Aseptic IBC Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)


Rising concerns about the safety of products during storage and transportation has prompted manufacturers to look for innovative packaging solutions that not only help in the better handling of sensitive products but also provide optimum hygienic conditions. This has brought aseptic intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) market into the spotlight.

Aseptic intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) are innovative packaging solutions used for storing and transporting bulk liquids, powders or semi solids. These packaging solutions provide optimum hygienic environment for the packed products, reduce the chances of spillage, and thus play a key role in extending their life. They also minimize the need for using preservatives while maintaining organoleptic properties of packaged products.

In recent years, aseptic IBCs have gained immense popularity across industries for transporting large masses of sensitive products such as food & beverages, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and paints. These aseptic containers are known for their sturdiness, hygiene, and ability to handle pressure during transportation through long distances.

During aseptic packaging, sterilized products like liquids and semi solids are packed/inserted into the intermediate bulk containers in a sterile environment to eliminate the risk of contamination or change in quality of packed products. It is perhaps due to this safe and contaminant free nature that end-use industries such as pharmaceutical, chemicals, and food & beverages find aseptic IBCs packaging specifically useful. Rising adoption of aseptic IBCs for storing and transporting large volumes of sensitive products across various end-use industries will therefore continue to provide a strong thrust to the growth of aseptic IBC market during the forecast period.

Aseptic IBCs have also become a preferred choice for packaging and shipping hazardous or flammable chemicals. These containers are usually reusable and thus are considered environmentally friendly. They are available in different sizes and capacities which enables end users to choose any products as per their specific requirements. This factor is likely to assist market growth in the forthcoming years.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Aseptic IBC Market Growth?

Robust expansion of end-use industries due to rapidly growing population and increasing disposable income, rising need for better hygienic packaging solutions, innovations in aseptic IBCs, and growing consumer awareness about the impact of packaging solutions on product life span.

Demand for aseptic IBCs has grown substantially during the last few years due to their growing popularity across multiple end-use industries. These aseptic containers have become standard packaging solutions used across pharmaceutical, chemicals, and food and beverage industries for storage and transportation of bulk materials. They are more durable, cost-effective, and provide maximum protection to packaged products by eliminating the threat of microbes, spillage, and other deteriorating forces.

Rising adoption of aseptic IBCs for maintaining optimum hygiene for sensitive applications in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries is projected to boost the sales of aseptic IBCs during the forecast period.

Aseptic IBCs are being increasingly used for transporting a wide range of sensitive products including alcohol, fruit concentrates, pharmaceuticals, dyes, paints, animal oils, and food additives among others.

Similarly, flourishing import and export business across the globe is generating sales prospects for aseptic IBCs and the trend is likely to prevail during the forthcoming years.

In addition to this, growing consumer awareness about the ecofriendly nature of aseptic IBCs coupled with surging demand for advanced transportation and logistics facilities across developing economies is anticipated to further expand the size of aseptic INC market in the forthcoming years.
