Asia’s Prospering Export Potential Favors Steel Drums Adoption
“Being one of the key industries driving the demand for steel drums, the resurgence of chemicals domain has been benefiting steel drums manufacturers in recent past. Growing market value of industrial bulk containers is directly translating into the propelling demand for steel drums for industrial applications,” says a senior research analyst at the company. “Developing Asian economies are likely to create a heap of investment opportunities in the chemicals & solvents, oil & gas, and export industries,” the analyst adds further.

A steadily improving scenario of chemicals, solvents, and oil export across APEJ, especially in Southeast Asian countries, is favoring the growth of steel drums market in the region. While exporters are preferring steel drums for bulk packaging, it is more likely that steel drums would encounter lucrative opportunities in the non-hazardous materials packaging and transport section owing to their attributes facilitating the shipment.
