Coding and Marking Systems Market (Size of USD 3.6 billion in 2023) to Witness 5.86% CAGR During 2025-2030

Published Date: Feb, 2024

The coding and marking systems market is projected to contribute USD 3.6 billion in 2023 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.86% during the forecast period 2025-2030. The rapid growth of this market is majorly attributed towards the benefits attained by coding and marking systems such as protection from existing counterfeits in the market. Additionally, during the process of logistics these systems are used for tracking the goods from manufacturing unit till the product is delivered to the end consumer. These codes are also beneficial for the manufacturers in developing brand image, enhancing safety concerns and in providing quality assurance to the consumers.

Coding and marking systems is extensively being used to print various details regarding a particular product such as manufacturing date, lot size, product specific details and expiry details and other related details as listed by the government authorities in various developing as well as the developed economy.

The manufacturing process of automobiles uses several exclusive materials and for the elimination of faults these materials are required to be placed at a specific part number. To implement in this process key players are enhancing utilization of coding and marking systems that is ultimately driving the growth of tis market across the globe.

The accelerating sale of processed foods, packaged snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, dairy items and processed food is enhancing the demand for packaged food and beverage sector across the globe. Additionally, this sector is observed to be the major consumer of coding and marking systems and as a result increasing demand for packaged products in developed as well as developing economy is extensively contributing towards the growth of global coding and marking systems. However, stringent regulations by the government agencies and high cost of these systems are further expected to impede the growth of global coding and marking systems market.
