It is expected that the output value of China food and packaging machinery industry will exceed 600 billion yuan by 2015, with an average annual growth rate of approximately 16%. Nevertheless, domestic packaging machinery excessively relies on foreign high-end technology, which has severely restricted sustainable and stable development of Chinese packaging industry.
It is reported that, despite of the rapid development of China's packaging industry, a large number of high-tech equipment is still imported from abroad. A large amount of foreign exchange is for importing complete sets of high-end equipment annually. For example, a production line of plastic film equipment with biaxial orientation costs near 100 million yuan. China has imported 110 such production lines since the 1970s. In addition, aseptic packaging and bottling equipments applied in dairy industry are almost supplied by Swedish Tetra Pak Company.
Compared with other countries, the gap of Chinese machinery manufacturing mainly reflects on technology. The development of cutting-edge technology needs both knowledge and equipment investments. If companies are unwilling to invest and research institutions lack of strength, the gap between China and the international advanced level will be larger over time.
Facing the future development trend of food packaging, domestic enterprises should increase innovation based on scientific and technological innovation, and gradually implement business model of specialization to form a market competition system with differentiation. Meanwhile, they should focus on “green packaging” to prevent pollution and attach to environmental protection.
