Increasing Applicability of Steel Drums

Steel drums are used for storage and transportation of both hazardous and non-hazardous materials such as chemicals, coatings, paints and oil, etc. Steel drums are prepared by the process of roll forming, then welded by the electric resistance welding method, and lastly coated and painted. Recyclability, compactness, and excellent performance in a wide range of temperature are the main reasons why steel drums are preferred over alternatives like fiber and plastic drums. The two main categories of steel drums are tight-head steel drums and open-head steel drums.

Tight or closed-head steel drums are generally used to store low-viscous fluids while open-head steel drums are convenient for storing hazardous liquids and solids. Steel drums have an interior coating of epoxy or epoxy phenolic. Steel drums are available in a wide variety, ranging from below 25-gallons to 400-gallons. The 55-gallon steel drum is used as a standard as it provides high convenience. It is considered that 55 gallon steel drums can be handled easily without the use of special tools or machines. Moreover, they are an excellent container for fire resistance and durability.

Regional Outlook: Steel Drums Market

Emerging economies such as China & India have high potential in the steel drums market owing to the growth in the retail sector and the increasing manufacturing sector. The APEJ region is witnessing a headway in the consumption of steel drums for exporting oil, chemicals, & solvents. Oil exporters in South East Asian countries including Indonesia and Malaysia are preferring steel drums over other bulk packaging products.

Steel drums provide higher operational efficiency and effectiveness in shipping bulk quantities of commodities in liquid form. Steel drums have emerged as an efficient transport packaging solution for shipment of other non-hazardous materials such as chemicals, paints, dyes, etc. Countries in the APEJ region with strong agricultural output are improving their export volume by implementing effective means of storage, transport, and packaging solutions. Therefore, the outlook for the global steel drums market is expected to be positive during the forecast period.

Recyclability & Reconditioning is the ongoing trend in Steel Drums Market

The main factor driving the steel drum market is its ability to be reconditioned or recycled for reuse. This factor ranks steel drums high in sustainability and leads to significant back-end cost savings. The recycling helps in cutting back the expenses incurred during storage and shipping. Another trend in the steel drums market is the use of a fusible plug that dramatically increases the safety and security of a steel drum when shipping and warehousing flammable and combustible materials. However, steel drums are facing high competition due to other alternatives such as plastic drums.
