August 2019 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global industrial bulk packaging market size is projected to reach USD 28.4 billion by 2025, escalating at a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Bulk packaging products are expected to witness high penetration in the chemicals & petrochemicals sector over the forecast period. Industrial bulk packaging solutions have witnessed increased demand in the recent years owing to rising global industrial output, most notably in Asia Pacific.

The rising demand for reducing the cost of transportation and storage of industrial fluids across industries is another factor bolstering the consumption of industrial bulk packaging products. In this regard, products such as IBCs and pails are increasingly consumed to ensure optimal space utilization, thereby contributing favorably to industry growth. The industry is also driven by steps initiated by various governments around the world to increase domestic production of petrochemicals.

The Government of India (GoI) recently initiated a perspective planning concerning the petrochemical industry to boost domestic capacities (petrochemicals) as a part of its Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemicals Investment Region (PCPIR) policy. Such initiatives offer healthy prospects for industry growth. In terms of application, chemicals & petrochemicals segment emerged as the largest segment in 2018, holding a share of 40.1%

Pharmaceuticals segment is poised to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period with the rising need for product safety (pharmaceuticals) coupled with advancements in scientific stacking methods (bulk packaging). Furthermore, increasing focus on the reduction of pharmaceutical wastage both during loading and unloading necessitates the employment of bulk packing products. The presence of aging population in Europe has been creating a substantial demand for industrial bulk packaging products in the pharmaceuticals space in the region.

North America emerged as one of the prominent regions for industrial bulk packaging. The U.S. was observed to be the most prominent market in North America and is characterized by the presence of leading international industry players. Furthermore, the North American market has been witnessing an increasing adoption of novel packaging products including flexible IBCs over the years. Such factors are expected to strengthen the regional market in the near future.
