher the speed, the lower the production cost of a single piece, the higher the usable area of the plant and the higher the failure rate, which will reduce the efficiency. Therefore, the best combination of the two should be sought: the increase of the speed of the machine will also have a related impact on the material, reliability, performance and life of other components. Generally speaking, Increasing the speed by 15% - 20% will bring a series of complex problems. Besides, the motor speed is also limited, so you can't go as fast as you want. In addition to increasing the speed, improving productivity can also be solved through other channels

at present, the filling speed of beverages in Germany can be as high as 1200 bottles/h, and the cigarette packaging is 1200o pieces/min. the world's fastest tea packaging machine, which integrates bag making, weighing, filling, vacuuming, sealing and other processes, has a speed of 350 bags/min

3. Compatibility

it can only carry hand-held measurement and pay attention to the production of the host machine, without considering the integrity of supporting equipment, which will make the application function of packaging machinery unable to play out. Therefore, the development of supporting equipment to maximize the expansion of the functions of the host is a crucial factor to improve the market competitiveness and economy of the equipment. Germany pays attention to the integrity of complete sets when providing users with automatic production lines or production line equipment. Whether it is high-tech added value or relatively simple equipment categories, they are provided according to the matching requirements

4. Simple and convenient

in the future, packaging machinery must have the conditions of multi-function and simple adjustment and operation. Intelligent instruments based on computers will become the new trend of food packaging controllers. OEM manufacturers and end consumers will tend to buy Packaging machinery that is easy to operate and install. Especially at present, there are a large number of layoffs in the manufacturing industry, and the demand for simple operating systems will increase day by day. Structural design and structural motion control are related to the performance of packaging machinery, which can be completed by motor, encoder, digital control (NC), dynamic load control (PLC) and other high-precision controllers. Therefore, in order to gain a place in the future packaging market, efficient customer service and mechanical maintenance will be one of the most important competitive conditions. ■
