Sales Analysis of Seal Inspection Equipment (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecasts (2022-2032)

Testing the integrity of package seals enables manufacturers to ensure that the packaging ensures the needed product security. Seal integrity tests are extensively used to evaluate more sustainable packaging options, economical packaging, and modifications in production line sealing settings.

Demand for seal inspection equipment is expected to increase with the surging interest in sustainable packaging. For instance, alternative structures such as monolayer recyclable flexible packaging are being developed and it's critical to preserve the strength of the seals for these structures.

Similarly, less expensive packaging materials and alternative sealing techniques are assessed for seal strength and certified that the seals do not leak during the product's shelf life. Seals on packaging for new product releases and alternative distribution methods, including e-Commerce, also need to be inspected for quality.

Seal inspection machine applications in sectors such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals & life sciences, consumer products, electronics & semiconductors, automotive & aerospace, and many more are crucial to ensure the quality and safety of the manufactured products. Faulty or damaged packaging can have an adverse influence on how distributors and customers perceive product quality, safety, and value, and it can also lead to costly product recalls.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Recent demand & supply challenges, increased e-Commerce, and qualified alternate packaging materials to positively impact seal inspection equipment market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Advanced line automation facilitating greater volume production at higher speeds in industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and consumer electronics to contribute to increased sales of seal inspection equipment.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Increasing demand for environment-friendly packaging to drive seal inspection equipment demand.

Between 2017 and 2021, global demand for seal inspection equipment increased at a CAGR of 1.4%. According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is predicted to expand at 6.8% CAGR through 2032.

Why is Usage of Seal Inspection Equipment Becoming More Popular?

“Huge Advantage of Seal Inspection Equipment Over Manual Sampling Methods”

Traditionally, inspecting seals was a manual, visual operation carried out on a sample basis. As people get exhausted, distracted, or confused by borderline flaws, manual inspection is somewhat unreliable. Items that need to be reworked might probably end up being shipped as a result, or get delayed.

Due to technological innovation, by incorporating non-destructive inspection into the production line, it is now possible to guarantee the quality of the finished product. Individual failures can be detected even within high-quality batches without slowing down production.

Using well-designed and calibrated machine vision algorithms provides users with more trustworthy inspection findings than those that can be obtained manually.

“Need to Reduce Product Recalls Faced by End-use Industries”

For businesses, a product recall is a huge and expensive occurrence. Several businesses all along the supply chain may be impacted by a single supplier recall.

Bacterial contamination, hidden allergens, and foreign materials are some of the leading causes of recalls for food and beverage products. Package integrity problems frequently cause product performance to decline over time and lead to spoiling. In the case of highly-sensitive products, the producer may face a product recall, a decline in brand equity, and a loss of consumer confidence.

To maintain product sterility for pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, the seal on the packaging must be completely intact. The integrity of the seal can be jeopardized by voids, cracks, dust, random particles, or hair, among other defects.

Owing to the higher demand for inspection, the installation of seal inspection systems has witnessed significant growth. Demand for seal inspection systems from the electronics industry is high due to the sealing gaskets on electrical modules that help minimize failure, including battery seal inspection, cooling module inspection, electrical components, circuit boards, and instrument cluster applications.

Factors that are driving demand for package seal inspection equipment include reasons such as acquiring uniform seal layers, perfecting packaging layers to allow recycling, selecting acceptable substitute packaging materials, accelerated production line rates to meet demand, growth of e-Commerce, and the emergence of alternative distribution methods.

What May Hamper Demand Growth for Seal Inspection Devices to Some Extent?

“Susceptibility to Integrated Systems under Certain Conditions and High Product Cost”

The utilization of a machine vision system directly into the line automation system, which is common in a majority of end-use applications such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals & consumer goods, etc., can eliminate the need for isolated seal inspection equipment.

Additionally, a significant market share of such industries is captured by small and medium enterprises, particularly in developing nations that cannot afford the high cost of seal inspection equipment. The high initial cost of a seal inspection machine can hamper the overall demand for seal testing equipment over the coming years.
