Tray sealing machines are widely used in the food industry to pack and seal fresh food products. These machines are used to make spill-proof and leak-proof packaging. According to Future Market Insights, the tray sealing machine market will cross US$ 2.7 Bn by 2021, at a CAGR of 6%.
The consumption of tray sealing machines is estimated increase almost double in next ten years. The demand for tray sealing machines is consistently increasing, as these machines help optimize human error during packaging processes, while preventing contamination of the consumable products.
The demand for packaged fresh produce products and ready-to-eat meals has witnessed rapid growth over the past decade. Advanced packaging technologies, including VSP and MAP, are the prominent growth drivers owing to the extended shelf life of the products, thereby propelling the demand for tray sealing machines.
Key players are emphasizing fully automated process lines with minimum human intervention. Automated food processing and packaging machines ensure minimal wastage and enhanced productivity.
Factors such as customized size of trays, high barrier films, and clean sealing provide opportunities to increase branding of the product and promote brand loyalty. In addition, end users are gaining the trust of the consumers with see-through, clean packaging formats. Tray sealing machines are a cost-effective way to achieve aforesaid benefits.
The consumption of tray sealing machines are estimated to increase owing to a wide scale of applications including meat, poultry and seafood, bakery and confectionery, fresh produce, ready meals, sweets and dry fruits among others.
Tray sealing machines are preferred with Modified Atmospheric Packaging (M.A.P.) packaging formats to ensure product quality. Therefore, this segment is estimated to grow by two times of the current value, by the end of 2031.
