Rigid Bulk Packaging

As Quoted In Plastics News

Demand for rigid bulk packaging in the US is projected to advance 4.3 percent annually through 2015. Material handling containers and RIBCs will be the fastest growing types. Drums will remain the largest segment, with growth accelerating based on a rebound in chemical output. Durable goods markets will outpace the dominant nondurables segment.

This study analyzes the $5.4 billion US rigid bulk packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by material, product (e.g., drums, pails, bulk boxes, material handling containers, RIBCs) and market (e.g., chemicals and pharmaceuticals; food and beverages; plastic, rubber and fiber; petroleum and lubricants; agricultural and horticultural products; durable goods).

The study also considers marker environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including Greif, BWAY and MAUSER.
