The global end-of-line packaging market was valued at USD 5.7 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2023 to 2032. The market is expected to reach USD 8.0 billion by 2032. The growing adoption of such a packaging system to lower costs and enhance packaging systems across various end-use industries drives the global end-of-line packaging market. Furthermore, the market would rise over the projected period due to the increasing need for automated manufacturing processes and the growing installation of automated end-of-line packaging in the industrial sector. Additionally, the market will grow as bottled beverages become more and more popular.

Market Introduction:

End-of-line packaging is the tools and machines used to complete the shipping package before shipment or the final transportation of the goods. This kind of system ensures that the processes involved run smoothly while also helping to satisfy the increasing demands of end users. Palletisers, stretch wrappers, carton erectors, packers and sealers, and any further auxiliary equipment required to finish packaging for shipping are included in this equipment. In addition, by improving production efficiency in quantity, process automation helps employers better use the labour they already have. It also lessens the need for specialised labour, freeing workers to focus on other crucial abilities. There are two types of end-of-line packaging systems available: automated and semi-automatic. While automatic end-of-line packaging machines are self-sufficient, semi-automated packaging machines necessitate human intervention for certain tasks.

Recent Development

In 2021, Serpa Packaging, a top supplier of cartoning and end-of-line solutions, was purchased by ProMach. ProMach's portfolio now includes automated cartoning systems owing to Serpa, which also greatly increases the company's capacity for line integration and specialised secondary packaging equipment for the quickly expanding pharmaceutical sector.

In 2020, Solutions for Cloud Packaging was acquired by Duravant Group. Mespack-Cloud, a Duravant subsidiary, will replace Cloud Packaging Solutions due to the synergies between Cloud's product offerings and the highly developed equipment portfolio of Mespack, an operational subsidiary of Duravant.

Market Dynamics:


Higher demand for automation- Due to the widespread usage of the internet and e-commerce, which has made the world a global marketplace, there is a significant demand for goods from around the globe. Products of every kind, from essentials to luxuries, are needed. For example, over the projection period, the global population will increase several times over. As a result, a greater demand for food will increase production. End-of-line automation is needed to deliver the product efficiently and fulfil all standard supply, ensuring there is always a supply of food or other essential products for the world's population.


Performance alignment issue- one of the biggest obstacles to the market's expansion would be ensuring that automation performance aligns with client desires. Consumer preferences have changed recently, favouring more affordable and high-quality products. Therefore, ensuring that the automation performance aligns with the production during the projection period could provide a significant issue for the end-of-line packaging market.


Reduce production rate and workforce- End-of-line packaging is expected to rise faster due to the growing need for lower labour and production costs. End-of-line packaging has enhanced the production process overall and reduced the possibility of danger from human error. This is likely to help the end-of-line packaging sector expand.
