Thermoforming packaging machine is likely to witness considerable growth from 2022 to 2027. The growth through 2026 for thermoforming equipment will increase with the increasing demand for blister, skin, and clamshell packaging. The demand for this packaging machine is due to its high ability to extend the shelf-life and protect the appearance of products like poultry, meats, and seafood. 

Reepack is a company known for its wide range of semiautomatic and fully automatic machines in the thermoforming packaging industry that helps in extending the shelf-life of packed food products. As per the analysis made by a Freedonia Group, the global demand for packaging machinery is expected to expand from 5.8% per year to US$71.1 billion through 2026. The Thermoformers are expected to outperform the most compared to other product types. These innovative food packaging machines help extend the shelf-life and maintain the freshness of food products, help keep disposable instruments and articles sterile, help protect products against aggressive environmental influences, and most importantly, help protect high-quality technical components against corrosion and oxidation.

Based on application, the thermoforming packaging machines market is segmented into pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, chemical and fertilizers, and personal care and cosmetics. Based on machine type, the market is segmented into automatic, semi-automatic, and manual. Whereas, based on distribution channels, the market is segmented into manufacturers and distributors.

According to Chad Deaton, horizontal product line manager Ossid, “There is a cost-saving component used for thermoform packaging as rollstock film minimizes transportation costs and storage space concerns as compared to premade trays or clamshell-like packaging”.

Flexibility is one key factor that has contributed a lot to the continuous success and popularity of thermoform packaging for food processors and consumers. For processors, thermoform packaging allows customization so that packaging can be customized to fit the product’s intended packaged look. For the consumers, this packaging displays the product nicely. The first thing of any product that catches the attention is its appearance. Food packaged on a thermoformer provides an eye-appealing display and also increases the food’s shelf-life, thus giving customers extra time to cook after purchase.

It is not surprising that both food processors and consumers are looking for products with extended shelf-life. Most of the time, the consumers experience that their steak, chicken, or other protein products get spoiled in a few days. Hence, in such a case, thermoform packaging plays an important role in increasing the shelf-life, especially for fresh protein products. On the other hand, its cost-saving components also reduce transportation costs and storage space concerns. The Reepack’s thermoform machine offers customizable elements, especially with respect to the length and output of the machine.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
