When flammable or explosive chemicals are loaded and unloaded in a fast manner, it induces a static charge on their surfaces, thus causing sparks leading to mishaps. Type C FIBCs are specially designed to transport such hazardous chemicals. These are made up of non-conductive polypropylene (PP) fabric. The threads in the fabric are interwoven with conducting threads sewn in a grid pattern. During loading and unloading the conducting threads should be electrically interconnected. Besides, they also need to be connected to ground/earth during the loading and unloading process to ensure the safe use of Type C FIBC bulk bags. It is also advisable that one should not use Type C bulk bags in the case ground connection is unavailable or has been damaged.
Market Dynamics of FIBC Conductive Bags
In the past several years, the global market of FIBCs has developed stable, with an average growth rate of 6.26%. Global capacity of FIBC in 2016 was revenue 3271.43 M USD, and the actual production was estimated to be 260 m units.
Due to increased industrial activity and elongating supply chains, demand for FIBC conductive bags is on a rise. Growing awareness about safety, regulations by the government, recommendations by the UN, and the convenience offered by the very cost-efficient and lightweight FIBC is further pulling the demand for these bags. The FIBC conductive bags market is growing at a robust CAGR.
While China, India, and Turkey are the highest producers of FIBC conductive bags, Americas, Europe and China are the biggest consumers.
Key Regions and Countries in FIBC Market –
Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and UK)
