Packaging Machinery and Automation Market Driven by Robotics and the Convergence of IT and OT

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Packaging Machinery and Automation Market reveals that advanced technologies, such as robotics, the convergence of information technologies (IT) and operational technologies (OT), machine level analytics, and 3D printing are changing business dynamics.

“Robots are now used in 94 percent of packaging applications, including sorting, orienting, case packaging, multi-SKU packaging, and palletizing. This doesn’t mean that 94 percent of all packaging lines are now ‘robotized’; it merely indicates that machine builders are embracing the technology and finding new and better ways to deploy robots to handle specific tasks,” according to David Humphrey, Director of Research, at ARC Advisory Group Europe, and key author of ARC’s Packaging Machinery and Automation Global Market Research 2017-2022 report.

ARC believes that no other trend will influence the machine building industry in the future as much as the growing influence of commercial information and computer technologies on automation systems, and the convergence of these technologies (IT) with plant-level operational technologies (OT).
