In various end-use industries such as petroleum & lubricants, additives, paints, inks, & dyes, building & constructions, among others, steel drums have become the most favoured rigid packing methods for delivering, storage, and warehousing dangerous as well as non-hazardous materials. Steel drum packaging protects protein materials from temperature disruption and also prevents liquid from being spilled.

Thus, steel drums have been the chosen option for liquid producers. Furthermore, the choice of reusability and recycling makes it stand out from other rigid packaging solutions. Given these considerations, the market’s outlook seems bright. In addition, with increasing oil trade in different regions, demand is expected to increase. Steel drum use is significantly higher in regions with increased trade in fuels, additives, and solvents.

According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian chemical sector’s market value is forecast to grow to US$ 232.6 billion by 2022, up from US$ 194.6 billion in 2020. In addition, India’s chemical exports are increasing. Chemical exports totaled US$ 1.88 billion in 2019, increasing to US$ 2.08 billion in 2020. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), China’s annual crude oil imports rose by 10.1 million barrels per day on average in 2019. However, the availability of alternatives such as Fiber Drums will stifle demand development between 2021 and 2027.

Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World are all considered in the geographical overview of the global Steel Drum industry. Because of the participation of major players such as Greif Inc., Mauser Packaging Solutions, and others with high production potential, North America is the leading region in terms of market share around the world.

Furthermore, rising crude oil supply and, as a result, rising exports in the United States are driving up demand for protective packaging solutions including steel drums. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is expected to rise at the fastest pace from 2021 to 2027, owing to an increase in the production and export of lubricants such as oil, paints, and chemicals, which will generate lucrative growth opportunities for the Steel Drum industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
