Demand for rigid bulk packaging in the US is expected to expand 3.3 percent per year to $7.2 billion in 2020, spurred primarily by a favorable production outlook for chemicals and pharmaceuticals, the largest market for rigid bulk packaging products. The popularity of reusable systems, which are sold at a higher price than products intended for single use, will sustain value gains, though a less-frequent replacement rate will mitigate growth somewhat.

This study analyzes the US market for rigid bulk packaging. Historical data (2005, 2010, and 2015) and forecasts for 2020 and 2025 are presented for pails, drums, bulk boxes, material handling containers, and rigid intermediate bulk containers (RIBCs). Markets for these products include chemicals and pharmaceuticals; food and beverages; durable goods; plastic, rubber, and fiber products; petroleum and lubricants; agricultural and horticultural products; and other (e.g., hazardous waste storage and handling).
