Asia’s Prospering Export Potential Favors Steel Drums Adoption
“Being one of the key industries driving the demand for steel drums, the resurgence of chemicals domain has been benefiting steel drums manufacturers in recent past. Growing market value of industrial bulk containers is directly translating into the propelling demand for steel drums for industrial applications,” says a senior research analyst at the company. “Developing Asian economies are likely to create a heap of investment opportunities in the chemicals & solvents, oil & gas, and export industries,” the analyst adds further.
A steadily improving scenario of chemicals, solvents, and oil export across APEJ, especially in Southeast Asian countries, is favoring the growth of steel drums market in the region. While exporters are preferring steel drums for bulk packaging, it is more likely that steel drums would encounter lucrative opportunities in the non-hazardous materials packaging and transport section owing to their attributes facilitating the shipment.
Recycling & Reconditioning Trend the Steel Drums Market
As stated by the American Iron & Steel Institute, steel has a recycling rate of approximately 88% and is recyclable at a level higher than that of any other metal or the combination of other metals and materials. Besides sustainability, the US Department of Transportation ranks steel drums as the safest bulk containers when it comes to recoding incident rates. The lowest insurance rates associated with shipment of steel drums is another factor pushing their adoption at a global level.
Exceptional recyclability without performance degradation will remain the top factor pushing the preference of recycled steel drums across the supply chain. Reconditioning for the reuse of steel drums is currently trending the market, which is poised to shape the market expansion over the next few years.
