Industry Trends

Contract manufacturer activity is growing at greater rate than
brand owner activity

  • Increased outsourcing of production from large snack food companies as
    well as new and smaller companies jumping on the Healthy Snack
    bandwagon
  • Co-packing is contract-based and therefore more volatile. Co-packers
    need various types of equipment to satisfy their customers' various
    needs.

Perception among many CPGs is that robotic technology is still
too expensive, especially:

  • Robotics pick-and-place filling capability
  • Robotically-equipped case packers (high-precision case loading)

Lack of packaging sustainability not yet an obstacle to purchase
for consumer, but brand owners & retailers are pushing to improve their
image

  • Will not be important in the next 2-3 years, may be more relevant in
    5-10 years
  • Packaging machines like cartoners struggling to run packages that
    contain post-consumer materials.
