The average value of packaging machines has been changing in three stages since 2008. Its changes are connected with changes of the export markets as a separate report indicates. In 2017, the average value rose again. This report examines how this development has affected the three product segments of the packaging machines sector.

June 29th, 2018 - The average value of packaging machines (blue colored background in the chart) changes in three stages from 2008 to 2016.

After the outbreak of the economic crisis 2009/2009 the average value sinks until 2011 by 14% from €67,000, then rises by 34% to over €89,000 until 2014 and drops again by 5% to €85,000 in 2015. These changes are accompanied, as a separate report points out, by a change in the export markets.

From this low, the value per packaging machine rose again in 2017 by nearly 7% to € 81,100. It remains to be seen whether this increase will continue in 2018, generating a fourth stage or returning to the downward trends of falling average values s since 2015.
