US exports more packaging machinery

From January to November 2006, United States exports of packaging machinery increased 7% compared to the same period of 2005 totalling U.S. $783 million. U.S. imports of packaging machinery increased 6%.

The data, based on U.S. Census estimates and reported by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), reflects the overall economic impact of the U.S. packaging industry.
According to PMMI's 12th Annual Shipments and Outlook Study, released in September 2006, the growth can be attributed to end-users expanding production lines to accommodating new product introductions and package designs. In effect, end-users continued to replace older packaging machines with new models featuring state-of-the-art technology and promising rapid return on investment.
