• Prevalence of low end machines with low capacity levels in developing markets; and
• Growing implementation of data exchange technologies to incorporate high automation levels.
Global tissue paper converting machines market: Forecast by system
On the basis of system, the global tissue paper converting machines market is segmented into toilet rolls lines, kitchen rolls lines, tissue fold lines, paper napkin lines, and standalone system. Toilet paper rolls account for more than half of the global tissue paper converting machines market, in which around 80 per cent comprises the consumer market. In terms of value, the standalone segment accounts for 6.6 per cent of the market share, while in terms of volume it accounts for 10 per cent of the global market. The small players of Asia Pacific generally incorporate very low capacity integrated converting lines that also cost much lesser than the machines generally used by large tissue paper products manufacturers of North America.
Global tissue paper converting machines market: Forecast by operation
On the basis of operations, the global tissue paper converting machines market is segmented into fully automatic and semi-automatic. Due to low capital investment capability of small and regional tissue paper products manufacturers, the semi-automatic machines market accounts for around 10 per cent of the global market. All the folded tissues and paper napkin converting machines are automatic, while toilet rolls and kitchen rolls converting machines have wide variations in automation.
