Future Market Insights delivers key insights on the global IBC liners market in its recent report, titled “Global IBC Liners Market: Industry Analysis 2013-2027 and Opportunity Assessment, 2018-2028.” In terms of value, the IBC liners market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period and is expected to be valued beyond a billion dollar by the end of 2028, which can be attributed to numerous factors, about which FMI offers thorough insights and forecast in this report.

IBC Liners Market: Overview

IBC liners are flexible bulk bags used for storage and transportation of bulk liquid and powdered or granular products. IBC liners are single-use, which leads to reduced contamination and costs incurred for reconditioning or washing of the intermediate bulk container. Various materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, EVOH, polyamide, and aluminium can be used for manufacturing IBC liners.

Manufacturers mainly offer IBC liners of two types- form-fit cube-shaped IBC liners and pillow-shaped IBC liners. Adoption of intermediate bulk containers in the global industrial packaging industry is on the rise, which can be attributed to cost-effectiveness and ease of handling that it promises to offer. This factor is expected to boost the sales of IBC liners. IBC liners facilitate easy retrieval of content and help in keeping the IBC clean.

Demand Generation from Manufacturing & Trade Activities Gaining Prominence

The demand for IBCs is proportional to the manufacturing and export activities. Countries with higher production capabilities offer high demand for IBCs, which directly translates in the demand for IBC liners. China generates the largest industrial output in the world, followed by the U.S., and is one of the top exporters of steel, automobiles, electronics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. This has resulted in a steep increase in demand for bulk container packaging solutions and hence, has fuelled the growth of the IBC liners market in both the regions. The North America IBC liners market is anticipated to represent an incremental opportunity of US$ 23 Mn by the end of 2022, while the China IBC liners market is projected to expand 1.5 times of its current value in the next five years.

Logistics & Cross Border Trade Represents Remunerative Growth Opportunities

Economies in the Latin America region have shown tremendous growth in manufacturing, as well as the services sector in the past few years. Many infrastructure projects are being initiated in Latin America such as the IIRSA, for the integration of the regional infrastructure in South America for linking the region’s economy through transportation, energy, and telecommunication projects. The project is expected to present lucrative opportunities for the regional industrial packaging market aiding the growth of the regional IBC liners market during the forecast period.

IBC Liners Paving Way for Cost Optimization in Bulk Packaging Landscape

South Asia and East Asia together, are expected to account for more than 1/3rd of the global IBC liners market. South Asia is witnessing significant growth attributed to increasing exports and the presence of many small-scale local manufacturers of IBC liners contributing to generating sales. Moreover, the cost of IBC liners is much less than the cost incurred in the reconditioning of IBCs, which helps manufacturers in reducing overall production costs. This has aided in fuelling the growth of IBC liners in the region.
