The World Market for Packaging Machinery by Industry Sector
The pharmaceutical industry is highly concentrated and consolidated, with relatively few very big, multinational corporations dominating production. These companies are usually focused principally on pharmaceuticals, with little diversification.
Personal Care, Toiletries and Cosmetics
This sector is well established and mature, particularly in Europe and North America, so it tends not to change rapidly or dramatically. The importance of packaging tends to act as a differentiator, distinguishing one product from another in a saturated market place. For manufacturers in more developed regions, where the market is congested and opportunity for growth limited, the greatest future opportunities will come from exports to faster growing developing regions.
Household, Industrial and Agricultural Chemicals Industry Sector
The household chemicals market is quite distinct from the performance of industrial chemicals. In terms of product development, it is quite slow moving and is mainly dependent on the general economic performance of a region.
Traditionally, North America, Western Europe, and Japan have been major regions for this sector; however, production has shifted from these regions to other parts of Asia, and China has been the largest producer in recent years.
