Global Conductive Plastic Boxes: An Overview

Conductive plastic boxes are one of the ideal solutions to prevent damage to devices from ESD.  Conductive plastic boxes offer a cost effective solution to packaging and material handling applications of components which are static sensitive. There is high demand for conductive plastic boxes to dissipate static and distribute charges. Conductive plastic boxes can be thought of as one component belonging to a large Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection system. Therefore, manufacturers of conductive plastic boxes also focus on custom manufactured conductive inserts to provide complete protection. To ensure that their conductive plastic boxes protect devices from typical electromagnetic interference, manufacturers emphasize on boxes with high impact strength. High efficiency and durability have led to increasingly use of conductive plastic boxes for military purposes. Apart from that, conductive plastic boxes are also used in for medical equipment, automotive parts, and in the aerospace industry, among others. The outlook for conductive plastic boxes market is expected to be positive during the forecast period.

Global Conductive Plastic Boxes: Dynamics

The global conductive plastic boxes market is expected to witness sizeable demand during the next ten years. Conductive plastic boxes are available in a variety of configurations and are mostly used for shipping and storage purposes. One of the most common hurdles in the electronics industry is the movement of static sensitive products such as circuit boards in production plants and from contract manufacturing sites to the OEMs. This is where conductive plastic boxes come in. The conventional way is to pack the boards in a bag, and load them onto corrugated totes. However, with the advent of ESD packaging formats such as conductive plastic boxes, logistics is witnessing a quick shift from traditional ESD protection methods. One of the key drivers for the conductive plastic boxes market is the availability of returnable transport packaging. Although the corrugated totes used in traditional methods have low cost, conductive plastic boxes are helpful in the long run, as they can be reused, unlike corrugated totes. End use industries such as the healthcare ad defense are expected to witness increased investment from developing countries in the next decade. Therefore, most of the growth factors are expected to be contributed from developing countries.
