Inexpensive and Convenient Nature of Industrial Drums to Fuel Global Adoption

One of the significant factors triggering the demand for industrial drums is the convenience and inexpensiveness offered by industrial drums. The performance of the manufacturing sector and industrial output has further supported the demand for industrial drums in the global market. Manufacturing activities in India and China are challenging at one hand and the ASEAN countries are competing to match up to this, thus intensifying the demand for industrial drums.

The performance of European countries has stabilised and is likely to grow at a modest rate resulting in heightened demand for products used for shipping purposes. As there is a high co-relation between industrial output and demand for industrial drums, with a stabilised manufacturing sector output, the enhanced demand for industrial drums is evident. Though the demand for these industrial products is likely to be highly concentrated in the APAC region, a substantial contribution to the global demand is also anticipated from other clusters such as the Middle East and Eastern Europe. The Western Europe and North America markets are likely to post perpetual demand during the forecast period.
