Furthermore, huge demand of cooking oil in in the emerging economies is rapidly being fulfilled with the help of kegs ultimately acting as a growth propagator in the global kegs market.

Kegs manufacturers have witnessed increasing demand from countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and Brazil where alcohol consumption has been increased tremendously in the last two decades. This has led to an increase in the demand of the kegs from emerging nations creating long term sustainable demand for the kegs. As the raw material used for the process of manufacturing of kegs have steadily increased over the last couple of years, kegs manufacturers are facing the challenge of declining profitability margins coupled with low alternatives available in the market.

Across the globe, kegs manufactures are increasingly facing the challenge of keg loss due to the non-return, damage or improper handling of kegs.
