Bagging Equipment Market

2019 Analysis and Review Bagging Equipment Market by End-Use - Food Industry, Construction, Pharmaceuticals, Homecare, Personal Care, & Cosmetics, Others for 2019 – 2028


Increasing Demand for Sachet and Small Size Pouch to Boost Sales of Bagging Equipment

Bagging equipment is high precision equipment used for packaging products in various formats. End users show more preference for small size packaging in the form of sachetsflow wraps, and small size pouches and cartons, attributable to the increasing consumer base. Consumers are demanding smaller pack sizes for multiple reasons. Smaller pack sizes are convenient as well as affordable, which also makes them easy to carry to workplaces, and on holidays.

Smaller pack sizes in the food industry help in portion control and lessen the impact of impulse purchasing. In cosmetic packaging, smaller packs enable experimentation without excessive spending. Rising consumer mindfulness is expected to drive the demand for small pack sizes in all end-use industries, which is, in turn, expected to drive the demand for efficient bagging solutions during the forecast period.

Bagging Equipment Market Outlook

The bagging equipment market is estimated to rise through the forecast period at a moderate pace. Changes in awareness among consumers and packaging industry operators with regards to automation in bagging processes has become a major influencer for market growth. Bagging equipment for various materials ranging from plastic to paper are gaining attention, with bagging equipment manufacturers focusing on research into tech advancements for their offerings.

The integration of artificial intelligence with quality control systems are allowing new versions of bagging equipment to nearly eliminate errors in packaging even over long-duration of operations, unlike human operators who are prone to fatigue. Also, manufacturers are also incorporating multitasking capabilities in their offerings to enable labeling and sealing processes, in addition to bagging, while also reducing labor costs, and the potential for worker injury, which creates major growth opportunities for market players.

The covid-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the bagging equipment sector. Changes in consumer behavior, and higher demand for flexible packaging solutions to minimize virus transmission through non-packaged products has created higher demand for bagging equipment for the short term.

 Leading market players are focused on a multi-pronged strategy of expansions, acquisitions, mergers, and collaboration, in addition to sustainability initiatives to consolidate market position. The KHS Group for instance has added a new eco-friendly solution of paper bagging for food and beverage cans in June 2020. Similarly, ILAPAK has also unveiled its Vegatronic 6000 bagmaking machine in Jan 2020, for the production of recyclable, paper pillow pouches.

Excel Packaging machinery has opened a new HQ premises in Buckinghamshire, which is double the size of the previous office, which will aid in production and demonstration operations. Buhler Group is collaborating with Premier Tech for a joint venture in bulk packaging operations including bagging and palletizing. RCI has entered an agreement to acquire CNH Industrial America’s Ag-Bag product line for to expand its agriculture bagging portfolio.

Europe to Remain Major Exporter of Bagging Equipment

According to FMI analysis, Europe holds a significant market share in the global bagging equipment market, and Western Europe and Eastern Europe markets are estimated to create a cumulative incremental revenue opportunity of nearly US$ 5 Bn by the end of 2028. In terms of trade, the top import destinations for bagging equipment includes Germany, Italy, China, the U.S., Switzerland, and Spain, while export destinations include a large number of developing countries, which include Bangladesh, India, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Ghana.

Most of the tier-1 manufacturers of bagging equipment are based in Europe. They offer standalone as well as integrated bagging lines. End-use manufacturers who have high investment capabilities use high-end European-made bagging equipment, whereas small-scale manufacturers that seek lesser investments tend to opt for semi-automatic bagging equipment with low capacity.

Rising Demand for Vertical Bagger Equipment to Propel Market Growth

Bagging equipment can either use horizontal or vertical orientation, depending upon the application. Vertical baggers are capable of handling multiple bagging styles, which has made them more popular among brand owners. Furthermore, end-users such as food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, construction, and personal care industries are gaining more traction for vertical bagging equipment, as it offers a versatile bag sealing experience and reduces operating and labor costs.

Bagging equipment comes with the idea of the full-automatic assembly line, which eliminates the need for continuous supervision during the complete workflow. On the back of these benefits, the bagging equipment market is expected to grow by 1.5x of its current market value by the end of 2028.
