Packaging Testing Equipment Market

Packaging Testing Equipment Market 2018-2028: Increasing Demand from Food and Beverage Industries to Drive Growth

Market Overview

For reducing the damages in transport, and ensure the safety of products from production to shipment process is expected to boost the demand for packaging testing equipment market. The packaging testing equipment is used for checking the quality of packages and its tolerance to the factors such as compression, vibration, and friction. For testing of such parameters, manufacturers are offering different types of packaging testing equipment. Moreover, packaging testing equipment is used for determining the sustainability of a packaging against the factors such as environmental, physical, and chemical factors as these factors can affect the product quality if not packed correctly.  The industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and FMCG are facing challenges while maintaining the shelf life of their products. The increasing demand for longer shelf life of products is achieved through standard packaging and this factor is fuelling the adoption of packaging testing equipment. Due to changing customer expectations, packaging of products is nowadays considered as one of the prime factors for attracting the customers as the quality of packing is ultimately affecting the image of product. Considering such factor, the demand for packaging testing equipment is expected to increase significantly over forecast period

Longer Shelf Life of Food and Beverage Products Driving Market Growth

Packaging testing equipment is expected to gain traction in food and beverages industry. The key objectives of food and beverages industry is to ensure longer shelf life of products for avoiding the loss of revenue generation. Also, demand for packaged food is increasing which is increasing production of food and beverages and ultimately driving the growth of packaging testing equipment. Moreover, the environmental factors such as humidity, sunlight, and temperature easily affects the product quality when it comes in direct contact and packaging acts as insulation for these products. This parameter is accelerating the adoption of packaging testing equipment in healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.

Stringent Government Regulations for Packaging

The government of different countries are executing strict regulations for maintaining a standard quality and safety of products by following standards such as ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), ISTA (International Safe Transit Association), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), and others.

  • The standards such as, ISTA (International Safe Transit Association) have predefined test for testing the packaging of products. The pass and fail results from testing defines the quality of packaging. These tests are used to check that the product will survive or not in shipment process.

Considering such international standards, the packaging testing equipment manufacturers are focusing on offering the regulations and standards compliant testing equipment to the industry users so that their products are safe in shipment process.

  • For example, Presto which is a one of the leading manufacturer of testing instruments based in India offers packaging testing equipment as per industrial standards. ‘Box Compression Tester’ is one the packaging testing equipment offered by company and it is ASTM D4169, ASTM D642, ISO 12048 compliant. This packaging testing equipment is used for testing materials such as boxes, cartons, glass, and ceramic.

High Cost of Packaging Testing Equipment Hindering Market Growth

The high cost of packaging testing equipment is one of the significant challenge affecting the growth of market. The high cost of these testers limits the adoption of these testers from industries present in underdeveloped countries. This factor ultimately restricts the growth of market.
