By Material Type - Segment Analysis
Polyethylene segment held a significant share in drum liners market in 2019. Usually, drum liners are made from polyethylene, and are intended to fitting in both plastic and steel drums of a number of dimensions. It is a supple material utilized for the gathering, storing, discarding, and management of trash. Polyethylene drum liners are found in areas where industrial packaging of paints, chemicals, pharmaceutical products, and many more items are used or disposed of. Polyethylene drum liners are perfect for high-speed mixing, storing, pumping or shipping pastes, powders or liquids. The high molecular weight and high impact resistance of polyethylene makes it extremely resistant to the effects of a wide range of chemicals.
By Packaging Type - Segment Analysis
Rigid segment held a significant share in drum liners market in 2019. Drum liners are available in various types, including flexible, rigid and semi-rigid variations. These liners are often custom manufactured in various designs, with some featuring an anti-static composition. Rigid drum liners are vacuum formed and are constructed without any seams. Rigid drum liners are leak proof and are molded with a lip to hold the liner in place.
By Size - Segment Analysis
10 to 25 liters segment held a significant share in drum liners market in 2019. Drum liners are typically constructed from polyethylene, and are designed to fit in either steel or plastic drums of various sizes. Available in multiple widths, liners help minimize drum cleaning and replacement (reducing waste) and prevent product contamination. They are used for storing and shipping a variety of materials, such as liquid and raw products, and can hold from a few gallons to over 50 gallons.
By End-User - Segment Analysis
Chemicals and flammables segment held a significant share in drum liners market in 2019 growing at a CAGR of 3.15% during the forecast period. Form-fitting, heat-sealed drum liners do not fold or wrinkle, and eliminate the trapped product and have fold back liners that pull over the rim of the drum. Flexible round bottom drum liners are long enough to gather and tie at the top for quick closing and made with clear low-density polyethylene and FDA approved resins. Round bottom tie-type liners and polypropylene hot-fill liners can be filled with products such as chemicals and flammables that are up to 300 degrees. Round bottom CR (chemical-resistant) liners have a multi-layer nylon-barrier construction that can withstand many chemicals and attack standard polyethylene liners.
The surging COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is anticipated to have a long-term impact on the drum liners market. Hence, companies in the drum liners market are increasing efforts to get a hands-on for the resources they can capitalize on to minimize the impending consequences of COVID-19.
Geography- Segment Analysis
Asia Pacific dominated the drum liners market with a share of more than 39%, followed by North America and Europe. Increasing disposable income and purchasing power of consumers in Asia Pacific are expected to lead to increasing demand for convenient and cost-effective carry bags. Asia Pacific has witnessed relatively good growth over the years due to large production and export of petroleum and oils, which ultimately leads to increase in demand for drum liners across the region. However, many multinational packaging companies are ramping up their investments in Asia Pacific to tap the growing needs of supermarkets and hypermarkets in the region and government support towards boosting manufacturing ecosystem.
