“The industrial internet of things technology is being increasingly installed in existing sites and across existing field equipment in the bottling industry through upgrades and retrofits. This technology is also employed in the supply chain, including in raw materials sourcing, manufacturing of bottles, and delivery to restaurants, groceries, and other end-users,” said Bharath Kanniappan, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for automation research.

“Implementing IoT can help the beverage companies to track raw ingredients, finished goods, and effectively comply with regulatory standards such as FSMA, GFSI, and HACCP. The technology can also help in reducing the cost of goods sold. The sensor-equipped machinery can help the bottle makers to minimize yield variances and energy consumption and increase end-to-end cost efficiency,” added Bharath.

Global PLC market in bottling industry

The global PLC market in the bottling industry was valued at USD 335.6 million in 2015. PLC offers control over automation applications in the bottling plant by maintaining direct connectivity with different field devices such as transmitters, sensors, and actuators. It receives commands and signals from field devices and other industrial systems through a control system communication protocol. It then uses programming languages, such as ladder diagrams, functional block diagrams, and instruction lists, to facilitate the smooth functioning of the plant.

PLC automates the bottling plant and controls operations at each stage. It monitors capping cylinders, conveyors, and the flow of water from tanks. The bottling process is automated by feeding the conditions into the PLC, using the ladder logic, the most preferred programming language. The logic developed controls operations such as filling and capping of bottles. The PLC-based automatic bottle-filling machine senses the presence of a bottle and the amount of liquid, and then fills according to the specified volume.

Global MES market in bottling industry

The global MES market in the bottling industry was valued at USD 189.5 million in 2015. MES acts as a link between production automation and ERP systems. These systems generate work orders for the bottling plant based on the number of orders received from customers. They compress the production data from the bottling plant in real time and build information that is precisely adapted to the information needs of plant managers and higher decision makers. MES enables sequencing of work based on priority, resource requirements, attributes, and set-up time. An exact calculation of the time spent is compiled from each independent operation with the added complexity of parallel operations. MES operates a real-time dispatch for the production operations, supervises the process control systems, helps to decide the routes that the bottles follow through the system, and when and where operations on production must start. Decisions that alter the previously established schedule can be easily accounted for and production can be routed accordingly due to real-time feedback loop.

Global motion control market in bottling industry

The motion control market in the bottling industry was valued at USD 423.7 million in 2015. Motion control products are widely used for labeling and packaging of beverages in the bottling industry. Labeling is the process of applying labels and decoration in all types of packaging containers, display, point-of-sale, and transit packs. Labels are used to brand a product or provide information about the product to end-users. These may contain batch, pre-printed bar codes, and supply and price information for retailers and consumers. Packaging and labeling ease transportation, storage, and promotion of products to a large extent. Apart from providing convenience in handling products, they give essential information about specific products, such as price, contents, place of manufacturing or assembling, and point of contact in the event of any issue. Motion control equipment forms the core system of packaging and labeling machinery in the bottling industry.
