Storage Tank Market overview


According to the latest research report, a 4.25 per cent compound annual growth rate of a CAGR is predicted for the storage tank market size through 2028, bringing in USD 17.72 billion between 2022-2030. USD 13.12 billion was the estimated value of the market in 2021. Water, petrochemicals, chemicals, petroleum byproducts, milk, and other semi-solids may be stored in storage tanks. It is possible to get them in various forms, such as cylinders that are either vertically or horizontally aligned and closed or open tops.


The worldwide storage tank industry is expanding rapidly because of the increasing use of solar thermal power innovation and its attendant growth in power generating capacity. Many hazardous items may be stored in tanks, such as crude oil and wastewater. Oil and gas production is rising, and water usage in manufacturing and commerce is also rising. These factors all contribute to the market's overall size. An increase influences the market's expansion in storage facilities to reduce fuel use. Poly storage tanks and chemical holding tank replacements boost the market's expansion. Materials including petroleum, garbage, water, pharmaceuticals, and other dangerous chemicals may be stored in ASTs, which fulfil high industry requirements and regulations. USTs may be used to store petroleum products or potentially harmful chemicals. As of 2015, these tanks were erected in accordance with EPA UST standards, which were in force in India and the nations that did not have a State Program Approval in place at the time.


This report contains all the information on the global storage tank market analysis and the market strengths. The report also includes the culmination of dynamics, segmentation, key players, regional analysis, and other essential factors. And a detailed analysis of the global storage tank market forecast to 2030 is also included in the report.


Covid 19 Analysis


The storage tank business was unaffected by the new COVID-19 epidemic. After the outbreak, the pandemic caused substantial growth in the world's energy consumption, particularly from the manufacturing industry. The storage tank market was also able to develop consistency throughout the year 2020 because of the rise of the energy market. Despite the pandemic's interruptions, the energy price steadily declined in 2020, contributing to the industry's growth. During the time period under consideration, increased consumer demand is expected.


Market Dynamic



  • Drivers


As the global oil and gas sector continues to rise, so does the need for storage tanks to enhance fuel-efficiency, the growing usage of water in residential and manufacturing settings, and an expansion in the restoration of outdated chemical tanks.



  • Opportunities


Despite this, the rapidly expanding pharmaceuticals and paper and pulp sectors in developing countries are expected to drive demand for storage tanks in the coming years. This industry has a lot of room to develop, given the rising popularity of transportable water tanks.



  • Restraints


The significant starting construction expenditures of storage tanks used to store hazardous materials and, improper installation and insufficient operation & maintenance services are limiting the market's development potential.



  • Challenges


There is also a growing need for storage tanks in various industries, including healthcare coverage, food service, technology, automobile, building and pharmaceuticals. Nevertheless, the industry is expected to be restrained in the next several years by high operational expenses in storage tank building and increases in raw material prices.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis


Water storage tanks are in great demand in rural and urban regions because of the growing population. Freshwater is scarce in both developed and underdeveloped nations. There has been an increase in the demand for water storage tanks due to a scarcity of water supply in many locations. Furthermore, water storage tank needs are being boosted by worldwide building and industrialisation activity.


Growing concerns about saving water and a rise in government control of sewage are the primary factors driving this market's development. As a result, water storage tanks are in the growing market for various corporate and industrial applications, notably in refineries, where water treatment, recycling, and softening are all essential. With a rapidly expanding population and development projects in Asia, this region is expected to be an attractive storage tank market growth.

Regional Analysis


Four primary regions have been identified in the worldwide storage tank market: North America, Europe; Asia-Pacific; and the Rest of the World. As of 2018, Asia-Pacific had the most outstanding of the worldwide storage tank market share, and it is expected to expand at the fastest rate in the coming years. Because of the expanding need for plastic water tanks, water storage tanks, food and beverage production, and the construction of transportation infrastructure for liquid natural gas, India and China have seen a rise in the use of storage tanks. Another factor fueling this market's development is the increasing expenditure by companies from the Middle East and South America.


India and China control a significant portion of the LNG storage tank industry due to their extensive investments in LNG transportation infrastructure. The developing food and beverage industries and the increasing need for plastic water tanks for storage contribute to the growth of the storage tank market value in the area.


Competitive landscape


As a result, many businesses are putting more emphasis on organic development methods, including new introductions and approval. Acquisitions and joint ventures, and partnerships were the most common inorganic development techniques seen in the industry. These initiatives have facilitated the growth of the business and client base of market participants. Because of the growing worldwide need for water storage tanks, market players in this sector may expect profitable growth possibilities in the future.
