Global Chemical & Petroleum Containers Market: Overview

Chemical & petroleum containers include bottles, buckets, drums, cans, vials & ampoules, jars, and jerry cans. These packaging formats can be made of materials such as plastic, metal, glass, and steel.

Storing products and chemicals such as heating oil, diesel fuel, gasoline, acids, and bases in chemical & petroleum containers or in tanks, whether underground or above ground, raises concerns about leaks, spills, and overfills. Chemical & petroleum containers are made of Polyethylene (PE), Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), tin-coated steel, and other metals. According to a study, chemical & petroleum containers made of PE showed reduction in the octane number of gasoline when stored for several months. Reduction in the octane number causes problems in the quality of products. The surface analysis of the PE storage chemical & petroleum containers kept indoors showed that the gasoline permeated into the surface of the containers. Thus, tin-coated steel chemical & petroleum containers are used for the storage of gasoline, as they are less affected by external influences as compared to PE. Chemical & petroleum containers and their foundations offer protection to their contents from all forms of internal & external wear, vibration, shock, corrosion, fire, heat, vacuum, and pressure, the failure of which is likely to result in personal or environmental damage. Chemical & petroleum containers are coated internally with coatings that are compatible with the substance stored. Hence, the global chemical & petroleum containers market is expected to witness significant growth in the Asia region due to urbanization and industrialization.

Global Chemical & Petroleum Containers Market: Overview

Packaging materials are required to contain and preserve materials, permit safe transportation, and serve as a means of informing end customers of the material characteristics of the contents. The supply chain for chemical & petroleum containers comprises raw material suppliers, transport providers, end-product manufacturers, packaging waste contractors, and recycling service providers. The growth of the chemical industry is contributing to the growth of the global chemical & petroleum containers market. The preference for plastic chemical & petroleum containers over metal due to their suitability of usage with chemicals and petroleum products is driving the chemical & petroleum containers market. Moreover, plastic chemical & petroleum containers are well-suited for intermodal transportation and can be shipped anywhere in the world without having to rely on any single given mode of transport. All chemical & petroleum containers must be clearly and correctly labelled so that people are aware of their contents and hazards. Various chemicals in liquid, solid, or gaseous forms are required by numerous manufacturing industries, which include food & beverages, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, textiles, etc. Furthermore, the demand for petroleum products for the manufacturing of grease, lubricants, and certain oils is expected to propel the chemical & petroleum containers market.
