Industry Trends

Contract manufacturer activity is growing at greater rate than brand owner activity
  • Increased outsourcing of production from large snack food companies as well as new and smaller companies jumping on the Healthy Snack bandwagon
  • Co-packing is contract-based and therefore more volatile. Co-packers need various types of equipment to satisfy their customers’ various needs.
Perception among many CPGs is that robotic technology is still too expensive, especially:
  • Robotics pick-and-place filling capability
  • Robotically-equipped case packers (high-precision case loading)
Lack of packaging sustainability not yet an obstacle to purchase for consumer, but brand owners & retailers are pushing to improve their image
  • Will not be important in the next 2-3 years may be more relevant in 5-10 years
  • Packaging machines like cartoners struggling to run packages that contain post-consumer materials.
