Since the mid-1990s, China’s packaging industry has undergone rapid development. As a pillar of the industry, folding carton packaging is now one of the fastest growing segments in the trade.
Folding cartons are the most important of all the packaging containers. They are use to package food, beverages, wine, tea, cigarettes, health products, cosmetics, small electrical appliances, clothes, toys, sports goods and electronics, among other items. In recent years, although folding cartons have faced a stern challenge from plastic packaging, the international folding carton industry has continued to grow steadily. For this reason, the vibrant China market is becoming increasingly key to the global folding carton landscape.
Statistics from the China Packaging Federation show that the gross output value of China’s packaging industry exceeded RMB 1.2 trillion (USD 185.5 billion) in 2010. Folding carton paper packaging and carton box products accounted for 38.3 percent of the whole packaging industry. This figure is testament to the segment’s significance and overall strength.
Meanwhile, the rapid development of the folding carton packaging market has catalyzed the growth of China’s processing equipment manufacturing industry in this segment. This is particularly true of post-process manufacturing of folding carton equipment – a sector that drives technological innovation across the trade.
Today, in terms of performance and technology, Chinese folding carton post processing equipment brands match their foreign counterparts for quality. Indeed, they are now recognized as being the most competitive in the global printing equipment manufacturing industry.
Over recent years, a cluster of international caliber, post-processing equipment manufacturers have sprung up across China. Among these are Tianjin Changrong Printing Equipment, Shanghai Yahua Printing Machinery and Shanghai Eterna Machinery. These companies focus on developing independently owned core technologies. They also aim to provide high quality products and services to highlight the much enhanced quality of the “Made in China” brand that is becoming synonymous with competitive prices, exceptional quality and high cost-effectiveness.
The largest event for the folding carton packaging and printing trade in China and Southeast Asia, SinoFoldingCarton 2011, will take place at Beijing’s China International Exhibition Center from July 6 to July 8.
SinoFoldingCarton 2011 (Sino-FoldingCarton.com) is an exhibition that serves as a powerful platform via which manufacturers can showcase their newest post processing equipment and consumables. The event is set to bring together over 300 of the top local and international manufacturers of folding carton equipment and consumer products. These companies will display a wide range of processing solutions for folding carton boxes, hard boxes, plastic boxes and paper bags.
At SinoFoldingCarton 2011, visitors will not only see the latest advances in post processing equipment from a diverse array of high profile Chinese manufacturers, they will also see the new developments in manufacturing technologies for China’s post processing equipment. Die cutting, foiling, laminating and varnishing equipment will all be featured.
