The development of packaging machinery industry
China's packaging machinery started late. It started in the 1970s. After studying Japanese packaging machinery, the Beijing Institute of Commercial Machinery completed the manufacture of China's first packaging machine. After more than 20 years of development, China's packaging machinery has It has become one of the top ten industries in the machinery industry, providing a strong guarantee for the rapid development of China's packaging industry. Some packaging machinery has filled the domestic gap and can basically meet the needs of the domestic market, and some products are also exported. The import value of China's packaging machinery is roughly equal to the total output value, which is far from the developed countries.
While the industry is developing rapidly, there are also a series of problems. At this stage, the level of China's packaging machinery industry is not high enough. The packaging machinery market is increasingly monopolized. Except for corrugated packaging machinery and some small packaging machines, which have a certain scale and advantages, other packaging machinery is almost not a system and scale, especially some complete packaging production lines that are in high demand in the market, such as liquid filling production lines , beverage packaging container complete sets of equipment, aseptic packaging production lines, etc., are monopolized by several large packaging machinery enterprise groups in the world packaging machinery market, and domestic enterprises should take active measures in the face of strong impact from foreign brands.
Judging from the current situation, the global demand for packaging machinery is growing at an annual rate of 5.3%. The United States has the largest packaging equipment manufacturer, followed by Japan, and other major producers include Germany, Italy and China. However, the fastest growing production of packaging equipment in the future is in developing countries and regions. Developed countries will benefit from stimulating domestic demand and find suitable local manufacturers in developing countries, especially investing in food processing plants to provide packaging machinery and equipment. And China has made great progress since joining the WTO. The level of China's packaging machinery has improved very rapidly, and the gap with the world's advanced level has gradually narrowed. With China's increasing opening up, China's packaging machinery will also further open up the international market.
