Coding and Marking Market Overview:

According to Smithers Pira, the global packaging industry is set to rise at a CAGR of 3.5% through to 2020. Furthermore, the packaging machinery market is projected to witness remarkable growth, which is expected to satisfy increasing demand from food and pharmaceutical industries. Eye-catching packaging designs coupled with precise coding and marking on food products is gaining more popularity with consumers in the food and beverage industry. According to estimations, the global coding and marking market was valued at $5.52 billion in 2020, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. 

Progression in automation process involved in the production of food products is disrupting the APAC coding and marking systems market. Growing urbanization in China, India, Japan and South Korea along with increasing consumer awareness of the prominence of anti-counterfeit packaging is propelling demand for the coding and marking market. Rising mandate for pouch and smaller size packages mainly for sauces, shampoos, snacks, conditioners, oils, and small electronics products is booming the consumer products industry. These packages offer strong resistance to leakage of liquids. High production volumes by food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers in China are set to fuel growth of the global coding and marking market. Thus, APAC held a leading share of 30% in the global coding market in 2020.

Marking Market Outlook:

Small character inkjet printers use continuous inkjet technology to print one to 10 line texts, barcodes, data matrix codes, dates and logos with high resolution. It works more efficiently on foils, plastics, and laminates. Product marking engages with product characteristics and packaging description through pictograms, symbols, graphics, text and logos. It can be done using varied product marking techniques such as inkjet marking with small character inkjet printers, labeling, colored markings, thermo transfer printing and laser marking.

Plastic materials play a dominant role in the packaging industry. PE, PC, PVC, PP, PES, PET, formaldehyde resin, synthetic rubber, and latex are the different plastic packaging materials, which can be coded and marked. Continuous inkjet, laser, pezio, drop on demand technologies are majorly used for coding and marking plastic materials. Rising demand for plastic based packaging on a daily basis is driving growth of the coding market. Budding innovations and increasing popularity for attractive plastic packaging materials in the food and beverage industry is increasing scope of expansion for plastic materials. Therefore, plastics are recognized as the fastest growing application segment, estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.3%.
