Storage Tank  Market Synopsis


Storage Tank Market is projected to be worth USD 17.72 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 4.25% during the forecast period (2022-2030). The market was valued at USD 13.12 billion in 2021.


Storage tanks are nothing but containers that are used to store liquid or semi-solid products such as petroleum products, chemicals, milk, water, and petrochemicals. They are available in various shapes such as vertical and horizontal cylindrical, open top and closed top, and flat bottom, cone bottom, slope bottom, and dish bottom. There are two types of storage tanks–aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) and underground storage tanks (USTs). ASTs can be used to store materials such as petroleum, waste matter, water, chemicals, and other hazardous materials, all while meeting strict industry standards and regulations. USTs are used for storing either petroleum or certain hazardous substances. These tanks are built according to the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) UST regulations, which were effective from 2015 in India and the states without a State Program Approval.


The growing oil and gas industry, the increasing adoption of storage tanks to improve fuel economy, the growing use of water in the industrial and commercial sector, rising adoption of poly water tanks, and increased replacement of aging chemical storage tanks are some of the key factors driving the global market.


The high initial installation costs of storage tanks that are used for storing hazardous products and faulty installation and the inadequate operating and maintenance services are hindering the market growth. However, the rapid industrialization and urbanization, the rising demand for CNG vehicles, rapidly developing petrochemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and pulp & paper industries in emerging nations, and the growing demand for portable water tanks are providing ample opportunities for growth of this market.
