New York, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) Packaging Machine Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2022 – 2027)” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06288116/?utm_source=GNW

Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) machines use computer-controlled automated technology to create flexible to rigid packaging while reducing the risk of contamination throughout the manufacturing process. The automatic continuous Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) packaging machine is currently one of the most popular types of packaging machines used in the packaging industry. It has the advantage of high speed and efficiency compared to individual product forming, filling and sealing machines.
Form-fill-seal films are one of the most versatile, economical and environmentally friendly packaging options available. These films are suitable for automatic packaging of consumer goods and food products as they offer superior protection against humidity, oxygen and UV. Form-fill-seal pouches, pouches and bags are simple to use, lightweight, durable and allow for mess-free dispensing. These are suitable for mass manufacturing and are generally compatible with horizontal and vertical form-fill-seal machines. Incorporating FSS films into packaging increases labor productivity while reducing packaging costs.
As consumer packaged goods companies struggle to retain employees, the need for machines that make changeovers easier, as well as troubleshooting issues, is on the rise. FFS packaging machines are now equipped with motion control and human-machine interfaces (HMIs), making it easier to run the process.
FFS pouch packaging machines have been proven to be fast, accurate, economical and versatile solutions that automatically improve efficiency and profitability. However, packing low density items such as wheat flour, talcum powder and whey powder at medium speeds is uneconomical and far too expensive. FFS packaging has one hurdle with this form of packaging.
Packaging hygiene and safety is a concern for consumers and businesses as the world continues to suffer from COVID-19. The spread of the pandemic has demonstrated how easily it can spread through human contact and cross-contamination. Many governments have adopted strict regulations to ensure that food is produced, packaged and distributed in a safe manner.

Main market trends

Horizontal Filling and Sealing Equipment Expected to See Strong Market Growth

Horizontal form-fill-seal (HFFS) machines, also known as FFS machines, are packaging systems for high-production manufacturing facilities that package, seal and ship food products. Using horizontal fill seal machines to package food products will save time and money as these machines are designed for speed and efficiency, effectively packaging and sealing vacuum products in a time. shorter than other traditional packaging, such as manual packaging or other manual packaging. packaging methods, can be packaged and vacuum sealed in durable bags that can hold up to 2.2 pounds of product.
Some HFFS machines are equipped with two molding stations and two sealing stations, so changes from one package size to another can be done automatically without downtime. This is useful in factories where switching is frequent. There are general setup steps to ensure that the HFFS machine produces high quality, well-formed wraps.
Growing demand for packaged foods and cost effectiveness of flexible packaging solutions are expected to drive the demand for pouches. According to figures generated by a Harris survey commissioned by Flexible Packaging, 83% of all brand owners currently use some type of flexible packaging. This supports the growth of the pouch packaging market, which effectively increases the demand for HFFS machines. Thanks to the new integrated technology, these HFFS machines are more and more advanced to allow the adjustment of external factors. For example, Loesch Verpackungstechnik supplies a high-performance horizontal machine for the primary packaging of chocolate bars, granola bars and protein bars.
It features intelligent control, a self-regulating control architecture enabling automatic parameter adjustments for fluctuating factors during operation (temperature, humidity, product characteristics), from rational product infeed to product discharge. . It is ideal for sticky packaging products such as cereal bars and protein bars.
According to the Association for Packaging and Processing, horizontal fill and seal machines are expected to generate strong demand during the forecast period in the United States. With factors taken into consideration, such as durability and an eco-friendly environment, various new technological advancements in HFFS machines are expected during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific will experience strong market growth

Growing population, increasing disposable income, and expanding food and beverage industry in China are contributing to the growth of the market. Changing lifestyles and development of multinational food outlets in the region are also contributing to the growth of the bag market, resulting in increased use of form-fill-seal machines.
Moreover, the growing need for quality water and health-conscious consumption habits are expected to increase the consumption of bottled water, which is likely to directly influence the packaging industry in the region.
Japan is a major manufacturing hub in Asia, with high quality products and the best manufacturing practices. Japan is a world leader in manufacturing. Apart from its impeccable electronics and huge automotive sector, Japan is also a global producer of cosmetics and one of the biggest consumers of packaging machinery.
India is one of the most populous countries in the world and ranks 2nd after China. According to the IMF, the current population of the country was around 1391.99 million in 2021 and is expected to reach 1455.82 million by 2026. This large mass of the country also makes it a heavy consumer of all kinds of products. Hence, India presents a huge market of FFS packaging machines.
Apart from the countries already discussed under the study of the Asia-Pacific region, other countries like South Korea, Australia, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc., have also a high potential to gain a considerable share of the market. studied.
