Packaging is essential for transporting products/goods to avoid damaging effects, keep food fresh, and protect them from theft. Also, the packaging is designed with the needs of the product and the consumer. As countries across the Middle East & Africa region grow their economies and aim to improve transport and distribution infrastructure with higher investments, more and more multinational brand owners are considering the potential for packaging production as their essential source. The region is driven by the large proportion of a wealthy population due to the relatively high gross domestic product per capita. The growing income of the people who constitute the youth across the region could drive the purchasing power during the forecast period. In addition, the future of the packaging machinery market in the Middle East & Africa region identifies that various developing economies will emerge as the leading markets over the next few years. The penetration of many e-commerce platforms across the region, such as noon.com, is among several factors fuelling the overall market growth of the packaging machinery industry by 2027. Depending upon these factors, local and international companies within the packaging machinery industry are increasingly targeting the Middle East and Africa region as sales value and volume are expected to rise during the forecast period.

According to the research report, "Middle East & Africa Packaging Machinery Market Outlook, 2027," published by Actual Research, the packaging machinery market is expected to grow at a 4.20% CAGR from 2022-2027. By increasingly moving into ready meals, pre-packed ingredients and produce, manufacturers present in the Middle East and Africa are following Western trends. Also, the growing attraction towards automation in the packaging industry has scaled up the overall packaging manufacturing process. Further, the Middle East & Africa packaging machinery market is segmented into three major countries: the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. Among these countries, the UAE and Saudi Arabia are projected to occupy more than 45% of the market share during the forecast period. 

In Saudi Arabia, most manufacturers are introducing additional enhanced functionalities for packaging machinery across the country. They aim to include cost-effectiveness, high seal strength, and safe procedure/transportation into the packaging machine qualities. Saudi Arabia is one of the most extensive packaging and packaging machinery markets across the Middle East and Africa. The country has a vast consumer base engaged in a wide range of industrial activities that boost the demand for effective packaging machinery. In 2020, more than 200 industries were reported that could take the lead in the packaging machinery market. Developing countries, such as the UAE, South Africa, Israel, Iran, Iraq, and Qatar, are expected to experience higher market growth during the forecast period. Although these countries are at an emerging phase for this technology, higher technological advancements and growing adoption of sustainable packaging machines are expected to fuel the overall market growth for the Middle East & Africa packaging machinery market by 2027.

According to the report, the Middle East & Africa packaging machinery market is segmented into seven diverse machine types: filling machines, labeling machines, form-fill-seal machines, cartooning machines, palletizing machines, wrapping machines, and bottling line machines. Among these machine types, the form-fill-seal machine segment is projected to acquire more than 30% of the market share in the Middle East & Africa market. Owing to the wide range and volume of products packed with this technology, the form-fill-seal machine type is projected to acquire significant market growth by the upcoming time frame. On the other hand, the bottling line machine type segment is the fastest growing segment in the Middle East & Africa packaging machinery market. Further, as demand for packaging machinery grows, so do end-users' requirements, including food and beverage manufacturers. These two end-users occupy more than half of the market share in the North American market. Due to the increasing demand for packed food with sustainable packaging across the region, this segment is forecasted to witness increasing growth during the forecast period.

The pandemic has hugely influenced the day-to-day routine of consumers and packaging machinery engineers. Due to the outbreak disrupted central manufacturing units and supply chains in the Middle East and Africa. All over the world, market growth was impacted due to this halt. Lockdown situations and strict government regulations restrict the various production processes across the region. However, by the end of 2020, many major market players have penetrated the region’s packaging machinery market and initiated their production at a higher pace. Also, many consumers turned to e-commerce for their necessities during the lockdown and beyond. These factors are expected to propel higher market growth in the upcoming period.
