Plastic Pails Market: Overview
Manufacturers across industries are gradually shifting to cheaper yet efficient packaging solution to overcome bulk packaging challenges. The shift from the manufacturing of metal to plastic packaging solutions has entirely changed the market landscape over the last two decades. Thus, novel packaging solutions such as plastic pails, which are lighter in weight as well as comparatively cost-effective, play a defining role in overcoming these challenges. Plastic pails are cylinder-shaped containers, usually with a capacity of about 3 liters to 50 liters, primarily used for the storage of liquid/powder products.
Plastic Pails Market: Dynamics
The increasing demand from food & beverage ingredients, oil lubricants and chemical sectors is expected to be the key driving factor for the global plastic pails market. Globally, industrial chemical manufacturers are inclined towards the use of cost-effective and lightweight yet long-lasting packaging solutions for bulk liquid packaging requirements. Plastic pails meet these requirements and thus, find foremost application in the industrial chemical sector. Additionally, the growing demand for dyes, coating, paints, adhesives, etc. across varied geographies is playing a pivotal role in propelling the demand for plastic pails.
Fluctuation of raw material (polymer) prices for the manufacturing of plastic pails is anticipated to be a prime restraining factor for the global plastic pails market growth.
