China's packaging machinery started late, from the 70 's, the Beijing Municipal Institute of Commercial Machinery in the study of Japan's packaging machinery, completed the manufacture of China's first packaging machine, after more than more than 20 years of development, China's packaging machinery has become one of the ten industries in the machinery industry, for the rapid development of China's packaging industry provides a strong guarantee, Some packaging machinery to fill the domestic gap, has been able to basically meet the needs of the domestic market, some products also have exports.
The import volume of packaging machinery in China is roughly the same as the total output value, which is far from that of developed countries. In the rapid development of the industry at the same time there are a series of problems, at this stage China's packaging machinery industry level is not high enough. Packaging machinery market is becoming increasingly monopolistic, in addition to corrugated packaging machinery and some small packaging machines have a certain scale and advantages, other packaging machinery almost fragmented and scale, especially in the market demand for some sets of packaging production lines, such as liquid filling production lines, beverage packaging containers complete sets of equipment, aseptic packaging production lines, etc.
In the world packaging machinery market are monopolized by several large packaging machinery enterprise groups, in the face of foreign brands strong impact on domestic enterprises should take a positive response. From this point of view, the global demand for packaging machinery is growing at an annual rate of 5.3%. The United States has the largest producer of packaging equipment, followed by Japan, while other major producers include Germany, Italy and China. But the fastest growth in packaging equipment production in the future is in developing countries and regions. Developed countries will profit from stimulating domestic demand and in developing countries to find suitable local manufacturers, especially in food processing plants to invest and provide packaging machinery and equipment. China has made great progress since joining the WTO, and the level of packaging machinery in China has been raised very fast, and the gap with the world's advanced level has gradually narrowed.
With China's increasing openness, China's packaging machinery will also further open up the international market.
