Market Definition

Intermediate bulk containers are industrial-grade containers with closed shipping vessels with a liquid capacity from 119 to 793 gallons. They are projected for transporting and storing liquids defined in the U.S. and code of federal regulations recommendations on the transport of hazardous goods, which include flammable and combustible liquids. IBCs can be manufactured by plastic, metal or a composite of materials. Composite IBCs are normally a combination of blow-moulded plastic containers in a plastic cage or a metal cage in a corrugated box.

Global Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Rising Demand in Industrial Packaging and Storage Market

The rising storage and industrial packaging storage market due to a growth in international trade and the rising demand for lucrative bulk packaging has raised the demand for IBC (intermediate bulk containers) market globally. The factors such as the production and financial benefits expanded from renting IBCs include capital savings and rental tax with improved inventory management are expected to enhancing the growth of the IBC (intermediate bulk containers) market.

  •  High Demand in Food Industry

Intermediate bulk container is mostly used in the food industry to store powdered ingredients, such as flour or dispense liquids, such as syrups or beverages. The large number of food-grade IBCs are made up of stainless steel, because it is easily clean and normally meets with food safety standards due to this increase the demand of Intermediate bulk container which are expected to drive the market growth rate.

Opportunities

  • Rising Demand in Various Industries

The surge in demand for safe chemical storage and transportation provides a substantial growth opportunity for IBCs. IBCs are widely used in the chemical industry for storing and transporting various types of chemicals. Their robust construction and compatibility with a range of chemical substances make them a preferred choice. In the food and beverage sector, IBCs are utilized for the storage and transportation of liquid and bulk products such as juices, syrups, edible oils, and more. The food-grade materials used in IBC construction ensure product safety.

  • Advancements in Material Technology

Ongoing development of innovative materials, such as lightweight and durable composites, can significantly improve the performance and longevity of IBCs. Traditional IBCs have often been made of HDPE due to its durability and chemical resistance. Advancements in HDPE technology have further improved its strength, impact resistance, and resistance to UV degradation. This ensures a longer lifespan and better performance in challenging environments.

Restraints/Challenges

  • High Initial Investment

The upfront cost of acquiring IBCs may be a barrier, particularly for smaller enterprises, and requires careful consideration. High-quality materials such as advanced polymers, stainless steel, or composite materials contribute to the durability and performance of IBCs. These materials are often more expensive than standard options but offer better resistance to chemicals, impacts, and environmental conditions. Advanced manufacturing processes, such as blow molding, rotational molding, or specialized welding techniques for stainless steel IBCs, can increase production costs. Precision and quality control measures during manufacturing contribute to the overall cost of producing reliable and safe IBCs.

  • Global Economic Uncertainties

Economic fluctuations and uncertainties can impact the demand for IBCs, particularly in industries sensitive to economic conditions, necessitating adaptive strategies.Adhering to manufacturer guidelines and working with experienced HVAC professionals can provide valuable insights and ensure proper maintenance practices are followed. Also, the lack of favorable reimbursement scenarios and technology penetration in the developing economies, heavy custom duty imposed on medical devices, and lack of suitable infrastructure in low- and middle-income countries are projected to challenge the market in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.
