PP Container Liner Market: An Overview
Container liners are widely used in the logistics & transportation industry, mostly to transport bulk materials across the globe. Polypropylene and polyethylene are the most commonly used materials for manufacturing container liners. Adoption of PP container liners has witnessed a steady rise as they significantly enhance the usability of the container. Use of PP container liner eliminates the need for cleaning the container after each use.
Furthermore, this makes retrieval of goods an easy task at an economical cost. According to Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO), container shipping is growing at a Y-O-Y of 4.1% in 2018 as compared to 3.3% in 2017. This is expected to be the key driving force for the PP container liner market.
PP Container Liner Market: Dynamics
An increase in penetration of PP container liner has been cited over their rigid bulk counterparts. A PP container liner can carry up to approximately 1,000 times its weight. They are compact and light in weight, this leads to a reduction in transportation cost. These characteristics make them a viable alternative for transporting goods. Moreover, the use of PP container liners keep the packaged goods free from contamination and puts a barrier against moisture & air.
Other than typical applications, PP container liners are being used for dry bulk shipping, which includes automotive & machinery parts. Using conventional rigid packaging formats increased transportation cost and weight, which ultimately resulted in the hiked price of the shipped products. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the global dry bulk shipping industry increased by 4% in 2017 as compared to 2016. This is expected to create remunerative opportunities for the growth of PP container liner market in the next decade. Moreover, PP container liners are replacing corrugated boxes due to higher durability and moisture resistance, this is further expected to strengthen the demand for PP container liners in the global market.
