Flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC), or bulk bags, refer to industrial packaging materials used for storing dry, granular and semi-liquid products. They are large, cubic, bendable containers manufactured using coated or uncoated woven fabric with loops to facilitate convenient storage and movement. U-panel, circular, four-panel and baffle bags are among the most commonly used FIBCs. These bags are used to contain toxic, non-toxic and free-flowing products, such as chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, rubber and agriculture and food products. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, such as transportation, mining, manufacturing, agriculture and waste handling.
Rapid industrialization across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Chemical and agriculture product manufacturers are increasingly using FIBCs to handle grains, rice, potatoes, cereals and liquid chemicals. These bags are also used to store and transport construction materials, such as carbon black, steel, alloys, minerals, cement and sand. Furthermore, increasing environmental consciousness among the masses and the rising demand for lightweight, biodegradable and bulk packaging material for pharmaceutical products, is also stimulating the market growth. Pharma-grade FIBC bags are used for storing various medical products and preventing contamination. In line with this, product innovations, such as the development of FIBC variants as hygiene packaging solutions, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Food-grade FIBC bags are manufactured using virgin polypropylene resins that aid in preventing spoilage of perishable goods and are suited for storing packaged products in bulk quantities.
