Robotisation of pharmaceutical packaging is fast becoming a major trend
The global market for pharmaceutical packaging equipment is expected to reach $11.9 billion by 2027, up from $8.4 billion in 2022.
The pharmaceutical packaging industry is increasingly adopting robotic lines to improve efficiency and remain competitive in a market that which has been continuously expanding since the beginning of the Covid-19 health crisis. Whether boosting efficiency, productivity, scalability or increasing execution speed ten-fold, there are many advantages to robotisation, especially for complex and precise processes, such as dosing and capping various containers.
