Flexitanks Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 - 2026
Flexitanks Market – Overview
Flexitanks are polymer bags generally made up of polyethylene and polypropylene, used for transportation of bulk quantities of liquids. Single-use, multilayer flexitanks are among the significantly used types of flexitanks due to several advantages offered by them. Edible liquids such as wine and fruit juices and edible oils such as palm oil, cotton seed oil, coconut oil, crude palm kernel & babassu oil, etc. are heavily exported liquids in flexitanks. Polyethylene forms a major material, by weight, in the overall construction of flexitanks. LLDPE is the polyethylene type primarily used to manufacture flexitanks. All these segments are anticipated to continue to dominate the flexitanks market during the forecast period.
Flexitanks offer several advantages when transporting large quantities of liquids. They prove to be very economical as compared to other alternatives when transporting bulk quantities of liquids in a 20-feet container. Due to this, the demand for flexitanks has been rising significantly in the past few years and is anticipated to continue to rise during the forecast period. Furthermore, the demand for edible liquids and their trade have been increasing significantly, owing to the rise in global population. This is anticipated to drive the flexitanks market.
