The global cartoning machines market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.31% to reach a market size of US$5,230.096 million by 2027 from US$3,892.240 million in 2020.

Cartoning Machines refer to a type of packaging machine used for the purpose of forming cartons. These machines are suitable for packing products into boxes with automatic loading. Products can be loaded into the machine infeed manually by the operator or automatically by a mechanical unit.

The cartoning machines market has been segmented by machine type, end user, and geography.

In the machine type segment, the horizontal cartoning machine is expected to hold a significant market share, while the vertical cartoning machine is expected to witness substantial growth. Furthermore, in the end-user segment, the food and healthcare sectors are projected to witness significant growth owing to the transportation and storage of food and clinical products. The demand for these machines is expected to expand on account of the growing use of carton packaging in various industries. Moreover, changes in brand awareness and customer behavior toward health-conscious food consumption are driving the expansion of the FMCG industry.

Players are employing business techniques to develop worldwide as their product portfolio increases, resulting in increased demand for cartoning machines.

As SMEs expand into bigger sectors, the increased usage of carton machines to transport FMCG is fueling the expansion of this industry. Additionally, the rising of the e-commerce industry along with the logistics industry in a few regions is projected to provide growth opportunities during the forecast period. Globalization and government laws on products transit and packaging are growing trade and economic contacts between the two nations, which is expected to increase the size of the cartoning machines market. Import-export business concepts, on the other hand, as well as new forthcoming entrepreneurship, are expected to drive market expansion. Companies are shifting to automated manufacturing units that require little human interaction. As a result of automation, the cartoning equipment market is likely to develop throughout the forecast period. The use of robots is the most recent development in the cartoning machine industry. Robots replace human capabilities such as memory, sensing, object identification, and so on, resulting in quicker, smarter, and less costly processing procedures in businesses.


A carton machine that fails unexpectedly might cause the carton to crumble, rip, or disintegrate, thereby increasing the amount of maintenance necessary. Excessive maintenance expenses are tough to contemplate for small and medium-sized equipment builders. To decrease downtime and boost productivity, established manufacturers are building new equipment that integrates with packing, coding, or palletizing capabilities. It raises the overall cost of manufacturing.

By Application

On the basis of application, the market for cartoning machines is divided into food and beverage, healthcare, cosmetics, and others. Clinical product storage solutions must be sturdy in the healthcare business. As a result, there has been an extraordinary demand for cartoning machines in the healthcare business, which has accelerated market share growth. Furthermore, the healthcare industry is significantly reliant on the safe transportation and storage of a wide range of clinical supplies. This opens up new avenues for manufacturers to design customized machinery. Moreover, the increase in demand for cartons from e-commerce companies opens up new opportunities for the industry. Additionally, manufacturers in the food business are increasingly depending on sustainable packaging technology to decrease material use and improve shelf life.

By Geography  

On the basis of geography, the market for cartoning machines is segmented into, South America, North America, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Europe. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold a dominant share of the cartoning machines market on account of the rising e-commerce and logistics industry. Europe and North America are also projected to witness steady growth during the forecast period.

Market Developments

  • In July 2019, Douglas Machine Inc. invented the 'Axiom IM case packer,' which can pack frozen food cartons at speeds of up to 34 cases per minute.
  • In January 2019, Baumer India announced the launch of a pharma cartoning machine.
  • In February 2021, The Sigpack TTMD combined fundamental technologies of the TTM platform with one or more seamlessly integrated Delta robot cells to broaden Syntegon's secondary packaging range. The camera-based vision control system of the robotic solution recognizes goods on the infeed belt. Delta robots consistently arrange single or multiple goods arriving in random order in cartons, trays, or other containers according to requirements. To increase packaging flexibility, the new top load cartoner can also pack various items from several infeed operations at the same time.
