Market Overview

global industrial drums market share is anticipated to touch a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period (2023-2031). 
The industrial drums market is growing at an exponential rate on account of their rising application across several industrial verticals, such as building and construction, food and beverages, chemical and pharmaceutical, and oil and lubricant. Industrial drums have high dimensional accuracy and exceptional overall performance, which is subsequently driving their demand across the globe. They play a vital role in the packaging industry and are extensively used for the transportation of chemicals.

Industrial drums are cost-effective, reusable, recyclable, and have larger storage capacity with high chemical and stress crack resistance. The leading players in the market are collaborating with local players to expand their product portfolio and gain a competitive edge. Companies around the world are actively working to reduce their logistics cost and deliver products at a competitive price, which is further surging the demand for industrial drums for their stacking ability. Increasing environmental awareness has compelled the manufacturers to adopt new packaging standards, further driving the growth. 

Market Dynamics

Market Drivers

Rapidly Expanding Manufacturing Sector to Drive the Market Growth

The industrial drums market’s most prominent driver is the rapidly expanding manufacturing sector as they extensively use industrial drums for packaging. Companies are focusing on delivering high-quality products with safe packaging. Moreover, the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) works to prevent food fraud and microbiological, chemical, or physical contamination during transportation. Thus, the manufacturers prefer industrial drums for packaging in accordance with the HACCP. Recently, Schütz GmbH & Co. KGaA developed Schütz F1 industrial drum, which is in accordance with HACCP and FSSC 22000.   

Rising Government Investments in Infrastructure Projects to Drive the Market Growth

Globally, several infrastructure projects are being initiated for the integration of transportation systems at the regional level. The governments of Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia are heavily investing in the construction of airports, high-speed railways, and ports to increase their economic growth.

Industrial drums are highly durable and reliable and are extensively used for transporting raw materials. In 2018, the government of Thailand announced to invest over USD 45 billion for the next five years to boost the construction activities in the country. In the U.S., the government is organizing several programs such as the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America Program (INFRA) to increase construction activities in the country, further driving the market growth. 

Regional Analysis

Rapid Expansion of the Oil Sector to Drive Asia-Pacific’s Industrial Drums Market

Asia-Pacific leads the industrial drums market and will continue the same during the forecast period. The region is witnessing an increase in global exports of oil, palm oil, wine, and other liquid products, which is subsequently driving the demand for industrial drums across the region. In 2019, Asia accounted for almost 10% of the world’s oil production, and the region is home to leading oil-producing countries such as China, Indonesia, and India. Companies involved in intra-regional trade and exports are extensively using industrial drums for packaging for their impeccable properties.

In China, the government is channeling efforts to increase capital investment in oil production by 20%; currently, the country produces nearly 4 million barrels of oil per day. The Netherlands, India, and China are the leading producers of palm oil across the region. In 2017, Indonesia’s total export value of palm oil reached USD 18.2 billion. Industrial drums have emerged as a cost-effective solution for the transportation and packaging of liquid materials, further driving the demand for industrial drums.
