Automatic folding gluing machines hold a mammoth 81.1% share in the global market at present. Increasing demand from the packaging sector for packaging boxes will drive demand for folding glue applicator machines over the years to come.

Folding Gluing Machines Demand Analysis (2013 to 2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2022 to 2028)

The folding gluing machines market registered a CAGR of 3.4% from 2013 to 2021 and amassed revenue worth US$ 579.7 Mn in 2021.  Owing to the thriving food industry, demand for corrugated packaging is high. This has created high demand for folding gluing machines as they prove to be an economical and efficient way to prepare boxes out of flat sheets. Moreover, need for packaging boxes has increased demand for carton folding and gluing machines on a global level.

Automatic gluing machines hold 81.1% share while semi-automatic gluing machines hold 18.9% share in the global market. The market also consists of machines such as glue applicator rolling machines, glue press machines, RF glue machines, and edge gluing machines.

Folding gluing machines for different end-use industries use different sheet sizes. The pharmaceuticals industry mostly uses smaller sheet sizes of about 500 mm while the food industry uses 1100 mm sheets to produce boxes for packaging. Although, these sheet sizes can be customized to suit the needs of the end use manufacturer.

Corrugated boxes are used for shipping and transit by a variety of end-use industries. This can be attributed to the optimal cost-to-strength ratio that they offer. High demand for corrugated boxes has created the need for an efficient and inexpensive way to convert corrugated boards into boxes. The in-line process of folding gluing machines reduces the cost of producing corrugated boxes and also results in better quality corrugated containers.

Folding gluing machine demand is predicted to progress at a steady CAGR of 4.5% from 2022 to 2028. Folding gluing machine sales are expected to recover from its slump due to the COVID-19 pandemic onset and rise at the predicted growth rate to end up with an estimated net worth of US$ 793.8 Mn by 2028.

Which Regional Markets are Expected to Be Attractive for Folding Gluing Machine Providers?

“Folding Glue Pasting Machines Trending in North American Market”

These folding gluing machines market insights shed light on the metrics for regions such as North America, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, South Asia & Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). 

The North America folding gluing machines market is expected to account for the highest market share in the global landscape in 2022. Rising demand for packaging boxes from various end-use sectors is driving demand for box gluing machines.

The folding gluing machines market in Western Europe and Eastern Europe are expected to be driven by rising demand for packaging boxes from the food industry. The Middle East and Africa market is also expected to experience healthy growth in the market.

Due to increased disposable income and expansion of industry and infrastructure building capability in countries such as India and China, Asia Pacific is also a prominent market for folding gluing machines.

Country-wise Analysis

What is the Outlook for Folding Gluing Machines in China?

“Healthy Rise in Demand Growth of Semi-Automatic Gluing Machines”

During the projected period, the Chinese market is expected to expand significant at a growth rate. Demand for automatic & semi-automatic gluing machines as well as hot melt glue machines and laminating machines in the nation is expected to rise at a healthy CAGR through 2028.

How is Demand for Folding Gluing Machines Shaping Up in the U.S.?

“Super Gluer Folding Machines Gaining Popularity in the U.S.”

American International Machinery (AIM) manufactured a unique range of folding gluing machines that can simplify the make-ready process. These folding gluing machines use a solid-beam photo sensor to detect a box, and can begin back folding process from the rear edge of the carton rather than the front edge of the box. This means that the operator doesn’t have to measure the dimensions every time, which results in less time spent on the make-ready process, thereby increasing throughput.

During the projected period, the market in the U.S. is expected to expand significantly. Increase in the adoption of advanced technologies in the country as well as the presence of significant players is expected to provide ample potential possibilities for market players.

Category-wise Analysis

Which Type of Folding Glue Applicator Machines are Set to Gain Immense Popularity?

“Demand Increasing for Automatic Folding Gluing Machines across Regions”

The automatic segment of folding gluing machines is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period of 2018-2028. Folding gluing machines are expected to create an incremental opportunity of over US$ 302 Mn through 2038.

The food segment is expected to reach US$ 229.0 Mn by the end of the forecast period. 1100 mm folding gluing machines is anticipated to be the most lucrative segment and is projected to register a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact On Market

The pandemic of 2020 partially impacted demand for folding gluing machines. Pandemic restrictions didn’t allow workers to visit companies. The same drop was experienced by the laminating machines market as well. Supply chain disruptions led to the shortage of raw materials required to make packaging boxes.

The market is expected to return to its full potential by the end of 2022 and progress throughout the forecast period. Automatic gluing machines and carton folding and gluing machines are gaining importance across regions as world rise once again.

Competitive Landscape

Folding gluing machine manufacturers are focusing on production with latest technologies to promote their machines across multiple geographies. Leading manufacturers of folding gluing machines are investing high amounts in R&D to innovate existing product lines and gain a competitive edge.

While reduction of change-over time holds importance, advanced technology integration also remains one of the key strategies of folding gluing machine manufacturing companies.

  • Roberts PolyPro Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer of product packaging solutions, has produced a straight-line gluer and a super-gluer folding gluing machine. It has 80% fewer moving parts than traditional folding gluing machines, which reduces the time required for maintenance.
