Analysis On The Market And Trend Of Liquid Packaging Machinery At Home And Abroad
In the long run, China’s liquid food industries, such as beverages, alcohol, edible oil and condiments, still have a large space for growth, especially the improvement of consumption capacity in rural areas will greatly boost their consumption of beverages and other liquid food. The rapid development of downstream industries and people’s pursuit of quality of life will inevitably require enterprises to invest in corresponding packaging equipment to meet the needs of production. At the same time, it will also put forward higher requirements for the high-precision, intelligent and high-speed level of packaging machinery. Therefore, China’s liquid food packaging machinery will show a broader market prospect.
Market competition of liquid packaging machinery
At present, countries with relatively high level of liquid food packaging machinery mainly for beverages are mainly Germany, France, Japan, Italy and Sweden. International giants such as Krones Group, Sidel and KHS still occupy most of the global market shares. Although the manufacturing industry of liquid food packaging machinery in China has developed rapidly in recent years, and has developed a number of key equipment with independent intellectual property rights, which has continuously shortened the gap with the foreign advanced level, and some fields have reached or even exceeded the international advanced level, forming a number of fist products that can not only meet the domestic market, but also participate in international competition and sell well at home and abroad, some domestic complete sets of high-precision, highly intelligent High efficiency key equipment (such as beverage and liquid food canning equipment) still relies on imports. However, the export quantity and amount of China in the past three years have shown a steady growth trend, which also shows that the technology of some domestic liquid food packaging equipment has been relatively mature. After meeting some domestic needs, it has also supported the equipment needs of other countries and regions.
The development direction of our beverage packaging in the future
The domestic market competition of liquid food packaging machinery in China has three levels: high, medium and low-end. The low-end market is mainly a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises, which produce a large number of low-level, low-grade and low price products. These enterprises are widely distributed in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Guangdong and Shandong; The middle end market is an enterprise with certain economic strength and new product development capability, but their products are more imitated, less innovative, the overall technical level is not high, and the product automation level is low, so they cannot enter the high-end market; In the high-end market, enterprises that can produce medium and high-end products have emerged. Some of their products have reached the international advanced level, and they can compete positively with similar products of large multinational companies in the domestic market and some overseas markets. In general, China is still in the fierce competition in the middle and low-end markets, and there are still many high-end market imports. With the continuous development of new products, the continuous breakthroughs in new technologies, and the significant cost performance advantages of domestic equipment, the share of imported equipment in China’s liquid food packaging machinery market will decrease year by year, and the export capacity of domestic equipment will be enhanced instead.
Industry insiders are full of confidence in the future development of beverage packaging industry
First, the development of the beverage industry promotes the technological progress of the packaging industry. In the future beverage packaging market, the unique advantages of low consumption of raw materials, low cost, and convenient carrying determine that beverage packaging must constantly innovate in technology to follow the pace of beverage development. Beer, red wine, Baijiu, coffee, honey, carbonated drinks and other beverages that are accustomed to using cans or glass as packaging materials, along with the continuous improvement of functional films, It is an inevitable trend that plastic flexible packaging is widely used instead of bottled containers. The greening of packaging materials and production processes marks that the solvent-free composite and extrusion composite multilayer co extruded functional films will be more widely used in beverage packaging.
Second, product packaging requirements are differentiated. “More kinds of products require more differentiated packaging” has become the development trend of the beverage industry, and the development of beverage packaging machinery technology will become the ultimate driving force of this trend. In the next 3-5 years, the beverage market will develop into low sugar or sugar free drinks, as well as pure natural and milk containing health drinks while developing existing fruit juice, tea, bottled drinking water, functional drinks, carbonated drinks and other products. The development trend of products will further promote the development of packaging differentiation, such as PET aseptic cold filling packaging, HDPE (with a barrier layer in the middle) milk packaging, and aseptic carton packaging. The diversity of beverage product development will ultimately promote the innovation of beverage packaging materials and structures.
Third, strengthening technology research and development is the basis for the sustainable development of the beverage packaging industry. At present, domestic equipment suppliers have made great progress in this regard, and have strong competitive strength in terms of price and after-sales service. Some domestic beverage equipment manufacturers, such as Xinmeixing, have highlighted their potential and advantages in providing low and medium speed beverage packaging lines. It is mainly reflected in the very competitive price of the whole line, good local technical support and after-sales service, relatively low equipment maintenance and spare parts prices.
