Sales Analysis of MAP Sealing Equipment (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecasts (2022-2032)

Packaging plays a crucial and pervasive role in modern times. From processing and manufacturing, through storage and handling, to the final consumer, it surrounds, enriches, and protects the products. Modern consumer marketing would be next to impossible without packaging, which makes materials ineffective, expensive, and handling messy. In developed countries, the packaging industry accounts for roughly 3% of the GNP, while food packaging accounts for around 50% of all packaging.

Packaging is a large and diverse industry having penetration across all domains. Packaging is done to preserve, protect, portion, bundle, present, and transport any product for safe delivery at its final destination. Additionally, the presentation of the product will help to sell it, leading to revenue generation.

Moreover, modern society's highly developed packaging businesses are a long moved from the age-old packaging practices of earlier eras. Unlike traditional sealing equipment, modern packaging equipment is more capable to offer improved product presentation and extended shelf life in a convenient container through a modified atmosphere.

In addition to providing a consistent measurement of contents, modified atmosphere packaging protects its contents from contamination and spoilage and facilitates the storage and transportation of commodities. It allows the creation and standardization of big market brands, giving advertising purpose and enabling wide-scale distribution.

Furthermore, with the growing trend of the automated packaging, MAP sealing equipment is expected to gain increased market share in the packaging industry and generate opportunities for the market players.

What’s Driving the Popularity of MAP Sealing Equipment?

“Extended Food Shelf Life and Minimization of Food & Non-food Product Wastage”

Owing to the growth of the global food industry, regulatory frameworks, and technological advancements, the demand-supply for the packaging of consumer goods is continuously changing. Global food production has witnessed tremendous growth, which is more than doubled over the past 50 years because of advanced methods in food production.

An ideal degree of packing is necessary to reduce food waste across the supply chain and save money. Based on the World Health Organization (WHO) report, between 30% and 50% of the food produced is wasted in many developing countries due to insufficient protection, preservation, transportation, and storage methods. On the other side, food waste is only 2-3% in developed countries where modern processing, packaging, and distribution systems are standard.

In response to this, stakeholders in consumer goods industries are fully appreciating and actively demanding advanced MAP sealing equipment.

“Intensifying Demand from Developing Countries for MAP Sealing Equipment”

High volume of production, consistent growth in food and non-food commodities, and steadily expanding packaging demand driven by rising incomes are the main drivers of the MAP sealing industry in emerging countries. As a result, emerging nations are better equipped to raise the quality of their products to satisfy the demands of an increasingly diversified population, from both, domestic and international markets.

For instance, Gulf countries have seen an evolution in terms of Western perfume brands setting up factories in the region and developing end products that are a blend of both, Western and Arabic influence. Owing to this, the Middle East & Africa beauty and personal care product market stood at a valuation of US$ 42.9 billion in 2021.

Improvements in existing technologies and the importation of new ones can help packaging businesses in developing nations grow. Nevertheless, MAP sealing equipment is a crucial component of the packaging business and is constantly updated as fresh types of solutions are introduced.

What Do MAP Sealing Equipment Manufacturers Have to Contend With?

“Leakages - A Huge Problem for Modified Atmosphere Production”

For production lines that operate in modified atmospheres 24 hours a day, leakages can be a serious issue. This may be the result of inadequate sealing or physical harm. However, downtime, consumer complaints, or product recalls are unaffordable for food processors, manufacturers, and packaging businesses.

Many manufacturers test for leaks at random, which means that if a leak is discovered the entire batch must be repackaged or thrown away, resulting in loss not only to end-user industry but also to the market player.

To negate this drawback, manufacturers are coming up with patented and innovative solutions to solve the leak detection challenge. New advanced equipment comes with reliable technology with high accuracy, providing high-capacity and non-destructive in-line leak detection for food as well as non-food sectors.
