Automation Trends in Processing and Packaging Market of China

The global automation market is projected to expand while riding on the rising need to reduce storage and cost, maintain quality and improve productivity. The growing trend of automation also highlights China’s processing and packaging market. Organised by Sinoexpo Informa Markets (Former UBM Sinoexpo), ProPak China 2020, the 26th International Processing & Packaging Exhibition, will gather leading automation suppliers across the globe. This exhibition will take place at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from June 22-24, 2020 and focus on the emerging technologies in turnkey automation solutions for processing and packaging industries.

Rising trend of automation in China’s processing and packaging industries

According to the latest report from Reportlinker, the Chinese packaging industry is set to achieve more growth between 2016 and 2021, registering at a CAGR of 5.4%. The strong growth is mainly driven by the changing demographics and social factors such as growing urbanization, an aging population, and the rising middle class, along with their growing aspirations. These changes drive the need and challenges for new packaging formats, such as different sizes, materials, and formats.

To turn these challenges into opportunities, innovative companies are increasingly relying on solutions such as human-robot collaboration and the use of artificial intelligence to manage intensive data processing.

Leading downstream clients in China such as Beingmate Baby & Child Food Co., Ltd. have largely increased automation through installing highly automated production lines including packaging lines. Wahaha, the largest food and beverage manufacturer in China, has invested more than 20 billion RMB to introduce the world-class automated production lines, realizing the whole process of automation from raw materials to products packaging. This is likely a model to be adopted by other large manufacturers in the next five to ten years.
