This study analyzes the global bulk packaging industry. Products covered include flexible and bulk packaging. Flexible products include:

  • shipping sacks
  • film wrap
  • flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs)
  • strapping
  • liners
  • roll wrap

Rigid bulk packaging products include:

  • drums
  • pails
  • bulk boxes
  • rigid intermediate bulk containers (RIBCs)
  • material handling containers

Excluded from this study are nonpackaging applications for textile sacks, such as money bags and sand bags for flood control; pallets and wood containers; and corrugated and solid fiberboard containers other than bulk boxes and corrugated rigid intermediate bulk containers. The study also excludes cans, bottles, jars, and tubs used for the retail packaging of bulk sizes of foods and other consumer goods.

Markets for these products include:

  • chemicals and pharmaceuticals
  • food and beverages
  • other nondurable goods such as agricultural and horticultural products
  • durable goods such as building materials
  • other markets such as hazardous waste storage and handling

The agricultural chemical market is included with chemicals, while the animal feed market is included with agricultural and horticultural products.

Historical data (2006, 2011, and 2016) and forecasts for 2021 are presented for global bulk packaging demand in current US dollars (including inflation) by product and market on a country-by-country and region-by-region basis. The terms “shipments”, “production”, and “output” are used interchangeably in the study, as are the terms “demand”, “sales”, and “market”, which are defined as domestic shipments, plus imports, minus exports.
