Carbon Steel Drums Capture over 90% of Total Sales
Carbon steel easily aligns with the demand for light-weight and durable packaging material, as such, continues to be the material of choice for manufacturing steel drums over the projection period. Despite being a niche category in the manufacturing world, its economical nature is fueling its adoption for transportation of heavy-duty packages. In 2019, carbon steel drums worth around US$ 11 Bn were sold and the number is likely to increase at a steady pace.
East Asia - The Mecca of Market Growth
At present, East Asia is the trade hub for steel drums market, capturing half of total demand, while the adoption in South Asia is soaring at a rapid CAGR of 5.1%. Represented by China and India respectively, the market growth in these developing regions is attributable to swelling chemical and steel production. Moreover, abundance of raw materials, and cheaper manufacturing processes are influencing manufacturers to shift their production lines to the developing Asia. This study estimates that the Asian steel drums market will register a collective revenue of around US$ 10 Bn by the end of foreseeable timeframe.
RFID Technology for Cost Cutting and Better Customer Service
Manufacturers are equipping steel drums with various track and trace technologies such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) that automatically identify and record data about the location and availability of steel drums. RFID technology bridges the supply-demand gap that occurs due to delay in supply of steel drums, as well as allow suppliers to validate the availability of steel drums to avoid unnecessary costs of expendable forms of packaging formats. This, in turn, boosts overall efficiency, and improves commercial ties between manufacturers and customers.
55 gallon steel drums hold over 90% share
Capacity other than 55 gallon to see sluggish traction
Tight head to take lead
Increasing demand for open head
Carbon steel remain in-demand
Demand growth of stainless steel drums to dip
High adoption in chemicals
Increasing usages in petroleum & lubricants
How Growth will Unfold
Adoption of steel drums in cargo shipping and freight transportation of chemicals will remain strong going forward through 2029, owing to rising chemical trade activities. Particularly in commodity chemicals, use of steel drums in this end-use category currently accounts for nearly 35% market share and the trend is expected to grow promisingly in the opportune time. On the other hand, manufacturers are also viewing petroleum & lubricants as a lucrative application, despite capturing relatively lesser share in market revenues.
