Flexitank Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Flexitank Market grew at a CAGR of 10.8% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 512.7 Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.9% and is expected to reach a valuation of US 1,725.1 Mn by 2032 end.

Throughout the projected period, the market is anticipated to grow in response to rising demand for various liquid worldwide trade and flexitanks’ competitive advantages over more conventional alternatives such as ISO containers, drums, barrels, and IBCs.

Market Dynamic


Flexitanks are designed for efficient, flexible, and economical handling and transporting of liquid goods. Flexitanks have a large interior volume, allowing them to carry larger amounts of liquids than standard ISO containers while remaining lightweight and versatile. This makes them perfectly suited for transporting bulk fluids such as milk, sauces, and chemicals. With flexitanks, fluids safely transport up to four times more products than in other ISO containers on your daily route.

Flexitanks are more economical compared to traditional transportation containers. This is because flexitanks allow for the transporting of bulk cargo as well as small items at the same time. In addition, flexitanks can be stacked together to make a bigger storage unit rather than individual containers. Finally, flexitanks require less labor since no people are needed during the loading and unloading of the tankers.


The impact of COVID-19 pandemic has considerably impacted plastic production. Since the early stage of 2020, North America has been the victim of a severe supply shortage of polyolefins, especially PTFE and PPS. Due to chemical plants being shut down during the early weeks, prices of PVC and PE have skyrocketed. As PVC, PP, and PE use flexitanks, challenges to the flexitank market can be expected.


Globalization and expanding economies have boosted the international wine trade, producing a demand for the product never before experienced. As shipping containerization has increased and cost has decreased, these containers have become widely used worldwide. Their construction is versatile, lightweight, and environmentally friendly, so that they can be shipped easily in all weather conditions. This flexibility means they can be transported in planes, trains, and automobiles, unlike traditional wine racks or bulk cases.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are multi-layer segments projected to ensure the most revenue during the forecast period?

At 65.0% of the market, multi-layer Flexitank had the greatest revenue share. The main advantage of the multi-layer Flexitank is that each layer is very thin and flexible, making it very easy when unloading is done to roll the empty Flexitank to avoid wasting any liquid. The multiple layers also safeguard the cargo from contamination. Oxygen and moisture barriers are vital for transporting food-grade liquids, so that flexitanks will dominate the market in future years.

Why is the food segment expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

In 2021, the food segment application market will rule. The primary driver of the expansion of Flexitanks is ideal for the safe storage and transporting of food-grade liquids, such as juices, wines, milk, syrups, edible oils, etc. Flexitanks offer a more cost-effective and reliable alternative for transporting food liquids via sea, rail, and land.

The Flexitank consists of several layers, each containing pumps and valves that play a vital role in sealing off air and water, making them both airproof and waterproof. This makes sure that the product inside the flexitanks remains intact and uncontaminated. This property makes flexitanks completely safe and secure for transportation.
