The Packaging Automation Market is expected to reach USD 108.2 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period (2023–2030). The growth of the packaging automation market is driven by the rapid growth of the e-commerce sector, the increasing adoption of automated systems across industries, and stringent food safety regulations around the globe. However, the high costs of implementing packaging automation solutions restrain the growth of this market. Additionally, the high demand for packaging automation in the logistics industry and the increasing need for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging are expected to generate growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, the shortage of skilled operators is a major challenge for market growth.
