Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Rigid Bulk Packaging Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global rigid bulk packaging market: Berry Plastics, Brambles, Greif, Sonoco, and WestRock.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bonar Plastics, Berenfield Containers, BWAY, Chem-Tainer Industries, Hedwin, Hoover Container Solutions, Mauser Packaging Company, Menasha Packaging, Rehrig Pacific, Remcon Plastics, and Schoeller Allibert.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is boosting market growth is the resurgence in demand for material handling containers. There is an increase in demand for material handling containers after the break in demand they faced during the global economic downturn. The growth in the manufacturing of components, parts, and other durable metal products used in the composition of heavy automobiles and machinery is driving the need for innovative packaging in warehouses for their storing, handling, and distribution purposes. The portfolio of material handling containers includes attached-lid containers, heavy-duty rigid and folding containers, and stackable containers.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is globalization and international trade. The two primary elements driving the global rigid bulk packaging market are the innovative progression (which has reduced the cost of transportation) and the increase in the liberalization of the trade and capital market (which has increased export and import activities). Many emerging economies like China, Russia, Brazil, and India are changing their pattern of trade and investment. Demand for oil- and agriculture-based commodities are increasing rapidly. The increase in trade of oil and chemical has also driven the growth of the bulk container market.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the volatility in raw material prices.
