The German machine-builders increased the value of their outer packaging machines below average by 2%. That is why their market share in the EU dropped from 22% to 19%.

 

The six EU countries Italy, Germany, France, the Netherland, Spain and Great Britain are already producing 92% of the outer packaging machines in the European Union. However, these six countries account only for a good fifth of the EU countries.

The four countries Netherland, Great Britain, Denmark and Finland are showing a combined market share of 11% compared to 13% in 2014.

Intensified pressure for unlocking export markets outside EU

The large market shares of German packaging machines in the European Union explain the relatively low export share of packaging machines from Germany to the EU. It is with 30% clearly lower than that of the entire machinery industry with 48% to the European Union (2015).

 

So intensified unlocking of export markets outside EU belongs to the characteristics of the packaging machinery industry in Germany. However, the report about the export markets of packaging machines shows the opposite.
