Bulk Container Packaging Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Product (Bulk Containers, Flexitanks, Bulk Container Liners), End User (Industrial Chemicals, Food and Beverages, Pharmaceutical), and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Bulk Container Packaging market is accounted for $3.65 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $8.97 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors propelling the market growth include increasing use of flexitank among regional end-user industries, growing export of bulk container packed products, increasing transportation of oils and other materials in bulk across the globe, increasing export of food products and pharmaceuticals materials, and rising exploration of dry or free-flowing chemicals and agricultural products worldwide. However, growing environmental concerns over the use of plastic is restraining the market growth.
A bulk container is designed to store and transport bulk liquid and granulated substances, such as food ingredients, solvents, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, among others, in large quantities. Bulk container packages are transported in a range of vehicles, from humongous cargo ships to even super long monster truck trailers. Bulk containers are generally manufactured by using petrochemicals such as polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE). Bulk packaging containers are used across various industries, however, it is dominated by the food industry, followed by the chemical industry. These are used for storing and transporting dry as well as liquid food products. They serve as an ideal replacement for corrugated boxes and plastic containers. Owing to promising product use in the food industry, the overall bulk container packaging market is hugely influenced by growth in this sector.
By product, the drum segment is projected to record robust growth in the global face mask market during the forecast period. Drums are cylindrical containers used for the shipping of bulk cargo. They are often certified for the shipment of dangerous goods that are substances, solids, liquids, or gases that can harm people. Dangerous goods include materials that are radioactive, flammable, explosive, corrosive, oxidizing, asphyxiating, biohazardous, toxic, pathogenic, or allergenic, such as ammonia, hydrogen, etc. Therefore, increasing the shipments and trade of these hazardous goods may drive the use of bulk drums. For instance, majorly used in transporting hazardous goods, drums made of steel prove to be more beneficial. This is because, steel is durable and reliable, and performs well in both cold and hot temperatures, and is fire-resistant. This makes it an ideal match for drums containing combustible or flammable materials.
On the basis of geography, North America region is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in the market over the forecast period, due to increasing corn, oilseeds, grains such as soybean, and feeds demand from the U.S. The region is engaged in exporting alcoholic beverages including beer and wine globally in large volume. The United States is one of the largest markets for bulk containers, globally. The increasing expansion in the chemical industry, owing to the newfound shale resources, is expected to strengthen the demand for bulk containers, in the region. Also, the country’s immense exports from the chemical and pharmaceutical sector keep a constant demand for the rigid bulk containers, such as drums and pails. The country also has a well-established reconditioning infrastructure, boosting pooling networks, across the country.
