Global Chemical Packaging Market Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts 2021-2026 - Growing Demand for Fixed IBC's in industrial Establishments to Drive Growth -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Chemical Packaging Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to's offering.

The Chemical Packaging Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.23% during the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The production of specialty chemicals took a significant hit as the global production declined by 11.2%, and especially for specialty chemicals such as coatings, the production fell by 25.2% between January 2020 to August 2020, which negatively affected the usage of packaging in the specialty chemicals segment.

Several new packages satisfy the safety concerns, in addition to providing a greener footprint. Traditionally, many chemical manufacturers have significantly used pails and drums in transporting their products. While these products have several benefits over competitive materials, new products are satisfying a significant gap in the market sustainability.

For instance, bag-in-box and industrial bulk containers allow for more product-per-package, and they are collapsible, reducing landfill space and reducing transportation costs.

However, the changing regulatory standards, fluctuations in raw material costs and growing waste levels and increasing environment wastage regulations are expected to hamper market growth for some of the Chemical Packaging products.

Key Market Trends

Bags and Sacks to Witness Significant Growth rate

  • Paper and biodegradable sacks are being preferred over plastic sacks or bags, due to the increasing concern over plastic packaging waste generated across the globe. This has led to governments adapting to alternative sources such as biodegradable packaging. The United States accounts for only 4% of the world's population and generates 2% of global Municipality Solid Waste (MSW). It is also stated that the United States produces about 106.2 kg of plastic waste per person per year.
  • The rapid shift towards sustainable packaging solutions is further stimulating the sack providers to innovate and provide recyclable or sustainable sacks for industrial purposes. For instance, ExxonMobil offers a range of performance PE polymers, including Exceed XP, and ExxonMobil HDPE, amongst other products to create several opportunities to create differentiated, sustainable heavy-duty sack solutions.
  • Further, today, Poland can be called the prominent country of the chemical industry in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. According to the Central Statistical Office, the chemical sector in Poland employs around 300,000 people, which accounts for 11% of employment in the total industry within Poland. The biggest breakthrough in the development of the chemical industry in Poland, which awaits the country in the coming years, will be the development of refining, petrochemical and plastics processing industries. Such trend would lead to more demand of bag and sacks in coming time.
