A global overview of the industry and preliminary figures for 2023 among the contents of a recent Mecs Research.

A new study prepared by MECS - Manufacturing Economic Studies study center of Acimac and Ucima, on the theme “Packaging and machinery: sustainability and ingenuity”, focuses right from the title on two aspects that have been driving the world of Italian packaging machinery in recent years. These are the focus on sustainability and the ability to innovate with ingenuity. The entire packaging supply chain is placing a strong and concrete emphasis on ESG issues, from the study of new materials to the development of increasingly efficient technology, an aspect on which ingenuity comes into play, leading Italian machinery to propose the most advanced technologies in terms of efficiency, innovativeness and green approach.

In a world market for packaging machinery that has a CAGR of +3.8% over the period 2022-2026 when the total value is expected to be €59.104 billion, Italy now ranks first among manufacturers, with a total value reaching €8.5 billion, accounting for 16.8% of the global market, followed by Germany with €7.3 billion and 14.7% share and the USA with 14.5% and €6.7 billion literally trailing China with its €6.6 billion to cover 13.6% of the global market.

Among the study's items of interest are some preliminary figures for 2023, which offered a picture of the economic situation for Italian packaging machinery manufacturers, capable of setting a new record with +6%, equal to a turnover of Euro 9,050 million, of which no less than Euro 7362 million related to exports, which rose by +12%.

Among the customer sectors, with data referring to 2023, 56.7% of F&B and 43.3% of non-food stand out, of which 16.7% refer to pharmaceuticals and 3.5 to chemicals. Finally, it should be mentioned that the pharmaceutical sector in packaging machinery generated a turnover of 1.4 billion in 2022 alone.
