Packaging Machinery in China started late, before the 1980s, the slow development, only the production of several very low levels of packaging machinery, did not become a separate industry, the catalog published by the State of this kind of packaging machinery.
After the reform and opening up, the social demand for packaging machinery, and with the attention and support, packaging machinery in China have developed rapidly, the average annual growth rate greater than 30%, into the 1990s, still more than 20% growth rate.
After 20 years of development, China's packaging machinery has become one of the ten industries in the machinery industry output and varieties, have made remarkable achievements, the rapid development of China's packaging industry has provided a strong guarantee. Some packaging machinery to fill the domestic blank, been able to basically meet the domestic needs of the market, some products export. National packaging machinery production in 2001 amounted to 533 000 units (sets), the output value of 19.55 billion yuan, accounting for 8.2% of the packaging industry output value, China has become one of the world packaging machinery production and consumption.
However, the packaging machinery industry in China there are many problems: lack of macro-overall planning, the herd mentality in investing in the development of new products is often low-level redundant. The second is the lack of funding for research and development funds due to lack of funds, an average of less than 1%% of sales, not to produce a generation, the development of generation and research generation. Since no technical reserves, the introduction of technology, poor digestion and absorption of work to enable enterprises to new products, lack of market competitiveness. Third, the lack of professional and technical personnel, the packaging industry's profit level is not high, it is difficult to attract the best technical talent, and independent product development and innovation capability is weak, and even digestion and absorption of similar foreign products are weak. At present, China's exports of packaging machinery is less than 5% of the total output value, imports and GDP are quite probably.
Compared with developed countries, the gap between China's packaging pellet maker machine industry mainly in the following areas: from the product structure, foreign variety of packaging machinery is about 2,300 sets of equipment, and there have been new technologies, the emergence of new products .
China's packaging machinery is only more than 1300 kinds, supporting a small number, the lack of precision and large-scale products can not meet market demand; from product quality, the gap is reflected in product performance, stability and reliability is poor, unsightly appearance, The rough surface treatment, many components of poor quality, short life and low reliability, affecting the overall quality of the product; business conditions, foreign companies producing large-scale, high degree of specialization, most of the CAD / CAM technology, enterprise management, production, sales, basically a computer management. Lack of domestic packaging machinery industry leading enterprises, large-scale production, high quality product with small enterprises, small scale production, the companies making similar products, the prevalence of technology is weak, the situation of the low level of technical equipment; from product development China is still essential to stay in the testing stage of imitation, self-development capacity is weak, the lack of research and production base in the trial, research funding accounts for only 1 percent of sales abroad as much as 8 percent to 10 percent.
China Food and Packaging Machinery Industry in 2005 under the joint efforts of the whole industry a remarkable performance, product sales revenue reached 67.9 billion yuan, an increase of 21.5 percent compared with last year's 55.8 billion yuan, but the technical level of China's packaging machinery from the overall look than 20 years behind the advanced countries of the technical level, product development, performance, quality, reliability, service and other aspects of competition at a disadvantage.
Urgent need across the board change to follow the international trends in the pellet machine in china industry
At present, the world attaches great importance to the development of packaging machinery, machine, electricity, light, sound, magnetism as one of the high-tech products continue to emerge. Production of high-efficiency, resources, high use of the product energy-saving, high-tech practical, scientific research commercialization has become the world packaging machinery trend, which is the development direction of China's packaging machinery industry. For China's packaging machinery manufacturing enterprises, must be perfect, and refinement for post-secondary. Most of the packaging machinery manufacturing enterprises in the United States, Japan, Italy small scale, but a high degree of specialization, from the international packaging machinery development trend of China's packaging industry alone increased funding, to expand the production scale of the extensive management can not meet the needs of the development of the situation, the production of our packaging equipment into the adjustment of product structure, improving the ability of the new era of development. Technology upgrades, the new generation of products, strengthen management is an important issue for the development of the industry.
