Increasing Demand from the Chemical Industry will be a Key Market Trend

The increased demand from the chemical industry is another major growth driver. Chemicals such as methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, and sodium hypochlorite are generally very sensitive to external conditions of temperature, pressure, and moisture. Effective packaging must be ensured for their well-being and to reduce their potential hazards to the environment. Chemicals are mainly transported in plastic returnable packaging materials, such as IBCs and FIBCs, which ensure the safety of hazardous chemicals stored in returnable packaging containers. These plastic containers are made from polymers such as copolymers and polypropylene, which are inert to the reactive nature of chemicals.
