An increasing number of players in the bag-in-box containers market have been focusing on capacity and geographical expansion in recent years. Offering cost-effective solutions for applications such as smoothies, dairy products, liquid detergents, and cereals has also been a major goal for manufacturers.
A recent trend that Transparency Market Research (TMR) has observed is the introduction of additional features to containers, such as aseptic liner bags and changeable liner bags. Options such as sight glass, which enables the user to check the contents and filling levels, and dropside packaging have also been introduced in the market. “Providing end users such as food establishments and quick service restaurants such innovative solutions is an important move by players to further their share in the market,” a TMR analyst states.
Some of the leading vendors providing bag-in-box container solutions are Smurfit Kappa Group,CDF Corporation, Optopack Ltd, Amcor Limited, DS Smith, Liqui-box, Scholle IPN, and TPS Rental Systems Ltd.
The introduction of cubitainers as an alternative to bag-in-box containers is anticipated to dampen the sales of the latter. Cubitainers are an economical and space-saving way of storing, transporting, and dispensing liquid products such as reagents, cooking oils, chemicals, buffer solutions, and soaps and detergents. “The advantages of cubitainers over conventional bag-in-box containers are many, which poses a severe threat to the bag-in-box containers market,” the analyst reveals. Moreover, additional equipment costs associated with bag-in-box container packaging are likely to restrict the adoption of these products in several end-use industries, especially those in the emerging markets of the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific.
