Industrial Bulk Chemical Packaging Market Overview
The industrial bulk chemical packaging market size was worth US$ XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Industrial bulk chemical packaging is used to store and transport various types of chemicals such as Consumer Chemicals, specialty channels, basic inorganic chemicals, hazardous chemicals and petrochemicals. The industrial bulk chemical packaging solutions available in the market include various types of drums, flexitanks, rigid IBCs and others. The industrial bulk chemical packaging products are available in various capacity sizes ranging from 100 liters to over 500 liters. The governmental regulations and guidelines associated with the storage and shipment of the chemicals will impact the market.
Industrial Bulk Chemical Packaging Market Dynamics
The global industrial bulk chemical packaging market is expected to drive with growing international trade and demand for cost-effective solutions.
Growing international trade
The growing international trade is expected to drive the global industrial bulk chemical packaging market in the forecast period. The trade growth between the countries has been influenced by several factors such as developing technology, industrial activities, governments decisions, increasing competition, new trade agreements, etc.
The growing chemical trade among the countries creates a massive need for industrial bulk chemical packaging. For instance, The U.S was the leading chemical importer with US$ 285 billion (EUR 243 billion) and exporting value of US$ 236 billion (EUR 201 billion). In comparison, China import and export of chemicals accounted for US$ 230 billion (EUR 196 billion) and US$ 170 billion (EUR 145 billion). The European chemical surplus grew from US$ 103 billion (EUR 88 billion) in 2010 to US$ 209 billion (EUR 178 billion) in 2020, equivalent to average annual growth of 7.3 %.
The companies have been forming various strategies and making new developments in the field with increasing scope and competition in the market. For instance, in 2018, Four packaging firms BWAY, National Container Group, Mauser Group and Industrial Container Services, integrated a new sustainability-focused firm, Mauser Packaging Solutions. The company will now offer packaging solutions in chemicals, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, etc.
Shortage of industrial packaging
The shortage of industrial packaging is responsible for restraining the growth of the industrial bulk chemical packaging market in the forecast period. The shortage resulted from the delay of many containers and drums by several weeks or the containers are stuck in the wrong ports and hindered production capacity due to staff absenteeism, creating shortages of industrial bulk chemical packaging globally.
Moreover, there has been a continual rise in polymer and steel prices, affecting industrial bulk chemical packaging production in the present scenario. Various countries have been reducing trade or increasing taxes on trade, affecting the market growth. For example, China has increased export tax rebates on propylene, ethylene, and ethylene glycol.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the industrial bulk chemical packaging industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. Production and demand was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally as the industrial bulk chemical packaging market is dependent on the trade and demand for the chemicals globally.
The market was negatively impacted by the huge decline in the logistics sector. The downfall in international trade and the closing of ports for a long time have directly impacted the growth of industrial bulk chemical packaging. In 2019, the world's top nine of the top ten importing countries reported negative growth rates for exports and imports. Shipping rates of containers are a significant component of trade costs, so the new price hike poses an additional challenge to the world economy. As a result, it struggles to recover from the global crisis.
Industrial Bulk Chemical Packaging Market Segment Analysis
By product type, the industrial bulk chemical packaging market is broadly classified into intermediate bulk container (IBC), drums, flexitanks and others.
The intermediate bulk container is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period
The intermediate bulk container is expected to hold the largest market for the industrial bulk chemical packaging market and are expected to continue their dominance in the forecast period. IBCs are used to transport and store various types of chemicals. The end-userrs emphasize IBC due to its potential benefits such as efficient use of space, less labor cost, freight and storage costs and elimination of disposal. The containers are available in various types of materials such as plastic, steel and composites. Moreover, the intermediate bulk containers are also offered on a rental basis, offering cost-effective solutions to the consumers.
The companies have been extending their IBC range in the region with the growing demand. For instance, in 2020- Schoeller Allibert, the market leader in recyclable, reusable and returnable plastic packaging solutions, has launched ChemiFlow, a U.N. approved Intermediate Bulk Container designed to transport hazardous and highly corrosive chemicals.
In 2018- Greif has launched GCUBE Shield, marking an important enhancement to its range of GCUBE intermediate bulk containers. Agrochemicals will be better protected against gasses lost, retaining their characteristics to ensuring product effectiveness and performance.
