Overview of the global food and beverage packaging machinery market

The global food and beverage packaging machinery market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 6% during the forecast period. Growing demand for highly visible packaging materials will drive the growth of the global food and beverage packaging machinery market for the next four years. These packaging materials are used across various industries such as the retail, pharmaceutical, and food industries. Some of developed economies such as the US and Europe are expected to exhibit a high percentage of demand for these products in the recent times. The availability of a wide array of packaging designs help customers deduce the quality and quantity of the packaged item and also the brand. Also, these materials are highly child-resistant and tamper-proof and prevent the food from contamination and spoilage. Blister packaging, clamshell packaging, skin packaging, windowed packaging, tubs, cups, and trays are some types of highly visible packaging models.

The rising demand for lightweight packaging materials will drive the growth prospects for the global food and beverage packaging machinery market until the end of 2020. The transportation cost of these lightweight packaging materials is comparatively lower than other types of packaging materials. For instance, Sidel launched a pasteurizable lightweight PET bottle for beer with a non-petaloid base in 2014.

Overview of the global industrial castings market

The global industrial castings market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 2% during the forecast period. The increasing popularity of X-ray casting defect recognition technique in metal casting industries will drive the growth prospects for the global industrial castings market during the forecast period. In this system, a technique such as the automatic or assisted defect recognition (ADR) in X-ray applications is used in the automotive casting production process. This system is programmed to make either an “Accept” or “Reject” decision for the produced parts, based upon the system settings. Also, with the help of software tools, they help quality inspectors to find, characterize, and dispose anomalies. They are designed to function repeatedly in a reliable fashion and document the results independently without any human intervention. Moreover, since the digital imaging technology helps in increasing the overall efficiency and quality of the finished products, its demand among the end-users is increasing.

In terms of geography, APAC accounted for the maximum market share during 2015 and will continue to dominate the global industrial castings market during the forecast period. One of the major factors for their dominance includes the low-cost options for inexpensive labor and availability of cheaper raw materials in the region. Another important factor that drives the growth of the market is the increasing number of multi-national companies (MNCs) moving their production bases to the APAC region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is capital-intensive due to which the local players face challenges while the international players dominate the market. The major vendors compete on the basis of services, features, quality, and functionalities to expand their market shares.

Global outlook of the drilling machines market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global drilling machines market to grow steadily at a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the exponential increase in the demand for fabricated metal products to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. Fabricated metals are mainly used in manufacturing materials such as ammunition, cutlery, utensils, stamped metal products, tanks, and cranes. The rise in demand for fabricated metals from the construction and machinery industries across the globe will drive the growth of the drilling equipment market. The presence of several companies providing fabricated metal products in the US and the demand for US-manufactured fabricated products from several countries across the world including Mexico, Canada, and China will lead to a rise in the demand for machine tools in this region, which, in turn, driving market growth.

The integration of 3-D printing with precision drilling technology will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the next four years. Initially used for creating small plastic models and prototypes, 3-D printing technology is now used for creating prosthetics and electronic products and will soon find significance in machine tools and precision drilling. Compared to traditional manufacturing techniques, 3-D printers reduce material usage by almost 70%, which results in the reduction of product development costs and also provides a faster time to

Overview of the global ultrasonic NDT equipment market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the identification of new avenues for natural gas exploration as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The unchecked use of fossil fuels has resulted in an exponential increase in hydrocarbon acquisition costs and has also displaced exploration activities. With the oil and gas exploration and production companies concentrating on identifying unconventional avenues for exploration, the natural gas pipeline market will witness a significant growth in revenue. This, in turn, will boost the demand for ultrasonic NDT equipment to examine pipeline properties without damaging them.

When compared to radiography, phased array technology is much safer and is also less time-consuming, less expensive, and offers better output availability. Moreover, it also provides a much better way of detecting planar flaws than radiography and can also be used in non-screened-off areas. Such advantages will result in the increased adoption of phased array equipment, which will be one of the major trends gaining traction in the ultrasonic testing equipment market in the coming years.
