This is attributed to the steady economic growth in the region. The economy of Latin America is expected to grow from 2.9% in 2014 to 3.5% in 2015 and 3.7% in 2016. The steady growth in this region for some years and economic policies has improved the lives of millions. The poverty rate has also declined from 42% in 2000 to 25% in 2012 and the middle class has increased from 22% to 34% in the same time.
This growing demand for packaging is met by the automation packaging that helps in speeding up the process of packaging of goods. As the demand for packaging increases the, demand for automated packaging also increases.
Increasing competition is forcing manufacturers to take steps that reduce costs of their packaging processes. Those who are not moving with time are at risk of losing market share as well as the possibility of being pushed out of the marketplace. Adopting cost cutting measures means automating different manual processes and increasing the level of semi-automation process. Packaging was a completely manual process, before packaging automation made an impact.
Processes like filling, labeling, bagging, palletizing, capping and others have been automated. No more manual intervention is required for these processes. Different enterprises manufacturing products like food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care, beverages and even warehouses are increasingly using such automation solutions to streamline their business processes as well as reduce operating costs.
Increasing pressure on manufacturers to cut down operating costs
Emerging markets are emerging as low-cost labor and increased competition
Reduces machine downtime and product waste
Initial costs are high
The major problem with this market is the striking socioeconomic differences. The regions close to the urban areas have high GDP per capita which is very much different from the other regions. Also Brazil, Mexico and Argentina are the major driving forces of the region and the other countries are still not the major drivers in terms of economy and FDI. With this region getting a lot of investment and support from countries like the USA, the economic situation will improve and create more economic hubs across the region.
