Global Carbon Steel IBC Market: Overview
Carbon steel IBC is an industrial grade reusable container for bulk storage and is painted exterior with carbon steel. Carbon steel IBC is used for transporting and storing bulk liquids. Carbon steel IBC is also known as a tote and is capable of stacking and can be moved by a pallet jack or forklift. Carbon steel IBC is an ideal choice when it comes to the storage of oil and lubricants. Carbon steel IBC is extremely impact resistant, durable and works well in the non-corrosive chemical environment. Carbon steel IBC I less expensive than stainless steel IBC. Carbon steel IBC is lighter and cheaper than stainless steel. Carbon steel is a metal alloy made up of a combination of two elements, iron and carbon. Carbon is the principal hardening and strengthening material in the steel. Due to its hardness, carbon steel IBC is durable. Carbon steel IBC is more susceptible to rust than stainless steel IBC. Carbon steel IBC is reusable, allows easy filling and dispensing and are environmentally friendly as they reduce clean-up and disposal concerns. Carbon steel IBC is a lightweight and less expensive alternative to stainless steel IBC. Factors driving the carbon steel IBC market are the strength, high fatigue strength, low weight, and toughness. Carbon steel IBC’s capacities range from 110 gallons to 550 gallons. Double walled carbon steel IBC is also available with built-in secondary containment. Carbon steel IBC has a sloped bottom for uniform and complete drainage.
Global Carbon Steel IBC Market: Dynamics
Industrial bulk packaging market has been growing steadily since the past few years and is expected to continue growing in the foreseeable future. Among all other bulk packaging products, IBC’s have exhibited the fastest growth rate. The need for high-performance packaging solutions, growth in the domestic chemicals industry, optimal packaging design and increase in sustainability initiatives drives the carbon steel IBC market.
