Fibre Drums, Cans, and Similar Products: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2010
Fibre Drums, Cans, and Similar Products industry covers establishments mainly engaged in production of fibre drums, cans, and fibre tubes made from paperboard. Chemical and industrial manufacturers represent the leading end-users of fibre drums, mainly used for shipping dry goods across different locations. Rising pressure on raw material prices, long-term trends in environmental legislation, and rising focus on global sourcing are some of the factors changing the product mix in the industry of bulk packaging products, which includes drums, cans, and containers. In the scenario of high uncertainty and global crisis, only those shapes, and configurations which feature greater portability, convenience, cheaper prices, and compliance with Green agenda are expected to witness rapid growth.
Paperboard (virgin or recycled) and paper represent the major raw materials used in manufacture of fibre drums, cans, and tubes. Metal crowns and closures, sheet steel, glues, strips, and adhesives also account for a large portion of the raw material cost for this industry. The fibre products industry is witnessing increasing competition from composite cans, steel drums, and corrugated drums. The industry faces tough challenge from rigid bulk packaging containers (RIBCs) as well as flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs).
The United States and Europe dominate the world Fibre Drums, Cans, And Similar Products market accounting for more than 52% revenue share, as stated by the new market research report on Fibre Drums, Cans, And Similar Products. The packaging market in the developed world including the US, Japan and West Europe is either growing at modest pace or is stagnant. On the other hand, the industry in developing nations in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and East Europe is witnessing significant growth. In particular, growth in China and India has been remarkable, largely due to the burgeoning middle class growth in these countries, which is fueling growth in industrial output and hence in packaging. The current economic meltdown has hastened the geographical shift of the balance in packaging industry towards the Eastern world countries.
