Key Takeaways

  • The use of IBCs is surging at a significant pace for efficient transportation of products including paints, coatings, and dyes. Rigid IBCs are one the suitable packaging solutions for the shipping of harmful and corrosive fluids.

  • From a storage point of view as well, the IBCs play a vital role. Paints, coatings, and dyes are a demanding industry that requires storage and transport containers, which can endure various chemicals and successfully deliver the product without affecting its quality.

  • According to the reports of the American Coatings Association, the majority of the paints and coatings products tick all the boxes set for hazardous materials and are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) in reference to the current regulations for rail, highway, air, and sea transportation.

  • The demand for IBCs is expected to bolster as it secures transportation of hazardous products in the paints, coatings, and dyes industry. Attributing to the aforementioned factors, the demand for plastic rigid IBCs is expected to surge at a rapid pace in the coming decade.

  • Reconditioned IBCs go through several processes including washing, furnace oxidation, and others. These are then dried, reinforced, and purified of all the residues from their last use. Reusing IBCs has a more positive effect on the environment than turning them into scrap.

  • Surging environmental concerns over recycling and safe degradation of packaging containers have resulted in the implications of new regulations and policies. Therefore, the implementation of strict rules for companies in order to reuse their containers with previous leftovers may spread cross-contamination.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent key players in the plastic rigid IBC market are concentrating on expanding their product portfolios in order to cater to the growing demand for bulk packaging. In addition to that, some of the other key players are focusing on surging their capabilities and resources with the help of mergers and acquisitions.
