Growing need for a non-erroneous means of cross border transportation has led to the demand for composite IBC. Not only this, containerization has also led to significantly low costs for the shipping industry. Composite IBCs are lightweight as well as space saving containers due to which they are highly preferred by the end use customers. Composite IBCs ensure non spillage of the packaged product and ensure safe transit as compared to their traditional counterparts. Budding cross trade activities across the globe has also led to increasing demand for composite IBCs. The global composite IBC market is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR attributed to high demand from the industrial chemicals end use segment.
Global Composite IBCs Market: Dynamics
Large petroleum oil production and exports propels the need for bulk container packaging. Shipping costs have significantly reduced for the end users, as the number of labour personnel required for the loading and unloading process has also significantly reduced due to composite IBCs. Composite IBCs are non-corrosive in nature which makes them ideal for the transportation of almost all types of products, thus catering to a large base of end users which further spurs the demand of the global composite IBC market. Growing preference for the flexible intermediate bulk container is a major factor restraining the growth of the global composite IBC market. Moreover, escalation in the raw material prices has led to significantly high cost of composite IBCs, thus hampering the market growth. Use of composite IBCs for dry bulk shipping is likely to create new opportunities of growth for the global composite IBC market. Use of bio based raw materials for the production of composite IBC is a key trend prevailing in the global composite IBC market.
